Come Party With Me: Baby Shower - Music

Babies are on my mind this week and while KatieSugar is growing up right before our eyes, Naomi Watts still has a bun in the oven... which means she totally needs a baby shower! All week I've been giving you my best ideas and tips to host a cute, yet sophisticated baby shower by planning a virtual shower for Naomi Watts. I covered every element of the party from the invitations to the luncheon menu to the drinks (non alcoholic and alcoholic) to the decor. Pink and blue have become the underlying theme of this event, so the pastel colors run throughout all aspects of the party. I always end up creating my playlists last because they can be thrown together at the last minute (especially with the help of the iTunes music store). To see my playlist suggestions,

My shower is a girls only event, so smooth female vocals will make up the bulk of my musical selection. BuzzSugar suggested choosing "nice, lite singer songwriters who are also fun and interesting." A few of her picks are Edith Frost, Jenny Toomey, Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins, and Madeleine Peyroux. She also considers the music of CocoRosie similar to that of nursery rhymes, so I'll be sure to download a few of their songs too. Mainstream classics like Norah Jones, Sarah McLachlan (none of the depressing songs), and Michael Buble will also work nicely.

What music do you suggest Naomi play at her baby shower? Share your songs with us below!

chancleta, great choice! i have that cd and it's a good one, that song makes me all teary eyed though, one bc iz passed away and two bc of that one scene in that show ER where they play it in the background bc one of their main doctors were dying from a brain tumor? but anyways, yeah this song is wonderful

Call me crazy but I think you should add Israel Kamakawiwo'ole song: "Over the rainbow" to your play list. http://www.amazon.com/Alone-IZ-World-Israel-Kamakawiwoole/dp/B00005O4UG/ref=m_art_li_1/102-6297616-0664123 It's so beautiful, gentle, and reminds of the beautiful things that come with children and childhood.

Jim Brickman would be another great choice. Perhaps even some classical music or something from an old standard like Van Cliburn (piano music) or Glenn Miller.

Quelqu'un M'a Dit by Carla Bruni my boyfriend got her itunes and gave them to me. i love the songs eventhough i have no clue what most of the things she's saying bc my french is horrible but it's a very light and lovely and i just feel like it'll be perfect for an elegant happy baby shower. http://www.amazon.com/Quelquun-Ma-Dit-Carla-Bruni/dp/B0007KTAU4/ref=sr_1_9/002-5864630-0963232?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1176471335&sr=1-9
