If you want to encourage a budding Matilda, ask the guests to ‘bring a book not a card’ and write their message in the front cover instead, meaning baby will always think of them when reading the story. Finally, if you’re looking for something a bit fun and with wow factor, a box of ‘open when…’ gifts is a good option. These could include ‘open when baby says their first word’ (champagne), ‘open on 31st October’ (baby’s first Halloween costume) or ‘open when you need a gift for yourself’ (a voucher for her favourite shop) - the world is your oyster.
Baby showers aren’t usually sit down dinner events, so finger food is the name of the game. Asking all the guests to bring a dish allows everyone to feel involved and means less stress for the host. Some cute baby themed food ideas are cupcakes with baby footprints on top (you can buy pre-made ones from the baking aisle in the supermarket or craft shops), gingerbread men/women/babies and babies in pastry blankets (a take on pigs in blankets).
A fun idea to get everyone giggling is ‘guess the size of the bump’ where guests guess the circumference of the mum-to-be’s bump by cutting a piece of string the length they think it is. Once everyone has cut their piece of string the mum-to-be puts them around her waist one by one until the winner is found. Other simple but fun games to try are ‘pin the dummy on the baby’ (a baby shower take on the classic ‘pin the tail on the donkey’) and a nursery rhyme quiz (search online for a template).
