In 2012, when Beyoncé and Jay-Z were expecting the birth of their daughter Blue Ivy, I threw a baby shower in her honor and invited my friends. I decorated the house with streamers and had the clip of Beyonce revealing her baby bump at the 2012 VMAs on a loop. It was a wonderful party.
I missed the opportunity to do that with the birth of North West in 2013. But now, with the due date of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s second child approaching in December, I can start planning. Kim may have already held her own baby shower in October, a Troop Beverly Hills themed party, but that doesn’t mean the rest of us lesser humans can’t celebrate a little. Below is a list of things you’ll need to throw a perfect baby shower for America’s family.
A cake! Depending on your budget, you could fly to Paris for some cheesecake or you could opt for a simple box of cake mix.
Guests! Invite your friends, like Cara Delevingne or Gigi Hadid. If they’re not available just ask your other BFFs and maybe that girl in your chemistry class.
A theme! You could go traditional and do the tired old “baby theme” or you could switch it up like Kim did. Some theme suggestions: “Money”, “Illuminati”, or “The Bound 2 music video.”
Games! What’s a good baby shower without games? Have everyone download the “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood” app onto their phone and play in silence for hours, maybe days.
I hope these suggestions help!
