I'm trying to plan a babyshower for my best friend and I've never done it before! Anyone have suggestions for me? I'm just fine with buying gifts and knowing what a new mother needs for the baby, but I really dont know what to do for games/activities, or anything else "traditional"
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

first pick a location to have the party-- the location will key in what type of food u will need to prepare for-- if u r having it at a resturant - u will ahve to buy their food--- and that can get very spendy... if u are hosting it at ur house- u can do veggie trays and fruit trays and appetizer type foods.
find out what kind of cake she likes-- that way either u will make the cake or order the ideal cake.

games-- baby bingo--
each guest gets a blank bingo card- they write down a baby item in each square they think the mother to be will get and when it comes present time u take our the cards and cross it off and see who gets bingo first.

ribbon game- each guest gets a ribbon the length they think will match the mother to be- baby bump. the one who guess corectly gets a prize.

the baby pin game-- at the beginging of the baby shower each guest recives a little clothes pin. if u say "aw thats cute' or "baby" u loose ur clothes pin-the person who calls them out on it gets their pin- at the end of the baby shower the guests with the most clothes pins wins..

dirty diaper game-- there is a post that explains that game...

invites-- make sure u get the registry info in the invite--helps the guest get gifts.

prizes--- candles,candies, photoframes r good--dollar tree is a great place to get things for goodie bags.
