A very good friend asked me to host her baby shower and I happily agreed. I'm very excited for her and honored that she wants me to host. However, she has a lot of ideas for the shower that I simply can't afford. I am a stay at home mom and my finances are pretty tight. I can afford to throw her a nice simple shower but not the type she seems to want. She showed me the invites she's in love with and they are $2.00 each to order. She also has a very large guest list to she recommended a hall to rent that is $175.00. These are things I simply cannot afford. Her husband makes quite a lot more than mine so I think she honestly just doesn't realize that this is going to be too much for me. I don't want to ruin her special day but I just honestly can't throw the shower she wants.
