Best baby showers?

Asked by Supergirl (1686points) February 23rd, 2008

What are the most unique/fun themes you have experienced at a baby shower? I don’t want to throw the typical baby shower for my friend, she isn’t really into the game thing——what other activities could we do? Along those lines—we were asked to bring our favorite children’s book to our friend’s baby shower last year, so I don’t want to do the same thing. But something cute like that!

This year’s thing is to buy a bunch of onesies and fabric markers (and/or other craft items) and have everyone design a onesie (sp?) for the baby. We had a jack and jill shower (the guys played poker), but the dad got to judge the designs and pick the top three. The lucky designers got little door prizes like Starbucks gift cards, etc. It went over pretty well with the exception of one or two ladies who freaked at having to be creative (you can add a hint of a warning in the invite).

I recommend getting cardboard forms to place inside the onesies. It keeps the thing in place while you draw on it. Hobby Lobby has them for regular t-shirts (or you can just get scrap cardboard). We traced a form for the size of the onesie, cut them out, and slipped the onesies on them prior to the shower. Also, most fabric markers or whatever require ironing to make them permanent. FYI.

My friend had a fun game at her baby shower. Everyone was given a necklace of plastic beads to wear when they arrived and was told the rules: do not say the word “baby.” If someone caught you saying the word “baby” in conversation, they got to take your beads and wear them. If someone had multiple necklaces (from taking other people’s) and said the word “baby,” they had to give them all up at once. The person with the most necklaces at the end of the shower won a small gift. It was hilarious and challenging, even though I lost right away!
