I've noticed lots of spa baby shower ideas being tossed around including recipes for avocado facial masks, how to instructions for setting up a virtual production line of manicure and pedicure chairs and tips for where to have the masseuse set up their tables so as not to interfere with the flow of traffic or the feng shui of the venue. The only part of the planning process that I haven't seen discussed in such detail is menu ideas.

Is this because mommies that are interested in a pampering shower are all watching their weight and don't have much interest in loading up on even low calorie, low carb baby shower food?

Not that I don't have to watch my weight, but I kind of look forward to showers with anticipation using them as an excuse to blow my diet. Yeah, I know that's not a pretty confession to have to make but the truth is the truth.

So, tell me if I'm the only person in the whole wide world that would be taken aback and feel really let down to find that I've been invited to a shower that offers facials rather than food and the only decorations are massage tables and manicure stations.

Please send in your votes as to whether you think that baby shower decorations and food should take second place to beauty treatments and while you're at it, you can share your own spa baby shower ideas and tell us what your favorite baby shower theme may be.
