Help! I am organising a baby shower for an old friend. As always with these things I agreed to planning the party a long time ago and it suddenly seems to be upon me and I am not totally sure what I’m doing!
This is only my second close friend to have a baby so I don’t have much experience of attending showers. My first one was in a bar which I’m not sure is normal! Otherwise all my experiences are from American TV shows!
I have obviously sent out invitations and have lots of rsvps so I know we will be a large group and there should be lots of presents coming.
Catering wise I am doing cups of tea and think we should do some champagne cocktails and mocktails.
I have ordered some very sex and the city mini cup cakes and lots of old fashioned penny sweet milk bottles for decorations.
I am thinking we also need proper English finger sandwiches and scones.
I am a bit lost about games. It’s been suggested to me that we should be playing lots of games- is that right?
I am also wondering what music might be suitable? I am thinking lots of calming Madeleine Peyroux type stuff. I’m not sure what to play for pass the parcel though!
Also do we need a special baby shower cake?
All suggestions very gratefully received!
