Throwing a Modern Mummy Baby Shower


bluebabyshowergufts.jpg

What and who is a Modern Mummy? A Modern Mum is a woman who goes through pregnancy up to date with technology – she has a weekly pregnancy update on her face book profile and tweets from her iphone when she feels her baby kick for the first time. She knows all about BPA, Sulphates, Petrochemicals, and is ordering her stock of modern cloth nappies and organic baby bath products and has started to practice making pureed 3 course meals for her baby. She has an amazingly clever maternity wardrobe that can be adjusted and worn through and beyond pregnancy. She is a savvy and eco-conscious woman with a stack of pregnancy, birth and child-wrangling books, magazines and e-zines to refer to, yet with all of this is still calm and down to earth, and you have to put together a baby shower for her. Now what?

I was so busy being a Modern Mum-to-be, that I forgot to consider a baby shower! Don’t let it intimidate you though. You can really have some fun with it. If she is eco-conscious then you can look at a Green Baby shower and down the centre of the tables have planters of green grass decorated with butterflies and bumblebees. For gifts a little watering can with a pack of flower seeds (in a flat pocket paper bag which, if you look up online, you can find flowers matched to the birth month of the baby (e.g. August is Poppy). Or you could have the eco tote gift.

For a chic baby shower you could have crisp white table cloths, glass vases with roses and the centre piece vase with an ultrasound image of the baby (little feet are beautiful). Crystal scatters around the vases with gourmet cupcakes set in laser cut cupcake cups. Hang up some glass candle holders and bunting. For guests you can choose from Pink Frosting's lovely range of miniature photo frames as place cards and gifts. Gifts for a modern mum and her modern bub; a Kensington travel mug, or a piece of personalised jewellery – Pink Frosting have some beautiful bracelets and necklaces available for the mum to be. There are also manicure sets and cosmetic bags for mum. For bub you cannot go wrong with bottles (BPA free of course), bibs, nappies, socks and singlets, organic baby bath products and clothing.

Just because she is a Modern Mum, don’t forget to add in some fun for the party. Get her in one of Pink Frosting’s maternity shirts  - the Coming Soon t-shirt is pretty cute and funny and throw some games like guess the baby food, who’s the Baby? (Guests bring in photos and you have to guess the baby with the adult) baby bingo and also grab a baby shower games pack from Pink Frosting.

When I think of the Modern Mum, I think of celebrities such as Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Alba, Gwynneth Paltrow. Jennifer and Reese just get on with being a mum whilst looking stylish. Jessica Alba is an eco-Modern Mum who had her home decked out in environmentally and chemically free furniture and products. Gwynneth is a tech-savvy Modern Mum with her Goop website where she muses on motherhood. Many of my female friends and family are Modern Mums, all keeping us up to date with their pregnancies via social networking sites, setting up and running their own home businesses, are considerate to environmental issues, and just loving being a mum. That is it, I think being a Modern Mum means to be a mum who just goes with it and loves her baby!
