Bringing The Baby Shower Outside For Family Fun

Mar 2, 2008
For many years baby showers have been a way for expectant mothers to get together with their family and friends, have some much needed fun, and to welcome new life. While it may be a great reason for the mom-to-be and her female friends to celebrate, there are other important people who may also want to join in on the fun. Instead of having a traditional, indoor get together with all of the usual festivities, why not move the party outdoors and include dads and all of the little ones for a whole family affair?

When throwing a baby shower, why not include the entire family and make it a fun family affair? Instead of having a traditional baby shower with all of the traditional little tea party like festivities, move the fun outside and invite the dads and the little ones of others. After all, this is a celebration of a new life!

When sending out the baby shower invitations clearly mark the details. Invite dad and the little ones of each household and let everyone know the party will be moving outside so not to worry about any child who is out of control! Then, put your heads together with your spouse and start planning for an entertaining and different baby shower.

A baby shower is supposed to be simple and fun but loaded with games and gifts for the new mom. This shouldn't change just because the guest list is changing. In fact, just so everything is equally fun for the father-to-be, on the invitation clearly mark, "dad gifts are encouraged and gag gifts for dads are welcome!" This will help loosen the fellows up for a fun-filled day!

The outdoors is the perfect place to have a baby shower and a cook-out is a unique way for everyone to participate in this great occasion. A cook-out theme is also a simple and inexpensive way to have a great afternoon of fun. Encourage people to bring a staple such as chips and pretzels, napkins, condiments or any small item that doesn't require much planning. While the parents-to-be at this different type of shower are the guests of honor, everyone else who attends is also a guest and shouldn't feel that they have to prepare or cook foods in order to attend the party.

This type of outdoor baby shower is excellent for getting reacquainted with old friends, and maybe even making some new ones. This is also a good time for the men to get to know one another and perhaps even show the new dad what great fun families and children can be!
