MissCompanion:  20 is plenty. I have never been to a shower with more people despite the elaborate affairs we sometimes read about.

A small hostess gift would be appropriate. If you nanny for the children in their homes, you have insider access into what the women like. A nice bottle of wine or a scented candle would be nice.

MissCompanion:  20 is plenty! I don’t have a ton of friends in the state I live in so I’m not having a bridal shower. We’re combining it with an “engagement party” on the east coast in July. It’s really sweet they want to throw you a shower! Enjoy yourself and don’t feel bad! 20 is about 10 more than I would have to invite if I had a shower here!

MissCompanion:  20 is a great number! It would allow you to spend time with your guests at the shower. I agree with PP…since you work for these women in their homes just pick a small thank you that you know they would like/use.

And don’t be embarrassed by the number of friends you have (my list would seriously be 11…and that includes the two ladies I nannied for and my family)…quality over quantity is better in the friends department anyway.
