A Surprise Baby Shower Can Be the Perfect Way to Celebrate
Throwing a surprise baby shower doesn't have to be difficult. In fact, it can be fun for all involved. All it takes is a little patience, a few basic steps, and the cooperation of friends and family.
A surprise shower does involve some secrets, so remember to be stealthy. But you will want to make sure that the mom-to-be will be up for a surprise. Early on in her pregnancy, try to ascertain if she is up for a surprise baby shower or if she would rather know in advance. This could eliminate surprising mom-to-be when she is not feeling up to it. (If mom-to-be knows she has a surprise baby shower coming up, she will be more likely to be dressed appropriately when the time comes.)
Once you have determined whether the baby shower will be a surprise or not, make sure that mom-to-be has registered for baby gifts. Even if you are having a non-surprise baby shower, it is never appropriate to ask the mom-to-be what she wants for the baby. Let the registry do the talking so baby shower guests can feel free to choose gifts within their own individual budgets.
You will need to enlist the help of those closest to mom-to-be, particularly the dad-to-be. He will be able to help determine a date and time for the surprise baby shower. As well as help to get her there with the least amount of suspicion. He can also make sure she doesn't head out in a baseball cap and no makeup.
Perhaps thinking she is just coming over for coffee! Close family will need to help with the preparation of a baby shower guest list. Since you won't be able to ask mom-to-be directly. You will have to rely on her mother or mother-in-law and maybe a sister to get this information. Be careful when sending the surprise baby shower invitations. You will need to mention that this is a surprise baby shower! You don't want anyone accidentally spilling the beans!
You can keep in the theme of surprising mom-to-be by going the extra mile. By ensuring that an unexpected baby shower guest is able to make it. Ask close friends of this baby shower guest to help with the cost of travel. If this is necessary as part of mom-to-be's gift. She will probably love that more than a baby shower gift!
You can also play baby shower games with surprise themes. Try playing the "diaper surprise" game by passing out diapers to all of the guests. With one of them having a "mess" inside (you can use chocolate or bean dip, or use your imagination). The one who gets the messy diaper wins a prize.
Or if mom-to-be is expecting a boy, you can play "pin the diaper on baby". Just before your blind-folded guest of honor goes to place the diaper on the baby. Squirt her with a water pistol to simulate the "surprise" often associated with changing a baby boy's diaper!
Sometimes, no matter how hard you work to keep the baby shower a surprise. Your mom-to-be may find out about it. Don't let this get you down, though. There will be some elements of surprise for her. Whether she is expecting the baby shower or not.
It might be unexpected guests, party favors, or an exotic cake. There will be plenty there that she didn't count on!
