Creative baby shower ideas include thematic showers, such as weather- or bird-themed showers, or fun events such as baby gender voting that actively involve guests in the shower. Thematic foods and gift placements are some other creative ideas.
Trivia keeps baby shower guests engaged, especially when the trivia is themed towards a member of the family or a topic in which many participants are well-versed. If most of the guests are parents, a trivia topic involving growth facts and milestones is a creative way to keep them occupied. Other trivia subjects include cartoons, nursery rhymes and fictional TV families.
Another creative idea is to display a book in which participants can write advice for the expecting parent. In addition to actively involving the baby shower participants, this idea provides the expecting parent a valuable tool once the child is born.
A variety of food styles can make a baby shower especially fun. Brunch-themed baby showers keep guests well-fed, while fresh foods provide a healthy alternative. Other ideas to consider include showers for specific groups, such as Fathers Only or Mothers Only baby showers. By separating the parties in this way, each parent has the opportunity to create his or her preferred party atmosphere.
