  • I am not aware of this tradition of the pregnant woman ASKING someone to throw her a shower. Seems very odd to me. I thought it was supposed to be offered by someone as a kind gesture.

  • I love throwing showers and parties. Usually I try to base the theme on the following
    1. gender of the baby
    2. theme of the nursery
    3. favorites of the parents
    If you can try to tie two of these together you have a special shower. There are lots of neat shower games and prizes/favors depend on your theme. Good Luck and Have Fun!

  • Think about your own shower and what you would have liked, then go from there. I think it is always a good idea to have good food and good company that is a start, mix in a few good games. Have fun!
