Activities: Hand-Lettered Name Reveal

The gender reveal was months ago, but the excitement doesn't end there. Collaborate with parents-to-be and use this shower as an opportunity to reveal the baby's name to all their friends and family. Let your creative juices flow and turn to your theme to dictate how you showcase the name at your event. This adorable, hand-lettered chalkboard made the perfect statement piece at a collegiate-themed shower.

Activities: Colorful Advice

Let guests help with the party decor by stringing up colorful cards with advice and well wishes for the parents-to-be. Cut out colorful shapes of your choice — we love these sweet animal shapes — and let guests choose which card they want. By the end of the party, you'll have an entire wall of thoughtful advice.

Activities: Double-Duty Decor

If the guest of honor has chosen a name for the baby, spell it out in large, painted chipboard letters. As partygoers arrive, have them use permanent markers to write messages and sign their names. The finished piece can then be taken home and hung in the nursery as sentimental wall art.
