  • i threw one for my cousin a few weeks ago, we did it after a family dinner so it was pretty short. we just did a few decorations with colors of the nursery. i hate the stupid guess how big the belly is games so we didnt do anything like that. she was naming her baby lauren so we passed out papers that said "what i wish for LAUREN" and people filled in stuff for each letter of her name. it was fun and something for mommy to take home and put in the baby book. at mine they did baby advice cards, some of them were funny some were serious, i still have them in kaydens baby book.

  • The diaper tree is one of the best idea EVER! have everyone bring a package of diapers (various sizes can be assigned) along with their gift. Every person who brings a package gets entered into a drawing.

    A fun game is to pass out pen and paper to everyone with a letter at the top of it. Set a timer and have the person write out as many names that begin with their designated letter. who ever comes up with the most number of names wins a prize... Think scattergories

  • Finger foods for sure, maybe a bigger dish, (meatballs, wings,veggies and dip), One of my games was to spell baby's full name and find as many words as you can in that name, also, a wod scramble of various baby/motherhood terms, time it for 3 minutes.
