Virtual Baby Shower

Here’s an interesting idea… An acquaintance recently organized a virtual baby shower for distant friends and family. Gifts were snail-mailed in advance. On the given date, people called the parents-to-be throughout the day. The parents opened the respective gifts as each person called, and everyone had a grand time reminiscing and chatting about the future.

    I think this is a great idea especially for military families that can not get away.

    We are having a remote Storybook Shower for our son and his wife who are having twins. Everyone brings a book, we decorate bookplates, film them telling why they chose this book, wrap and decorate. Games, cake and goodies for guests. Hopefully these children’s books will be packed in to one suitcase along with the CD of the party and 2 pieces of cake and carried to them the following week when we travel to Texas for her family’s shower!
