I am just curious about different conventions. I recently offered to host a baby shower at my house for an old friend, imagining that it would be an afternoon gathering of 15 - 20 women, some cucumber tea sandwiches, scones, and tea. Now I am informed that the guest list is 50+ and people won't come unless we rent a banquette hall and serve a full, formal meal with flower arrangements and favors. Is the baby shower morphing into a second wedding? I think this is nuts...am I out of date? What kind of showers have you seen lately?
