If you’re throwing a baby shower in 2019, there’s a possibility it may be co-ed. The new trend is taking the pregnancy world by storm, and allows for both happy parents to be there to celebrate the soon-to-be arrival. If you’re in charge of throwing a co-ed shower, here’s where to start:

 

The Food  

With twice as many people at the baby shower, you’ll have a lot more mouths to feed. Opt for finger foods and light bites rather than a sit-down meal to avoid higher costs and a longer wait time for food.

 

The Games

Having the guys around means ample room for girl-versus-boy friendly games. Get the competition going with a blindfolded diaper changing race on Cabbage Patch Kids, followed by “diaper pong” using diapers to aim at rather than red cups. End with a spin on a classic wedding game and ask the soon-to-be mom and dad to sit back to back and then read out questions about parenting techniques for them to answer about each other.

 

The Party Favors

Make sure the fellas don’t feel left out by including them in the baby shower gifts. One creative option is passing out cigars to save until the baby is born, and then all the father’s friends can light up together wherever they are in the world to celebrate.
