While the baby may not exactly be around yet to remember, you can still throw an unforgettable shower to celebrate the little one's imminent arrival.
Why stop at blue versus pink? The color dichotomy has been a classic go-to for baby showers through the ages, but that doesn't mean you can't get creative if your higher muses are calling you. Seasons or holidays that fall close to your shower date are a good place to start, but you can go the route of some more collegiate themes and have a luau or a toga party.
Adding a little humor never hurts, either. WhizNews.com suggests alluding to water breakage by putting tiny plastic babies in ice cubes. Pass out the frozen items to friends and encourage them to melt the cube and exclaim, "My water broke!"
There are numerous other ways to entertain your guests such as trivia and bingo games. If your friends are of the mystical variety, you can customize Chinese fortune shakers with a few carefully-placed puns or outrageous predictions - doubly fun if you imagine future occasions with baby.
