Baby Shower Host
The baby shower host will usually be a relative of the mother-to-be or the grandmother, cousins or friends. Many times more than one host will give the shower to defray costs and responsibilities.
Are you, nervous how to throw a baby shower? We created a baby shower checklist of helpful tips, ideas, thing to not forget and the basics on throwing the most memorable baby shower for that special someone in your life!Traditionally a baby shower program should be held 2 months before the mom-to-be's due date. So you, baby shower host, start planning 3 months before the due date to be ready on time .
