In Brazil, we don’t have the tradition to someone else host a baby shower or a bridal shower for someone. In some cases, the mom of the bride or the soon to be grandma will host it.
Since, I live far away from my family and I cannot travel to go and see them, I have to take the matter in my own hands.
On the other hand, there are two types of Baby Showers. You can do a traditional baby shower with a registry in one or more stores or you can do a Diaper Shower.
When you do a Diaper Shower, you only ask for diapers in different sizes and brands.
Most people choose a Diaper Shower, because baby items are EXTREMELY expensive down here and people don’t feel comfortable to ask for expensive items.
So, I am going with the flow and I am hosting my own Diaper Shower. I don’t have too many people to invite, since most of my friends live in my hometown or in Bahia.
I am still trying to figure out if I will host it in a tea room or if I will host it in my own house.
I have a really specific idea of what I want as a baby shower in my own house, but I don’t want to feel overwhelmed with all the party planning.
I will have to decide no later than next week, if I want to do at our house, because I will have a lot of things to plan. I already have a specific board on Pinterest with shower ideas and I can assure you it will be all Pink and Brown ; )
What are your thoughts???
