Have some fun with the party and cook pork, chicken, fruits (like pineapple) and vegetables of the season. Play Hawaiian music and have ocean sounds to sooth the mommy to be. There are a lot of creative ideas you can do with this party.

Hot summer fun has now been underway and a great time to host a baby shower. Bring in the summer sizzle with a beach theme party. Get beach balls, beach wall decorations and provide cute baby shower gift packs with sunscreen, pail, shovel, mini sunglasses and bath supplies. These will be used in years to come.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - JUNE 2013
Summer is coming and so is the heat. One of the most cute baby shower gifts you can give is a diaper cake with summer items. This is where diapers are folded in different shapes and create a design with other useful items for summer such as sun screen, shovel and pail, etc. Play baby shower games outside if it is not too hot and make sure to have everyone know the dress code on the baby shower invitation as to not over heat your guests. Happy Summer.

A cute idea is to get a baby shower gift that is functional for the summer months. This can be in the form of a diaper cake which offers diapers and other summer needs like ointments, shampoos, all in the shape of a sea animal or boat. You can find many site that sell these baby shower diaper cake gifts on our top gifts page. Baby shower summers are fun in the sun. Many plan going out and having an indoor and outdoor shower as the weather gets more hot. A great idea is to bring the baby shower games that are easily portable. Our choice is to turn to getting reasonable baby shower App's that are easy to bring with you on your phone or iPad and can be lots of fun to play!

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - MAY 2013
The weather is starting to get warm so make it a fun outdoor party and bring in the spring and summer elements to celebrate the mommy-to-be's entrance into motherhood. A beach theme is always fun which can incorporate towels, sunscreen, sunglasses, pails/shovels and other items that the parents can use with their little one later. Diaper Cakes in the form of summer symbols are a great baby shower gift. May is a great time to host a baby shower. Bring in some May flower power and celebrate Mother's day by honoring all mothers in the room, especially the mommy-to-be. Have an indoor-outdoor venue since the weather is getting more warm. Have everyone go around and discuss how they appreciate their mother to make it personal and special for everyone at the shower. Make sure to take some great photos which you can do by placing disposable cameras on the tables for everyone to participate with!

Celebrate the new mommy-to-be for Mother's Day with a new mommy gift. Decorate in vibrant colors and flowers as it is the Spring season to bring in new life and joy. Create a scrap book of baby shower pictures that you have someone take and have everyone sign with words of advice that can be added to the scrap book after.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - APRIL 2013
A Spring baby shower is always fun with the girls. Bring in spring colors like pastels or vibrant colors like red, purple, lavender and pink. Decorate with lots of flowers as well as the symbol of new life! Play the baby shower game of naming baby animals (i.e., Chicken:Chick - Goat: Kid - Lion: Cub) which is a  lot of fun to see who can get the most. You can find many more games on our games pages. A great idea for the baby shower is to all go see a funny movie and get some laughs. A movie prior to the baby shower or after the baby shower is an excellent and fun way to celebrate the mommy-to-be and get loads of laughter.

April is the symbol of Spring and renewed life. Bring some flower power into the baby shower with some bright colors, sweet smells and excellent Spring salads. Play some fun baby shower games during the party and enjoy this amazing month!

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - MARCH 2013
Happy St. Patty's Day and time to enjoy the Winter to Spring. Bring in some green and symbols of new life by playing the baby animal naming game as well as liven up the room with warm colors. Serve green foods which are high in energy while enjoying the thaw out of our weather. March is always a fun time as Spring is coming and weather is getting much better. A great baby shower gift of the season is getting an iPhone App for baby showers.

It is always fun to get some green going for the baby shower festivities with green m&m's, green drinks, and green decorations!

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - FEBRUARY 2013
A baby shower during Valentine's is a lot of fun! Have all the guests create a giant Valentine's Day card where everyone writes advice and sentiments for the parents to be. During the Valentine's Day month, it is fun to bring a digital camera and take photos of the Mommy to be along with each of her baby shower guests. Have a creative baby shower activity where all baby shower guests create Valentine's Day cards (or just loving cards if after Valentine's Day) for the parents-to-be where you use markers, scissors, and paper to create the card and write an inspirational message or word of advice to the new parents. Have someone print out on a printer each of the photos so you can add them to the cards and have the mommy-to-be keep them for a great memory of her loving friends and family at her baby shower.

For Valentine's Day baby showers, tie in the month of love with hearts, colors of pink, white and red along with angels. Write messages of parent advice or memories of the parents to be on cut out hearts and place them in a scrap book you can give as a baby shower gift.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - JANUARY 2013
Happy New Year! Now is a great time to make your new year resolutions and what a better way to go around and do this at the baby shower for a great baby shower game. Go around and make your resolutions as well as what you hope for the new parents to be (i.e., I hope to exercise more in 2013 and I hope your baby is not colicky). Make it fun and lighthearted. January is always a fun time to have a baby shower since you can tie in New Year's Resolutions by speaking of a new year and new baby. A fun game is to have the mommy and daddy to be write some new year's resolutions that are not related to their gender and have everyone guess which one came up with it. You can also extend this game to others at the party to see if everyone can guess whose resolutions are read to the baby shower guests. See some other great baby shower games to liven up your winter and new year's season shower.

Happy New Years and a great time to throw a baby shower. The idea of the month and year is to make for more efficiency through green measures and through savings. A baby shower game can now be played through bringing an Apple App which you can find here as well as other great apps here. Give gift cards or check out our baby shower gifts page for more great ideas from different companies.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - DECEMBER 2012
It is a great idea to purchase your baby shower gift as soon as possible as the holiday season makes the stores and shipping delayed or out of stock of the items you want. It is also a great time for finding deals on all items so use this to your advantage and start early to shop! Happy Holidays - a great time to have a baby shower. Tie in the festive atmosphere by bringing in a little holiday spirit by using symbolic holiday foods, lights and symbols for a parent baby relationship. For Christmas you can bring in the festivity scene, big and small Christmas tree. For Hanukah and Kwanza you can bring in a big and small menorah, big and small dreidel, etc. Have some fun with it.

It's time to Fall back and get ready for the turkey. Use this season of thanks to appreciate and go around the room for what you are thankful for. It is always nice at a baby shower to take some time to reflect as well as give to those in need. Have a food drive as part of the baby shower which makes even more good from a great and memorable event! This is one of our favorite seasons as there is so much to tie in with the baby shower. With everyone trying to save money, a great idea is to look at bringing baby shower App's since they are low priced and fun to play. Check out the newest app for a baby shower game here as well as our other baby shower games to play in making any shower a success. A simple one is to pass a baby pumpkin like hot potato and who wins a baby shower gift.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - OCTOBER 2012
It's time to celebrate one of our favorite holidays which is fun to tie into the baby shower theme. A fun baby shower game is to wrap the mommy-to-be like a mummy or play in teams to have one of each team member wrapped up. Decorate with the bride of Frankenstein pregnant, have a costume party, make a witches punch, and have fun with the holiday season! Go with the non-traditional and have a home party while decorating the house for a friendly haunted house Halloween shower. Use cute centerpieces like baby and mama ghosts, bride of Frankenstein along with a baby Frankie. Make a mummy and daddy mummy along with a baby. Play the wrap the mommy in toilet paper mummy baby shower game and see which out of two teams are more fast. Have everyone wear costumes and serve yummy Halloween candy. Give out cute baby shower favors themed around Halloween. There is a lot to do during the fall season so enjoy and be creative.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - SEPTEMBER 2012
As fall sets in, a great baby shower idea is to bring in some leafs, paper and crayons and make some really cute baby shower decorations with each of them having a word of advice for the parent's to be. Sign your name and date. After the baby shower, a book can be made from all of these great fall leaves with advice which will be cherished by the parents and a great personalized baby shower gift. Add a photo of each baby shower participant which can then be shown to the little one as they grow of who was at their baby shower! As the last month of summer comes to a close, there are many fun ideas you can do at your baby shower. One of our favorites is to get a plastic table cloth and some pens and write cute sayings, advice, and pictures all over the table, cutting out the cutest ones to make into a scrap book along with baby shower pictures. It is a creative and fun way to have a baby shower meal and keep active during the shower.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - AUGUST 2012
A summer theme is always fun with the elements of sun, sand and tropical. Bring in some cute faux palm trees, beach balls, sand shovels and pails so the parent's to be can use these items with their new addition! A really cute baby shower idea is to fill in martini glasses with fruit salad, nuts or other yummy foods to make for a great party! With things heating up with both the weather and the economy, save some money by planning the baby shower early and using your buyer's market strategy. Check out our baby shower gifts section as well as our baby shower invitations section since there are so many companies to choose from.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - JULY 2012
Summer is here and a great time to have an outdoor baby shower! Bring in the flowers, sun dresses and cute little hats as was traditional of old day baby shower festivities. Play some outdoor baby shower games to enjoy the new season and make sure to have your attendees dress accordingly which should be reminded on the baby shower invitation. July is an excellent time to spend some time outside along with lots of sunscreen and ice water and summer fruits and vegetables. A great baby shower gift can be gift cards from the parents-to-be's favorite stores so they can get what they want (especially if the baby shower is for their second or third child). A great way around the gifts is to let everyone know to bring a gift card for the parents-to-be along with writing a word of wisdom or advice in the baby shower invitation which will be read out loud during the traditional opening of gifts.
