Here at Chez Vous, we’re seeing a trend toward catered baby showers on Staten Island. Because people are so interested in throwing them, we thought that we’d share some of the interesting baby shower ideas that have been making the rounds lately.
The experts over at The Baby Center recently posted an article outlining 6 such ideas.
The green shower
With overall trends taking everyone in a more environment-friendly direction, why would baby showers be any different? You might be wondering, “How do you have a green baby shower?” The answer is simple. Gently used baby clothes! Kids grow up so fast, that many articles of clothing purchased for a child can reasonably be used for a second child.
The man shower
In the past, a baby shower was all about the mom. Not today! These days dads are getting around for a night of cards, wings, and beer but with a baby shower twist. Dads have been setting up a diaper drop for these “man showers” so that guests can give diapers to the baby. Baby gets diapers, Dad gets to relax with friends, and Mom gets a night to herself. Everybody wins!
The gender reveal shower
This option adds a little bit more spectacle to an already fun tradition. By revealing the sex of the child at the baby shower, guests will be kept on the edge of their seats the whole time. Everyone wants to know if it’ll be a boy or a girl, so why not make a big deal out of it?
Sprinkles are for moms with their 2nd child. They’re baby showers without all of the pomp and circumstance. With a second child, there’s a good chance that you’ll have a lot of what you need for the baby, but there’s still room to celebrate. Gifts are significantly scaled-down during a sprinkle. These parties are more about celebrating the child, and less about making sure you have all of the necessities.
The cash registry shower
Cash registry showers allow new parents to be a bit more flexible with the gifts. The shower will be more traditional except for the caveat that gifts should be cash or cash coupons. These showers are ideal for couples who don’t yet know the sex of their child. Giving cash instead of other gifts reduces the need for complicated exchanges.
The grandmother shower
It’s 2013, and that means that lots of baby boomers are becoming first-time grandmas. These ladies are gathering to have a grandbaby shower of their own. A new member of the family is precious, so the more celebrating the better!
