Baby Shower Ideas

July 6, 2006

My mother has just informed me that she, my twin aunts, and my grandma will be hauling themselves over 400 miles to throw me a family baby shower.  Yay!
So she asked me what I wanted to do.  She knows I don’t really like playing games like how many songs have the word “baby” in the title, or Bingo using diaper pins.  The trouble is, just about every baby shower I’ve ever been to does the same thing!  

For my bridal shower, we went to a paint-your-own china place & then ate Chinese, which was awesome.  I don’t think that will play with the older female relative crowd though.  I wouldn’t mind everyone just talking & eating, & then having some gift opening, but my mom thinks that’s not enough.  Anyone have any ideas for fun, interesting, non-cutesy yet grandma-appropriate activities for a baby shower?  Thanks!
