Is there such a thing as a fun baby shower?

My step mom's friend has very generously offered to host my baby shower. So sweet and yay! Except... I've always sort of hated attending baby showers and I in general find them boring and socially awkward (hey people, come on over so I can feed you some sweets, just be sure to bring a really expensive crib with you). Is there anything I can do to steer the party into an occasion that's more fun for everyone?

The hostess of the shower has a gorgeous home, the party will be taking place in her big & beautiful backyard, and most of the people in attendance will be family and some close friends. Also, the hostess does an amazing job of throwing traditional parties and is being super generous for hosting this and I definitely don't want to step on anyone's toes.
So... given all of that, do you have any suggestions? Have any of you attended baby showers that were surprisingly fun? If so, what was fun about them?
