How To Plan A Baby Shower


It was in the 80's when I attended my first baby shower. I was working at an elementary school. My wife was pregnant with our first soon-to-be-born bouncing baby boy. The teachers at the school called me into the room asking and then, Surprise! I was stunned, overwhelmed, and greatly appreciative of this unexpected and touching expression of love.

Brenda and I have attended scores of baby showers and she has planned many of them. So I asked her what planning elements go into a successful and memorable event. Here are a few do's and don'ts:

BABY SHOWER PLANNING DO'S AND DON'TS

Do's

Determine the gender of the baby if the parents know.
