  • My best friend had one for me at her house. But she got promoted at work about 3 weeks before hand, so I did alot of the planning and stuff myself. We invited pretty much every female in my family, and another women I was close to, including my Bil's girlfriend, and all of DH's family. Just remember, the more people that come the more work it will be for everyone, but also the more presents that you will have for the baby!

  • I guess you could say my mom threw it for me. I don't have any sisters and my other SIL's have kids or are very busy. I helped her a lot, put my input in here and there. It turned out great. We had it at my house and had a restuarant cater it.

  • My mom and my hubby's one sister threw one for me. There were about 25 people there. We had another at my husband's office. And we had one that a bunch of friends got together and did - there were about 20 people there too.

  • My mom and sis and mil gave me my first and we invited around 25-30 guest. But with this baby I think that we are going to have a baby shower BBQ were men are invited too.

  • With my first child I had a shower from my church, and 2 others from family members.

    I think it's extremely bad taste to host your own shower. It's one thing to have a welcome home baby party or a "let's celebrate baby with a bar-b-q" party but showers should be gifts.
