Cool Mom Picks: Have the Ultimate Baby Shower!

It’s your last hurrah before your life changes forever, so this party better be good! We asked the moms behind CoolMomPicks.com (Kristen Chase and Liz Gumbinner) to share their tips on throwing the best baby bash — here’s how to plan a sweet soiree in honor of a sleek mom-to-be.

Make it memorable: We think throwing a memorable baby shower is like throwing any other fabulous party: Amazng food, delicious drinks (awesome mocktails perhaps?), and your family and friends celebrating with you. While a lot of people stress about baby shower “themes,” a theme really isn’t necessary unless you find a concept that reflects you; anyone can do a party around a child’s cartoon character, right? But if mermaids or Paris or even vintage cameras have a special connection to the mama-to-be, then it will have more meaning for both her and the guests.
