Baby Shower 'Protocol' Question Another Question
I am expecting my third baby in Oct and 2 friends decided to throw me my first real baby shower, its scheduled for Sept 22. I was just wondering since I havent been to many baby showers and I have never actually had one of my own... What is proper protocol for saying thank you to the two hostesses? One is doing most of the planning, food, decorating and the other is hosting it at her house and I am sure helping with food and stuff like that. At the last baby shower I was at the mom to be publicly thanked the 3 hostesses and gave them some really nice personalized gifts. Which I thought was nice... But I have never seen that done before... Is that typical? Would it be weird if I did that? Or should I do it more privately??
Also; what kinds of things can I give as a "thank-you-for-throwing-me-a-shower" gift???
Another question: Do I provide the paper/envelopes for people to write their addresses down so I can send out thank you cards? I want to make sure I have all their addresses so I can send out proper thank yous to the attendees
