LarLa:  I would ask her if she would be okay with it or whether she was planning a Sunday party. Explain that it’s the only weekend that works for the hosts, but you wanted to check-in with her first…unless the relationship is a bit strained, she’ll probably appreciate the gesture.

Why wouldn’t she be coming to your shower?

LarLa:  Have the shower on the date that works for the best for you. A two-year old’s birthday party the day before a shower is no big deal. Have your shower on that Sunday.

i see no problem with that.  you can’t please everyone.  if this date works for you and the hosts, then you should pick it.

Definitely go ahead and have your shower on the date you selected, and lock it down fast before someone plans a baby shower for the same day. Don’t worry about the flower girl’s bday party; it’s not in direct conflict with your date, and if anyone feels it’s just “too much” for one weekend, they can miss one event or the other. No date is going to be perfect for every adult in your circle, so just do the best you can.

Go ahead and have the shower when you want it. I wouldn’t care if it took place on my birthday- you can’t accommodate everyone.

Like PPs said, there is no 100% perfect date.  It’s the day after the nieces birthday, and if you have the date locked, niece’s parents will know if they plan a party, that they should have it on Saturday.

Having it the same weekend as your flower girls birthday does not seem like an issue to me. I am assuming she is a little girl and her party will be small and during the day, so it does not seem like it would be conflicting to a bridal shower that following day. You will be a busy lady but if it is the best date to pick with everything else going on I say do it!!!!
