  • There is nothing tacky about throwing your own baby shower my dear...I husband family doesn't live here and I am from the island so I had no one to do it for me. I did it on my own and I had fun.
    Go ahead and do it if you can...its all about you and what you want to do at this point to make you and your sweetie pie happy! Good luck hun.

  • Hey who cares what other people maybe it's a little tacky, then throw a 'welcome baby' party. I mean if you have noone to plan it then go for it and if people come then I guess they didnt mind the tackyness of it.

  • I threw mine. All my family was too cheap and selfish to even consider it for me.
    You go girl! Have a good one!

  • Yeah, I would think so. If you ask for no gifts, then maybe it won't be so tacky.. Because it would be wrong to throw your own party and expect gifts in my opinion.
