I would give her a guest list of people you’d like invited, as well as a few friends or famly members that you are close to and who would like to help and be involved.

My friends threw me 1 shower and my mom+sisters threw me another one for family friends, neighbors, etc.

I gave both of them a list of names and addresses of people I’d like invited. Also, they asked if there was any food I’d really like to have, and of course the date.

I had a similar situation with my bridal shower.  I hated to plan my own party but everyone was out of town and nothing was getting done even though people kept asking me about it!  I had to say I didn’t know since I knew nothing had been planned!

In the end MOH appologized and something got threw together at the last minute.  Since the planners didnt know my family or their travel/flights plans they somehow assumed I’d do it.. omg.  It was fun and simple in the end.  We combined it with the nails appointment, but all I can say is good luck!  Get people motivated before people have commited to travel plans/life before its too late!

I had two baby showers.

I was very involved in planning the first one. I looked up decorations online. My SIL (brother’s wife) asked my opinion on food, games, and I of course supplied a guest list of my own. Also, on the day of the shower, I helped set up and prepare the food. I loved being able to help.

The second shower, all I did was send my SILs (husband’s sisters) a list of names and addresses. I also approved the date and time, but that was all. I had no say in the games or food. It was still an amazing party, but I wish I could have helped more. I am very particular on games I like (I get embarrassed easily), and I wasn’t sure what kind of food I could handle at the moment. That didn’t take away from how fun it was though. I wasn’t embarrassed at all.

I’m in the process of figuring this out now…still don’t know how it’s all going to work out, but it looks like I may have 3 showers…one for family, one for friends and a last one for sorority sisters…(I have to have a seperate one for sorority sisters because they can get out of control and embarrasing at times…and can you believe they are 30+…*sigh*)

My baby shower was handled by my husband and best male friend. Since we went to the hospital before it happened, I don’t know what they were planning, but they were talking pretty much everyday about it. My only request: a Cake Wrecks inspired cake. Good luck!
