OK, my first review ever, so please bear with me :)
Ms. Benjamin wrote a great book. I really like it. Not that I'm planning a Baby Shower or anything, but the last I've been to was about 3 weeks ago, so I got curious if we'd done it right. It was also my first "co-ed" baby shower (I didn't even know it was called that, LOL). I remember it was very nicely organized and it was a lot of fun, but all I could think of was how much work it must've been and how lucky I was that I wasn't the one responsible.
Well, I could swear my girlfriends must've read this book because it has it all down to the science. The seating arrangements, the games, the gifts, even the checklist, everything! And the decoration tips are great too; we threw our baby shower at a bar, and they told us to do whatever we wanted with the place which we did:), but having read the book we could've done better.
One thing I know is this: with Alison's book, throwing a great baby shower is a piece of cake. I know I won't panic if I ever have the honors.
