I am knocked up for the first time, and my friends are all asking when they can throw me a baby shower. The thing is, I’m excited about my growing foetus, but I really, really hate baby showers. I don’t want people to have to buy me things or play ridiculous games. I know we could bend the rules and have a gender-mix and alcohol but I’d really rather skip it altogether.
So… do you have any magical alternatives to a baby shower that would allow my friends to celebrate, but wouldn’t have the term “baby shower” in the title? -Kate

Invite people over to drink beer out of baby bottles:
Have a Monster Mash:
Throw a bohemian style pool party:
Invite people over to enjoy a Uteriñata
What are the ways you threw an alternative baby shower?
Comments on Are there any magical alternatives to a baby showers?
Lots of great ideas here. I would like to incorporate hand-me-downs or gently used gifts into our future “baby warming” or shower. I have heard people call these “green showers”. We have a very small house and won’t have room for much baby furniture, so I love the ideas of asking people to bring meals or books.
