1. Do plan ahead; get your invitations out as early as possible.

2. Do take time before the party to get organized so that it will run smoothly. Then You'll have time to enjoy it too.

3. Do consider including men.

4. Do have fun with festive decorations. Consider useful decorations and centerpieces that can be given to guest or guests of honor at the end of the party.

5. Do use your best table linens and silver if the party isn't too big. Save matching paper plate ensembles for larger parties when you just don't have time to wash linens and china.

6. Do present foods attractively; include festive garnishes.

7. Do know the diet restrictions of your group, especially those of the mother-to-be. if you plan to serve alcholic beverages, label them clearly.

8. Do serve foods that are easy to eat.

9. Don't expect people to balance a sit-down meal on their laps.

10. Do have one or two very organized people near the mother (or mother and father) to handle wrappings and to record the gifts received.,

11. Don't give all newborn or three-month size clothing; the baby will soon wear larger sizes.

12. Do include the mother and father when buying gifts-a personal gift fort the parents during this stressful time can give them a real lift.

13. Do keep the shower short and sweet.

14. Don't play games that are embarrassing or awkward for your guests.

15. Do include really useful prizes for guests.

16. Finally, DO have a good time.
