Punk Rock Baby Shower
by Suzanne C.
(Marathon, Fl USA)
My friend decided she wanted a "non-traditional" baby shower. We sent out blood-red and black invites, with lettering like you'd see on a rock poster. My Mom photoshoped a cute baby with a green mohawk for the cover.
For decorations we used black plastic trash bag table cloths, we wound a leather bull whip and some chains around our wrought iron chandelier in the dining room.
We served neon colored imported sodas, iced down in (slightly) rusty galvanized tubs. For food we served pizza rolls, mcdonalds cheeseburgers, taco bell bean burritos (cut in thirds), and potato chips. My Mom made a standard Winnie the Pooh cake mold, but she used red velvet cake. She also frosted Winnie to have a green mohawk, leather studded wrist bands, and we stuck a hoop earring through his nose and a stud through his ear.
The baby shower invitations asked everyone to wear their punk rock best. This was perhaps the BEST part of the entire shower!
My Mom, my friend's Mom, my sisters and all of our guests (young and old) dressed in full punk glory. There was pink, red and green hair, dreadlocks, black lipstick, shredded clothes and safety pins everywhere. The Mom-to-be's mom is usually quite conservative, so her plaid jacket with black Ramones t-shirt and jeans, plus green hair and silver lipstick was immediately awarded "Best Costume". Her prize was a leather dog collar!

Punk Rock baby shower?! I can't imagine how creative the party will be ;-) There is a theme called "A Star is Born" which is very close to the concept of Rock & Roll party
or music party.
