Baby Showers

cringe-worthy facebook shower invite

One of my facebook friends is throwing her own baby shower with her DH (it's co-ed).  The invite is via facebook and everyone and anyone is welcome to come.  

They will provide a keg and food, but you can BYOB if you want.  You also have to bring diapers to get a glass for the keg "while it lasts".  

You need to bring your own lawn chairs so there will be enough seating.  Also, "Anyone else who would like to bring a gift is more than welcome, gifts can be wrapped or unwrapped."

The minute I saw this I cringed a bit and I thought of this board.  I'm assuming she didn't run this idea by you guys first, ha.

  • Well if you're going do it wrong, you might as well go all-out tacky. Yuk.

  • Super classy. I love the bring diapers for the glasses thing.

    Yes, I especially liked the "while it lasts" part.  Although, I'm sure the diapers will still be "welcome" even after the keg runs out. 

  • oh, I won't be bringing diapers.  I don't need a glass; I will just stick to keg stands!

  • That's a very expensive keg cup.  Whatever happened to 5 bucks at college...or just free for girls, lol.
  • I'm almost speechless.  My favorite part:

    "Anyone else who would like to bring a gift is more than welcome, gifts can be wrapped or unwrapped."

  • I really hope that all the people who think diaper raffles--or any party that requires a diaper for admission, booze, etc--, unwrapped gifts, hosting your own shower, etc etc are totally fine (because hey! If it makes you happy, why not?!?!) read this post.  
  • So in theory, you could take your own beverage and show up otherwise empty handed. Sounds like a great party to me. *eyeroll*

    I'm a dirty lurker on this board but just HAD to respond to this. This made me laugh so hard iced tea almost came out of my nose! Thanks for the laugh!

    OP, I seriously hope you're not attending. Klassy.

    I was thinking that, too. What are we, in college again? Freaking weirdos. Grow up! I also can't stand the FB shower invitations. Someone posted about that last week. Invite as many "friends" as you can to increase the likelyhood that you will get more gifts. SMH

  • LOL @ "gift can be wrapped or  unwrapped"   WTF

    The trick is: They only have two glasses for the keg!  Bazinga!  Loads of free diapers!  LOL

  • Yup, just threw up in my mouth...

  • I am dying right now. I want to attend just to see the look on the parents to be when the condoms are handed to them. So hilarious. Makes think about all the inappropriate books I can bring to a shower that requests them instead of cards.
