Tomorrow my mother and I are throwing a baby shower/brunch type thing at my house. I am basically doing everything--cooking, cleaning, inviting, etc. I don't have but maybe two or three close friends in town. I moved from my home town a couple years ago. I will have a "Welcoming the Baby" party down there in May after Emma is born, and I know a lot of people will show up to that one. But here, I only have two maybe three guaranteed guests. Not including my mom and niece. I have a kick ass brunch menu...Quiche, sausage balls, pineapple cherry cake, lime punch, fruit dip and fruits, and muffins. I invited a total of ten people, but like i said, I dont really REALLY know most of them. I am also buying some little onsies and paint for the friends to paint on for Emma. I'm just nervous, because I'm not really sure if it's all worth it.

I'm glad it went well! It is always better to just have your close friends there any have fun and not worry about it! I wish my baby shower was soon! I keep going to the store looking at stuff and I am just super excited!

It went alright. We didnt make big servings of food (except for the huge punch bowl still in the fridge) but those three friends showed up. We ate and talked and gossiped while they painted on some onesies for Emma. It was sweet and glad i got to catch up with them. Hope yours goes well!(: thanks for the support!

Thank you for that lol. I agree with lauren, I would totally attend yours as well. As for not that many people showing up, maybe, if that is what ends up happening, it was suppose to be that way. Might be more fun with the close people you have rather then the people you dont really know? Yes, an hour or so isnt bad, and thats great you have activities, they sound like allot of fun. You should post how it goes tommorow =-) I wish you the best of luck, have fun!!

I know exactly how you feel my husband and I just moved here a couple months ago and I don't know anyone.....I am actually not even doing a shower here because I would have to do it all and I don't think it would be worth it because I don't really know anyone. I am actually going home to have a baby shower. Don't get discouraged though because even if not that many people show up at least you have lots of yummy food to eat! I would come it sounds like you have some fun activities and food lined up!

Thing is.. I dont really think all these other people i invited are even going to show up. So it'll just be those few people. But yeah, I know what you mean about it getting weird. Its just going to last an hour or so. Not long.. Its going to be kind of formal. Like a sit down brunch type thing. I hope it doesnt get weird at yours though, maybe it'll be laid back since there's beer...lol. good luck!(:

I know what you mean. There are some people that are coming to my babyshower as well that I do not really know. I have a guest list of about 10 people not including, myself, husband, daughter, mother in law and my one best friend. I dont really know these 10 people and im super nerviouse about how it will all go. We are having girls and guys come so there will be wings and beer there for the guys, and other stuff for the girls. I just dont know what to think of it all as well, im nervouse becuase I dont want to be standing there and have it get weird. Like the weird silence or wanting to try and bring up a conversation with these people that I dont know and get a weird look. Also I dont want to look rude or like im not having fun if I stay quiet (Im actually also really really shy) So yea allot of uncertianty.



I think the way we have to look at it is, its for and about the baby, so maybe just concentrate on that, if things get weird maybe excuse yourself to the bathroom to recollect yourself of think of what to say. Also how long is your shower going to be? I wish you the best of luck, and at least you will have your mom, neice, and your three good friends there, so if things go weird with the other ppl, you at least have them to fall back on =-) So I would say its all worth it =-)
