My MIL is planning my baby shower for early/middle Jan because I am due toward the middle of Feb. She's already determined that we will have it at her house, which is wonderful because I've always really liked how her house is built. It's not incredibly small, but also by no means a large house, so my guest list will not be very big(perhaps about 10-15 at most?)
She's beginning to ask my ideas on themes and what I'd like to go on during the shower. She's one of those people who is always very concerned with making things how you'd like it if she's planning a party or something. However, I'm 22 and this is my very first LO, and I have only been to one baby shower, so I haven't the slightest idea what generally goes on.
My LO is a girl, and her nursery theme is pastel colours, but I guess you could say is classic pooh as her cribset is a pink pooh bear set.I've read that generally the party themes reflect the nursery theme. Is this the general "norm" for a shower theme? We're on a bit of a budget after splurging on nursery stuff for her recently(who doesn't!?)
Also, are games expected? I've found that I'd rather just socialize with the people who have actually taken time out of their day to come celebrate my baby versus play some silly, possibly awkward games.
Any ideas, suggestions or input would be loved!
