privatequestions:  I was talking to a friend who is currently pregnant and wants to have a co-ed shower. She was talking about some other friends who called their co-ed shower a “Baby Blessing”. It had the shower aspect with presents and a registry and food/drinks, but didn’t have any of the normal baby shower games. Instead an area was set up for the guys to go hang out if they didn’t want to stick around for the opening of the presents (I imagine beer/a poker set or pool table).

My friend had a co-ed baby party at their local community center. She couldn’t have alcohol though so maybe a back room in a nice restaurant would be better. Almost like you would do for a grooms supper. Then you could have appetizers, drinks, decorations, and room for games. I think guys would play: pin the bottle or pacifier on the baby, blindfolded. That’s kind of fun for everyone. Just an idea. I’ll keep thinking.

Here is an idea for the invite… could be modified as needed.

…some AmericInn hotels have a side room just outside the pool area that way people can bring their kids to swim after a certain. Time period. The room that I saw fit about 30 people and it was just outside the pool area so the chlorine smell wouldn’t bother.

I didnt read all the comments so I apologize if this has been said but, ive heard of doing a “Bottles & Beer Co-Ed Baby Shower” … I think its clear that its a celebration non traditional as long as no stuffier fmsailes member would be offeneded ( that is if you care what they think)

privatequestions:  In the beginning, it was the ladies on one side and the guys on the other. Before long, and I don’t know how it happened, but all of a sudden, the guys stopped watching the game and participated in the games with the ladies. And as always, the games became drinking games. I was the judge.

privatequestions:  We actually attended a Beer and BBq shower for a friend’s baby in the summer. They had bbqed items, sides, crafts beers, cocktails and no shower games. It was more like a large get-together and a lot of fun for both the men and women. There were a few kids there too but it was clearly an adult event. You could probably get away with having heat lamps in PA in March/April. I know you can rent them but I don’t know the cost – if you know someone in the restaurant business, they’d be able to give you better insight.
