Restaurant baby shower

You're not a lazy hostess- just a clever one!

Restaurant baby shower

Forego a traditional baby shower locale and invite guests to celebrate in a favorite restaurant.

Baby shower themes:
Since a hostess won't have free range to decorate a restaurant, having a baby shower theme is a bit impractical.

Baby shower invitations:
Keep it informal and call or email guests with the restaurant information. Don't forget to make reservations!

Decorations:
No decorating is required for this shower, except if you want to bring a table centerpiece or balloon bouquet.

Games and prizes:
If the mother-to-be opens her gifts during this baby shower, play the baby shower gift game. The candy bar game is also a good low-key option. But for most restaurant baby showers, great conversation is the activity-du-jour.

The menu:
Check ahead with the restaurant for menu ideas. They might be able to specially-plan a menu for your party. It's not necessary for the hostess to pay for each guest in attendance, but very necessary to pay for the mother-to-be.

Party favors:
Rather than party favors, treat each guest to dessert. It's proper etiquette to mention the dessert is the party favor.

YeahBaby.com thoughts:
Similar to a girlfriend's lunch, this is a great option for close friends.
