    The amount of the hospital bills.... 100 grand

    the first time you see your loved one.... tear jerkers

    No idea on invites :(

     

     

  • When is the shower?  I try to plan menus based upon what's seasonal, since the flavors will be at their peak. 

    As far as invitations go, here are a few ideas.  Again, a lot of this will be determined by when you're trying to have it.

  • here is a baby shower i did a few weeks ago.
    menu items, diaper cake instructions, and even a game <gasp> are all listed.

    different theme and colors but hopefully it will get your creative juices flowing.

    Oh, I saw this post and thought it was adorable.  Going with "pickles & ice cream", check out these cookies from Bake @ 350:  http://bakeat350.blogspot.com/2009/11/mollys-baby-shower-part-2.html

  • Thanks for all the ideas.... Im def tossing out the games!
  • Personally, I love games but maybe that's just me.  I did a shower today and kept the games to just 2 and 1 activity of decorating onsies.  We did a baby word scramble and guess the amount of candy in a jar. 
    The candy is one I like to do b/c the candy is another decoration and a prize.  But i like the timer while opening gifts. 
  • I would keep a game that can run the entire length of the shower. The clothespin one would work. Everyone starts with X number, every time someone says "baby" the first person to catch them gets to take a clothespin. The person with the most at the end of the shower gets a prize. Short games are boring. Just my 2 cents.
