  • Angelica Panganiban and her soon-to-arrive first child with Gregg Homan recently got a mermaid baby shower from her talent management agency, Star Magic, and she's over the moon!

    The actress took to Instagram to share a few snaps taken from the event attended by her and her businessman beau's family members and close friends.

    She wrote in the caption, "Nangyari din sa buhay ko ang magkaron ng sariling baby shower. Napakasarap sa pakiramdam ang makasama ang mga pamilya, kaibigan at kapamilya na tunay na masaya at naka suporta sa pinaka mahalaga at pinaka pinangarap kong papel sa buhay ko. Napakadami namang nagmamahal samin."

    Guests included (L-R) Jon Martin Cruz, Edu Manzano, Nio Tria, Cherry Pie Picache, Deo Endrinal, Cory Vidanes, and Carlo Katigbak.

SALAMAT sa pagbuo nito. Sa lahat ng nagpunta at nagpa abot ng pagmamahal. At syempre sa lahaaaat lahat ng bumuo para maging posible ang araw na ito."

    Tips on organizing a baby shower

    If you have the energy and creativity, you can plan your own baby shower with some help here and there. This may even make you feel a little less anxious awaiting your due date. Here are a few baby shower ideas from first-time moms:

    Theme

    What you want is something fun and enjoyable for you and your guests. Think of your favorite color, animal, or mythical creature, like a mermaid. You can also check out the trending topics, shows, or bands. Maybe there's a specific object or event that's been influential in your pregnancy journey.

    Venue

    If your guest list is limited to a few relatives and friends, holding the event at home can be a practical and economical choice. But if you intend to invite more people, opting for a bigger and more accessible place can be more practical and economical.

    Decoration

    The best way to save money on decoration is to go DIY. If you have the time and you can create designs and layouts on your own, this won’t be a challenge. But if you are not confident with your DIY and styling skills and know someone who is, then don’t hesitate to tap that person for help.

    Of course, the invitation, souvenirs, table set-up, balloons, and buntings must be in line with your chosen theme. If all else fail, there’s always Divisoria, the mall, or online shops for these items.

    Food

    Unlike birthday parties, baby showers do not really require you to serve full course meal to your guests. Party trays and pica-pica or finger food like chips, chocolates, and candies will do as long as it’s more than enough to satisfy your guests’ hunger (and your cravings).

    Gift registry

    Whoever invented gift registry is a genius. Not only is it convenient and free, but it also gives the guests the idea of what you really need (read here for gender neutral gifts). There are a few online registries that you can sign up.
