At this point, I think your best bet is to go along with the whole thing.  The theme has been set and it might hurt feelings to suggest anything but appreciation.  Bottom line, you are being celebrated by your friends and family.  I would even let the SIL get her way, everyone there will know who the parties for.  I don’t think it will take the limelight from you.  Particularly if you’re the one wearing the funny outfit.

I’ve been to a shower with a bride who was not a good sport and it made everyone feel ackward and less than appreciated.  I’ve learned that much of the wedding process is about picking your battles and making sure everyone feels welcome and appreciated.

Its not your party, meaning you are not the hostess, sorry they got you so wrong which I think is what is bothering you the most-I know it would me–I am classic, simple so something that looked like a craft store blew up would be weird for me.  HOWEVER, as you are not the hostess you are not responsible, for the theme, just think how chic your house will seem to others in the future and I think you will have an extra wide secret smile in all of the pictures

I’m so happy you were able to enjoy it. I would be upset if someone announced her pregnancy at my shower, but you did the right thing by not making it a big deal. Good for you, Gracielou, for showing such grace under pressure!
