bridal shower games for large groups

The best way to help you put together a baby shower is to organize a section just for the occasion. So, we have put together this section just for Baby Showers that will give you ideas and games to play.

Baby Bottle Nut Holder

Required: Baby bottles

Purchase inexpensive baby bottles. Remove the nipples and fill the bottles with a mixture of nuts and mints. Replace collar on bottle and shake contents into hands. It looks cute on the tables and it keeps hands from dipping into a bowl.

Bootie Decoration

Required: Large marshmallows, toothpicks, frosting, cake decorating bag, cookie sheet

Color the frosting into preferred colors for the baby booties. Each bootie will take three marshmallows and two toothpicks. Place two marshmallows on top of each other (flat sides together) and push a toothpick through them. The third marshmallow place next to the two with the flat side down and run a toothpick through the side connecting it to the bottom of the other two. Use a star tip and cover all of marshmallows with frosting this way. Ideas for decorating would be to cover in white and accent the edge with pink or blue frosting. Use a thin writing tip to create shoelaces and allow to air dry to harden.

To make this idea into a game add a scoop of peanut butter into a few of the diapers. The recipients of the dirty diapers could receive a simple gift like hand wipes or air fresheners.

Punch Bowl

Required: Baby tub, rubber ducks, and teething rings

For a unique looking punch bowl you could use the small bathtubs that they give out at the hospital, purchase a baby tub or use your normal punch bowl. Purchase baby items to float in the punch bowl like rubber ducks, toy boats or whatever theme you’re using. Purchase teething rings, freeze and use as ice rings within the punch.

Receiving Blanket Wrap

Required: Thin printed receiving blankets and diaper pins

When I purchase a gift for a baby shower, which is going to be wrapped in a shirt box, I use receiving blankets to creatively wrap my gift. Why pay for wrapping paper when a blanket won’t be wasted and tossed away. Use either 1 inch gold safety pins or diaper pins to hold the blankets around the package. For a bow you can use items that will also be useful for the new parents like pacifiers, teething rings, stuffed animals, booties, baby socks and add a little bit of ribbon if needed for filler.

Small Ice Pool

Required: Small pool and ice

If you’re doing a picnic shower outside and you have several guests and items to keep cold here’s a tip. Purchase a small inflatable wadding pool, place on a plastic tablecloth and fill with ice. You can then place your salads and desserts within the pool to keep cold. This idea works great for other events like graduation parties and picnic.
