Which theme to choose for a baby-show?
Most often, the Baby Shower is organized around a theme, which will serve as a reference for decoration, meals and activities organized during the evening.
Here are some themes ideas for your evening:

What activities do during the evening?
You are pregnant and you want to organize a Baby Shower ?
Cache Coeur offers you a selection of games to liven up your evening!
1. Give a necklace to each participant in the event. Whenever they pronounce the word "baby", their necklace will be removed from them by the one who has surprised them to pronounce the prohibited word.
At the end of the evening, the winner is the one who has the most necklace. We can give him a small reward.
2. At the start of the evening, each participant draws a rubber bracelet on which is written
"My name is pacifier" "layer" or "bottle". Throughout the Baby Shower, everyone is called by their new name. The one who is mistaken gives his bracelet to the one who noticed the error. The person with the most bracelets at the end of the evening will be rewarded.
3. Each of the guests brings a photo of her baby. Put all the photos together and try to find which person corresponds to which photo.
4. A classic! The guests must guess the size of the future mother. Each cuts a piece of string/wool corresponding to what it thinks is the size of the future mother and we test the measurement on the pregnant woman. The person closest to reality wins a small gift.
