    Hmmm... I didn't think baby showers had so much meat on the menu.

    It's not safe to have that many people gathered. What if the mother gets sick and loses the baby?

    That's plenty of food.    I think you're going to have quite a bit of meat left over and the fruit/veggies will be gone.    

    Your timing/order is bad.   No more than an hour to eat.  Baby games comes last so you don't hold your guests hostage.    

    It's going to take a very long time for someone to open that many gifts.   Even if they only spend three minutes on each gift...that's still three hours to open 60 gifts.   Your party starts at 1 PM and you don't want the gift opening to start until 4 PM.    No one wants to spent 7 hours at a baby shower.

    There is a reason most baby showers do not have that many people.  Rethink your plan.

    If you must have 60 people,  consider moving the party to 2 PM so you don't serve a meal.   You can just have some canape, play a couple games, then get the gifts opened and serve cake and tea/coffee.    You really can't expect people to stay longer than about three hours total.

    Having a baby? Let's surround it with possible Covid-19 cases and kill it. You are a sick and stupid individual if you want to celebrate a miracle by playing Russian roulette with a newborn which is exactly what someone is doing when they invite 60 people who haven't been tested and false negatives are just as likely as false positive. Testing still remains iffy. If I wasn't clear, f|uck you, you stupidly disgusting waste of flesh. Bye bye troll. Wow, you're really ugly.
