Alright, this is the deal.   2 of my fave people from work have some very important events going on in their lives right now.   One, Josie, is leaving us (in St Louis) to move closer to her mother in Utah.  Her last day here is June 27th.   Another, Kristi, is almost 5 months preggers.   Ok, so us girls at work want to throw a going away party for Josie, but Josie wanted to have a baby shower for Kristi before leaving.  (Keeping up?)

So we set aside the 26th of June and reserve a nice-sized pavillion at a park.  In order to keep an element of surprise for both of the girls we have decided to tell each that the party is actually for the other.  (Tell Josie it is a shower for Kristi, and Kristi that it is a party for Josie). 

Alright, I want to decorate this pavillion up....but how do we blend a baby shower with a going away/good luck party?   We know we are going to buy 2 small cakes for them, and I've decided to get 2 small balloon boquets to go on the table with the cakes, but any other ideas floating around out there?   

Josie really loves Care Bears, so with her I'm leaning on more of a "Good Luck" Bear theme.....but Kristi is doing her baby stuff in Pooh (tho, for the shower I'm thinking of using a more genaric theme as I have seen an adorable one to use).  I'm pretty sure Kristi will have a more formal shower later down the road.   

ANYWAY......anyone have any ideas? 

I can do personal swaps!  ^_^

Sorry, I can't think of any good ideas! But that is a really smart idea, and also, 26th June is my sister's birthday! Ha ha, I bet that really helped you.

I think mixing the two themes is just fine.  Splash up some goodluck bears in between the cute baby theme stuff you found.  Who wouldnt love a surprise party in their honor, especially if its shared with a friend?  As far as other ideas... im not quite sure.  Were you just looking for decoration ideas or activities or wha? 
Good luck and have fun!
