Heirloom Baby Shower: Games and Activities

Apr 16 2009 - 5:00am
Lilsugar is celebrating mamas-to-be all month with extensive baby shower coverage [1] that will help you put on awww-inducing, unique, socially relevant, and hip fetes. This week, we are planning an heirloom-themed party [2] that asks guests to pass on stories, advice and heirloom goods instead of filling a nursery with new goodies.

When we planned the party's decor, I suggested you ask guests to bring photos of their loved ones and children [3] to hang on a clothespin banner at the party. If they do, one of the day's activities should be a half hour dedicated to story telling and sharing advice for the new mommy. Once that is over, have each guest fill out our fill-in-the-blank Wishes for Baby card (you can download it in blue and pink [4] or brown and orange [5] for free), collect the cards, and have the mother-to-be or grandmother-to-be read the wishes out loud to the whole group. There won't be a dry eye in the house.

Don't forget to enter our fabulous April Showers Giveaway [6] for a chance to win a $2,500 gift card to put toward your babe's nursery and/or necessities for your child at Pottery Barn Kids [7]! And, check out the baby shower invitations we've created exclusively for pingg [8]! Pingg allows you to email invites to a guest list or print and mail, and send reminders via SMS, online, Facebook, Twitter, and more!
