It doesn’t matter if you aren’t a pro in cooking, we are going to help you deliver the best baby shower cakes 2014 in easy and simple steps. Ready? Let’s go!

First of all, you will have to take the mother to be with you and go out for shopping. Pick her mind to see what she wants before making the first visit. Preparation is everything when organising a baby shower, so it’s important you get from the future parents as much information as possible. Baby shower cakes 2014 are suitable for modern parents who are ready to embrace contemporary living and combine it with stylish deserts and sweets. Fondant iced cakes are really trendy as well as buttercream cakes. Some parents prefer sheet cake while others prefer a more complex choice in the form of a tiered cake.

Baby Shower Cakes 2014

Flavour is the most critical part of baby shower cakes 2014. One of the best tips we have for you is to go with the typical setting of cake: a sponge with cream on top. This classic receipe is a guaranteed success as it has been tried for years and nobody left unhappy! Baby shower cakes 2014 must be rich and prepared with marzipan. This is a safe choice that appeal’s to almost everyone. Surrounding baby shower cakes 2014 with other dainties will give your desert the most delicious taste that will make your guests want another piece (or even a third one)! Popular toppers to baby shower cakes 2014 include baby booties and teddy bears. We’ve also noticed a new trend with baby blankets and rattles that can be easily added to most types of cakes. Last but not least, we have pins and blocks that can be used as fun toppers to complete the look and feel of the cake.

Baby Shower Cakes 2014

You can also mix different flavours in order to find what’s best for you. However, you shouldn’t mix too many different flavours because you will create a monster that nobody will like. 2-3 different flavours should be enough for your baby shower cakes 2014. Guests will need to have a clear idea what they are eating and should be able to distinguish the flavours. Make sure you don’t use any strange ingredients that are not very well known, otherwise you risk having a rare combination that could prove tricky. Also make sure you ask your guests if they have any particular alergy that could create a big mess. For example, a lot of people have nuts allergy, so it’s really important to check with them in order to avoid nasty surprises.

Baby Shower Cakes 2014: Diaper Cakes

Baby Shower Cakes 2014: Choosing the right Bakery

Experienced bakers who are considered experts in designing baby shower cakes 2014 are now in full demand. They can
guarantee of a well made cake which has a professional look and tastes like heaven. When you go around shopping, make sure you get different quotes from each baker you visit and then compare. Don’t settle for the first one, because a better bargain might be waiting for you down the corner. Also, make sure you discuss your baby shower theme right up front. It’s important to have baby shower cakes 2014 that blend with the overall theme of the baby shower.

Baby Shower Cakes 2014

A final thing to note regarding bakeries, is that you need to allow enough time for them to get it ready. Don’t show up a couple of days before the event and tell them what you want.

The first thing you have to remember is that all baby shower gifts are meant to help future parents raise the new baby.

The possibilities for baby shower gifts for mom and dad are endless. Some of the most popular gifts are the ones that are practical and focus on essential supplies that they will need in the first weeks of the baby’s life. Baby shower gifts are different from any other presents because they don’t focus on making mom look prettier or dad look more handsome.

That said, future parents will deeply appreciate these gifts, especially if it saves them some money from the necessary supplies that they will have to buy for the baby anyway.

We’ll show you the coolest baby shower gifts for mom and dad so that you can surprise your friends with awesome presents. Bring these gifts to any baby shower and you will be remembered as the kind of person who did their homework and hit the jack pot!

Baby Shower Gifts for Mom and Dad

Baby Shower Gifts for Mom and Dad: Diaper Dude

Let’s start with an unusual gift for cool dads. Men often complain that they don’t like to carry flowery diaper bags. They want something less girly so that they don’t look like a fool. The Diaper Dude is the answer to dads problems! We are not talking about the usual diaper bag, this is built with men in mind. It’s a funky diaper bag that comes with a complete changing pad system for active dads who take their baby with them in their outdoors social interactions. Got an invite from a friend to have a coffee but you are baby sitting? No need to stay at home, take your hip diaper bag and go meet your friends. You won’t find a better baby shower gift for dad! Diaper dude comes with 3 zip-closed pockets that can hold food, bibs, wipes and utensils. It also has a fancy bottle pocket on the side and it’s large enough to carry toys and extra clothes. A dream come true for all dads!

Baby Shower Gifts for Mom and Dad: Clothes

If you are fashion conscious or the mother-to-be is a very stylish friend of yours, clothes might be the perfect baby shower gift for her. Baby clothes are super cute because they are mini versions of adult clothes. Moms and dads will love them because it will not only look amazing on the baby, but because they need many pairs of clothes in case there is an “emergency” and they have to change the baby. It’s always a good idea to buy clothes a bit larger because babies grow up at an insane pace. You don’t want your present to be out-of-date in weeks, it would be a shame and a waste of money. Another thing you need to consider is when the baby is due. According to the month that mom is expected to give birth, you should plan the baby clothes accordingly. T-shirts and light clothes for babies that will be born during summer and jackets if they will be delivered in winter. Mamas and papas have the best value for money baby shower gifts for mom and dad when it comes to clothes. We highly recommend you give it a try and you won’t regret it!

Baby Shower Gifts for Mom and Dad: Bottles and Pacifiers

This is the single most important thing to remember because it ties all the decorations together, creating a unified experience for your guests. It will also make your life easier because the baby shower theme will guide you in every single choice you make. It can also help you save money as you will avoid unnecessary spending in items that might look cute on the counter but don’t actually fit in with the rest of the theme.

This particular theme allows you to include the gifts for the mom to be into the rest of the decor.

How to decorate for a baby shower star theme

If nature is not really your thing and you prefer an out-of-this-world experience (especially if you are a die hard fan of Star Trek or Star Wars), you can have a little fun with DIY decorations. All you need to do is cut out stars, some of them big and some of them small to fill the empty space. Next step would be to get a gold or silver spray and paint them like a graffiti. Make sure you don’t mess up your carpet or floor, it’s a good idea to do this somewhere safe, perhaps at your back yard. Then you let them dry for about half an hour and they are ready to hang on the ceiling. For a perfect finish, buy some star confetti and spread it evenly on the tables to create a sense of magic area. Wire garland could also fit in this baby shower decoration as it’s a magnificent way to compliment your theme. You can also have napkins with stars, candles with stars or even tablecloths. The perfect gift for this occasion would be this amazing Star Wars Yoda Jedi in Training infant bodysuit.

How to decorate for a baby shower: Menu

How to decorate for a baby shower: Flowers

Women love flowers, and let’s face it. Most of your guests will be women, so it’s no secret that flowers can act as amazing baby shower decorations, regardless of the theme you pick. Go visit your local florists and get a few quotes. Compare prices so that you make sure you get the best deal for the budget you have. I would not recommend looking for flowers in floral departments in supermarkets as they never match the quality of independent and specialized florists. They can be cheaper, but the overall result is in most cases disappointing. Most shops are so unique that they treat flower arrangements as art, you will be surprised by the final result that can be achieved for a small price. Give it a try and impress your guests! If you want to know how to decorate for a baby shower that will really make a difference, you can get these lovely pink Pom Poms from Martha Stewart Crafts that can compliment your flower arrangements like heaven.

Bingo Baby Shower Games

Bingo baby shower is an amazing theme for those who are big fans of the popular board game. It will give you endless fun and nice memories of an extremely successful baby shower. It is a classic baby shower theme and considered one of the safest bets you can have. Everyone loves bingo, it’s exciting and you never get bored of it!

The fact that most people already know the rules of bingo baby shower, it can utilized as an effective icebreaker among guests who are not familiar with each other. You will have to divide your friends in teams, and this can stimulate communication and interaction between them. Bingo baby shower can help your guests get to know each other faster than any other game or theme.

Bingo baby shower planning is so easy that anyone can manage without too much hussle. Even if you are a busy working person that don’t have too much time, you can still pull off an amazing bingo baby shower by following our simple step-by-step guide:

Supplies for Bingo Baby Shower

The first thing on your list should be getting the bingo cards and some markers. You don’t have to worry about gifts and snacks now, you can prepare these seperately. You, as the host of the shower, should have the cards ready before the party starts. However, in some cases it is also appropriate to ask your guests to bring their own hand made cards. This can be more difficult to manage because you can’t be sure if they will spend the time to prepare as they should. Preperation is key, and as a host it’s better to have everything ready to eliminate any bad surprises. You can buy Baby Shower Bingo Game online that includes 15 bingo cards. The set also comes with markers and caller cards. The beautiful pastel color stands out as premium quality that your guests will love!

Bingo baby shower themes are also super fun! For example, check out this awesome Wild Safari Baby Shower Bingo Set. When you open the lovely box, you will find 428 pieces per set in one unique theme that can blend in with your overall safari baby shower theme. Cute elephants, funny lions, tropical birds and funny looking tigers with vivid colors will set the mood and entertain your guests!

baby shower bingo safari

Bingo baby shower is all about writing down the gifts you expect. In some other forms of bingo baby shower, guests will draw nice pictures related to babies. Unleash your friends creativity in this fun and interactive way and see amazing draws on the cards! The most popular bingo baby shower cards have 25 blocks (5×5 ) or 36 blocks (9×9). We don’t recommend going further than that as it will be too complex and difficult to end. A successsful game needs to be simple without too much effort. After all, it is a party! Celebrating the arrival of the new baby is the key reason you got there in the first place, not to compete with each other to death.

Bingo Baby Shower Rules

So how are you going to play bingo baby shower games? In case you haven’t played this cool bingo version before, follow these simple rules. The host usually deals the cards to each player. Guests are then expected to draw all things baby. Pacifiers, high chairs, bathtubs for infants, baby slings or even a diaper! If you are a natural drawing talent, you can even go for more complicated items like a baby stroller. Now it’s your chance to show off your advanced shadowing techniques that you developed over the years!

bingo baby shower template

The cards are then thrown in a box or a hat and you (the host) will mix them together. Get the future mother to draw the cards and read the name out loud. Players should match the names to pictures found on their bingo baby shower cards. The first player to fill up every single item on their card, wins! You can prepare a small gift for your winner, something cute and symbolic to remind the amazing time you had on your baby shower.
