Restaurant Baby Shower
My sister and I are hosting a shower for a friend at a restaurant. My sister wants to include "lunch provided" on the invite whereas I think it's tacky and I feel that by our names listed as the hosts, people will get the idea that WE are paying for lunch.
Our Answer :
Thank you for your etiquette question. You are correct in feeling that it is not necessary to list that lunch will be provided on the invitation. By listing the restaurant location on the baby shower and choosing a time during lunchtime hours, it will be the assumption of your guests that lunch will be provided at the party.
Your sister is most likely worried that guests will not want to go to a baby shower if they are not sure who is paying for the lunch. This is a valid concern for some people.
Baby shower etiquette rules state that the hostess is responsible for paying for the food. The party is the hostesses’ gift to the mom to be, so all costs associated with throwing the baby shower is the hostesses responsibility.
I feel that is it best not to put that "lunch is provided" on the invitation, since it is stating the obvious.
I hope that helps. Good Luck planning the baby shower!
