Help me throw the perfect baby shower!

I need some advice about throwing a baby shower! I've been to lots of wedding showers before, so I assume it's somewhat like that, but this is the first baby (!) in our friend group and I'm a little nervous about how to throw one/what's expected.
At a baby shower:
Do you play games? What kind of games?
Do you have cake? What kind of cake? How is it decorated?
Also! Do you serve food? What kind of food?
What are the decorations like?
Does the host give baby shower favors or door prizes?
Where are baby showers usually held? What time do they usually start? How long do they usually last?
Does the Mother-to-Be open the gifts during the shower? When does this happen?
Is there a difference between what happens/doesn't happen at a "friends" shower vs. a "family" shower? Or a "baby girl" shower vs. a "baby boy" shower?
Both traditional and non-traditional ideas are welcome! Or tales of good or bad experiences or advice or anything else I've forgotten to include! Thank you!
