Coed Baby Showers
Planning the Coed Baby Shower
Pre-planning will be important. The party planner should consult both parents about their personal opinion and tastes unless you plan on throwing a surprise shower.
Make sure the dad-to-be attends-if he doesn't attend most guys will follow suit. In case the dad-to-be cannot attend or help with the party planning process, have the expecting mother designate another male friend who can take his place.
Make sure the dad-to-be or substitute remembers the party details: date, time, place, etc. He will most likely be asked by confused guests.
Consider your guests' food restrictions and appetites; avoid dainty tea-sandwiches and petit-fours and opt instead for a variety of dishes that will appeal to everyone.
Plan an appropriate baby shower theme.
Plan a retreat (another room) for hasty male guests who don't want to participate in games or uncomfortable conversations.
Lastly, do not go wild with decorations that fit only the female aesthetic (i.e. flowers, the color pink, etc.). The goal is to welcome - not frighten - your male guests
