Baby Shower Locations
The home of the host or a close friend or family member is a typical place to
have a baby shower. This venue easily sets the stage for the games, gift opening
and other festivities. Restaurants, church nurseries or public parks are other
It’s not uncommon today for expecting mothers to be living far away from
family and close friends. One option, of course, when planning the shower is to
fly the mom-to-be to the party location. But when that’s not doable, throwing a
baby shower online is now a possibility. There is a company that offers web baby showers
where friends and family can have a "live chat," post videos, photos even play
baby shower games. A customized website is created for each shower and can be
printed once the baby is born as a keepsake.
Another version of the long distance shower is when friends and family gather
together for a typical shower –play the games, share a meal – only the mom-to-be
is not in attendance! You can then video tape special messages for the expecting
couple and send it along with the presents.
Spas are an increasingly popular location for a modern baby shower,
especially in the last few months of an expecting mother’s pregnancy. Most spas
offer prenatal massages; other options for the mom-to-be are facials, body
treatments or manicure and pedicure. Many spas also give discounts for groups.
We threw a baby shower at a local spa last year for a friend where we all
got pedicures in one room while we had a somewhat traditional style "tea party"
with delicious teas, scones with Devonshire cream and lemon curd, tea sandwiches
and flourless chocolate decadence.
