I agree with several of the suggestions above. Keep away from a baby theme. It’s really passe.
[rant] I personally hate sitting through another dull game of themed baby stuff. To me ( and this is just my HUMBLE -ergo up my ass- opinion) guessing the circumference of the mommy to be is tasteless. What if she never loses that weight or is really self conscious about that. YOU WOULD NEVER ASK A NON PREGNANT woman her waist size, would you? [/rant]
Games you could play: It sounds like it is a age-varied crowd. How about:
1)Charades.(this is an all time fav. at our parties.)
2)There isn’t much time, but maybe a list of
Name the celebrity babies. Tallulah to Demi Moore… those who can correctly name the most star kids to their parents win something.
3)Instead of games, do some kind of ice breaker game ( I’m all for something like " Without any pants on" idea). Then, for prizes without competition, at the end of the party “raffle” it (whatever the prizes are) to
" Who has a birthday closest to the baby’s due date?" Who has a child who’s birthdate is closest to the baby’s due date?" Who had the shortest labor here" etc…
( Oh, and make it a rule that no one tells labor horror stories. Gawd, talk about mental terrorism for the poor mommy to be.)
Another funny one that I read, of all places, was an Erma Bombeck book, was when the mommy opens a present and makes a comment of " Oh it’s so little" or " I just love Pink." tell the other ladies there that the comments she makes about the gifts are ones she made the night the baby was conceived. Don’t tell the mommy for the first few times. It’s really a scream.
