Safety pin game
You will need enough ribbon to tie around each guest's wrist, plus five small gold safety pins for each person.
Pin five safety pins onto each ribbon bracelet. As each guest arrives, tie a ribbon around her wrist. Choose three common words the guests are not allowed to say throughout the shower -- such as the bridegroom's name, wedding, dress, honeymoon, etc. Instruct the guests that whenever someone hears a person say one of these words, they can take a safety pin from that person. The one with the most pins at the end wins. You may
wish to award the winner an inexpensive prize.
Pun on products game
Purchase a variety of common household products. Wrap and number each one.
Write a story about the bride and bridegroom, leaving blank spaces numbered to correspond with the gift-wrapped items. Give each guest one of the wrapped items. The bride stands up and reads the narrative. When she comes to a blank, the guest with the corresponding number opens that gift and fills in the blank. Make copies of the narrative for each guest to fill in and take home.
