We're expecting our first baby boy around January 9....We're trying to get ideas together so my mom/MIL can figure out what to do about a shower. (they've already asked)
But here's the problems.....my family/friends ALL live in FL. His family/friends ALL live in TX. And we live in CA. Due to DH's job and financial situations currently we would not be able to fly to both TX and FL for baby showers. So we thought about doing a webchat/vitural baby shower. Has anyone done/had/been to one?? Any ideas/suggestions would be great!! I know there's this site: http://www.webbabyshower.com/ which we may use, not sure yet. Any games, activites, invite wordings, etc??
When do you think would be a good time to have/do a baby shower? Must showers my moms been to were when she was like 36 weeks along. I think I'd rather not wait that long, as I want/hope to get everything together/ready sooner than that and since we know what we're having do you think around 30 weeks would be an ok time frame?
So let's here those suggestions/ideas!!
Sorry for all the questions....I'm new to this! First time mommy and never been to a baby shower! Thanks sooooo much!!!!
i have never done a virtual shower but i think it would be fun. If you have a webcam or I think you can use skype.
You can do the guess how big mommy is with toilet paper, have people take a strip of toilet paper and then you take a strip of toilet paper and count how many squares are in and broadcast that to them.
As far as the date you are not due too much after I am and my shower will be in Oct because I don't want to get into the holiday rush. You could have yours the first week of November or late Oct. My cousin had her shower when she was 37 weeks but she was also 2 weeks overdue.
Let us know how it goes.
Angel mommy to Kenna Cole now 2 years old and ruling the roost!!! I need a new siggie!!!
I don't want to get into the holiday rush either, so October may be a good idea...DH and my bdays are both in October Thanks for the ideas!
We do have a web cam and I think we'll ask my mom and MIL to get a web cam too, so then we will invite everyone to there house on blank day so they can watch me open gifts and play games. There would be two days...one for the FL family/friends and one for the TX family/friends. Otherwise there'd be too many people and it would be hard to have 2 web chats going on at once, since the TX and FL couldn't hear each other
Any ideas for invitation wording? So they understand that it will be a webchat/virtual baby shower and to please send the gifts/order online and have them arrive by the day the shower is. How soon in advance do you think we should send out invites, so they can order and have gifts shipped before the web chat shower day?? 3 - 4 weeks?
