Too many people at baby shower

by wendy bowskill
(ontario canada)

MY daughter in law is expecting a baby girl and I am throwing a baby shower for her.

She is writing a list and because her sister has 2 kids and a small house she has asked me if i could have both sides. she is thinking 60 people.

i think thats crazy. maybe 30. i do suffer from an ataxia so this would be huge. mind you it would be in the summer, so outside.

Would it be rude for me to tell her I am comfortable with 30. I may add they had their wedding in our backyard with 60 people

Thank you

Baby showers are alway NEW
by: Elizabeth jennifer

Baby showers are always special. It's a perfect time to get together with friends and family who are also sharing the anticipation with you. But then again, there are a number of things that you have to consider. These include the food, venue, decorations, games, and even your party favors. Looking for the latter, meanwhile, can be quite a challenge.

baby shower
by: Dandelion

As the hostess of the shower, you know what you can comfortably host. If host's and guest of honor's visions of the party are drastically different, host should gently say to mom-to-be,

"I'm sorry, but I can't possibly host so big a shower. My home will comfortably hold 30. May I have your list by next Friday so I can send out the invitations?"

If the mom-to-be persists, gently suggest that the shower should be elsewhere, as you will be unable to give her the party she obviously wants.
