Second baby shower
I have an 19 month old daughter and I am due with another girl in 6 weeks. My mom and sister are dying to throw me another shower, but I'm afraid people will think it's tacky. We really don't need anything for our second child, but I do like the idea of celebrating this baby as well. How can the invitations be worded so that guests know that gifts aren't expected?
Thanks for your etiquette question. I think a second baby shower is a perfect way to celebrate your new baby on the way. A baby sprinkle would probably be the best type of baby shower to use, since this is a second baby and you do not need much for supplies. No matter how you word the invitation, you probably will still receive some gifts at the baby shower just because it is hard to show up empty handed at a baby shower. :)
Here is a poem that would work great for a baby sprinkle. You can change the bottom line of it if the gender of the baby is known.
Pins, Diapers, Bottles Galore
(Mothers name) & (father) are having one more!
Big (sister/brother) has plenty to share
This is a "sprinkle" to show we care.
Please join us to celebrate the baby due
We still don't know if it's pink or blue!

Congratulations on the baby on the way and good luck with the baby shower!
