i'm having a baby shower for my 3rd child. to be honest, I dont really want to have it but my best friend stuffed up my 2nd baby shower that she was hosting (or was supposed to at least!! she didt even turn up!!!!) and reallllly wants to make it up to me this time round. She hosted my 1st baby shower and it was really successful and she's hoping to do the same this time around.
anyways, as it will be our 3rd child, as you can imagine we have everything (and it will be our 3rd girl too!!!) so we dont need clothes or toys or really anything. i need about 3 things in total to be honest and they all range from $70-$100 each.
I dont want to tell people not to buy anything (to just come empty handed) as i reckon a lot of them may be offended and would buy me something anyways, so i was thinking maybe a baby shower wishing well???? what do you reckon?? that way, no matter how small or big it is, i get what i want - and no more clothes/towels/blankets/toys etc...!!! And, they dont have to say who its from if they dont want to.
i'm only having about 20 people come - half are my family (who would buy me something, baby shower or not), and the other half are my closest friends who all have kids so would totally understand.
do you think having a wishing well is inappropriate??? or would it be acceptable because its my 3rd child.
All ideas, suggestions, thoughts, advice etc is greatly appreciated!!
