Example Rubber Duck Baby Shower Schedule

While you don’t have to have a schedule for a baby shower, we like to have a general idea of what will happen throughout the day.

Here’s a sample schedule for a fall baby shower:

1-1:30 pm – Guests arrive and mingle

1:30 – 2 pm – Shower Hostess says a few words and outlines what to expect with when you’re planning food, games and gift opening. This would also be a good time to do a warm up game, like our favorite baby scavenger hunt. This game can help other guests meet each other. If you’re doing a diaper raffle, we recommend introducing it at this time so guests have time to drop off their gift and fill out any raffle entries.

2 – 3 pm – Food and drinks are available

3-4 pm – Baby shower gift opening and diaper raffle. We like to sprinkle raffle prizes in between gifts to keep guests engaged and entertained.

If you’re having part of your shower virtual, this is a great time to have guests log into Zoom!

4-5 pm – Final games and goodbyes
