Welcome to IjoBABY’s new Friday column, ButterFridays! ButterFridays is a weekly column dedicated to IjoBABY topics. The idea to call our column ButterFridays was evoked by our colorful IjoBABY logo & the day of Friday.

Baby Showers are not what they used to. With the boom of social media and gorgeous visual displays roaming around the Internet, our social gatherings have become an amazing outlet for creativity and innovation. Baby Showers are now as cute as they've ever been! This ButterFriday let's celebrate five GRAND trends that are bound to make any baby shower a truly unforgettable IJORERE.
1. Diaper Dinners
Many modern mothers prefer to shop for their own nursery items, or are celebrating baby number three and don't really need another changing table. This is a perfect occasion for a Diaper Dinner. Guests are asked to bring diapers of different sizes as the only gift. We all know if there's one thing you can't have many it's diapers! You can also bring a modern Diaper Cake as a trendy gift.

2. Mini Shower/Sprinkle
Many modern and busy moms can't have the luxury of spending an entire morning or afternoon for a celebration. Sprinkles are perfect for the hectic life of a working mom. This shorter and simple showers are still gorgeous and very emotional; the idea is to not compromise quality, but keep the celebration at a speedy pace.

3. Spa Shower
Being pregnant is no easy thing! Along with the joy of expecting a little one, come the cramps, back aches, exhaustion… should we go on? A Spa Shower is all about spoiling Mom to be. Think of it as the pregnant version of a girls day out; I can speak from experience when I say, many moms will indeed prefer a day of relaxation than a tiresome party they might have to clean up afterwards.
4. Baby Introduction/Sip and See
Many couples are shying away from the traditional "girls-only-mom's-pregnant" Shower. A Baby Introduction -or Seep and See, due to Mom now being able to drink- is a party AFTER the little munchkin has arrived; the baby is introduced to friends and family and the boys are definitely invited to participate.

5. Gender Reveal
A Gender Reveal party is probably one of the most popular trends of the last couple of years. In this type of party, only the baker knows the babies sex -the sonogram is sent directly to him in a sealed envelope- and both the parents and guests discover together the sex when cutting the cake; which has either blue or pink filling inside. This is a very thrilling and exciting type of party and is great for parents that want to make sure they include their family and friends in the great surprise of discovering the babies gender.
