Homemade Valentine party invitations are not only most inexpensive but have a personal touch to the baby shower too.
Valentine is all about love, so you can choose this Bear Love invitation.
You can send a plain invitation card with just the information about the baby shower to your guests and ask them to decorate their invitation cards to mark their entry in the Shower. Then, as they enter the party, their invitation will be attached to the notice board and the best decorated invitation may be given a prize.

When decorating for this coed shower, think pink. Use pink plates, napkins, streamers and plastic utensils.
Pink Baby Shower Centerpieces
You can use a pink baby elephant diaper cake as the centerpiece.
If you want a lovely centerpiece that adds vibrant, romatic color to your table, roses in orange, red and pink colors are the best choices. And it's a low arrangement so you'll still be able to gaze lovingly into your date's eyes.
Or mass together roses into a centerpiece, and give them out as Valentines when guests arrive.
Also, use red, too. Place red and pink candles all over your house for the shower as well, create a loving, warm environment for your baby shower.
HERSHEY's KISSES Centerpiece: You can use HERSHEY's KISSES as your sparkle to the party setting. For example, sprinkle your tables with handfuls of HERSHEY'S KISSES and HUGS Brand Chocolates. And with so many colorful foils, you can also fill small dishes with HERSHEY'S chocolates and make a perfectly sweet and shimmery centerpiece.
Make a heart-shaped wreath with red flowers for the door to welcome your guests. You can also buy packages of extra large heart-shaped balloons, in pink colors which you can fill with helium and lined the walkway up to the door. And make a valentine balloon archway for the guests to walk beneath, but dont' get around to it.
Another valentine party idea for coed shower is hanging pink baby items and hear shaped paper garland along the walls around the room. And get enough Mylar red heart balloons and tie them here and there around the rooms.
Then spice up your shower location with red or pink roses, or gerber daisies.
Baby 4-1-1 (Submitted by Daphne Hennesey from Oklahoma City)
Baby 4-1-1 is a baby trivia game that is fun and educational. The baby shower game is played similar to the game show Jeopardy where the players choose a category and the question is asked to the group.
The first to respond with the correct answer wins Baby Bucks in the amount that is assigned to that question. The player with the most money at the end wins. All the questions are about labor, delivery and taking care of a newborn. It is all information the expecting parents need to know prior to their baby arriving.
Things like "How much will my baby eat in a day?" "How often should I change the diaper?" "When should I head to the hospital?" You can play it at the baby shower or give it as a gift to the expecting couple so that they can play it. They can play it with their parents and friends to see how much they remember about taking care of a newborn.
It is an excellent coed shower game. The guys really get excited when they actually know an answer!
