Set The Date
Traditionally, a baby shower is held sometime during the last two months of a pregnancy, although some parents prefer to shower be held after their baby has actually arrived. Weekend afternoon is the most popular time for baby shower.
Finalizing A Guest List
However, modern couples often choose to invite both men and women to the event. Chances are good that you do not personally know anyone who should be invited to the shower.
Settle On A Theme
Ask her if she has chosen a decorating theme for his nursery, as this could be an excellent shower theme. A theme can help guide you in the selection of baby shower invitations, decorations and refreshments. You can also specify on baby shower invitation if the party is gender neutral or if it will be a gender reveal. A gender reveal is ideal for those prospective parents who do not to know or want to share the sex of their baby until the big day.
Some critics have denounced gender reveal party as an excuse to get gifts, but most couples I know (or have heard of) who planned a gender reveal did not ask about gifts. Many couples view gender reveal party as a great excuse for the family to get together and celebrate pregnancy, or even as a substitute for a baby shower. Gender reveal parties have been around for a few years, but now, gender reveal party is one that has taken the world by storm, and there are plenty of photos documenting gender reveal parties popping up on Facebook feeds everywhere. And many of us have these friends or family members that you almost have to beg if you want them to stop buying their newest little family member all these cute baby clothes!
Design Your Invitations
Essential information that will be printed on each baby shower invitation includes the mom-to-be’s name, the date and time of the shower, location and address of the person to whom the guests must RSVP, gift registry, and any requested gift items or baby shower theme shower, name and contact information. Even better, you can start with a baby shower invitation template to suit your theme, and then customize it using their card crafting software. Baby shower invitations should be sent at least three weeks in advance.
Before any invitations are sent (or any phone calls or e-mail messages), make sure to run the guest list by mom. If you have time but, homemade invitations will provide the guest with a bit of the host’s personal touch. In order to ensure that everyone has enough time to buy gifts, arrange time off and so on. Invitations will be sent 4-6 weeks before the shower.
If you want to avoid having a specific gender on the card what you are looking for is a gender neutral theme. If on the other hand you don’t know or the parents do not want to share their child’s gender until the baby shower you can choose a gender reveal invitation. A gender reveal is a lot of fun when it is done right, and it can be a complete disaster when the gender reveal is not handled right. It really does depend on a lot of aspects that we have looked at, or that we will look at here. A gender reveal can have a specific invitation, these usually come in the form of “Is it a…? Boy? Girl?” style of card that has both bows and beaus on the card. But there are plenty of invitations for a nice baby gender reveal party that do not need to be so specific. You can get more of an idea of what types of gender reveal necessities you’ll need if that is the type of baby shower you plan on hosting.
Still, many of the basics still apply, but when it comes to a reveal, mum is most definitely the word.

Choose A Venue
If you’re throwing a summer baby shower, you may want to consider a park or botanical garden as well. Your church (or Church of the parents-to-be) can be an excellent option, which can be a neighborhood Clubhouse.
Select A Few Games
Much of the baby shower time will be spent on visits, see the expectant parents open their gifts and enjoying refreshments. Still a game or two is almost a must. Here are a few that require minimal materials and preparation at the same time, plenty of laughs. You must use four diaper pins for each invited guest. Upon arrival at the shower, give each guest four diaper pins attach to their collar or blouse. Then instruct them not to say the word “baby” or they will lose one of their legs to the guest who catches them. The guest with the most pins at the end of the shower wins a prize. The mom-to-be keeps all diaper pins.
One fear that people have is that the games will suck. But just because you have been part of some lousy games, that does not mean that can’t ensure that your baby shower games that are actually awesome.
Elegant Baby shower refreshments
Cake, vegetable trays and punch are classic baby shower refreshment offerings. But it is really up to you to decide what you want to serve at the shower. Choose foods that go with your theme or just choose recipes that are easy to prepare and serve at room temperature.
