2. Display DIY Chalkboard Signs

Easily decorate your home or venue with chalkboard signs. Mini chalkboard signs are great for displaying the baby’s name and arrival date.

3. Serve Drinks in Creative Ways

Think outside the box when serving up drinks. Tie paper party straws around baby bottles with baker’s twine and add a little charm for an extra touch! Guests can fill up their bottles with the drink of their choice.

4. Incorporate a Few Traditional Games

It isn’t a baby shower without a game or two! Baby shower games are a great way to get all guests involved, especially if there will be a few who haven’t met. Ask guests to write messages of encouragement on diapers so the new parents can get their mind off diaper changes.

Go traditional with a classic baby shower game. Place string in a small plastic bag with an insert for guests to guess Mommy’s tummy size.

Another time-honored game is “Don’t Say Baby.” Create a pretty display by printing out a graphic with the description of the game. Place it in a frame, glue ribbon to the edge, and pin mini clothespins along the ribbon.
