This gathering got me thinking -- I haven't had the opportunity to plan a baby shower yet, but I would love to. A baby shower is a great excuse to go overboard on color, but I would pick one color and go with it. Too many colors and you are going to look like a crayon box!
Let's just pretend we have a baby boy on the way.....below is what I would want to do! (if you are planning to use these ideas at your next shower, you might need a few hostesses...it ain't cheap).
Now, the tent and a million tables are not necessary, but all the blue linens really give it a nice touch.
If you do decide on a seated lunch, don't rush it. You need to have a mingling period before lunch begins. Plan your baby shower for 11:00 a.m., offer a fun punch as people arrive and possibly have an activity going on. Do not get me wrong - I am not a fan of the silly baby shower games...pin the tail on the diaper, steal the pacifier from whoever says the word baby.... If you do not know about the games I am talking about, consider yourself lucky!
