What Do Beers and Diapers Have In Common?

I know you are all familiar with baby showers, but have you heard of the new trend Mommies and Daddies to be are pickin up on? This trend can not only save you a ton of money but it will get Daddy to be involved in the baby prepping department too.  This is what we like to call a Diaper Party.

So what is a diaper party? A diaper party is an informal party for dad and his male friends and family. Rather than bringing gifts each guest is requested to bring a package of diapers. In return the host promises to provide alcohol and yummy food! Who can say no to that?! My husband's party was held in the evening at a local bar. This party not only served as a way to rack up diaper packages, but it was also a final hoorah for the husband before the baby gets here. We kept it simple with some pulled pork in the crockpot, some rolls, a few trays of baked ziti and a homemade cake.
 Beer + food, what more do guys need?

Simple to plan, and the picture below is what we came home with. 

Umm....score!!!! A good night with great people and a closet full of diapers...you would be silly not to do it!
P.S. If the weather cooperates why not through a BBQ at home? Some beers in the fridge and some burgers on the grill and call it a day. The best part is that these are guys we are talking about....no need to stalk pinterest for decor ideas because chances are, they won't even notice the decor =P Beer, food, done!
Have you been to or thrown a diaper party?



  1. It's funny you mention the BBQ at the end! My husband walked into the room mid post and that's how I sold it to him. Thanks for the awesome idea!

  2. That is such a great idea and gets the guys in on the prepping. Promising food and beer is a great way to get people to come!

  3. Lately all the showers I am invited to ask that I bring diapers along with a gift. SO both. Diapers aren't cheap!

  4. Holy diapers!! :)

    The last few baby showers/bridal showers I have been to have been co-ed. I suppose that means the bridal shower isn't really a 'bridal' shower. Either way, it is a lot of fun that way.
