How To Plan A Virtual Baby Shower

How To Plan A Virtual Baby Shower

If you are pregnant, you have most likely postponed your baby shower plans indefinitely due to the coronavirus outbreak. We all are practicing 'social distancing' as guided by the experts to stay safe and protect our family and others, we are ideally avoiding gathering of 5 or more people.

Well, does that mean that we can't celebrate the baby and you anymore?

Certainly Not! You can plan a VIRTUAL BABY SHOWER!

Yes, this means that you can host a baby shower by connecting with your friends and family on screens- Mobile or Computer/ Laptop and have a gala time together.

And since its not a normal catch up chat, here are 6 things you can do to have the perfect 'Virtual Baby Shower':

1. Decide The 'Venue' - A Digital Platform

Select a platform where all guests can connect for live video chat-Google hangout, Zoom, Skype. There are multiple options. You can select as per the majority's choice.

2. Send Out E-Invites!

To keep up with the trend, have someone to create the e-invite or even better-create it yourself! You can use various apps such as Canva for the same!

5. Plan Some Fun Games!

When you all connect to celebrate, initial 10-15 minutes are generally catching up (and sharing the proud ninjas that you all are for executing this for real!). You can then play 2-4 games such as Baby Bingo, Baby Scramble, Mommy or Daddy.
