Hosting a virtual baby shower


You had it all planned.

Whether you were planning a baby shower for your friend, a relative or perhaps your own, it was all perfect – and then there is a world wide shut down and everything is left in question. Not to worry, the global pandemic and a little social distancing doesn’t mean a baby shower can not still happen. Why not have a party at home and a virtual baby shower online with all your family and friends.

The guest list & Invites

To make feel as close to the original as possible, why not send her a little package with some goodies to enjoy a few days before the virtual shower event so they can hang all the decorations up. It’ll make the mummy-to-be feel special knowing everyone is thinking of her.
You can also use Amazon to send gifts or drop them off on her doorstep.



This is my actual favourite part. Just because the in-person baby shower is cancelled, it doesnt mean you can’t still decorate. Why not start by hanging up a few decorations maybe some baby shower bunting, and some baloons it will really impress everyone. If your after a tutorial on how to make a baloon garland and some decoration printables I will post some in the group to accompany this blog.

The key to any baby shower is the games of course! They are definitely the best part and one element that definitely shouldn’t be disregarded.

Guess the Number. The host holds up a jar filled with sweets (M&Ms, jelly beans,) and asks guests to guess how many are inside.

Name That Baby Song. The host plays different nursery rhymes or popular baby songs and guests try to guess the name as quickly as they can.

Who’s That Baby? Before the shower starts, ask the guests to email photos of themselves as babies to the host. The host shares them with the group on the call and everyone tries to guess who is who.


You can also have a virtual “guestbook” for your shower. To do this you can make a presentation on google slides and send the link for your guests to fill out their page with their advice for the mum to be.

Have fun and be sure to let us see some pictures in the group.
