A lot of people, however, don't know where to start, or what theme's to have - your imagination and budget are the only things that will stop you so I have put together some idea's for you!
I absolutely adore the idea of a fingerprint design for a baby shower guestbook depending on the amount of guests attending. Not only that, this then works as a great decoration for your little ones nursery!
I love this design from PSXODesign on Etsy which is a personalised download digital file for you to print yourself for only £4.62. Howeve,r if you didn't know the sex of the baby you could also use rainbow colours for your ink to make it bright and beautiful for either a boy or girl!
There are some very messy, and a bit questionable games when it comes to baby showers, but a lot depends on what YOU want from a baby shower. What you know mum would like? Is it a full on party mode or a more civilised event?
These type of advice cards always go down well for mums-to-be especially if it is their first baby and guests are attending who already have children. Alternatively, you can also get prediction cards which create great fun for everyone to see who can get the closest to the babies arrival date, time, weight etc.
Neutral colours work well if mum-to-be doesn't know the sex of the baby. This "Little One" theme for a baby shower has a full range of items on the website. Or alternatively, look at colour mixing with this beautiful Chevron Bunting with other items to match too!
If buying gifts, look for things that can be useful. Babies will get a LOT of clothes and may grow out of them before they get to wear them all. Look at getting things which are useful, and those things that parents need but don't always know about. Nappy Cakes are a popular gift, and work as a centrepiece for any Baby Shower Table too!
And last but not least - lets not forget Dad! Many people buy a little something for Dad, or all guests bring something to pop in a "Dad Survival Bucket" I have to say personally I love this book of Baby Tips for Dads!
Whatever you decide to do for your Baby Shower - I am sure it will be a wonderful time - and of course, be celebrating the impending arrival of a much loved little one.
