OK, so I'm co-hosting a shower for my friend who just found out she's having a girl. I know that she can't stand the color pink and is completely avoiding pink for the nursery. While I know she will be thankful for any gifts, I am sure deep down that she would prefer colors other than pink. Is it weird if I do an anti pink theme shower? I was thinking of saying something on the invites like:
Girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice,
but who needs to think that the answer is pink?
_______________'s Anti Pink Shower (or ____'s Pink-Free Affair)
Is this rude? It it cheesey? Should I just let people get what they want to get and have my friend suck it up? If you do like it (or don't mind it), do you have any other suggestions for the poem portion?
ETA: Another issue I have is for the guests. I don't know about everyone else, but when I get an invite that says something like "bring diapers for a raffle" or "bring a book for the baby's library" I sometimes forget about that by the time the shower rolls around. I'm thinking people may buy pink stuff and feel embarrassed at her shower when they realize/remember there's no pink.
