    I am planning a baby shower and looking for some cute ideas for games and gifts. this forum has such awesome DIY and etsy ideas.

    i did see cute tea bag "sleeves" on etsy that says a "baby is brewing". but was not sure if this was cute or cheesy! HA!

      I heard of an awesome on for the GUYS recently!!
      A diaper party...the guys all get together and have beer and celebrate while the girls are up with the baby and doing their thing..or even totally separate days....and the guys have to each bring a bag of diapers! one girl didn't have to buy diapers for the first 9 months! imagine how much of a savings that would be! apparently Hooters organizes the parties and on each invite it tells what size of diapers to bring, so you get an assortment!
      I want my hubby to have a baby party but i can't really throw it for him! hahahah

            I was just at a baby shower with a cute different game... It was The Price is Right and they had a table with diapers, baby wipes, dreft laundry detergent, and other such baby items. Everyone (all of the guests) had to guess the prices of the items and submit a total price. The person who came closest to the actual price, won a prize. And...the mom-to-be got all of the baby stuff!! I thought it was a good idea for a game!

              I'm in the same situation right now. I'm helping throw my friend's baby shower next weekend. Her registry is pretty much bought up already so I decided to order her a diaper cake. I just bought this cake from diapercakesmall.com:

              http://diapercakesma...._Ocean_MED.jpg

              It coordinates with the bedding she registered for. I think I might add the baby record book she registered for to complete the gift. A friend of mine forwarded me this site with baby games: Baby Shower Games from Baby shower 101

              I'm not in charge of favors so I don't have any good ideas to share. I hope this helps!

                I forgot to mention, if you're crafty the diaper cakes are supposed to be simple to make. There are even tutorials posted online to help you make them!

                      One thing that I did for my baby shower was put together a really nice gift basket that was worth around $150 worth of stuff. It had wine and cheese and movies and games and I raffled it off. The price of one raffle ticket was a Jumbo pack of diapers (which is like the smallest size), and people could get as many tickets they wanted. I had so many diapers and wipes, I was stocked for a good 4 to 5 months, it was worth the money I spent on the basket. Congratulations on your baby!
