Virtual Baby Shower
Got internet? Throw a virtual baby shower with your loved ones from around the world from your home.
Due dates arn't changing. And while we wish we could all be celebrating together with our
friends and family, a virtual baby shower is the next best thing. Hosting a virtual baby
shower will allow you to create a space to celebrate your new baby-to-be with your loved ones
from around the world while you're apart. Don't worry - we're here to guide you with our tips and
tricks to make hosting your first online baby shower fun and easy!

You'll need a virtual place to meet up! Good news - there's plenty of options available. Just pick your
venue and include your shareable link or details on all your invites.
No time? You can also host a web baby shower all in one place with invites, a registry and photo gallery here.
1) Zoom - easy for everyone to use. You can create a virtual room and send out the ID and password
to your guests on their invites. All you need is an internet connection and a web browser. Keep in mind that
the free version of Zoom only allows for 40 minutes. Ask someone for their login if you need!
2) Skype - another video chat favorite of ours! It's also free and easy to use on any computer, tablet or phone.
It also allows for up to 50 guests and there's no time limit!
3) Facetime - free for all Apple users (sorry Androids) and allows up to 32 guests tuning in on their phones
4) Houseparty - a face to face social networking app, you can also use this platform which is compatible
with Android, iPhone and your desktop! You can play games on Houseparty, but there is an 8 guest limit.
Try and hookup to your tv screen so your guests have a better view! PS. Don't forget to test out your
connection prior to the party.
Now to get the word out! Make sure you include all the technical details for anyone who's not
tech savvy. Send out your invites well in advance and let them know where to send gifts if applicable.
1) Digital - if you'd like to keep your entire baby shower easy and virtual - digital is the way to go.
Send invites from sites like Paperless Post, or the classic Evite! This option is paperless and
still offers tons of different design options and cool features like music and gifs. You can send online
games and printouts to all your confirmed guests after their RSVP.
2) Physical - If you want to keep it traditional, that works too! We love getting a card in the mail
just as much. You could also send out digital RSVPS and then physical cards to all your confirmed
guests with game print outs and treats!
have to decorate the space that will be on camera! You can come up with a theme, use balloons, wall
decorations and anything else you want to add to your space. Balloon arch? Photo backdrop?
You may not be physically together, but you can still play tons of virtual games. Here are some
of our favorite ideas. Have your guests come ready with paper and pencils.
1) The Price is Right - show your guests a number of different baby items and have them
guess the cost by writing it down. Have them all show their guesses to the camera at
the same time. The closest guess wins!
2) Scavenger Hunt - have a list of household items to hunt for and let your guests search
in their own homes in an allotted time. Those with the most items win!
2) How Big is Mama's Belly? - a baby shower favorite - you can still have your guests guess
just how big your belly is! Have them write down their answers and show the camera. Then
measure yourself on camera and pick the winner!
3) Printouts - get printouts for games like Who Knows Mommy Best?, Advice for Mom and Dad, or
Baby Mad Libs and email them to your guests to printout and have prepared for the party. You can
find some free printouts here, here and here.
You can either choose to mail out prizes after the event, or support your local businesses with small
e-gift cards that can be sent to your game winners!
your guests take turns opening their gifts for you on screen!
There are no rules to your virtual baby shower!
