BABY SHOWER EBOOK:
PRINTABLE BABY SHOWER HOSTESS SURVIVAL GUIDE
Some cute picture ideas are to take a close-up of just your baby's face, take a picture of his/her feet, or dress them up in a new outfit and take a full picture. Nothing beats outside lighting if it is a sunny day!

When filling out your birth announcements , don't forget to include your baby's full name, gender, date and time born, and his/her weight and length.
A cute baby saying is "Our Family Has Grown By Two Feet!" Print announcement information out on decorative paper, add some embellishments (craft stores have darling baby-themed decorations for card making), and you're done! Keep it simple, you've got a baby to take care of!

Another cute idea is to have custom candy bar wrappers made with all of your baby's birth information on it. These are adorable and creative! Candy bar wrappers are a timeless baby announcement idea (just like handing real or bubblegum cigars out to celebrate the birth of a baby.) I passed wrapped Hershey's candy bars out when my first daughter was born (in 1998) and everyone loved them! Only then they cost 3x times as much to have them custom made as they do today.
And last but not least - celebrate your new little one by having an open house. This is where friends and family can drop by throughout the day (or over a few hours) to visit the baby. This is a little more low-key than a full fledged party and less hectic for the baby.
The trendy term for an open house is now a "Baby Shower Sip N' See!" Guests stop by for a drink, a few snacks and they get to see the new bundle of joy! We love this idea! It is also a wonderful way to incorporate the new dad into the "baby shower" experience.
We designed a few cute signs that will fit perfectly in a new baby's nursery! They are all free and all you have to do is print them out and place them in a cute picture frame. Hang on a wall in the nursery or place on the baby's dresser.
