You had it all planned. Whether you were planning a baby shower for your friend, a relative or perhaps your own, it was all perfect - and then there is a UK lockdown and everything is left in question. Not to worry, the global pandemic and a little social distancing doesn’t mean the baby shower cannot happen, you’ll just have to reach for plan B – the virtual baby shower. We’ve gathered all the key information so you can still party at home in 5 easy steps!
Before you start planning any other elements of your shower, you’ll need to consider your guest list and how many people you wish to invite (virtually of course). When it comes to sending the invitations, you can send them via email or if you want to keep it simple or are short on time then set up a Facebook event and invite everyone to the group.
THERE ARE PLENTY OF PLATFORMS THAT ALLOW YOU TO CONNECT TO YOUR FRIENDS VIA VIDEO CALL, OUR FAVOURITES INCLUDE, SKYPE, ZOOM, FACETIME (SUPPORTED BY IPHONES ONLY) AND GOOGLE HANGOUTS. ALL SUPER EASY TO SET UP AND WILL WORK ON EITHER YOUR PHONE, LAPTOP, TABLETS OR SMART TV. FOR MORE ADVICE ON VIDEO CALLS, CLICK THE IMAGES BELOW.
The key to any baby shower is the games! They're definitely the best part and one element that definitely shouldn’t be disregarded just because of a little social distancing. Games such as 'Guess the number of Jellybeans in the jar', or maybe try out our 'How Big is your Bump' game to start. Alternatively, why not take it in turns to play 'Guess the Price'. One guest can hold up a baby item and the other guests have to take a guess at what the price of that item is.
