  • Depends on your style. I'd throw one at home (and I did) and save the money it would have cost to do it at a hotel/banquet hall for more baby stuff.

  • I think one at home is much more personal and takes more thought, but I have gone to some at an expensive setting. I am into flowers so if it is at your home you could spend more on flowers to make the rooms more dramatic and have really scumptious food. It might be more work, but shows the amount of thought you put into it (and gets you more points......LOL.........just kidding) Like said earlier, it really depends on your style.

  • I don't think you should have your own shower! If it is for someone else, you could compromise and do it at a hall, or a place that has a seperate dining room, my friend threw me one at a mexican place and it was fun!

  • At home save the money for something for the baby.

  • I think whatever is financially more comfortable for the other friends and relatives as a group to do.

  • I may have misunderstood. Just to clarify...........my reply assumed you were throwing the shower for someone else.
