Break the ice and get everyone involved with a few crowd-friendly shower games. These baby-inspired activities offer a healthy dose of competition:
Bake sugar cookies in the shape of the letter “B” and decorate them with light blue royal icing. Wrap each one in cellophane and tie it with a strip of vintage fabric. Or hand out disposable cameras tied with blue ribbon and ask each guest to send a photo from the party to add to a scrapbook for the baby.
This hearty but simple menu is delicious and easy to prep. Make the barbecue sauce ahead of time and put all the burger fixings at a station near the grill. Serve bowls of blue tortilla chips for guests to dip into the spicy salsa guacamole. For drinks, set out galvanized buckets of the dad’s favorite beer along with pitchers of refreshing lemonade tea for the mom-to-be and any young guests.
