Baby Parties: Five Hot Trends

TESTING VIRAL INSTAGRAM SLIME TRENDS! RAINBOW GLITTER SLIME, INSTANT CLEAR SLIME, NAPPY SLIME + MORE (September 2018).

The Classic Baby Shower - with its custom-tailored games, buffet and mountains of gifts - is still hip and popular. But many expectant families are developing other ideas for how they want to shape the party. And of course you can give your baby party your own personal touch. Here are five hot trends for baby parties.

first The eco-party

Ask to bring only second-hand gifts. Keep in mind, however, that some items, such as car seats, should be discontinued. But toys, clothes or accessories such as bedding can be passed on well.

Of course, you can also put all together for a great present, instead of appearing with many small parcels. For example, each guest could knit a square and all squares are then stitched together into a cuddly baby blanket.

If you do not have so many passionate knitters among your guests, then you can also hold a little knitting course - maybe some are looking forward to finally learning it.

More Eco-friendly Ideas:

  • Distribute Flowering Potted Plants as Favors
  • Only Offer Dishes from Local Foods
  • Do not Send Invitations to Paper
  • Wrap the Gifts in Recycled Paper or cloth

2. The big revelation: boy or girl?

Instead of having your baby's gender told by your doctor, share this exciting event with your party guests!

Ask the doctor who is doing the ultrasound scan to write your baby's gender on a piece of paper. Then hand over this note to the organizer of your baby shower. For example, she can get a cake that has a neutral color from the outside but pink or blue biscuits inside. Then the expectant mother cuts the cake - and everyone can see if she gets a boy or a girl.

If the expectant parents already know the sex, they can of course also arrange a big announcement at the party.

third The Repeat Party

Does it make sense to have a baby party for a second or third child? After all, she probably already has everything you need for a baby.

On the other hand, why should not the second and third (or fourth!) Children be honored with a celebration? It does not have to be a ""baby shower"" - it can be a gentle little shower! A relaxed get-together with less focus on the gifts is a nice motto.

Homemade gifts are a good idea. For example, all porcelain dishes can be painted for the unborn child - even larger children, who can then have fun and proudly present a gift for the baby.

Another idea: Concentrate on diapers at the party. They can provide for a delicious meal, spend some nice hours together and ask every guest to bring a large package of diapers as a gift. Also great: the topic ""fill the fridge"". Each guest brings a ready-cooked frozen dish to fill the freezer for the young family for when they have little time to shop and cook.

4th The Coupon Party

This is by no means as boring as it sounds! Vouchers allow the expecting mother to stretch her budget or even to buy one or the other, which she finds beautiful, but which does not necessarily belong to the list of necessary things. And the guests know that their gift definitely has a benefit.

The gift could be, for example, a shopping coupon from a baby clothes store or a drugstore or even a savings note for Babys Future.

5th The Generation Game

Why not invite all generations together? So grandparents, in-laws - if possible, great-grandparents.

Because most mothers and fathers both work, it's often the grandparents who work to keep children safe. So it makes sense to have them at the party before the new baby is born.

Make sure the expectant grandparents can come and be well accommodated if you need to travel from further afield. After all, nothing is more annoying than planning a perfect party, sending out invitations and then discovering that the most important guests can not come!
