Baby Shower Ideas For The Second Time Around

This party works especially well for a second or third child, since by then, it's clear how crucial a role dads play.

The Theme

  • Invite men and women. Encourage couples to attend.
  • Pick a standard party decor, rather than a traditional baby shower theme -- which can be a bit too heavy on pastels and baby animals for a mixed gathering.
  • Ask the guests of honor for gift suggestions ahead of time. They may have specific household or hobby items in mind.
  • If your guests will be bringing children, prepare separate kid-friendly food.
  • Display historical photos of the Mom and Dad. They can be baby pictures, wedding photos, pictures of when the couple first met.
  • Give "couples" door prizes. For example, longest-married, most recently married, most children, youngest children, etc.
