A Backyard Blast

While gain­ing in pop­u­lar­i­ty, the back­yard par­ty or bar­beque is still con­sid­ered to be some­what unique, as it strays away from the dain­ty fin­ger sand­wich­es baby show­er that most of us con­sid­er to be the tra­di­tion­al norm. One of the great things about host­ing this kind of large par­ty is that every mem­ber of the fam­i­ly can join in on the cel­e­bra­tions; the gents, the kids, and even the fam­i­ly pets.

Gifts for the dad-to-be could include six packs and oth­er guy-gear that will make his job a lit­tle bit more man­age­able once he is on mid­night dia­per duty.

Sci-Fi Fun

For the sci-fi-lov­ing par­ents, a baby show­er that incor­po­rates some of their favorite sci­ence fic­tion tele­vi­sion shows or movies can be a ton of fun. From a Star Wars or a Star Trek-themed baby show­er, to a Doc­tor Who or even a retro E.T.-themed baby show­er; there are no lim­its to where your cre­ativ­i­ty and love of sci­ence fic­tion could take your baby show­er.

Cocktail Party

Nat­u­ral­ly the moth­er-to-be can’t indulge in any adult bev­er­ages, but the bev­er­ages served do not nec­es­sar­i­ly have to be alco­hol-infused. There are count­less vir­gin cock­tails that can be a love­ly and ele­gant addi­tion to a cock­tail par­ty that is every bit as fun as you’d hope it would be.

A cock­tail par­ty baby show­er is a great oppor­tu­ni­ty for the expec­tant par­ents to enjoy one of their last ele­gant evenings alone before their lit­tle one makes his or her grand entrance.

A Lake or River Cruise

What bet­ter way to enjoy spend­ing time with friends and fam­i­ly, cel­e­brat­ing the new addi­tion to the fam­i­ly than with a gor­geous lake or riv­er cruise. Many of the com­pa­nies that host plea­sure cruis­es will be able to accom­mo­date a baby show­er, and all of your invit­ed guests.

To avoid the need to haul gifts off of the boat at the end of the cruise, ask your guests to have gifts deliv­ered, or opt for gift cards in lieu of gifts.

The Fund-Raising Baby Shower

For the par­ents who have every­thing they need for their lit­tle ones, a baby show­er is an excel­lent oppor­tu­ni­ty to raise funds or col­lect items for a favorite char­i­ty. You could ask your guests to bring along non-per­ish­able food items, includ­ing baby for­mu­la, to donate to area food banks, or ask your guests to bring dog and cat food to donate to your local ani­mal shel­ter.

Donat­ing new and gen­tly used children’s cloth­ing to area women’s shel­ters is also sure to be great­ly appre­ci­at­ed. Trans­form­ing your baby show­er into an oppor­tu­ni­ty to give to those who have less is some­thing that will be incred­i­bly reward­ing in count­less ways.

Your baby show­er can be as unique and cre­ative as you’d like for it to be. There are no hard and fast rules about the theme your baby show­er needs to have. So if you’d like to incor­po­rate a jew­el­ry par­ty or a pool par­ty into your baby show­er then you should do so! A pool par­ty is sure to pro­vide plen­ty of splash­ing fun for those hot sum­mer days.
