      Ok, why not have it where the people who come bring a dish and make it a potluck thing. As far as where, some seniors’ residences allow things like that and churches often allow them at a low cost. As for lunch, again, you could make a brown bag lunch thing and then have everybody switch their brown bag with somebody else as a game.
      Favors – go to the dollar store – they are handsome for things that come in numbers/packages of more than one.
      Theme – use what you have at home. Baby clothes taped to the wall, pictures from magazines on bristol board, poems you can find online about babies etc., all make great ideas for scrapbooking on bristol board.
      these are all just ideas but it sounds like a lot of fun

      Hi everyone!
      My Mom wants to throw me my baby shower. I’m having twins in August
      (I’m 17wks along right now)! 🙂
      We need help with a few suggestions…firstly, mom won’t be able to
      pay for the whole thing, so we ar egoing to help contribute as much
      as we can. The shower will likely be held in May.
      The first issue is, we will need a place to hold the shower. Mom’s
      house and ours are both too small, and neither of us have large yards.
      We’d LOVE to be able to have it at a restaurant or something, where
      food is included, but they cost about $12-15/per person, so that is
      out of thw question, being that we’ll have around 50 guests. Any
      ideas on finding a hall or some other establishment that will let us
      hold the shower at a low cost, W/OUT having to use their catering?
      And, on the subject of food…what would be a good, affordable lunch
      time menu for a crowd this size? I’m thinking we could make various
      salads (tossed, pasta, potato, etc), but I’m at a loss for anything
      Favors? I’m drawing a complete blank here! LOL
      Another area lacking imagination is a theme. Are themes necessary?
      Have any of you been to a shower that you loved that we can try and
      recreate inexpensively?
      Any ideas, tips, anything at all that you all may suggest would be
      most appreciated.
      Thank you,
      Kris 🙂
