Almost everyone has a favorite cartoon from their younger days - you'd wake up early on Saturday morning and plop yourself in front of the television, eager to catch the latest episode. Though the days of barreling down the stairs and eating huge bowls of sugary cereal are behind most of us, the joy and wonderment of these shows doesn't have to disappear.
With a new baby on the way, your favorite mom-to-be has an opportunity to introduce a new generation to those cartoons that were so important during her formative years. A cartoon-themed baby shower may be right up her alley, and putting one together is a breeze.
Turn the living room into a place of childlike magic! Disperse mini jungle animal baby shower candles to set the mood from the moment your guests walk in. Encourage everyone to bring a copy of their favorite cartoon when they were growing up - sit yourselves in front of the television and let the waves of nostalgia wash over the party. Before long, you'll be smiling in remembrance.
It's understandable if mom wants to show her child something a little more contemporary - children's programming has come a long way, and many shows provide valuable learning opportunities. Don't be afraid to pick up coloring books and videos from newer shows as well. You can also get copies of a personalized baby shower trivia game and fill it with questions about your favorite programs from past times.
When everyone leaves, make sure to hand out plenty of great favors. There are tons of things you can give your guests, including cute little baby shower beehive candles. Teddy bear photo stands are also sure to go over well, and when the baby is born you can mail out pictures for them! Everyone will be grinning ear-to-ear after reminiscing in their childhood shows together, so your favors are sure to be the added treat that make the party a memorable occasion. Before long, the baby will have plenty of great cartoons to see him or her through the first few years of life.
