Don't say "baby" When guests arrive, you need to give each one of them a pin or some other object, you will see why. When all guests arrive, familiarize them with the rules of the game. They can't say the word "baby" till the end of the evening or till the moment you decide to open presents. The one who hears someone else say the word, can take away the rule breaker's pin. At the end of the game she who has more pins - wins a prize.

Who's is in the picture? When sending out invitations, mention that guests should bring their baby pictures along with them. When guests arrive, they have to put their pictures in the box (wrong side up). After all guests arrive, mix the pictures and put numbers on them. Attach them to some kind of board so everyone can see them. Each guest has to guess who the people in the pictures are. At the end of the game the guest with the biggest number of right answers wins a prize.

Mom & Dad. For this game both parents have to be present. Get them in separate rooms and ask baby-questions. How did they find out they would have a baby? When and where? What do they want their baby to become? How do they think he / she may look when grown up? Then get both parents in the same room and see if they can guess each other's answers.


Opening gifts

When opening gifts you can play a game, too. The person whose gift is about to be open has to describe it, and the mother-to-be has to guess what's inside.



Baby shower foods. There is a lot of things you can make: hotdogs shaped as swaddled babies, a car / a doll cake, colorful rainbow cupcakes, and cupcakes with baby-decorations on top

  • Don't talk about labor or C-section and don't remind mommy how painful it is.
  • If you see that mother-to-be is exhausted, don't pick loud games, and ask her if she wants to take a nap.
