We are having a Minnie Mouse themed, family style shower. It will be at the clubhouse at my grandparents retirement community (it's nice and FREE!!).
We are looking at sending about 30 invites out. About 5 of those are out-of-towners that I highly doubt will make it but, if 15 of the 30 RSVP as coming even that is looking at about 35-40 people since it's family style. I don't mind doing it this way. But, I need some good ideas for entertainment, food, etc.
I am looking at setting up a table for the kids to do Arts and Crafts at. Having coloring pages, and other art stuff. I'm gonna theme it to our baby shower and also have them make a Welcome sign for baby. :)
Then, for the guys, I am looking at doing a baby hold 'em table. Basically, it's like Texas Hold 'Em but the "buy in" is baby food or bottles or something small. We have a poker set so this works good. I'm also gonna get candy cigars for this table as well.
I am looking at doing a candy table where people can fill up there favor (a wine glass w/ pink and black polka dots w/ the shower date on it) w/ candy. There is one glass per family so DH and I are gonna get little goody boxes for the kids with different baby themed things and the men get a cigar saying "Smoke when Brooke enters the world".
I have a few family members who will make a few food items but I'm wondering if we just to hor'dervs, will that be ok? We're doing the shower from 2-4ish so, it'll be after lunch. I don't really wanna spend a lot on food. I'm also making the cake myself so, that's no big deal.
Do u ladies have any suggestions as to:
Games ideas (that everyone can play)?
Any general ideas?
