    In the event that we have a new little baby to come - I'm making reparations for a baby shower. Anyone want to come and help?

    We need, a location
    food, drink (non alcoholic), cake, games, theme?, color, music

    And a list of MUST HAVES......

    absolutely NO butter soup with cricket garnish.

    I would like to do this in mint green, with lilac and ecru

    For the theme, how about a "Round the Clock" shower.
    Each person takes an hour and brings an item that is suitable for that time of day.

    Mint green with lilac and ecru is a lovely colour scheme, Star. I second that.

    Drink: Shirley Temple (Ginger Ale with a splash of grenadine). Non-alcoholic, looks very pretty, and the ginger ale soothes any stomach upset that might be in the offing...

    Cake: White cake, decorated in theme colour icing.

    ewww yes with little sugar mold baby booties in green and lilac!

    I just put together a few table decorations -

    They are white calla lillies, baby's breath, lilys of the valley, mint green mini carnations w lilac wisteria draping down the sides of the tall thick crystal vases that are filled with mint colored frosted pieces of jasper.

    The table cloths are Ecru colored Irish linen trimmed in lace angled with the under cover on straight in a crisp ironed large weave linen.

    That's as far as I've gotten - except that I have Swaroski crystals to throw all over the tables and each take home gift is a white oval pillar candle with a smaller shaped candle on a beveled mirror.

    I say we have it pool side at one of the casinos in Vegas. Make it a private party with all of those towel boys to wait on us hand and foot. Sound good?

    In the event the pregnancy test was a false alarm, I thought we should have a backup plan and have a cyber Menopause party for NTVS.

    I'm not much into the colors and decorations so I'll let someone else take care of that.

    I'll provide a private island with beachfront.

    And Raoul.

    Hey, Mustang, it's a BABY shower -- not a Bachlorette party! But I LOVE your idea! Bring on the towel boys!

    Okay, this I can relate to. Mustang has a good idea over on the Baby shower thread -- but it works even better here. So bring on the towel boys!

    in my humble opinion menopausal women need plenty of rest, plenty of red wine and plenty of Godiva truffles to feel human.

    What a great idea!

    I'll go to either shower! I'd offer my firstborn, but you guys know too much about him!

    I needed the laughs on this!

    How about a colour scheme of turquoise and tan.
    Turquoise for the ocean, tan for the beach (and for the pool boys who will be waiting on us hand and foot, fanning us with palm fronds, etc. at the beach)

    Drink: Daiquiri. Or, anything fruity with a paper umbrella in it.
    Dessert: Chocolate dipped strawberries, fed to us by hand, by the aforementioned pool boys
    Games: Watching the pool boys frolic, fetch and carry.

    I knew if I came to you guys, you'd help me find the funny in this situation!

    totoro Mom? What's a GFG?

    Yes!!! Little vanilla cakes with buttercream frosting, with a light green dye... of course. With real flowers placed all over each cake... one per person. Edible flowers...

    Count me in! I need a party, doesn't matter if it's a menopause party or a baby shower. lol

    I'm bringing along baloons in mint, lilac, and ecru (soon as someone tells me what color that truely is?) with lil binkies drawn on them. And a lovely knitted afgan in the same colors for the baby with Dumbo in the center. Dumbo provides the blue if it's a boy.

    Oh, and crib sheets. You can never have enough crib sheets.

    Daisylover, do you think you could shift the afghan pattern from Dumbo to Orlando Bloom if it turns out to be menopause?

    SRL -

    I want you to know that I SNORTED out loud at work thinking about your Orlando Bloom embroidery instead of Dumbo.

    Now I have to say something like - I gagged on my mid-morning snack of grapes and it made me laugh.

    Ecru is like a clean tan. And Towel boys are a fantastic addition to this LasVegas Pool side location.

    BRING ON THE DANCING MEN. and Chocolate - loads of chocolate.

    Only this group would throw such an elaborate party equal to please a new mother or a menopausal woman.

    TRINITY - what are in the give-away bags? Do you have those done yet?

    I have the PERFECT place. It's a lovely casino outside of the strip...waterfalls, private cabanas...and POOL BOYS. And the best of all, it's cheap. I'll even bring some tunes!!

    (note to Trinity) I think the addition of turquoise to the ecru, mint, and lavender is a perfect striking opposite -

    Can I get a Swedish massage? (snap snap) OH TOWEL BOY!:devil2:

    Whenever I get a massage here, which has been all of 2 times, they always ask: Do you want a male or female? Ummm....(I'm pretending to think at this point)...ok, why not a male? Actually, I think one of them was named Raoul.
