i always thort a baby shower was when u celebrated the fact ur preggers and have a buffet type do at home and everyone buys u gifts (off a list uv previously made - abit like that of a wedding list).
it just saves u buying everything urself - its another american tradition that the UK has inherited.

Hi hun,i gave my sister a baby shower in febuary this year.I made sure there was food and drinks aplenty and i secretly wrote down all the things my sister needed or hadnt brought yet,as when people started rsvp'ing me they kept asking what she needed so i had a list of small things that wernt to expensive but generaly people just buy what they want.We made up our own games such as ...
The string game,i had a roll of string and each guest had to cut how ever much string they thought would fit around my sisters belly the guests whos string is the closest wins.
Then we had a baby changing race, borrow x2 dolls and x2 singlets x2nappys and x2grow suits who ever dresses the baby first wins.We just gave the winners boxes of choccys.
We then had a baby bottle filled with jelly beans and who ever guessed the amount won it.
My sister then unwrapped all of her prezzys infront of her guests while they had tea,coffee and cakes.
I hope this helps i did it all my self and it came out to well under $150(australian)and we had 50 guests. Scared (my mum and i made all the food)

My friend found some little tiny binkies (pacifier, I forget what you guys call them??) and put them around glass votive candle holders. You could put little blue candles in them for prizes.

I don't know about there, but in the States you can register at a store that has baby things and make a list of things you need, as people buy the items they are taken off the list, makes things very easy that way so that you don't get multiples of the same things.

Good luck with the planning hun, wish we could come and do the party for you!

Awwww, I bet it will turn out to be a really great day for you... When my friend had mine for me, I had only been in Rhode Island for about 2 years and had not made alot of good friends up here yet... My Best Friend, bless her, invited some of her friends that I didnt' even know yet (so that there would be more than 3 people there LOL) and then I became friends with them too LOL
