Memories Baby Shower
Description: The focus of the shower is the month and/or year that the baby is born in. Guests can bring a scrapbook page or tiny booklet for the baby, or photos, newspaper clippings, popular music, almost anything to put into a time capsule. These memories will definitely be treasured!
Decorations: Hang movie, music, and other posters that commemorate a specific year, it can be the year the baby is born, but it's more fun if it's the year the mom was born, or some other meaningful era, and play music from that time.
Guest's Attire: Have your guests come dressed in that theme if it commemorates a past year. (e.g. Poodle skirts, and leather jackets for a 50s theme)
Refreshments: Serve foods that commemorate the year or decade. For example, if your theme is 50s, serve hamburgers, fries, and milkshakes.
Games: Create a questionnaire to ask the mommy-to-be about her likes and dislikes at different ages. Have your guests guess the answers. Another fun game would be to have your guests recount their earliest memories of the new mom and read each memory aloud. Have everyone guess who the memory belongs to and have fun taking a stroll through memory lane.
Favors: For the baby shower favors, give your guests a CD of music from the era in a personalized CD cover.
