Help I need baby shower advice!

Melissa - posted on 05/16/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




I need some suggestions. My sister is having her first baby in July. I volunteered to throw her a shower and I am thrilled to be doing it but I am also a little freaked out. I have four children but I never had a shower. In fact I have only ever been to 1 and that was a co-ed unconventional shower.

Soooo I am not sure what to do, also it is going to be a small shower because we don't have much family and she just moved here so she doesn't have many friends. I think it's going to be less than 10 people. So I need games that will work with only a few people.

It is my understanding that as the hostess I should just do everything and not ask her about stuff. Is that right or should I have her pick out things like invitations and decorations, cupcake flavors...?

Thanks in advance for advice/eperience!

There is a game called guess the measurement around. You measure her belly before and you have everyone write it on a paper you go around and whoever is the closest or died on gets the price. Pin in a hay stack is another game you put babby (sorry spelling I am not sure how to spell it) pins into a bowl of rice and blind fold everyone and see who ever gets the post pins. Those are the first two that I came up with without looking stuff up.
Have you pick out the colors that is about all because it is support to be somewhat of a surpirce for her as the mother to be. If you feel like you want to include her then have her fill out invites and pick them out pick the directions which should have a theme to them. She can also pick out the thank you notes/cards for after the party is over.Party favors NO CAKE TOPPERS you pick that out.
I hope that this helps you if not write me at email at with the subject circle of moms and I will reply with more thoughts and ideas for you.
