What is a baby shower?
A baby shower is where friends and family bring gifts and celebrate the pregnancy with the parents-to-be.
Baby showers stem back to ancient Egyptians and Greeks, where new mums would honour the birth goddess with gifts.The Middle Ages saw godparents give gifts such as silver and the Victorians hosted tea parties with games after the birth, as pregnancy was considered a taboo subject.
Baby Showers are all the rage. And thankfully, it’s something we at Cafe Marseille do quite a bit. We love them! How girlie can you be? Quite frankly, it’s another excuse to get the girls together for some sweet treats, play some baby games and celebrate a soon to be born bundle of joy. But at the same time, be all about the mum to be.
Baby showers are usually held 4-6 weeks before the due date.
And if you ask us why have a Baby Shower? The answer is simple
