Um if there isn’t enough room for people I say have the baby shower outside for the gift opening. The best part about baby shower are seeing the cute gifts the mom to be recieves during the shower. I opened mine in front of everyone…other wise what is the point of staying for the whole shower?

Given that the whole point of a baby shower is to present gifts to the mom,I think opening them at the door would be a little dismissive of the time, energy and money the guests have spent on choosing their present.

I feel it would be rude to keep guests standing at the door while they wait to give their gift to the Mom. She will also be under pressure to open the gifts fast to move the line along.
