Is it proper for me to host my daughter's baby shower? If not held in the home, I may have a luncheon in a hotel or restaurant.Our Answer:
Thank you for your etiquette question. It is perfectly fine for you to host a baby shower in honor of your daughter. The only person who is not allowed to host the baby shower is the mom-to-be.
As far as etiquette goes, any other family member or close friend can host the baby shower.
I hope that helps. Good Luck planning the baby shower!
Is it ok for the mother of the mother to be, to host her daughter's baby shower?Our Answer:
Thank you for your etiquette question. It is totally fine for the mother of an expecting mother to host a baby shower. In fact, it happens quite often at baby showers. Years past, it was considered a money grab for anyone related to the expecting mom to throw the baby shower. Currently, the etiquette rules state that anyone except the expecting mother can throw the baby shower.
I hope that helps. Good Luck!
Does a mother give her pregnant daughter a baby shower?Our Answer:
Absolutely! Etiquette rules used to be against any family member hosting the baby shower. But, those rules have changed and it is now totally acceptable for a mother to host a baby shower for a pregnant daughter. It is actually very commonplace these days to see a grandmother-to-be host the baby shower for her pregnant daughter.
I hope that helps. Good Luck with the shower!
