Does anyone have any ideas for a boy baby shower? It has to be cheap, I live on fixed income.

Make it potluck. People are always embarrassed to ask for others to bring stuff, but I even made my wedding reception potluck. Everyone loves them, you get to show off your recipes. Make your own cake, it tastes better and is tons cheaper. You can get decorations in the crafts department of Walmart. Make up some cheap games. You can Google baby shower games, there are tons of them that only cost time. Go to Dollar Tree for prizes. (04/25/2009)
To cover the tables, use shower curtains from the $store. They are thicker than paper cloth, and if something is spilled you can just mop it up. You can get them in any color. (04/25/2009)
As a cute and inexpensive decoration, you can string a "clothesline" across the room and several people (usually the hostesses) can bring outfits for the baby. Onesies take up a lot of space, and a pack of them is cheap. Also, socks and bibs. This really is cute and appreciated. (04/27/2009)
For table decorations ask people if you can use some kid books and stuffed animals or you can go to a thrift store and buy them very cheaply. A potluck is a very good idea. (05/15/2009)
