What are Great Ways to Host a Co-ed or Couples Baby Shower?

Showers are no longer just for the mother-to-be. As fathers become more and more involved in the events surrounding pregnancies and childbirth, showers are no exceptions. As pregnancy becomes more of a “couple” thing instead of a “mother” thing, so are showers.

It is not unusual or inappropriate to have a “couples” shower – although it tends to be more like a family gathering focused around a great meal than fun (and sometimes corny) games. When planning the food, try to imagine a group of men eating the dainty appetizers and frilly desserts. Instead, bring on the food and make sure you plan a hearty meal so that everyone’s satisfied and happy to sit back and relax.

If you are going to host a co-ed shower, make sure there will be plenty of guys there. If just a few guys show up, the expectant father (and few male guests) may feel uncomfortable.

Also, keep everything guy-friendly. A pink and blue lace invitation will not be very persuasive in convincing the guys to attend. Don’t be afraid to incorporate a theme, just make sure it’s one that’s festive such as a tropical theme for a cookout.

Above all, remember that a co-ed shower is more of a party than a shower. Also, any games should be ones that the guys are comfortable with as well – nothing could make a guy more nervous than having to choose a length of yarn that fits around a pregnant woman’s belly!

If it’s a group of friends, you may not need any games for entertainment – sometimes a get together and time to visit is entertainment enough. Other things to keep in mind are to include the couple’s names on the invitation so that it’s clear that it’s a co-ed shower. If you are going to have games, make sure the prizes and favors are gender neutral (or buy some for each).

Above all, leave the decision for a co-ed baby shower up to the father-to-be. He may feel as though he’s barging in on something that isn’t meant for him and his buddies. If this is the case, let it go and plan a great party for the mother-to- be and rest assured that the father-to-be will be enjoying one of his last occasions to do “guy-stuff” before the baby’s birth.
