Welcome baby party!?

Ok, so i'm pregnant with my third baby...I had a shower for my first child, a girl, then my friends threw me one for my second child, a boy. so, now with my thrid, it's unnecessary for another baby shower. And in my opinion, it's tacky. Anywho, I am thinking of doing a "WELCOME BABY PARTY". Has anyone done one of these? What'd you do? i know I'm gonna wait til little Henry is 6 weeks old, cause he's due to arrive Dec. 3. What ya'll think?

I had my first one early, so the planned shower became a 'welcome home baby' event.

I don't see why you shouldn't have a welcome party for him so everyone gets to 'meet' him and share your joy.

And congrats!

Thanks! We are excited! I just don't know what to do at the welcome baby party :D with my first, my mom, who is in MI and I'm in GA, had a shower for me up there, video taped it and brought everything here....actually awesome. nobody came to the one i tried to throw myself here in GA. but that's besides the point. with my son, Joshua, my church threw me a shower, and we did games, and had good food ;p i just don't know what to do with Henry. LOL. Like, have a luncheon? just hang out? or do a cook out and have some adult beverages? ;) (hehehe)

I think all the above sounds great..you can maybe throw some games in too. I'm sure you can check out Pinterest for some ideas too. :)
