It's quite interesting actually. Here's a trivia for you. Baby Shower dates back to the ancient times in Egypt and Rome, where the purpose was to welcome the baby to the world and to help the mommy prepare for the coming baby. Other mothers would bring hand me down baby clothes and other stuffs that could be useful to the mother and baby. Later, the purpose was to entertain the mother-to-be before and after birth. In Victorian times, the new moms were sequestered with their babies for about a month and it can get really lonely. Today, the purpose is similar to the ancient Egypt and Rome's simple and practical informal event but without the invitations, gift registries and games. (Source: Articlesbase)
Now, back to my baby shower... Me and my "Baby Shower" committee spent about a month planning and organizing the event. I specifically wanted a whimsical Nautical theme...
