A fun idea is to have families come to the baby shower as well as couples and have a cookout or what we call Baby-Que. Play baby shower games such as “name the family member” (where you ask questions that no-one may know about the mommy-to-be and daddy to be and their families) to see if someone knows who the question is about (i.e., Who was in a rock band in college, Who graduated with honors, who wanted to be an astronaut). Cook up some hot dogs and hamburgers while listening to your favorite tunes. This is a less formal baby shower but lots of fun for everyone (and no baby sitter is needed if you have little ones). Thanks to Melanie for this great baby shower planning idea!
We played the “Name The Family Member” baby shower game at the last shower I was at… LOVE the idea of the Baby-Que too!
