My girl did hers at home, I didn't attend.

If you can do it at home (if its big enough or not use someone else's) tht way you save money on hiring out a hall or whatever... Don't know why ppl hire out halls for baby showers they are just supposed to be small intimate affairs

I made her some CDs to play, food wise I cooked some chicken, suya kebabs and a few other nibbles were offered n drinks n that

The cost is what u make it, she invited about 20 ppl in total, a few of them were from my side like a couple cousins that shes quite close to and my sister.

been to one and threw one (for a friend) make sure you have games and music i made pinata which was fun. or look on the net for some entertaining stuff.

otherwise depending on the women attending it can be dry.

in terms of food i would just cook a selection of things buffet style ie. chicken, rice&peas, mac&cheese, salad etc.. also had a cake (tailor to yourself) and have drinks& nibbles. The one I threw was a very small affair (about 6 of us) just because it's not a drink up type of thing, you want people who know you and are coming to celebrate this new chapter in your life.

 

I cant remember how much it cost maybe £70 excluding the presents we got for her. If your lady has close friends that are willing to help it should be easy to throw together. good luck hope you have a good one.

Baby Shower Rule - Thou shall only have one if the presents the friends shall bring are worth MORE than putting on the shower.

 

Basically if her family & friends are cheap. Tell them come round when the babies born.

I'm sure you're not supposed to organize your own baby shower, rather someone else close to the mother.

Quite tacky to throw your own.

Usually close friends/fam of the girl would organise this, only input the man should have is maybe helping with the present list..what they need etc.

Kmt mandem were watching champion league finals at mine lol. I had a good time tho mostly finger foods dips and salads cake nice decorations eg baby bottles filled with sweets. Was gd weather so my cousin mixed rum in to some home made natural smoothies. I didn't want games because it was mixed gender attendees. But there are games. My sons father didn't come till the end just to pick me up as my cousin hosted it.
