Do baby showers still have a place in 2018? And do you have to play silly games and open gifts? Baby showers have come a long way and the days of decorating the living room with baby bottles, sippy cups and blankies have given way to elaborate parties that are elegant and sophisticated. The new baby shower is held in a venue, beautifully decorated with modern colors and themes and plated meals being served instead of finger foods. And gifts range from the cute and fuzzy stuffies, to high tech gadgets including baby monitors and baby fetal dopplers so the parents to be can listen to their baby’s heartbeat before it is even born.

There are also some new trends in the way baby showers are decorated with themes that incorporate mother as well as baby and give a more modern take on the antiquated baby shower ideas of old.
