I knew something was going on when I started walking up the stairs. My husband had let it slip that some friends were coming over, and I had a good idea what they were doing.
We had been out all morning-he said we had to be out. When we drove home, I could tell by his face that there was a surprise waiting for me upstairs.
When I rounded the corner, they yelled, “Surprise!” I tried to hide a bit to keep my composure. Setting my bag down on the kitchen counter, I was surprised-even if I had hints that a surprise baby shower was waiting for me.
It did not take away any of the specialness of the occasion or my extreme appreciation for the friends that I had only known for 6 months.
As a military family, we move a lot. My first born arrived when we were stationed in Virginia for only a year. The fact that those amazing ladies got together to plan and hold a baby shower for my first born was truly memorable.
It still makes me smile looking at the pictures in my baby book.
I was blessed by a baby shower or sprinkle for every pregnancy, and was so blessed to have people who thought of every detail when they planned each party.
Every event was slightly different but planning a baby shower is never a small task. One simple tip I can give you is to find customizable baby shower invitations.
Baby Shower Invitations
One theme that works for a baby shower for a boy or a baby shower for a girl is animal baby shower invitations. Basic Invite allows you to personalize your baby shower invitations for boys or girls right on their website with adorable themes.

Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders.
When I saw the food, cake, gifts and decorations at my baby showers, it was like no other experience.
My first born baby boy arrived after a previous miscarriage (my first pregnancy), so he was very much a major milestone for us. As the first grandchild on both sides of the family, we were ready to bring him into the world to enjoy him with our families.
Receiving such a cute celebration for him is a memory I cherish forever. You never forget your first baby shower.
