Baby Shower At My House Is This Too Tacky

Everyone exept two people coming to my shower are from out of town. There will only be about 12 people at the shower, so is it weird to just have it at my house? My sister is planning it and sending out invitations. it just seems easier to do it here because I know my friends who don't live here will want to come to my house and see it anyway. What do you all think?

I don't think it's tacky at all. It's what works best for your guests. I wouldn't think twice about receiving an invitation for a shower at the person's house, even if I lived in the same area. I hope you have a great shower!

i don't think there's anything tacky about it. If it works best for you, I don't see a problem. Just as long as it's not you playing host and waiting on people, it's your shower, they should be waiting on you.

Not at all!! My aunt from out of town threw my shower and we had it at my apartment. It went really well!!

Not Tacky... it would only be tacky if you were having the shower for yourself. It will be nice to be in the comfort of your own home. Just make sure you don't feel like to have to be the server or hostess for the day. Maybe your sister will help you clean the house too ; )

I dont think it is tacky at all we just had a BBQ with all of our friends for a baby shower and that was at our house the only down fall is that you have to do the cleaning ;)

I don't think it's tacky. I kind of wish that my shower was being thrown at my apartment! It will make it a lot easier on you, too, as you won't have to transport everything home and lug it into the house.

My shower was organised by my sisters and best friend but they all live in apartments and since there were alot of people invited we had it at my house. I just made myself scarce when it came to tidying up! ha.

Absolutely not tacky at all! My mom had my baby shower at my house since I had the room. We had roughly 50 people and nobody elses house could hold that many. The best thing about don't have to worry about how to get everything home! And as K8 said, make yourself scarce for cleanup. Besides, it's your shouldn't have to clean. I know, easier said than done!

okay, good! Thanks for the input. We are still planning on doing it at my house. Makes more sense-now I just have to clean like crazy before everyone comes!
