Though these days most parents-to-be have nailed down names and painted the nursery long before the baby arrives, some people prefer to wait and let the stork surprise them. That’s when you turn to Shindigz to throw them a fabulous shower that’s not tied to pink or baby blue decor – or even the mint green or sunshine yellow that “gender neutral” usually translates to. Our gender-neutral shower motifs include owls, bees and Fisher Price zoo animals. Our question mark baby shower pattern, split in the middle with pink and blue on either side, is popular, too. Most of our baby shower tableware comes in party packs for eight guests with all the napkins, plates, cups and utensils you need. You won’t find lower costs per setting than the prices of these party packs. Upgrade to a deluxe pack that includes decorations and your major baby shower shopping is done.
Just as parenting has changed since our grandparents’ day, so have baby showers. These days, showers often fete both parents, and the parties are just as likely to be organized by co-workers as they are lifelong friends. As a result, traditional shower games such as guessing the mom-to-be’s girth are gone – did any pregnant woman ever really like that one anyway? They’re replaced with a whole new generation of party pass-times, such as the “baby stuff” game that requires guests to list an item for each letter of the alphabet. For gender-neutral showers or if parents are simply being coy, asks guests to suggest lists of possible baby names. It’s a great collection to share with baby in the years ahead so he can be happy he wasn’t named Mortimer.
