Games are an integral part of a baby shower, however, we’ve all been to baby showers where the games are either a bit stilted, gross or embarrassing for the mom-to-be. Make your shower one to remember (for the right reasons!) with our baby shower game tips.

Another important part of planning a baby shower is thinking about food! Yes, you’ll need to feed your guests – but don’t panic, we have some simple ideas that will please just about everyone.
With all of the game-playing, gift-opening and baby weight/length/gender-guessing, you won’t have time for a full sit-down meal.

While everyone’s situation is unique, baby showers are typically hosted by a close friend or family member. In traditional baby shower etiquette, it is considered inappropriate for the mom-to-be or her spouse to host the baby shower, as this can give the impression that their goal is to collect as many gifts as possible.
The host usually takes care of the baby shower planning and organizing – so the soon-to-be mom can relax and enjoy being celebrated with her nearest and dearest.
