Summer is coming, so head out into the yard! Take your baby shower outside with you by hosting it as a couples barbecue party instead of a traditional shower. Your guests will enjoy the fresh air, sizzling barbecue, friends and conversation while you shower the baby-in-queue to all kinds of treasures and necessities.
Most people would rather attend a barbecue than an indoor baby shower. I’m just sayin’. The barbecue format is friendly to the couples shower format by design and reputation. It is standard protocol to attend a barbecue as a couple.
Consider skipping the games and group gift opening, unless your games are couple vs. couple, which could prove to be interesting. Or how about his vs. hers (blue vs. pink) on teams?
If your goal is to help the parents-to-be prepare for the bun-in-the-oven, and to let them feel supported by sharing in their excitement, a baby-que may be the best solution for your baby shower!
