Baby Shower Decorating and Supplies

Once you have your theme set and your guest list, it's time to buy the decorations and supplies. Centerpieces, streamers, balloons....the possibilities are endless!

Depending on where you're having the shower (restaurant or at someone's home) will determine how much you'll need to buy. Check with the restaurant to see what type, if any, decorations are allowed. If the shower is in someone's home, you'll also need plates, cups, napkins and utensils. It's easy to match decorations with a theme with the wide variety of designs available for baby showers.

 

Baby Shower Games

To guarantee a fun baby shower, include games (and prizes)! From printable games to "get-out-of-your-chair" fames, we have a great selection to choose from.

Some of the games require next to nothing, others need special items so make sure you plan ahead. Assemble everything you'll need to do whichever games you choose and make sure you have enough prizes! Get ideas in our Baby Shower Games section, where you'll find fun games to keep your guests enjoying every minute of the shower!

 

It's Baby Shower Time!

The big day is finally here and you're going to have a great time! Use these last few tips to stay on track, and most of all....have fun!

Use your Baby Shower Planning Checklist to make sure you are organized and you don't forget a thing.

Once guests start arriving, try to make them feel as welcome and comfortable as possible. Some may not know anyone else, so introductions are important to break the ice. Offer each guest a drink and if you are providing appetizers this is the time to make them available. Once the guest of honor arrives; present opening, the main food and then the games are next. You can do it in any order, whatever you feel most comfortable with and depending on the time of day (you don't want your guests starving while presents are being opened).

You've worked hard, and the mom-to-be is sure to love her shower! Now go have fun!
