Food & Cake Ideas
A cake that is shaped like a football or baseball can be ordered for the mother-to-be, or perhaps you may want to try making one!? There is a video below on how to make one, give it a try! The candy buffet table can be set up featuring small cupcakes and cakepops that are decorated to look like footballs, baseballs, soccer balls, and baseballs. Small foods or finger foods that can be eaten with the hands are always popular because it means less mess for the guests and easy clean up for the hostess. Some hassle free, simple food includes mini margherita pizza (tomato sauce, cheese, basil topping), cocktail sausages, and Puff pastry with cheese, tomato and vegetables. Grocery stores can offer trays for sale like vegetable trays with dip, sandwich trays, and trays with things like meat and cheese, which are all the most popular baby shower foods.

The Games to Play
There are a few games that the hostess can set up for the party guests and mother-to-be to play. One game is called the Guessing Game. With this game, sports themed items are placed in a paper bag, like small balls and mini helmets. The idea of the game is for each guest to reach in with their eyes closed, and guess what they are feeling then write it down. Another game would be to take a basketball, and have each guest bounce the ball the number of times she thinks that the mom’s belly measures. You could say, each bounce will measure 5cm. After everyone has bounced the ball with their guess, the mom-to-be is measured, and the guest that is the closest wins a prize.
