Baby Showers!!

How on earth do you set up a baby shower? I've never done one considering this is my first baby. Im not getting too big and every babyshower I've ever been to the pregnant woman was really big (belly). Ugh, I just don't even know where to begin!!

  • Here's what I would do:

    1) Write down all the people you want to invite
    2) Figure out where you want to have it, time and date
    3) Will it be catered? Who will cook? You could have it at a resturant too, in a back room that can be closed off.
    4) Invitations are easy. You can actually send them out via email @
    5) Register!

  • I think a baby shower is given FOR you and not BY you. You are suppose to be the honored guest and not the hostess.
