Joy is in the air. You're going to be a mother! Now it’s time to invite your friends and family over to celebrate your upcoming child with you. Oh, and for them to give you presents. That being said, you don’t want to simply hang up a sign that says presents with a downward arrow. You want to give your guests a good time as you celebrate a new life. It’s time to deliver on the goods and deliver on an amazing baby shower for your guests, for your baby, and for you. Here’s how:


Don’t skimp on the food.


We’re not saying you need lobsters and caviar, but more than sun chips and salsa would definitely be a good idea. Peruse Pinterest for some creative snack food ideas and find some dishes that will excite your guests and make your party one to remember. If you’re having an evening party, stuck to appetizers. If it’s a brunch deal, finger sandwiches and fruit-based dishes would be a good idea. If it’s evening, be sure to have great deserts. 


Games are a good time for all. 


Keep the good times rolling with games for your party guests. They don’t have to be complicated, and don’t have to involved donkeys and/or tails. One fun game is baby bingo, where the guests write the name of presents they predict you will receive. As you open presents, the guests mark them on their sheets. Get five in a row and win a prize. It’s a game that turns present time into a fun activity.


Go LIVE for those who couldn’t make it. 


If you have friends or family that sent in gifts and couldn’t make it, hop on Facebook and live stream your shower. That way those out-of-town individuals can still get in on the fun.
