Baby shower party supplies

I've searched my favorite baby shower stores for the best party essentials: invites, decorations, cake supplies, diaper cakes, favors, games, and gifts for both baby and mommy. If you still have shopping to do for your party, or you need a gift, visit the party supplies page.

While you're browsing, remember to keep these quick shopping tips in mind:

1. If you're a hostess, consider the baby shower decorating kits as an alternative to buying all your decorations separately. The kits come with a complete set of tableware (including a tablecloth for your head table), balloons, banner and streamers. A lot of the kits also have matching invitations and thank you cards.

2. If you are going to be a guest at a baby shower and you need a gift, the most important thing to remember is the baby's gender. Rule of thumb is pinks for girls and blues for boys. Not saying you have to stick with those colors only, but use them as a basis. If you're just stuck on what to get for the baby, buy a baby shower gift for mom instead.

3. Don't wait til the last minute to go shopping! Whether you're a hostess or a guest, it's always best to start looking around early. If you wait until the last minute, you may be rushed into getting something that you are not as happy with.

I like your point. Why just get a gift for baby? You can get one to mom also. Even better if you can get one that is for both mom & child...
About the colors, you can always get brown, green, cyan... They look good on both a girl and a boy. I really don't like those typical "girl is red, boy is blue" divisions...
