If this is your baby's first party, you'll no doubt want to make it as memorable as possible. You know - so family and friends will be talking about it for years to come :-) Ok, firstly I'll address some of the party items that you will probably need to get, and some of the ideas that you may not have even thought of yet.
If it's free baby shower games that you're looking for, then you're in for a pleasant experience. Not only that, but I have a lot of great information to share with you :-)
This is a game that can be tailor-made for a baby shower party. Another advantage is that it doesn’t need any preparation. It only needs participants.
Make a list of a dozen or more names of animals and Xerox enough copies of this list for each guest. At the party, hand out a list and pencil to all participants.
Buy a selection of small gifts such as candy, soap, nail files, pens and the like. Wrap them up individually in nice pretty paper.
At the baby shower party, when the mother-to-be starts opening her presents, set a timer to ring every 7 minutes. Each time the alarm goes off, whoever has given the gift being opened at that time wins a prize.
This is a game suitable for co-ed, or girls only shower party. It is a real icebreaker and has everyone interacting after only a short time.
Before the event, buy a baby's piggy bank. At the party ask the guests to sit in a circle and put all their loose change in front of them
For those of you with a distinctly quirky side, this party can be loads of fun. It will be anything but formal. In fact it will be "mad" and childish - in keeping with the occasion. Decorate the room and tea table with some playing cards (The King and Queen of Hearts are a must), odd hats (think of the mad hatter), chess pieces and other bits of nonsense.
Baby shower clip art can be used in a variety of ways to create a wonderful shower atmosphere - long before the party starts! You can use clip art to design your own shower invitations, thank you notes and more. You can even print out some of them on large size paper to use at the shower to create or enhance a theme.
If you are fortunate to have sunny weather where you are, this is a simple baby shower theme that can be held outdoors. Just think of the mess you will save in your home.
Whether you are the expectant couple, a family member, or just a friend, trying to figure out what the perfect gift would be - that would benefit both mom and baby, is not an easy task - believe you me :-)
