Was shockingly bleak...... Don't get me wrong the hostesses did a great job... we had a gorgeous cake.... and played 2 games.... but other than my family (my mom& Dad, Brother & sister, and MIL and Aunt inlaw).... there were only 2 people that came..... I am sooo shocked and hurt.... I really can not grasp why non of my friends came.... I mean we invited about 40 people..... and **crickets** I really just wanna cry.....

Here's a picture of the cake.....

The cake is gorgeous!!! Sorry about the lack of turnout - that is bizarre But on the positive side - you should have a package at your doorstep in 5-8 business days

I'm sorry, Raina. That's really strange Did any of the no-shows give a reason why or let you know a gift is coming?

I'm so sorry - I know exactly how you feel! The SAME thing happened to me last year for my shower. I was so embarassed and hurt that there were people who I truly counted as CLOSE friends who couldn't bother to come to one of the most important events in my life... I was really sad afterwards. I actually dread a second shower this time around because I'm sure even less people will come.

I don't know if this will make you feel better or not - but once the baby was born I was OVERWHELMED with how many gifts, flowers, packages were sent to the hospital and our house. There were people we had never even met (friends of Kyle's parents) dropping gifts off at our home.

So even though you may not feel great about the turn out and response now, just know there is a good chance you will be pleasantly surprised once baby arrives

The cake a gorgeous and I'm so sorry to hear about the turnout. October is such a busy month with kids' Halloween functions - maybe that's why there was a low turnout? I feel for you, I would have been hurt too.

I'm sorry Raina...that is exactly how my shower was with my first DD and I was actually in tears at my shower. Some people are just inconsiderate. This is one of the reasons why I had my work shower on a Friday instead of Saturday or Sunday because people dont want to give up their weekends and since most people work Friday its easier for them to swing by. Mine was also spouse and kid friendly so people wouldnt have such an excuse for not showing... Kinda sad that you would have to make it more convenient for others but I knew I would have a small turnout otherwise and I hated that feeling the first time so I know how you feel...and Im sorry! I am sure people will still give you gifts along with an excuse of why they didnt show but it still doesnt make up for the shower experience.

I'm sorry there wasnt a very big turn out. I hope you still received a lot of great gifts. What did you get?
The cake was beautiful.

Oh I sorry you had a poor turnout. Do you have a sense of why people didn't come? Did they get the invites with enough time?

My shower is on Thanksgiving weekend and I have invited far fewer people so I might be singing the same tune come next month.

I'm sure you'll get lots of gifts once the baby is here.

The cake is gorge!

That is a gorgeous cake! I'm really sorry it was such a low turn-out. My shower is going to be mostly family as well, and a couple of people I don't really know from MIL's church.
I hope you still had a good time.

Oh Raina I'm so sorry. I know how you feel, to an extent... DH's family didn't come. They all have 'a lot going on'. It made me really upset, especially since the money that goes into a shower...

Not to sound greedy but I really relied on my shower to get a lot of things for this LO, and like you I'll end up shopping.

I'm sending a giant hug your way!!

Sorry to hear about the turn out. The cake is wonderful!

I am worried about the same thing happening at my shower too. My shower is on Nov 3rd, and I know for a fact that quite a few ppl that I thought were good friends have already RSVP'd no. My own SIL isn't coming to my shower - didn't bother to even give my sister a reason either. Oh well. I keep telling myself that the people that matter will be there......... I hope!

Oh I'm so sorry, Raina. I know that had to be so disappointing. The cake is absolutely gorgeous, though! And it sounds like you got some nice things for Sophia!
