Games People Play!

I believe the same old shower games keep getting played becouse people don’t know what else to do….and they haven’t contacted a party planner;D Try to remember that brides and mothers-to-be are a more sophisticated bunch than say, 20 years ago. With that in mind, I have put together a little collection of “activities” that will be fun, modern, and enjoyable. Starting with this fantastic Baby Bingo Set from Michele’s Etsy shop Cluster Design. You can see above, that it comes boxed with either 12 or 24 playing cards, a set of calling cards, and the playing chips. All of the cards are laminated so you can play multiple times, for multiple prizes, even multiple showers! These are designed with the cutest graphics for baby girl, baby boy, or neutral. This is one game I would NOT mind playing at a baby shower.

Here’s a fun game that incorporates delicious treats as prizes. The Candy Bar game correlates several different candy bar names, with several different events revolving around pregnancy and baby. For the full instructions and list of candies, check out Simply Creative Insanity here.
Another great activity is this Celebrity Baby game from Mix Mingle Glow. It is so fun to try to guess who each celebrity baby is in each picture. You can read the full post on this, and email them for further instructions by clicking here.
If a bridal shower is in your future plans, why not incorporate this activity posted by The Blonde Excuse. It is a Famous Couples Matching game. You just list one half of a famous couple and then the guests pick it’s match listed in the next column. The fun thing about this is that you can use couples past and present, real couples or TV character couples, etc. Get creative with it!
Finally, if you’re looking for some post-marriage fun at a dinner party with friends, play this Newlywed Game posted by Kendall’s Entertaining Life. There are some great sample questions provided and you can come up with some more as well. This is sure to get some laughter going! If you REALLY want to play the same old “steal the clothespin/necklace” or “open the diaper to see who has the ‘dirty’ one,” or “wrap the bride in toilet paper dress,” I can’t stop you. BUT, I urge you to try one of these games instead ; )

    No. No. No. Unless you are being ironic and doing a full on intentionally old school shower people, do not play the toilet paper game. I beg you.

    Oh, did I just type that out loud? : )

    Love,

    Thanks for these new ideas. Yes, the games are baby showers always seem to be the same. I usually try to avoid playing the games. These games might add some new spark.
