Games to Keep the Laughter Rolling

Games are the heartbeat of any baby shower, and we've got ideas that'll have your guests giggling in no time.

How about "Diaper Duty Dare"? Attach silly dares to the bottom of some diapers, and let the parents-to-be discover them when changing diapers down the road.

And speaking of diapers, "Guess the Baby Food" is a hilarious classic. Blindfolded participants taste various baby food flavors and try to guess what they are. The reactions alone are worth it!

Feast for the Eyes and Tummies

For a boy baby shower, go for an array of blue treats like blueberry muffins, blue velvet cupcakes, and ocean-inspired Jell-O cups.

A candy buffet filled with blue candies and sweets will keep everyone's sugar cravings satisfied.

For something more substantial, consider a DIY sandwich station with mini sliders and wraps.

And let's not forget the punch – a blue raspberry sherbet punch will quench thirst and add a pop of color!
