I just threw my baby shower and I can honestly say I had the best time! I hope you enjoy my baby shower ideas and baby shower tips so you too can have a blast at your baby shower! Whether you are looking for inspiration for a baby shower for a boy or a baby shower for a girl, these baby shower tips can be used for both!
10 Baby Shower Ideas:
1. Name Reveal
Your baby shower is the perfect place to reveal your baby's name!! You can share the love everywhere and put the name of your baby on a special cake, creative cookies, balloons, signs, napkins, wherever you like!!
2. Have fun activities
I opted to have more passive activities so that people could participate when and if they wanted to. No public measuring the belly at my shower! I had a spectacular DIY Flower Crown that was a huge hit, a station where my guests could leave hilarious messages for late night diaper changes and words of parenting advice.

3. Feed Your Guests
My shower took place on a Sunday afternoon, so I didn't provide a proper lunch or dinner. Instead, I had da made to order crepe station, which everyone loved, a Mediterranean salad bar, my favorite pizza delivered and sweets galore!
4. Serve alcohol options
Even though you can't imbibe, you should still provide some alcoholic options for your guests. I went with wine, beer and a specialty tequila cocktail.
5. Serve Non-Alcoholic Options
Also be sure to serve some creative non-alcoholic options as well! I had fresh water with different fruits, sparkling water galore, a fun sparkling juice in a cute champagne bottle and a delicious non-alcoholic spirit called Seedlip.
6. Treat your guests to something you love
I'm a giver, so I gifted my girls some of my favorite skincare products from Pili Beauty!

7. Hire a wonderful photographer
The best way to document the day and your memories at your baby shower is to hire a photographer! You don't need the stress of trying to get pictures yourself or hunting down pictures from your friends after.
I hired the incredible @Ographr and she made my baby shower so special. Hire your own photographer here: www.ographr.com
8. Have a designated area for gifts
I am not the type to open gifts publicly while everyone watches, but I did set up a designated area for guests to leave gifts. Then I had fun over the next week slowly opening them and enjoying them.
9. Get words of wisdom from your friends
My husband and I decided to have a co-ed baby shower and invited couples with little ones. It was so fun to bond with them and get some words of wisdom!
10. Have fun with your decorations
My bestie who also happens to be the most talented Event Planner added special touches throughout my home. She seriously thought of everything and I could not have done this without her!!
