    I kinda did with my mum... But thats cos im a control freak and like things done particular ways haha!
    I helped her think of games an i though of the favours for everyone aswell and helped her make them.

    i also printed off the menus to go with the invites so ppl could pick food if they wanted to eat.
    my mum made in invites, but i watched hahaha!

    i wasnt there when she set up the room tho and she did a lush job with banners, balloons and table decs l.


    hope u have a fab day hun :) Xx

    I'm doing my own, just at my house. Also having one at my mum's in Reading but my friend is helping with that one.
    Im planning a few simple games, cava and cake for food with some sandwiches probably. Hoping it's sunny and we can sit outside. Not expecting many people as I don't have that many friends who live close enough. Was stressing but just going to hope people are happy to sit and chat mostly!! Xx

    You're lucky to have organisers Vic! I've not lived here all that long so a bit short on local friends, luckily a few are travelling to come. I just realised I need to order some decorations etc so having to finalise numbers, Looks like about 10 people, might be a squash! Hope people don't expect too much!!!

    I know, I am so overwhelmed at all the trouble they have gone to to sort this for me.

    I think 12 are coming to mine, not sure if they will all fit but we have garden chairs haha.

    Im sure no one will expect anything and you will have an amazing time :)

    Thanks Vic, I'm sure you will too. Some people have offered to bring food plus I have another one two weeks later in my old home town at my parents and my friend is helping organise that, bless her. And my step daughters are coming to that one xx

    I don't think I'll have a baby shower. I've a few great friends here but they all don't know each other. They will all come and visit us once the baby is here so it will be great to see them then :)
    I completely understand when people plan their own baby shower! I would also prefer knowing what's going to happen and just plan it the way you like it. xx

    No-one had asked about presents so no idea if I'll get any. I don't mind really, lovely for people just to come. Although it would be nice, as long it's nothing hideous! ;-)
