Throwing a baby shower is an honor and lots of fun, but can also be stressful and expensive.

Your going to have the opinions of so many people on how the baby shower should be thrown.

Historically, the baby shower was thrown by someone outside of the family (friend, co-worker, symbolic Aunt). Today however anyone can do it.

It is most common for the Best Friend, Aunt, or sister to throw the Mommy shower!

It is traditional to have a baby shower one to two months before the baby is born.

Throwing a surprise baby shower can be frowned on. Mommy wants to be sure everyone is invited and everyone is free to come.

Baby showers are held at someone's home or at a restaurant.

Normally women are the only ones that attend a baby shower. Today everyone is invited.

Be sure to give everyone a few weeks to buy a gift so send invites way in advance.

The invite should include:

a) Name of Mommy
b) Location
c) Date
d) Directions
e) Phone number in case questions
g) Where Mommy is Registered
h) Theme of the party (if chosen)

The person throwing the baby shower is the one who would normally pay for everything. Today it is common for multiple people to throw the baby shower together which helps in splitting the cost.

It is customary to provide the Mommy with some type of gift at the baby shower. Gifts can range from all shapes, sizes, and prices.

Items could be: diapers, blanket, pacifiers, formula, You could also ask her husband, sister, or mom what the mommy really wants that is reasonable. A gift card is nice too. Just be sure whatever you do, You stay within your budget. Everyone has a budget and everyone will understand.

Be sure that when the party starts mommy is relaxed and enjoying herself. Just as long as she is not being stressed.

You will need to serve food and drinks and easier is better for all. Bottled Drinks, Juice, Finger Foods. Keep it simple.

I truly hope you have a wonderful shower :)
