Top 3 tips to keep your baby shower party fun and engaging. A baby shower party is an unforgettable event in your favorite mother-to-be's life, but after socializing for awhile and letting the new mom open up all of her gifts, you may begin to experience a bit of a lull in the festivities. Luckily, there are a number of ways to avoid having this happen and ensure the the party moves forward without a bunch of awkward silent moments where you don't know what to do next. Keep a few of these ideas in mind to keep the event fresh and engaging for the attendees.

1. A couple's shower. Inviting the men to the baby shower has become a popular choice for many moms, and it will drastically improve the amount of activities you can do. One idea is to encourage guests to bring a present for the mom-to-be and a gag gift for the dad. After all, parenting is a two person job, so your guests can bring a number of helpful and comical gifts for the new dad to help him get a jump start on his new parenting life. Even during a couple's shower, don't forget to jazz up the look of your space with mylar balloons, personalized banners and other baby shower supplies.

2. A potluck. Combining a luncheon with your baby shower activities is a fabulous way to sample a number of delectable dishes. Be sure to have party tableware, catering supplies and imprinted napkins on hand to avoid the inevitable pile-up of dishes at the end of the bash. Enjoying a meal with a group of friends will help the shindig move along smoothly and give guests plenty of time to socialize with one another.

3. Party games. According to, creating a game of baby shower bingo is a wonderful way to add excitement while watching the new mom open her presents. Create bingo cards that feature a number of baby shower gifts, such as strollers, sheets, toys and baby monitors, and have your guests cross off each one as you go along. Give a gift card to one of your favorite stores to the winner to add a unique twist to your gathering.

By following a few of these tips, you can ensure that your best friend's baby shower is a wonderful time that she will treasure for years to come.
