My eldest daughter is expecting her first baby (a boy) and so we are having a baby shower for her in a couple of weeks. Any ideas for the party - food, decorations and games appreciated.

I am not usually tempted by blue coloured food but tiny (inch square) blue lamingtons, partially slitthrough with a dab of cream o top, are very cute.
Of course tiey cup cakes bite size club sandwiches, cheese platter, warm savouries...prob more savoury than sweet.

Games...look up google. My daughters shower recently everyone there had to take a baby photo of themselves and they had ato guess who was who as an adult.
EVeryone brings and "old" pareeting tip and compares it todays "modern" parenting.

If you have access to an old vintage dolls pram, that is a nice place to put the presents.

GAMES
Guess who - baby pictures of all the guests...
Ask questions of the father to be - ie: How many hours does a newborn sleep? How many nappies do they go through? What is an epidural?
Name the baby - based on a theme (Names starting with TH, Royal Names, Last names that can be first names

FOOD
High Tea is often a great choice
Mini club sandwiches, Savouries and slices

Freeform Savoury and sweet tarts
Quiche and salads

Decorations
Lanterns with a blue + Green colour theme strung up across a wall
Blue & Green Crepe paper table cloth
Garland or your daughters baby photos

We played a 'naughty' game at my grand-daughter's baby shower. It was a version of pin the tail on the donkey but the 'donkey' was an ovum and the 'tail' was a sperm with real wiggly tail. Nearest to the nucleus was winner.

We also wrote the mum's and dad's names across the top of the page and guests had to make as many words of 3 or more letters out of the names.

The other naughty game doing the rounds is @#$%& face or birth face.

It could be innocence or ignorance on my part, Griz but what is that naughty game?

I'm in the dark about that one too, Griz. The mind boggles!

Every person is given a card with faces on it, the faces are either from a p*o*r*n movie or photos of women giving birth, the aim is to guess which is which.
