Throw a baby shower tea party for charity. Many charities already use this method of fund-raising themselves. The idea being that on a particular date they ask people to hold a tea party and ask guests to donate a small amount of money to attend. If the baby shower was due to fall around one of these dates it could be tied in with the specific charity publicising the event nationally. If not, however, you could perhaps ask the mum-to-be which charity she would most like to support. Make it clear in the invitations that you are asking for a charity donation rather than for them to bring a gift as the mum-to-be already has everything they need and that they would love to be able to give something to others whilst still being able to enjoy the company of their friends.
Have a Santa-like surprise gift delivery After the mother-to-be (or both mom and dad) arrive at the baby shower, and everyone is enjoying some food (and the kids are being entertained), enlist the help of someone to deliver all the gifts.When guests arrive, ask them to drop the gifts into your garage, into a vehicle parked out the way, or in another hiding spot. Then, the helper can gather them into a bag and deliver them to the party. Ask this person to dress in a Smurf or Smurfette costume so it's the same type of scene as someone dressed as Santa delivering Christmas gifts.
Create a diaper cake Rather than decorating the diaper cake using traditional baby shower decorations, use Smurf decorations. If you know the gender of the baby, you can focus the decorations on a particular male Smurf or Smurfette, in addition to using Smurfy blue ribbon, or pink ribbon to keep the diaper cake together. Try finding a smurf figurine to place on top of the diaper cake.
