A Time Capsule Baby Shower Party

A time capsule will serve as a historical marker of baby's birth!

The Theme

This idea is fun for the guests, and the expectant mom will come away with a thoughtful gift for the future.

  • On the invitation, ask guests to bring one small item for the time capsule.
  • Prepare a large box to serve as the capsule. It can be an ordinary box, decorated with current newspaper headlines. Or you can choose a prepared gift box. You might also want to consider a container that's made of a sturdy and waterproof material.
  • Decorate the room with memory-themed artwork, such as newspaper pages from key years, or movie posters that recall an era.
  • Serve foods, such as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or summer lemonade, that will inspire guests to remember important events from their pasts.
  • Have guests come in costume -- let them choose their favorite eras.
  • Fire up the video camera to capture the event on film.
