Just curious…has anyone been to one of these “green” showers?  I love the idea of saving paper and not having everyone stare at me for an hour unwrapping gifts.  What exactly does the invite say that tells guests to bring gifts unwrapped?  Thanks!

Yes, it gets crazy, insanely boring.

I felt like I was being held captive at the last shower I attended, it dragged out soooo long. It was the reason I only had like 10 people at my shower – I just don’t enjoy them!

My first shower had about 45 people, and man, it was loooooooong.

We did play one game during the opening.  They sent a list of questions to DH, and he answered them.  During the opening, they asked me a question.  If I got it right, I got to open a gift, and if I got it wrong, I had to put a piece of gum in my mouth.

It was fun, for a few gifts.  When I opened the rest, pretty much everyone just sat around and watched.  Not exciting.  They did do the cake cutting during the gifts, so that broke it up a little bit.

Wowsers! I think I’ll have maybe 10-15 ladies MAXIMUM at my shower. Apparently I don’t know enough females. 😉

I like watching the opening, but probably wouldn’t enjoy the doing.
