BABY SHOWER INFORMATION

The baby shower has been stated by many sources to be originated in the late eighteen hundreds and received its name from the "showering" of love and gifts for the mommy-to-be. The baby shower started as a tea party for only women who would share the day with the mommy-to-be and her female family members. The gifts given to the new mom were very practical in nature as well as handmade.
A baby shower was originally offered for the first baby of the mommy-to-be but that tradition has changed to being for all "new additions" to a family since they are all miracles and deserve to be showered with love and gifts. Typically, the baby shower is thrown in an afternoon time on a weekend when everyone can attend.
The person throwing the baby shower is usually a family member (cousin, aunt, etc.) or close family friend. Originally, one baby shower would be thrown for a mommy-to-be, but today many women have more than one party because they have different groups of friends, co-workers and family members.
A baby shower can range from very elegant to very causal, depending on the mood you would like to set! They can take place at a restaurant, bar, country club or someone's home and usually don't take place for more than a few hours. It is customary for the mommy-to-be to receive baby shower gifts from her guests as well as give gifts out to the women who plan the baby shower.
The baby shower is known for usually serving some type of food, whether a meal or snacks and can range from being a very inexpensive party to one that is expensive. It is important to remember that the baby shower party is not about who can spend the most or impress their baby shower guests, but who can create a memorable time with great friends and have lots of laughs.
