Should Your Other Half Have A Baby Stag?

Should Your Other Half Have A Baby Stag?

Should Your Other Half Have A Baby Stag?

Should Your Other Half Have A Baby Stag? Give the daddy-to-be a chance to celebrate the new arrival with his very own Baby Stag.

Girls, we all know what a baby shower involves. It is a chance to get all your close friends and family together to celebrate your little bundle of joy entering the world. You gather around, eat some delicious treats, play some fun games and make the mum-to-be feel extra special. If you didn't know already, we love them!

However, how does the daddy-to-be celebrate? There is so much focus on the mummy (and rightly so) but doesn't the daddy deserve a little party too? This is where the Baby Stag comes in.

What is a Baby Stag?

A Baby Stag is where the dad-to-be can head out with his friends and have fun before the little one arrives. This is often looked at as his 'last send off'. The group can keep this Baby Stag as low key or wild as they please. Something tells us his friends will want to keep it more on the wild side however! This party is modeled after the traditional stag party that takes place before a wedding. Drinks will be had, questionable dance moves will be thrown and heads will be sore the next day.

If your other half is in need of some inspiration here are a list of great ideas for the day/night;

  • BBQ (if the sun is out)
  • Paintball
  • Bowling
  • Brewery Tour
  • Comedy Show
  • Or simply head out for some pizza and beers

Would your other half have a Baby Stag girls? They should really have a celebration just like we do! If her has had a Baby Stag, tell us on our Facebook or Twitter.

We All Need More Cupcakes In Our Lives

Woman eating cupcakes

Cupcakes-Yum Yum!

Hello parents to be!  We know that hosting a baby shower involves some planning and it is nice to find ways to make some aspects of that easier. So cupcakes are a lovely way to add colour and decor...before you eat them that is! Ask the Mummy To Be what kind of ideas she would like to see at the baby shower...Pin, pin, pin! Who else loves Pinterest? :) And they are just so adaptable-you really can make them to your taste and to suit any theme that you have in mind. Enjoy the sweetness. A perfect baby shower!

Sweet!

 

Baby Necessities

How cute would these be at a baby shower? It would be so hard to eat them-we would just want to keep them forever. All of baby essentials are present with these cupcakes and you can always add more essentials. Vaseline, Sudocrem, Gripe Water and Calpol anyone? :) How talented is your baker and would they like a challenge? :)

The simple things in life are the sweetest...food, sleep and bubble baths!

Once you are finished, get dressed up in all of your finery and go for tea.  We think a Vintage Tea Party is a delightful way to celebrate a baby shower and these sweet treats would compliment this theme perfectly.

So Many Mocktails, So Little Time

Raise A Toast

Mmmm, Delicious Mocktails!

We just can't resist. So delicious and irresistible... and so easy. Making mocktails is easy too and it will be fun to get all of the guests involved. Once you have made the drinks, raise a toast to Mummy To Be and her imminent arrival. It is always good to celebrate the special moments in life. And if you don't have space to accommodate all of the guests at the baby shower, why not try our Non-Alcoholic Cocktail class. No washing up later for anyone then! :)

Ready for some fun? :)

 

 

Cuddles On The Beach

Cuddles On The Beach is a mocktail version of Sex On The Beach and just as delicious. All you need to do is replace the Peach Schnapps with Peach Nectar, and remove the vodka. Some simple tweaks and you are done...Easy Peasy!

3 ounces grapefruit juice

Yum without the rum!

How The Stars Celebrate Their Bumps

Small Baby Shower

How The Stars Celebrate

It's time to have fun and celebrate the imminent arrival, and here are some gorgeous ideas from some of our favourite celebrities. So many baby showers to choose from and so little time. Baby showers really are just lovely, no matter if you are a celebrity or a scientist! Full of cake, and rain... ( sometimes we are lucky to have sunshine in Ireland!). We know, right. Here are some of the cutest snaps from the stars special days ahead of their little one's imminent arrival. Everyone wants the best for their babies.

One word....Stunning!

 

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's Baby Shower

What a beautiful and summery baby shower! Rosie looked gorgeous in a silk chiffon dress with lace detail, as she chose to celebrate her baby shower in a low key manner with her family and friends at an intimate garden party. A garden party is a sweet theme if you are having a baby shower in the summer. Rosie chose summery and simple decor, much like her dress style on the day, using some simple details such as adorning the guests dining area with fresh flowers and gold tableware. We can't wait to hear about the new arrival! :)

Summer Beauty

 

Katherine Heigl's Baby Shower

Another sweet celebration...we love this couple! :) Katherine's mother graciously organised a beautiful and celebratory baby shower, and Katherine shared the details of the event on her website, ''Those Beautiful Days''. Check it out-she loves to blog, and there is plenty of Pinspiration too! Katherine was given a voice over the theme of the event by her mother, and chose a Mountain/Christmas Holidays theme. Simple winter white bouquets, rattan place mats, pine cones and naturally shed deer antlers were all part of her baby shower.

Surprise! :)

3 More Reasons To Have A Baby Shower

Small Baby Shower

So Many Reasons To Have A Baby Shower

Alright, get planning ladies and gents... (we can't leave out the boys!). There are so, so many reasons to enjoy a baby shower, and we will tell you some more of these reasons now. To begin with, celebrations are fun anyway. I think we can all agree with that premise. Yay for get togethers! They are also such a good excuse to get all of those friends and family together that you haven't been able to see in a while. Life can just get so busy, don't you agree?!

Treasured friendships and memories

 

Reason No. 1

Memories. What better reason to have a shower than to create more happy memories that can sustain you through the long nights when baby is awake. Memories last a lifetime, so even when the lovely gifts are used, you still have loving moments from your big day to sustain your spirit, and give you strength. Who doesn't love reminiscing over old pictures of an important moment in their life?

Remember the time when.... :D

 

Reason No. 2

A time to have fun. Being pregnant and then giving birth are stressful events for a lot of Mummy's To Be, and that is when everything is going as smoothly as possible. Imagine when there are complications. It can be good to have a distraction, so take some time to have a break and dare we say it, have fun. :) Baby will thank you for it too. All those endorphins making everyone feel good.

To friendship...we just wanna have fun! :D

 

Reason No. 3

For some people, they may not have more than one child, for private reasons, and more so, if it was a tough experience. This is a good reason to gather your family and friends around you, in case you need the support.

Where would we be without our family and friends? :)

Cutest Baby Shower Activities Ever

Head Massage Party 750x422

Never Enough Baby Shower Activities

We're back, with more irresistible baby shower ideas than ever. These activities can provide a break from the norm too. We have had many queries from customers asking us if we had other ideas apart from the traditional baby shower activities, and we love nothing more than to help organise a good baby shower for Mummy To Be and her guests.

Nom, nom, nom!

 

Bowtie Baby Bib

What a creative and fun idea! It is perfect for a Bow or Bow Tie baby shower theme. Don't forget that you can use bows if you want to decorate a girl's bib. And if you feel like tearing up the rule book regarding these ideas, that's good too. It's your baby shower, so have fun, and make it personal. :) Either way, baby will be drooling in style with these adorable bow tie baby bibs. Starting with a nice clear space, gather the bibs and bow ties, and lay them out on a table, like below. Have a few containers of fabric glue or if anyone fancies sewing, that's fabulous also.  Try to pick various colours, and fabrics in your choice of bibs and bowties for everyone to use during the activity. :)

 

 

To bowtie or not to bowtie...

 

Wishes For Baby

How cute is this! :) Gather some twine or similar material, and stretch it across the chosen space which you are going to use. Attach using blu-tack or something stronger to the wall, if chosen-that's up to you. Ask everyone to cut out animal shapes, or if you prefer pre-cut shapes, you can find them in a children's craft shop. Use any colours you like. Ask all the guests to write their wishes for baby on a animal shape, and using pegs, hang them up on the twine. Voila! If you would prefer to use something other than animals to suit your baby shower theme, then just cut out your chosen shapes or buy pre-cut shapes. Have fun.

Wish upon a star

 

Baby Shower Activities Verdict

Perfect activities. With a little preparation, these activities will have the Mummy To Be and all of her guests bonding and enjoying the baby shower. They will always be kept as keepsakes, we think.

Top Three Baby Shower Products In May

Online Shopping

Our Favourite Baby Shower Products In May

We are always looking for feedback here at the babyshower.ie office in regards to the top baby shower products for the month of May. How time flies! So after checking with our customers, here are the results. :) We hope that you will have fun using these products at your baby shower too.

Goodies galore!

 

Big Sister/Big Brother Wristbands

These Big Sister/Big Brother Wristbands are a simple, yet sweet gift to give to the sibling to be, as we have all seen the insecurity and jealousy that arises when we feel left out. Once the baby arrives, they need so much care and attention as expected, and to help solve the insecure feelings that arise when all that is happening, provide the older siblings with a role that is important also. They will be happier to help you then, well, most of the time. :) It has happened to most of us as children when the younger one comes along-we can empathise with the feelings that come about as a result of all of these changes. How did your older children react when they had a new sibling?

Age and size matters! ;)

 

It's A Girl Picks

Another popular item this month, and we can see why. :) Definitely a gender reveal if you only have these at your baby shower, but if you feel like teasing your guests, and making them wait longer, we have them in blue too. They are perfect for your cupcake decoration needs.

It's a girl! :)

 

Modern Stroller Keepsake Register

The neutral colours in this stylish keepsake register are perfect for any baby shower. So chic! What a lovely gift to present to the Mummy To Be at the baby shower.

So elegant and stylish... :)

 

Our Verdict

Gorgeous and just perfect for any baby shower! :)
