Here's a party idea for the woman who is excited about becoming a grandma for the first time -- a Grandma-to-be shower!
Throw a fun party for your favorite grandma-to-be and ask friends and relatives to bring an item that grandma is sure to need when she's caring for her new grandchild. Grandma will need bibs, a stroller, a car seat if she plans to drive her grandchildren around, a high chair, portable crib, baby blankets, formula and plenty of diapers.
Use theme party decorations to spruce up the event. Perhaps combine baby shower decorations with "over the hill" decorations for a fun touch. Or just stick to traditional balloons and streamers. Have fellow grandmas offer words of wisdom to the new grandma in town.
These type of parties can be as elaborate or as simple as you wish. Perhaps you only have grandma's closest friends over and they only bring a small item to give such as diapers or bibs. Decide on your budget and goals before you plan.
