I'm hosting my sister's shower in a week and a half, and I am stumped as to whether or not there should be favors. I've only been to a few baby showers, including my own, and some had favors (mine had a recipe card and some trail mix) and some did not. Are they necessary? If so, anyone have any ideas for something inexpensive that won't get thrown away the instant they get home?
We're doing the shower pretty casual, at my mom's house with appetizers and dessert, about 25 guests total. The theme is Classic Pooh. It needs to be something not too time-consuming, I have a 9 week old and am traveling cross-country, so I'll only have a couple of days to prep.
Re: Baby Shower Favors?
Food is the best so we ordered the bulk package of 320 Lindt chocolates ($89). If we have 40 guests (we're doing a co-ed shower) they'll each get 8. Hope this helps.
