1. Who host?

It is absolutely fine for expecting parents to host their own baby shower! And that is why we are here to help. You can have a close friend or family member to help out too even when they live far away. I mean that is the whole point of a virtual baby shower right? Everything can be coordinated via text/ email/ social media!

Virtual Baby Shower Platforms

2. Choose an online “venue”

Every party has it’s tricky part – For a physical in-person baby shower, food would be the trickest portion, and for a virtual baby shower it would be video conferencing! Do not be intimidated by this. We have listed and broken down each platform and all you need to do is a simple practice!

Facetime – up to 32 friends at once / with any Apple products (Phone/ Laptop)
Zoom – up to 100 friends at once / free up to 40minutes
Google Hangouts – up to 25 friends at once / Gmail account needed
Facebook Messenger – up to 50 friends at once / only 6 people are visible at a time
Skype – up to 50 friends at once / up to 4 hours

Virtual Baby Shower Invitation

3. Send out the invitations

Where to meet and when to meet, that is the question. Set a date and time and get everyone grooving! To add on some spice to the party, you can even set a theme to it.

  • Wear a specific colour clothing
  • Don a hat party
  • Bring your own food (cookies etc) for the virtual party

You can view some of the free templates we have here or hop on to Canva and create using any template! Just type in Baby Shower Invitation!


4. Decorate the space

Everything is boring without decorations! Do you want your party to look like a conference call meeting? Just because it is virtual does not mean it should be anything less. These decorations can stay up for days and this could be a mood lifter during times like this. Make it big, make it happy!
