So I know this is a silly theme for a baby shower but my sister-in-law and brother-in-law (who are expecting in June) love the movie and watch it all the time. They even nicknamed their little bundle of joy "Carlos" already ... lol. So if anyone has seen the movie and has any ideas as to how to do this theme ... I would love to hear them. Thanks in advance :)

ADDED: I probably should have added that they did a Vegas themed wedding already so I was trying to stay away from that but thanks :)
- Haha good thoughts everyone! I was thinking of putting smarties in everyone's drinks so it looks like I am giving them a roofie (sp.?) ... lol. Still don't know for sure if I will be able to pull this off but keep any ideas coming :)

What can I do next?

Put a big stuffed tiger in the - where was it? the bathroom? No need to clean your house, just trash it like the hotel room was! LOL! Honestly, that's a tough theme.


answers from Los Angeles on

I totally love that movie too. I have no idea how to merge the movie theme and a baby shower together though. LOL. Here are a few ideas
*See if the guests can make a song up about the mommy to be or being a mommy using the same melody as "what do tigers dream of"
*Play a game with rubber chickens (they were in the hotel)
*Give everyone a disposable camera and let them snap away (the pictures from the digital camera at the end of the movie)
*Make a quiz game of the actual movie
*See who can recreate carlos in the baby carrier using a fake baby doll and toilet paper
*Have everyone wear a blackout tooth (for Stu).
*Hire a stripper? (well it was in the movie, lol)
Thats about all I can think of. =)



answers from Washington DC on

I have no idea if I am thinking of the correct movie or not but wasn't there a purple convertable (or some cool car) and a tiger in the bathroom? Maybe focus on decoratign with those sorts of props, rather than tring to recreate the movie plot which could easily decline in to tackiness. Maybe you can also come up with a fun game like trivia about the movie and things you can't remeber since you've had kids..



answers from Sacramento on

Can't think of how exactly you'd use these, but these are the things that jump out from my memory of the movie:

Missing tooth
Mike Tyson
Stolen police car
Baby in a baby carrier/Baby Bjorn
Hospital visit
Wedding with inappropriate wedding singer



answers from Seattle on

They should do a vegas theme like in the movie. It would be perfect.



answers from Chicago on

Maybe you could take funny quotes from the movie, print them out and hang them around the room. You could really take it up a notch and ask guests to dress as a character form the movie. Could get a little crazy and take the focus off the baby though!?
What a fun challenge!!!!
