The College Fund Baby Shower

You don't often hear the terms "baby shower" and "college fund" used together, but you probably should. Even today, it costs about $10,000 a year just to attend an in-state public college or university. Who knows how much it'll cost 18 years from now, much less whether or not financial aid will be available?

A Children's Baby Shower

To most shower planners, the concept of a children's baby shower is... well, a bit weird. After all, the basic idea of a baby shower is to shower the mother with gifts, to make caring for her new baby easier -- and, naturally, to take advantage of the excuse to have a party.

Two Beautiful Baby Shower Themes

Choosing baby shower themes is rarely easy. Certain things are expected, but then again, we've all been to the same-old, same-old way too many times -- so it's always nice to add a few unique touches to the mix.

A Baby Nursery Renovation: The Ultimate Baby Shower Gift

One way or another, most of the gifts standard to a baby shower will end up in the baby nursery: diapers and wipes, burping cloths, crib, mobiles, blankies and other such et cetera. So... why not take that concept just a little bit farther, and redo the whole thing, ceiling to floor?

Fun and Practical Baby Shower Gifts

When it comes to baby shower gifts, most of us know what to expect: diapers, onesies, bibs, pacifiers, and the occasional blankie with ducks or bunnies. You know: the usual. Every baby needs 'em, and the mom always appreciates them.

Baby Showers for Men: Why Not?

The concept of baby showers for men is one that, traditionally, hasn't flown well. But in this age of equality, why not? Why do we dump all the responsibility for preparing for Baby on the gals?

And make no mistake -- beyond the party atmosphere, that's why such showers exist: to shower the mom-to-be with needed goodies and advice. Admittedly, men tend to be only vaguely aware of why not make it more obvious, and throw a men's baby shower?

A Unique Baby Shower Theme: The Remembrance Shower

These days, finding a truly unique baby shower theme is pretty much like finding a flesh-and-blood unicorn: it ain't gonna happen. But that doesn't mean you can't make your buddy's baby shower a distinctive and memorable event, even without adding male strippers to the mix.

Your Guide to Baby Shower Organization

Baby shower organization is the key to a successful shower. If possible, you should give yourself about two months to plan. Two months lets you take your time, enjoy the process, and not feel too rushed over the whole thing. If you have less time, it's still very possible: you'll just have to condense some of your planning and -- if you're really rushed -- skip a few steps altogether.

Generally, though, it's more fun to take your time and do your baby shower planning properly. So if you have your eight weeks -- or even if you don't -- here's a timeline to help you figure out how to organize a baby shower.

Picture Perfect Baby Shower Centerpieces

Many people don't think about baby shower centerpieces. After all, the centerpiece isn't what it once was -- essential to any dinner or party. You can have perfectly beautiful baby showers and never think about a centerpiece -- I guarantee no one will comment on the difference.

So why bother with a centerpiece at all? There are a couple of reasons. First of all, a really good centerpiece attracts a lot of attention, which means you can keep the rest of your baby shower decorations very simple. Second, the centerpiece often doubles as a gift for the mom-to-be, which is a nice touch for any shower. And third, because it's not as common anymore, it sets your shower apart from the crowd.

Convinced? If so, here are some baby shower centerpieces to start with!

Baby Shower Gifts On Theme

When you shop for baby shower gifts, you don't often consider what others will purchase. If you throw a wedding shower, it's quite common to suggest themed gifts. For example, some people throw kitchen themed wedding showers and ask all guests to bring gifts for the bride-to-be's kitchen along with recipes they've used and loved.

This is less common with baby shower themes, probably because people tend to have a stock of traditional baby shower gift ideas they know the expectant mother will want and need. Still, it can be fun to coordinate gifts around a theme, so if you want to give it a try, here are some great themes and gifts that go with them.

Unique and Interesting Baby Shower Themes

In my opinion, great baby shower themes have to fulfill two conditions. They have to be unique and fun, and they have to be easy. It's no use to me if I have to spend weeks special ordering stuff off the Internet to make my baby shower ideas come together.

Although I'm as big a fan of unique baby shower themes as anyone, there's such a thing as going too far. Here's a good general question: Can I get most of the stuff I need without leaving my neighborhood/town/city? If the answer is yes, you're in good shape.

These unique baby shower themes are creative and original, but you won't go crazy looking for decorations, favors, and invites.
