Need baby shower ideas!

So my sister in law is having her first baby October 1st and I have decided to throw her a baby shower! She is having a girl!!! But.... I need ideas on invitation wording, games, foods to serve, etc... we are having it on a saturday around noon.... I wanted to have a contest where anyone who brings diapers or wipes gets entered to win something cool... that way she will have a stock pile of diapers!
Any ideas that you have to offer are MUCH appreciated!!!!
Thanks in advance!

  • My friend had it set up that for every bag of diaper and wipe combo you bring you will be put in a drawing for $50 cash and every outfit you bring you are put in a drawing for a coach purse you might not be able to do the coach purse or $50 but it can give you an idea.
    Games I have played are the match the baby animal name to its mommy
    baby item word search, one thats my favorat was take small bottles and freeze them in ice and you have to get them out using only your body heat, take and place a bunch of baby items on a tray and let people look at it for lie 2 mins and give them a piece of paper and they have to write down as many items they can remember the one with the most wins, Two people hold a clothesline, while each attendee takes a turn hanging up baby clothes. The trick is that they have to hang the clothes while holding the baby and talking on a cordless phone! The one who can hang the most clothes in one minute

  • Match the famous moms name to their child's name, you could get a bunch of onesies and some puff paint and let the people decorate then you know how baby's are they go through a ton of clothes everyday .
