*sigh* Almost everyone has something going on and cannot make it...right now I have ONE person who is coming. And even if every other person I have not heard from comes, that will be a total of 4 adults and 2 kids. And my mom.
So now I don't know if I should even have it, or just cancel. I don't know if it is even worth it to have a shower for 4 people....how patheticLOL
Any input/ideas/suggestions? I am stressing out, it is supposed to be in 2 weeks on the 16th. I have not ordered a cake yet or anything, annoyed I wasted 30 dollars on invites though.
Could you make it an open house event so people don't have to be there at a particular time? So those with other plans can still make it?
Another option is to reschedule it for after the baby is born and make it more of a "meet n' greet" the baby (and most people bring gifts anyways).
Or, I think you could still have a shower with 4 people, your mom, and you. With small showers, you can make it more of a formal event. Have a tea party with fancy little sandwiches! That would be so cute and memorable. It would be harder to do something like that with 20+ people.
Those are my three main recommendations. Let me know if you need more ideas!
I like the idea mentioned above! Making it a meet and greet for both you and the baby.
Where we live, those meet and greet gatherings are actually very common. People visit and bring their gifts when the baby is born. That way they have the chance to get gender orientated presents or gift vouchers, instead of the baby essentials, which I personally like to pick out myself.
I've never been to a baby shower before, nor am I having one myself.
