Our site presents the newest trends in baby showers.
Baby showers became popular in the U.S. during and after World Wars 1 and 2, when economically strapped parents needed a little help to prepare for their new babies. However, gift-giving to new parents upon the birth of a baby was common among the Greeks and Romans. The practice continued into the Victorian era, when tea parties, known as “stork parties,” games, and gifts were common right after the babe was born.
Modern baby showers present parents with their baby needs in an event that features themes, decorations, food, favors, and games. Traditionally, the parties were mainly for women in celebration of their first babies.
Modern baby shower trends include coed showers, diaper parties attended mainly by men, mini-showers or “sprinkles” for subsequent babies, gender-neutral showers, and one of the latest types of celebrations – gender reveal parties.
Now that technology enables most parents to find out the sex of their baby before birth, many couples hold elaborate parties to announce the sex of their unborn child. Some of these events have involved canons that misfired and made the announcements newsworthy.
