Yeah, I would tell her no way, you want something low key.

I would not attend a shower where I not only had to bring a gift, but had to pay my way (in terms of food).  Been there, done that, never again!

I hate pay your own way parties, I think they are tacky.  Last baby shower I was invited to that was a pay your own way event, I dreaded going but was kinda forced into going.  I brought a gift for $2 in spite since I had to pay for my own entrance and food.  I was not happy.  

I say do something low key… a few of your bm’s and your mom can have a potluck at someone’s house.  Much cheaper and more low-key and probably more fun.

If you want to help out with the financial aspect, like giving your bm cash towards food, I think that’s fine.

@FMCollado:  Yes, I think it’d be a bit weird to ask shower guests to pay for their meals – especially because most everyone will be bringing gifts already. I think going the low-key route would be a much better option 🙂
