Rain, rain, go away

Who loves a good shower?

Baby Showers, Bridal Showers

Of course they can be so much fun, getting to see everyone and celebrate our friends and family's milestones.  But let's be realistic, watching the guest of honor open gifts that she's registered for and everyone has already seen because they were just shopping with the list in  hand, isn't exactly riveting entertainment. 

Why not try a presentation shower instead?  Guests are instructed to bring their gift unwrapped.  When they get there, they can fill out a tag with their name, affix it to the gift, and place it on the presentation table.  This way the bride (or mother-to-be) can just peruse the table and thank her guests as she mingles through the party.  Great, right?  It opens the shower up to so many other possibilities than bridal bingo!  Now you can have other kinds of entertainment that traditionally wouldn't work at a shower.  This is a great option for Jack and Jill showers, too, because the men would NEVER sit through a traditional shower!
