 Throwing a lunchtime baby shower at work can be a fun and thoughtful way to celebrate a colleague's upcoming arrival. Here are some tips for throwing a short but sweet baby shower at work:

  1. Secure a spot to host and get permission and approval from the powers that be. A conference room or an outdoor spot like a covered eating area would be ideal.
  2. Choose a date and time such as during a lunch break or shortly after work hours. Keep in mind that the baby shower should be short to accommodate work schedules.
  3. Set a budget: Determine a budget that works for the size of the guest list and what you plan to provide at the baby shower.
  4. Let people know ahead of time when and where the celebration will be held and post a sign-up sheet for bringing food, treats, and drinks. It’s easier to ask people to bring a certain item than to leave it open. Choose simple and easy-to-serve finger foods such as mini sandwiches, fruit skewers, or cupcakes.
  5. Create a guest list of colleagues who work closely with the mom-to-be or who would like to celebrate with her. Consider whether to invite everyone in the office or only those in her department.
  6. Decorate the space: Ask the mom-to-be what theme she has chosen for the baby’s room, then use this as the theme for the baby shower. Decorate with balloons, streamers, or other simple decorations.
  7. Plan a short activity: Plan a quick and easy activity such as guessing the baby's gender, baby bingo, or a diaper raffle. Keep in mind that the activity should be short and not interfere with work schedules.
  8. Give a group gift: As a group, consider buying a small and meaningful gift that everyone can contribute to. For example, a group card or a basket of baby essentials such as a Bebe Gift Box
  9. Allow time for the mom-to-be to open gifts and make sure to take pictures to capture the memories.

Remember, the goal is to show your colleague that you care and are excited for their upcoming arrival.
