I have a lot of friends having babies at the moment so it was time for another baby shower! This was a joint shower for three mums and I decided to go with the theme of ‘Mothers-to-bee’ as it was the first child for all of them. Plus I liked the look of a yellow and black colour theme.
The room was divided with three tables for three teams, each mother-to-be as the captain of each. Advice cards and baby bingo sheets were already on the tables to be filled in as people arrived.
Then the games we played were a ‘Price is Right’ style for the new mums to guess the prices of some baby items such as rusks, nappies, sudocrem etc. I then made a huge Nursery Rhyme Jeopardy that was stuck on the wall. Taking it in turns each team would pick a category and see if they knew the answer. It was pretty funny to play. It’s surprising how hard a normally simple question can be when it’s worded strangely. We then did classic Pictionary which is always a laugh. Love having everyone struggle to draw ‘epidural’ or stretchmarks!
We then read out the advice for the mothers that everyone had written and opened pressies, marking off the bingo cards.
There were of course lots of yummy refreshments but luckily for me, someone else took charge of the catering this time, so I could focus on games and décor. I definitely think I’ve missed a calling in life – I love planning a good party!

Love the theme, very different from the standard babies everywhere theme lol. Looks like it was lots of fun, How did you not get broody with 3 mums to be? I would have been terrible lol
Luckily I’ve got my own two month old so not broody in the slightest haha 😉 x
Your bee theme was very good, a lovely change from the norm. Looks like lots of fun #blogsrus
Thank you, I enjoyed planning it x
I have never been to a baby shower but they look so much fun! I love your ‘bee’ theme.
thanks – it was great fun x
That’s such a lovely idea. We had baby showers for each of my NCT group when they had their second children, as no one had had one with first. I loved coming up with games to play, great fun #WHWH
it was hard to think of some different games – I’ve been to so many baby showers!
I never had a baby shower but would have liked one – looks like you would have all had loads of fun
it was a really nice evening, thank you x
