Just wondering if any of you have thrown (or been the recipient) of a more "natural" /AP baby shower. My friends want to throw me one, and they are all very pro-AP, CD, etc...but need ideas.<br><br>
Would you just state in the invite that we don't want swings, bouncy chairs, disposable diapers, plastic toys, etc....? We'd like to come up with a cute THEME to convey the idea...because many of the people who would attend are used to buying the other junk.<br><br>
I really don't want very much "stuff" before the baby arrives anyway....so maybe a "diaper" theme or something? Aaaaargh...<br>
just don't know, but I'm excited to hear what kind of showers you all have had!! Please share!!<br><br>

p.s. I hope I'm not sounding ungrateful...I will gladly accept all gifts from friends and family... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I just might return them!

You might consider registering for gifts at a natural company, like<br><br><a href="http://www.babyminestore.com" target="_blank">http://www.babyminestore.com</a><br><br><a href="http://www.organicbebe.com" target="_blank">http://www.organicbebe.com</a><br><br><a href="http://www.ecobaby.com" target="_blank">http://www.ecobaby.com</a><br><br><a href="http://www.babyNmore.com" target="_blank">http://www.babyNmore.com</a><br><br><a href="http://www.katieskisses.com" target="_blank">http://www.katieskisses.com</a><br><br>
etc.<br><br>
(all of the above companies, with the exception of the first one, can be combined into one big registry through <a href="http://www.felicite.com" target="_blank">http://www.felicite.com</a><br><br>
Baby Mine Store has their own separate gift registry, but they give guests the option of shipping the gifts to themselves so they can wrap them and bring them to the shower, which I think is an advantage. Felicite will only ship to you, a feature I don't particularly like.)<br><br>
Then just make sure all of your guests know where you have registered!

Unique Baby Boutique offers Blessingways, where they can actually purchase items from the catalog for you. It's actually a home party company, so you can have the shower and let them purchase from your wish list!<br><br><a href="http://www.uniquebabyboutique.com" target="_blank">www.uniquebabyboutique.com</a> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
