Restaurant Baby Showers
I am hosting a baby shower at a restaurant is it rude to ask the guests to pay for their meals?? How should I word that in the invite???
Thank you for your question. Restaurants do have a few pros and cons to hosting a baby shower. With a restaurant location, you do not have to worry about the preparing the food or cleaning up, which is a HUGE plus. Depending on the restaurant, you also might not have to worry about purchasing centerpieces or decorations.
On the downside, you are responsible to pay for the food as the hostess. To help save money, you can look into arranging for a set menu with the restaurant to ensure your costs are set for each guest.
If your budget does not allow you to pay for your guest's meals at the restaurant, another option could be hosting the baby shower at a house, where your costs are greatly reduced.
I hope that helps. Good luck with planning the baby shower!
