Oh Baby! It's Time for a Baby Shower!

Oh Baby!  It's Time for a Baby Shower!

Apart from the day the baby arrives, a woman’s baby shower is arguably the most exciting day of her pregnancy. Make your pregnant friend or relative’s day by throwing an extra-special shower just for them. They’ll feel like a million bucks!

Presentation Pointers:
1. Instead of a vase for your fresh flowers, use a baby bottle.  Be sure to choose flowers that fit your color scheme!

2. Make sure you have some fun games planned.  You can find some here.

Don’t forget to fill the house with banners, streamers, and balloons.  Try to get ones with the baby’s name on them.
