Baby shower planning can be tough -- not just because of all the details, but because for most women, it's hard to relax and enjoy a special day that's all about you. Think of it this way. In just a few months, you're going to be knee-deep in baby and a lot of the fun and relaxation in your life will be put on pause for a while.
With that in mind, we're giving you total permission to enjoy your baby shower exactly how you want to. Choose a theme that you like, whether it's totally weird or totally traditional. Enlist a trusted friend or family member to help you with the planning process so that you can kick back, get pampered and enjoy your special day. And if you need some inspiration, we've rounded up all our favorite baby shower themes that are way different than the typical duckie and bootie decor.
