Baby-Shower Alternative

Lil Community: A Baby-Shower Alternative For Sterling

It's raining baby showers around here! We've asked readers to share their showers and sprinkles with us in our Baby Showers Tips and Pics group. Today, lacysilicz shares the party her friends threw her instead of a traditional baby shower.

My best friends threw my husband and I a co-ed baby party! This was definitely not your typical baby party. It was very casual with an open bar. It made it fun for the men and the women. My husband's friends bought us a gun safe and filled it with diapers. It was fun for all and a great way to have a non-traditional baby shower.

Share your own baby shower — you could win our latest contest! We're giving away a grand prize Serena & Lily nursery worth over $3,500 — including a Bratt Decor Crib and $1,000 in Oilily clothing. Five first-prize winners will walk away with a $25 Serena & Lily Gift Card, a $25 Oilily Gift Card, and a Serena & Lily Nursery Style book! How does it work? Click here to enter, and hurry! The giveaway ends on June 28!
