Say “No Way!” to Boring Baby Showers. 10 Baby Shower Ideas to Remember!

Posted April 13th, 2011 by Lullabelly

 

No one says a baby shower has to be a brunch in someone’s house where you play games and open presents.

No one says the theme has to be Winnie the Pooh or princess baby.

Been there, done that…many times.

So you want something different, right? You want to add a little something-something, a little oomph and a little bling to your baby shower to make it something you and your friends will remember forever.

So let’s scrap the traditional boring baby shower and consider some unique options:
 
Take It to the Spa: Why not gather the girlfriends and get pedicures at your favorite spa. Most salons will work out a group rate that makes it affordable to the host(s) and they may provide space for the guest of honor to open presents and enjoy sparkling juice and appetizers.
 
Send in the Experts: While baby shower games can be fun, they get, well, repetitive if you’ve been to enough baby showers over the years (and boy will you!). Instead of games, hire a make-up artist to come in and give tips to creating dramatic looks. Or hire a jewelry designer who will teach each guest to make her own pregnancy bling! Or bring in a stylist who can talk about what it means to be a fashionable and hot mama! Experts make it fun and each guest will leave feeling like they got something out of it.
 
Oh, Yes, I Said Pole Dancing: Ok, so many of you may be squirming in your seats, but why not go to a pole dancing studio and look into a few moves that both expecting and non-expecting moms can use to seduce their mates? Pole dancing is innocent (I didn’t say hire a stripper or anything like that!). I’m certain your shower will be the most talked about one in the history of baby showers! Or if pole dancing simply isn’t for you, what about a prenatal yoga class at your home with your closest friends? You can hire a private instructor to come in and show you all how to have OM moments even during pregnancy.
 
Cocktails and Pickles in a Blanket, Anyone?: Make your baby shower an evening cocktail party. Ask all your friends to glam it up! You can serve sparkling juices, pickles in a blanket and ice cream parfaits. Hire a local DJ to play music with a “baby” theme.
 
An Idea from “The Bachelor”: OK, if you like the show like me, then maybe you’ll know I stole this idea from The Bachelor playbook. On the show the women have to write a song or poem and perform it in front of the Bachelor. He then picks the one he likes best for a date. So you do that, ok? Make your guests get silly and have some fun. They may grimace and groan, but they’ll do it. Just get that Flip Camera ready for recording!
 
Play Dress Up: Make your baby shower one your guests have to dress up for. Maybe it’s a masquerade ball or you ask each guest to dress the hot style of the year they were born (I’ll pull out my bell bottoms, what fun!). Or have them dress as their favorite singer. When they show up they’ll be introduced to Mr. Karaoke Machine and they’ll have to belt out their favorite tune.
 
Remember, whether you want a traditional baby shower or something a little spicy and different, be sure to communicate your ideas with your best girlfriend so she can deliver on what you want… after all, this is YOUR baby shower!

    I actually do such as the way in which you’ve framed this unique concern and yes it really does offer my family loads of fodder for consideration. On the flip side, owing to precisely what I’ve experienced, I just hope when other reviews pile on that folks remain on point along with no way get yourself started a tirade involving some other news of the day. Anyway, appreciate this fantastic point and while I really don’t concur by using it in totality, I respect your standpoint.
