Essential guests at the pandemic baby shower
Write it down: security, gratitude and hope! These are the main guests for your event. This is not the time to crowd, especially because pregnant women need to take care of themselves, right?
Gratitude and hope go hand in hand. The arrival of a baby is a renewal in the family and we need to keep the faith that everything will get better and that we will soon be able to return to normality.
Even if it’s not the way you dreamed, be grateful for life. This is the greatest gift!

The chariot is an open-air event, but guests stay in their cars, greeting and delivering presents through the car window. This alternative to the traditional baby shower is perfect because it respects distance and hygiene care.
Usually, cars are decorated, family and friends make posters with phrases of affection and have a real party with the horn.
Another positive point of this baby shower in the pandemic is the economy, you don’t have to worry about spending on food and drink. After all, most people will be driving. However, if you like, a souvenir is welcome!

- Everyone must wear masks covering nose and mouth;
- Nobody can get out of the car;

The prize is set by the family and can be in cash or in products and services, such as a breakfast basket, cosmetic kit or a day of beauty at the salon.
To work, it must be well explained. Make an explanatory invitation with the raffle tea rules. Can’t miss:
