I decided on an activity, well kind of one. I made a box and wrapped it with ribbons that go with the projected colors of hot pink and green.
It's really helpful to have a printer and office fully stocked with index cards and ink to do such projects in 15 minutes.
This took some more time. In lieu of the candy buffet thing which I love how it looks and maybe we'll have a few on display just for funsies, we're gonna have the parting gifts be these little candy bags with a card that says:

I hate baby showers, detest them. A brilliant blogger said she doesn't understand theme-ing it to a baby because the shower is for the mommy, so why not make it something the mommy will enjoy? This shower is like Liz, happy & fun.
Plus, let's be real, the shower is an excuse to get presents for a first time parent and I used to feel weird about it but now, heck no. My sister is gonna be a 20 year old single mom and she needs stuff for the child that she can't afford to buy herself. And when people get married, they're starting out and need stuff too. So I know that my investment in the party is gonna have immediate results when my sister gets baby stuff she genuinely needs. endrant
