    I would not find it rude at all to b invited to a baby shower that the expectant mum organised under any circumstance, but especially yours. Enjoy!

    I don't think its rude at all, as long as you are very ok with it in yourself, wont make comments to people about you HAVING to do it etc. Then i think its great, i would prefer doing mine myself actually, having all the control.

    I see nothing wrong with organising it yourself.

    With such a large age gap and having a different gender, I think it would be lovely for you to celebrate it.

    I didn't get the opportunity to have a baby shower (had my DS 9 weeks early), but if I did have a baby shower I would have organised it myself. I think it's easier that way, and I don't think it's bad etiquette at all!

    NAW thanks guys!
    Shirleysmum that's so sweet of you! : )

    CrazyCool - I prob would prefer it this way..im a graphic designer / event mgr for work.. so I have a squillion ideas of what I would like and would end up taking over (or trying really hard not to) if someone else did it anyway. So its prob just easier this way. I am happy to be doing it. I just wasn't sure if that was a weird thing to do.

    I played with some wording on the invites.. cause a lot say 'hosted by..(insert friend)' or 'join us in honor of (mothers name)' these would be odd seeing as I am doing it myself.

    So far I have this -

    Please join us for a
    BABY SPRINKLE

    Baby smiles & giggles galore
    Steven, Vanessa & Flynn
    are welcoming one more!
    Sprinkle baby Poppy Seed with love
    A light shower is in store.

    Celebrate with Vanessa and Flynn over high tea.

    then details of when and where etc

    I found the cutest little coffee shop that does high teas after hours. Hopefully its not too expensive.

    That sounds lovely op!

    I didn't even know you weren't supposed to organise your own shower? I threw my own shower, nobody thought anything of it.

    I can't take full credit.. I morphed a few invitations I had seen into something that worked well for us.
