Modern baby showers are starting to use more adult themes and have become significantly more practical. These days, dads-to-be take part in the celebration, too. Whether you are planning a baby shower for a friend, sister, cousin, or whomever else, here are some of the hottest baby shower trends parents-to-be will surely love:
Baby blue, baby pink, and baby green have always been popular. Pastel colours will always be a favourite when it comes to baby shower trends—with people everywhere constantly reinventing the theme. According to Birthdays Wrapped Up, combining traditional pastels with white or an off-white eggshell colour can bring a touch of classy energy.
For a baby girl, combine baby pinks with rich browns. For baby boys, combine any shade of blue with browns, reds, and off-white for a bold yet soft palette.
Instead of finding out the baby’s gender in an ultrasound room, share the excitement with the shower guests. Ask the doctor to write the gender on a piece of paper, and have it sealed in an envelope. Give the paper to the baker—ask him to make the cake neutral on the outside and either pink, if it’s a girl, or blue, if it’s a boy, on the inside. When parents cut into the cake for the first slice, everyone will find out whether it’s a boy or a girl.
There are many other creative ways to find out if the baby is a boy or a girl. Think of different ideas and always have the ‘wow’ factor in mind.
Can you imagine your husband and his friends cooing around tiny baby clothes during a shower party? Okay, maybe not, but how about a beer party with a diaper drop at the door? Yes, dads are doing it. This kind of baby shower, often called “man shower” or “daddy diaper party,” is a guys-only gathering.
Guests often bring a pack of diapers for the soon-to-be dad. Generally, men love the idea—it’s a great excuse for a few hours of drinking and hanging out with the boys. You will end up with enough diapers that will last for months, too, so it’s really a win-win situation.
The last thing you want to do is use the same ideas that’s been done over and over again for baby showers. These fads can be your inspiration for your next creative and fun-filled baby-on-the-way bash.Read More »
