Hello! My sister is having her first child (a girl) in November and we are planning a shower for her in September.
However, my sister is what she likes to refer to herself as a "Shower Snob". She doesn't like the whole idea of a shower (she can't explain to me why). She does want to have a co-ed "get together" and have people bring gifts, but she doesn't want to open them in front of her guests. (I told her she has to suck it up and deal with it.) She doesn't want to play games (which is fine with me!) - just eats and gifts.
My question is what do we call it if it isn't a shower? A celebration? A celebration of what? She wants classy & elegant - not typical shower - no baby "theme".
Also, is there any way we can get around the opening of the gifts?
Any advice/help is greatly appreciated!
