Guide to Throwing a Modern Baby Shower


Traditions are evolving and modern ways of celebrating new births are emerging. In the words of Bob Dylan, times, they are a-changin’. This guide is a collection of the latest, freshest ideas for throwing a modern-day baby shower. Each section begins with a description of the traditional take on an element – invitations, themes, games, food, gift ideas, favors—and then ends with the latest and greatest spin.

The table below offers a quick look at what’s inside:

Baby Shower Element
21st Century
Who's Invited Women only Kid-friendly and co-ed
Location Host's home or restaurant On the web
Themes Blue for boys and pink for girls Green for eco-friendly
Invitations Printed on baby-themed stationary Invite on a customized cholocate bar
Games Baby bingo Candle lighting ceremony
Food Cake in shape of diaper Gourmet cupcakes
Gifts Baby clothes The Baby Bunch, of course!
Favors Candle, soap Donation to children-centered charity


With talk of global warming, our society is becoming increasingly earth-conscious. Consequently, many of the modern baby shower trends have an eco-friendly bent. Time will only tell how much this trend continues to play out.

The spirit of the guide is not to applaud the new and poopoo the old. In fact, just because we are writing about a new practice doesn’t mean we prefer it! The most important thing about throwing a baby shower—whether in the 21st century or the 210th—is that it is revolves around the likes and dislikes of the expecting mother. This is a time to celebrate, honor and indulge the new mom and the new life to come.

Have fun! And be sure to join The Baby Bunch online community for a continued discussion of all things baby!
