Hello again,Customer and thanks for your reply.
I apologize for the 'typo' in the last paragraph of my answer. I was very well focused, and only because the words 'bridal shower' also naturally go together so often, I made an error in my typing. Please be assured that I was very well aware I was referring to a BABY shower in my response. : )
The only options I can advise, are those already recommended. There is more information about Baby Shower 'etiquette' at the following website, which I believe you will find helpful:
As you can see, it's appropriate nowadays, for close friends and/or relatives to host the baby shower for the mother to be. The only thing that is *not* appropriate, is for the expectant mom to host the shower herself.
Please let me know your thoughts and if you would like to discuss this further.
I do hope you find my answers helpful, but if you should not, please let me know, and do not click 'accept'. Thanks.
