Here is a site that has lots of games, we played alot of them at my showers. the "wright family game" is hilarious!! http://www.baby-shower.com/d-games/index.html

At my shower as far as food went we did finger foods, like little sandwiches, we had a fruit tray with some cream cheese dip that my mom makes, a veggie tray, and dips and chips.

Well for my sisters that I threw I made bracelets for party favors and they were little pink and white beaded ones and I hung them on this little tree that sat at the front door for them to pick one.  And we had a bowl of punch and I floated mini rubber ducks in it with pink ribbons on just for decoration. 

We played one game that everyone was passed around some ribbon and to cut how much they thought would go around my sisters belly.  Then they won a really cute hand painted frame that I bought and painted at the dollar store.  I forget the food I had tho sorry.  Hope these ideas helped.

 food: bbq smokies, and i would do lunch meat, ham & turkey with buns and all the fixins......crackers, meat, cheese. snacks...chips, etc.

cake or cupcakes....yum! :) all i can think of is food right now cuz im so hungry! haha

games, price is right (baby shower kind) is WAY fun!!!

um baby and mommy animals

lots of ppl like guessing tummy size with ribbon, yarn etc.

the poopie diaper thing, just a small piece of felt with mustard and stuff in it, only a few ppl win

a fun one i had been to was also they bought small plastic babies... (like finger nail size, prob craft section) put them in ice cubes and put them in cups with what ppl wanted 2 drink and whos ever baby "broke the water" (aka got out of the ice cube) won...

just some ideas....deceration id says just go to ur dollar store and get ballons, streamers, etc

 at my friends shower  we play  what was mommie  wearing.

she was walking around talking with everyone than she was called out of the room than   we said ok game time,  what was she wearing, the person  with the most wins,   and that can also inclued  anything  that is on her body....   people  had fun with that..

the tray game....        take a tray  wrap with a baby blanket,  place many baby items on the tray,     walk around with the tray  and let everyone look at  it for about 20 seconds,     than take the tray outta the room,     have everyone write down  in one minute what was on the tray.    who ever gets the most wins,       { its fun to see how many people  make things up}

hope this helps ya   a lil bit.....

ne 12 oz. package softened cream cheese
One 13 oz. frozen Skyline Chili thawed OR one 15 oz. can of Skyline Chili

I just hosted one on the twelfth...so it's still fresh in my mind

It was held in a restaurant with a buffet so all I had to provide was cake and punch :)

The theme was frogs and duckies (It's a baby boy)

Games:

Word unscramble

Guess the nursey rhyme

^Were both on paper

Dont say "baby"! We put charms on ribbon, each guest was given a charm at the beginning of the shower... and when someone heard someone else say the word "baby" they could take their charm. The person with the most charms at the end of the shower won a prize

Toilet Paper-How big is mommy's belly? Each person tore off the number of squares that would fit perfectly around mom's belly..

 

Give me a few minutes and I'll post some pictures!
