Party On: Celebrating with a Baby Shower

By Jeana Lee Tahnk

Planning a baby shower, whether your own or for someone else, is such a fun activity. There are so many amazing online resources for baby shower idea these days - plenty more than when I had my first one - and so many fun gift ideas such as those ingenious diaper cakes, adorable baby shoes and onesies with cute little sayings. Pinterest alone will give you more inspiration than you'd ever need.

Planning my first shower consisted of my sister, my husband and I flipping through lots of magazines, ripping out pages to come up with ideas. Like many baby showers these days that invite both genders, I also wanted it to be more of a gathering of friends than an official baby shower so the whole women-only rule was not in effect. A new baby should be celebrated by everyone and ours was a good excuse to catch up with friends, eat good food and celebrate the baby.

Speaking of food, the hard and fast rule for any shower - or any event for that matter - is make sure you have more than enough to feed the hungry masses. My shower food choice just happened to be Southern food, a nod to North Carolina, where we had just moved from. BBQ chicken, slaw, ribs, corn bread and baked beans filled those chafing dishes, satisfying our guests and, more importantly, the pregnant woman.

And because I wanted it to be more like a regular party, I broke other baby shower rules and forwent the party games (gasp!). Nor did I open gifts in front of the guests - I've been at baby showers where the gift-opening lasted two hours, and people definitely start to lose interest after the 11th adorable outfit. But you will get your fair share of adorable outfits, ones that will make you so excited to meet your little one. Other welcomed gifts are necessities like diapers and wipes, of course, and any other item that other parents have come to rely on themselves, whether it's a specific brand of blankets or teething toy that you wouldn't otherwise know about.

To have some semblance of it being a baby shower, I did have a couple of stations set up where people could suggest names or decorate onesies. We decorated with a few baby pictures of my husband and me, and included little candy baby shoes on the cupcakes. A picture of a baby rattle adorned the favor bags.

A baby shower is really your way to celebrate the momentous life experience of having a baby. Whether you want to have an all-chocolate dessert bar, open all the presents right when guests get there or have huge amounts of fried chicken, the choice is yours. With everything you go through during the pregnancy, you should have at least one day to totally indulge your every whim. Mine just happened to be corn bread, and lots of it.
