Just had a wonderful baby shower for our daughter who is expecting her first child. We had a nice variety of people - friends her age, my friends, friends from work...
She asked for no party games; I respected that. We had fun visiting, eating and ooohing & aahing over baby items. :p
When guests arrived, I had them sign a baby towel to give mom as a memento. I also had the guests address an envelope and put it in a bag. Mom drew out 2 envelopes and the winners got Starbucks cards. The envelopes will be used for thank you cards. (I hope) They received 2 car seats (one from us), a stroller from the other grandparents and lots of clothes.
I posted Friday night about favors. I ended up getting sheer blue bags and putting a small rubber duck and some baby footprint candy in each. Mom took home the larger rubber duck that was on the cake.
It was so much fun. :thumbsup:
