The first rule of baby shower planning is don't talk about baby shower planning. Just kidding! That's the first rule of the Fight Club. If you're planning your baby shower, of course you want to talk about your ideas — and coming up with cute themes is one of the best parts.
However, putting together a baby shower can be stressful, too — though it really shouldn't be. The party is meant for fun and relaxation before baby arrives, not to create more stress in your life.
First off, choose a theme that you like, whether it's a little off-the-wall or totally traditional. And you should definitely seek the help of a trusted, organized friend to help with the planning process . That way you can kick back, get pampered and enjoy your special day.
To help out, we've rounded up some cute themes we've seen around the internet. These will provide some serious inspiration.
