Overview

In the last 10 years, baby showers as specially planned events have grown in popularity as more and more people have found a reason to celebrate in the coming of a new baby in a friend's circle or in the family with gifts and games forming an essential part of planning such a celebration. These presents can be bought for use by the baby or the parents-to-be and at times, even baby shower registries are a common practice wherein guests may view and buy items mentioned on the list, usually outlined by the expectant parents as being useful for the coming arrival.
While tradition deemed only the first baby would be the recipient of a baby shower party, nowadays every baby may well have such an event dedicated to them by doting family members or even colleagues from work. Typically held during the last months of a pregnancy, a baby shower is an occasion to for co-workers, friends and relatives of an expectant couple to get together in a celebratory mood and enjoy the good wishes for a coming new baby; they can be large or intimate gatherings so the party list is a personal preference, actually.

During baby showers organized by a couple, both men and women can be invited, especially during these modern times when even the men-folk seem to enjoy such occasions. Of course, it is considered a tad tasteless to include couples who have recently experienced a loss of a child or those with fertility issues since it can be an emotionally trying time for them, though you could always gently query them if they'd like to attend in view of their situation to avoid any bad breath between you all later.
Common themes revolving around baby showers include Mother, Father with exclusive gift ideas suiting either parent (toiletries for mum and coffee set for dad etc); safety for the babe party wherein all gifts need to adhere to safety standards or even kiddy or nursery themes such as poems, rhymes or cartoon characters. The host and hostess of the baby showers can match food items to go with the décor and general mood of the party idea but they do need to decide before-hand the guest-list, timing and venue for the party.
Important elements such as these three help to determine the kind of gathering the baby shower will cater to, from serving a full sit down meal (dinner) or simply light snacks and dessert (lunch or high tea) to games that can liven up the occasion. Go easy on the alcohol content in the food and drinks though for the expectant mother to enjoy herself fully and avoid those that may trigger off allergies.
Timely planning and preparation are the key factors in organizing and enjoying the best baby showers ever!
