Baby shower

So I'm having my first baby and I'm going to have to start thinking of the baby shower soon but do I need to do a formal type shower? I really don't want to, I'm not a fancy type person. I'm more of a laid back person so I was thinking of doing just a real simple, casual bbq/cookout type of party with our friends and family at our house. Maybe do a couple baby type games but nothing real crazy. Plus I'm doing a coed shower so I think it would be even better so the guys can just chill and have fun too. What are your thoughts?
