Baby showers are organized to shower the mom-to-be with love and lots of baby gear and the moms sure do love all the attention. Some moms share with everyone the secret of the gender of her yet-to-be born child through the theme of the shower. Some moms share that early and the organizer of the party chooses the theme according to the gender of the baby.
