An Unforgettable Baby Shower!

Need some trendy baby shower ideas for an upcoming special event? Here’s one that will bring out the real party animals in your guests!

Everybody loves Snoopy, right? That is an incontrovertible fact. After all these decades, Snoopy, Charles Shultz’s famous beagle-on-the-roof, is still everyone’s favorite philosopher, and one of the most beloved characters in the history of comics.

You cannot go wrong with a Snoopy theme for your baby shower! It makes no difference what age or gender your guests are, the mere fact that they are surrounded with the Snoopy theme will put them at ease and in the mood to giggle, carry on and generally just have fun.

Trendy baby shower ideas with a Snoopy theme:

-Your invitations should contain a Snoopy cartoon picture, if not a real cartoon, complete with a balloon and funny saying. You can find them all over the Internet, and you will have a great time in the process!

-And speaking of balloons, why not decorate with them? You can even get balloons with the “Peanuts” characters to dress up special areas or to use as a centerpiece. Write something funny on them! (How about “Bark if you’re pregnant,” or a simple “WOOF!”)

-Get creative with your decorations. Cut out paw prints and put them on the walk. Serve appetizers in dog bowls. Why not decorate yourself and your friends while you’re at it? Ask them to wear pigtails that look like dog’s ears! Give them each a glittery choker for a party favor… at the beginning of the party, so they can wear it! Put some big black spots on a white turtleneck by pinning on round pieces of fabric or oven paper, and wear black ski pants and bunny slippers.

-Have a ball allowing the little kid in you to come out and greet the little kids in your friends. You might like putting up a big banner, made out of butcher paper and poster paint, that says:

“OUR INNER KIDS WELCOME YOURS!”

-What’s a party without music, right? Do you have kids? Don’t they have kid music? Do your friends’ kids play kid music? Gather it up and play it during the party! (If you can, put it on a single Mpeg CD so you won’t have to fiddle with it during the festivities.)

-Ahem. What about the refreshments? We suggest you make life simple for yourself. You don’t want to be running around while you’re trying to enjoy your own party, do you? How about two big punch bowls containing Shirley Temples, one spiked with white wine, and one a virgin Shirley Temple? Label them and that will be good for some laughs, while getting you off the serving treadmill. Food? How about some cupcakes in the shape of dog bones? Or simply regular cupcakes with white icing and put on a bunch of dark chocolate chips.

-You can find party games online that are tried and true, but here’s one specific to your Snoopy-themed “trendy” baby shower: Get yourself a big Snoopy poster and attach a black bottle cap or similar object to a push-pin. Then watch everybody line up for a great game of “Pin the Nose on Snoopy.” (Don’t forget the blindfold!)

Baby showers sometimes get a bit stuffy. Usually there are quite a few strangers thrust into an unusual situation together, unable to gracefully escape, for several hours, trying hard to look happy. If left to their own devices, they’ll be exhausted, instead of exhilarated, when they get home.

People love to have fun, but group psychology proves they need permission and direction. You don’t need to actually order anyone around, because a theme such as this makes it immediately obvious to everyone what it’s all about. They come to your party wanting just such an atmosphere. Give it to them, and have a spectacular baby shower they’ll all try to copy… and no one will ever forget!
