5 out of 5 stars Very Nice Book with Great Attention to Details by NY Dragonfly (NYC)

OK, my first review ever, so please bear with me :)

Ms. Benjamin wrote a great book. I really like it. Not that I'm planning a Baby Shower or anything, but the last I've been to was about 3 weeks ago, so I got curious if we'd done it right. It was also my first "co-ed" baby shower (I didn't even know it was called that, LOL). I remember it was very nicely organized and it was a lot of fun, but all I could think of was how much work it must've been and how lucky I was that I wasn't the one responsible.

Well, I could swear my girlfriends must've read this book because it has it all down to the science. The seating arrangements, the games, the gifts, even the checklist, everything! And the decoration tips are great too; we threw our baby shower at a bar, and they told us to do whatever we wanted with the place which we did:), but having read the book we could've done better.

One thing I know is this: with Alison's book, throwing a great baby shower is a piece of cake. I know I won't panic if I ever have the honors.

From the Author

This book grew out of my experience of hosting multiple baby showers for friends and relatives ... and also from being on the receiving end of a baby shower prior to the birth of my son :)

It was a pleasure to write and I hope you find some worthwhile tips to help you plan the perfect baby shower. I've covered everything you need to know from planning the guest list and sending out the invitations to choosing a venue and food to organizing baby shower games that are fun for all. I've even included downloadable checklists for you at my website.

In my experience expecting parents are always mix of joyful anticipation and fidgety stress. They worry about everything and try to plan for every contingency. Being a friend or a family member, one always wonders how one can help to cope. Throwing a baby shower is a wonderful way to help expecting couple to relax, even for a little while. However what to do if you never hosted a baby shower? Being a man, I never really asked myself that question but from what I hear, baby showers can either be memorable occasions or duds, easily forgotten.

How To Plan A Baby Shower by Alison Benjamin covers everything you need to know to make sure your baby
shower is a sure hit.

This compact yet informative book covers: history of baby showers, how to properly plan and host baby shower, how to ask for help, rules of etiquette, proper menu, decorations, what games to play and even how to make 'co-ed' shower fun.

I personally liked that useful checklists are included throughout the book to make sure every base is covered.

If you are considering a baby shower, this book would be truly invaluable to you.

Very simple, but good advice on throwing a baby shower. I actually bought it for my own shower, just to make sure not to upset more traditional guests by oversights on our part. Short, but decent content.

Hi Alison,

This was a very good book for me as a father. I wondered what all the excitement was all about with this baby shower thing. The background and rationales you provide throughout the book and the the etiquette section were very helpful. Now I can more fully appreciate one other aspect of my wife's excitement.

You've done a great job in letting all hostesses discover the ins and outs of what's needed for a successful baby shower. I was looking around for some information to help put on a baby shower for a friend of mine and came across this book. I loved the many different aspects of the book especially the the etiquette surrounding baby showers. There's a great deal of very helpful and useful information such as the checklists provided around menus, last minutes things to remember, possible lists of presents, what to do when the guests arrive and fun games to play during the baby shower. I'm now looking forward to putting on my first every baby shower for my friend...

I found this book to be both well-written and useful. Packed with information on every stage of planning a baby shower, from invitations and selecting the venue to decorations, food and games. The table of contents makes it easy to scan through the various sections and Alison Benjamin included a link to her website where I could download a checklist of everything that needed to be organized or purchased for the party.

Filled with helpful, creative ideas, "How To Plan A Baby Shower" has saved me hours of thinking, organizing, decision-making ... and stress.

However it does seem to be a bit American-centric, especially with spelling. Another minor issue is that the book will point out two possible options and give little in the way of assistance in how to decide between the two. For example see the quote below.

"Who gives the shower? It seems to be frowned upon when a family member hosts a baby shower for a woman. Chances are this is because it just looks like the family asking for gifts. No doubt this is why it's not a good idea for a woman to host her own shower! However, sometimes you need to set aside these very hard and fast rules. For example, what if the mother-to-be doesn't have any very close friends that are willing or able to host a shower? Why would it be bad for her sister or favorite aunt to hostess? And sometimes there are family members that just want to hostess a shower regardless of what the etiquette books say. Maybe they've been waiting a long time for this baby, or it's just one of those types of families that does everything together.
