CYBER BABY SHOWER IDEAS

With so many families miles apart, I get more and more requests for cyber baby shower ideas. If you aren't familiar with this kind of baby shower, it's not actually a baby shower theme. It's a baby shower that takes place via the internet using a service like Skype or Facebook or some other virtual location in cyberspace.

Needless to say when all the visuals and communication take place via a webcam or through keystrokes, hostesses have to really focus and be creative to give the affair a festive atmosphere and to make all of the virtual guests feel like they are taking part in the celebration.


CYBER BABY SHOWER INVITATIONS
Just because the shower is taking place on the web does NOT mean that your invites should be delivered by email. Budget permitting, I believe that cards delivered the old-fashioned way using the United States Postal Service is one tradition that is well worth keeping.

CYBER BABY SHOWER DECORATIONS

No mother-to-be can feel properly showered without decorations. One of the best cyber baby shower ideas I've seen was to have a cute banner made with the baby's name on it and pop them in the mail in time for the guest of honor in time for the party! The banner will make a nice backdrop and the guests will be able to see it while mom is opening her gifts.

And speaking of gifts, it's a great idea for the guests to choose items from the guest of honor's registry, have all gifts shipped directly to her and then she can open them while her cyber guests watch!

I'm sure as this type of shower becomes more commonplace, there will be more and more cyber baby shower ideas to share. Meanwhile, the best advice is to forget that you are chatting via the internet and behave as though everyone is together in the same room and have a great time. Appreciate the times we live in and enjoy that distance doesn't keep you from celebrating with your friends and taking part in important events! Isn't it nice to know that with today's technology, we're never far apart!
