Choosing a Baby Shower Theme

Before you start planning invitations, decorations, or baby shower cakes, it helps to have an idea of what theme you would like your shower to have. If you know the gender of your new baby, you can have a traditional baby-related theme. On the other hand, if you're keeping the gender a surprise, you can plan for a neutral theme. Some options include:

  • Garden
  • Jungle
  • A favorite childhood story
  • Circus
  • Lullaby
  • Nautical

Finding a Baby Shower Location

When you're doing baby shower planning in Palo Alto, there are plenty of venue options available.

At home: Throwing a baby shower at home is always a popular choice. It's familiar, comfortable, and private. Additionally, you have access to everything you need and everyone knows where the bathroom is.

Restaurant: Restaurants are good choices because you don't have to do any cooking or cleaning. Simply find out how many people are coming, choose a restaurant that can handle that number, and call ahead to make a reservation.

Spas: Spas are becoming more popular as baby shower venues because everyone gets a chance to relax and unwind while mom-to-be gets pampered.

Other venue options include:

  • Garden
  • Hotel
  • Banquet hall
  • Park
  • Tearoom

Planning Baby Shower Games

Baby shower games are also an anticipated part of any event. There are many fun and unique games to help make your baby shower memorable. A few options include:

Guess Who: guests try to match childhood facts about mom and dad to the right person

Guess the Baby: guests bring their own baby pictures and see who can match the most pictures

Place the Baby on the Mommy: a twist on Pin the Tail on the Donkey with a blow up picture of the mom-to-be and a cutout picture of a baby. Whoever gets the baby closest to the belly wins.

Birthing Babies: the night before, freeze tiny plastic babies in ice cubes. When guests arrive, put their ice cube in water and ask them to guess how long it takes before their baby is born. Whoever guesses the closest time wins.

Putting Together a Baby Shower Menu

The baby shower menu is another place where you can get creative. If you have a theme, you can plan the menu around that theme. You can also choose to have a catering company serve a buffet. Other options include:

  • Potluck
  • Finger foods
  • Dessert party
  • Brunch
  • Light dinner
