    Is your host set on having it at her house? Maybe if you encourage her to hold it at a cute restaurant a half hour closer to your guests they would come?

    I agree with the previous poster — can you figure out a way for it to be somewhere between the two locations?

    I’m sorry about the loss of your mom. This situation is tough, as you don’t want to say no to somone hosting a party for you! But when it comes down to it, you might want to make it more convenient for your guests. Hosting a shower isn;t too stressful- just call a restaurant and have them set up a room for you with a fixed menu (we did soup and salad in the back roomo of a cute restaurant for my best friend for like $14 per person and it was great)

    And not to sound rude but why the heck aren’t your BM’s hosting your shower? Isn’t that like pretty much their only duty???

    Are you sure that she’s planning to host it at her home? If I were in her shoes I would host it at a restaurant where you live, for sure. I’d just talk to her openly about it. I’m sure she would love to do this for you and would definitely be willing to host near you, if that hasn’t crossed her mind yet.
