Throwing A Baby Shower ?

So what is a baby shower and why should you have one ?

The baby shower is all about celebrating the birth of a new baby. In most cases baby showers are usually thrown for the first born but this has changed in recent years. Typically baby showers are usually just a women only affair but this is also changing. In recent times both men and women are attending some baby showers. In some cases men are even having their own separate events.

Most baby showers are typically held later in the pregnancy when things are all ok and risks are lower. The main reason for having a baby shower is to shower the mum and baby in gifts. In some cases the party can also be a gender reveal. In some countries the baby shower is actually held after the baby is born. So really  there are no hard and fast rules.

There is typically lots of things to think of when planning a baby shower party. It is always a good idea for the party organizer to get the mum to be’s input.

Party Host

Typically the host of a baby shower is either a close friend or family member. All the organizing is usually done by the host but also has the mum’s input.



The baby shower is usually paid for by the host. If you are looking for help with costs you can always ask the other guests to contribute to the budget.

Set a Date

Check with the mum and the main guests like grandparents that they can make the date you choose. Baby showers are usually held during the day on a weekend.


Location is usually determined by budget and the amount of people. The host will quite often have the party at their house. A hired venue is quite common too.

One of the fun parts of having a baby shower is picking a theme. If you know the gender you can pick certain colours or go all out with a certain theme.

Food / Drinks

Food and drinks are usually kept light as the event is on an afternoon. This keeps costs down and you can match the food to your colour scheme as well.
