When it Rains, it Pours! How to Throw a Baby Shower that Doesn't Suck
I've been to a lot of baby showers in the past few years. A LOT. My own, 5 years ago, is a bit of a blur now and was actually my very first baby shower since I was the first of my friends to procreate. But since then my friend and relatives have been spawning like crazy. I have never been to a terrible baby shower, but one of my college friends called me a few weeks ago and vented about this truly awful baby shower she went to over the weekend. There was no food; the guests were all strangers and had nothing in common; and it took the mom-to-be 3 hours to open all her gifts, while the guests were stuck watching, not being fed and engaging in painfully awkward small talk. Plus, there was a woman there who insisted on telling every gruesome detail of all her birth stories. Not cool. So we came up with this list of ways to throw a fun shower that doesn't suck! - By Claire Goss
Don't Play Dumb Games
Skip the one where people have to sniff fake poop on diapers and the one where people guess how huge the pregnant woman has gotten. They have been done a million times. The former makes people cringe in a bad way and the latter makes the pregnant mom either feel her belly is not big enough or too big. Just skip it.
