Ideas For A Perfect Baby Shower Party: Planning Tips
Holding a baby shower party is a tradition that has been incorporated to the American culture just recently. It is held to help the parents collect a set of infant layettes and help them prepare things that the baby needs after birth.
Almost anyone can hold baby-themed parties but this is usually left to a relative or friend who will most likely host the party itself and arrange everything from the guest invitation, catering and party games and receiving the gifts for the parents and the baby.
You cannot afford to throw a baby party without you having all the necessary “daggers and knives” needed to confront and battle the problems beset to parents planning to going into this event.
Baby Shower Themes
If you are a fanatic in terms of party themes, your skills and enthusiasm will prove to be beneficial for this special occasion.
Winnie the Pooh and Spiderman and other cartoon superheroe themes are best if you have friends who also are parents and have children of their own. You may either allow kids to come over or have an all-women or all-men birthday party.
Most American families organize more than one birthday shower party, with one intended for distant family members, relatives and friends, while others are organized especially for workmates.
If you are organizing a strictly “theme-oriented” party, you may ask your guess to dress up appropriately as well. This will give more excitement to the occasion and will give your audience more sense of belonging to the party.
Invitations are something that must be well written in polished grammar and one that reflects truly the theme of the occasion.
For invitations, you can have them manufactured and customized by a party planner or a graphic web designer which has knowledge in invitation and calling card customization.
It would be best if you could have someone do this for you for free if you are not expecting a large guest. This will save a lot of money and help you use it for other more important stuff.
Food and beverages are also the best part of the event. This should coincide with your party theme and should fit well with the people whom you are actually inviting.
There must be a consensual agreement on both parties as to what type of food to be served and what kind of beverages to prepare.
Fun Party Games:
Armful of Babies
Armful of Babies is one of the fun babyshower games. It's a race to see who can diaper the most flour babies.
You Will Need :
- Any number of players
- Bags of flour (5 - 10 lb)
- Roll of paper towels
- Adhesive tape
How To Play :
Players assume the role of caretaker one at a time at a table.
Using one sheet of paper towel as a diaper, the caretaker must quickly wrap the diaper around the bottom of the bag and affix with tape.
The caretaker then must hold the diapered baby (cradle in arm, hand, between the legs - get creative) while diapering the next baby.
The task gets more difficult as more babies get diapered.
A player's turn ends whenever they accidentally drop a bundle of joy.
Remove any diapers on the "babies" before starting the next player's turn.
Who Wins :
After everybody has gone a round, award prizes to the player who successfully wrapped the most babies.
The mother-to-be may want to be the judge in this game as the flour "babies" can be too heavy, but the rest of the guests should have no problems showing off their diapering skills.

Now for some of my terribly sophisticated humour – lol!
From the Sydney Morning Herald Australia comes this story of a central west couple who drove their car to K-Mart only to have their car break down in the parking lot.
The man told his wife to carry on with the shopping while he fixed the car there in the parking lot.
The wife returned later to see a small group of people near the car. On closer inspection she saw a pair of male legs protruding from under the chassis.
Although the man was in shorts, his lack of underpants turned private parts into glaringly public ones.
Unable to stand the embarrassment she dutifully stepped forward, quickly put her hand UP his shorts and tucked everything back into place.
On regaining her feet she looked across the hood and found herself staring at her husband who was standing idly by.
The mechanic, however, had to have three stitches in his head.
