So I need some etiquette advice... I mentioned that a couple of dear friends of mine are going to host a baby shower for me. I have been slightly uncomfortable with the idea since this is not my first baby, but have pretty much gotten over that since it has been almost 6 years since Bryn was born, this baby is a boy and I live somewhere totally new where there will be no overlap (except family) in who had to suffer through my first pregnancy with me! That being said, the question is whether or not it would be appropriate for the shower to be held at my house. All neurons in my head familiar with Emily Post scream "no", but I am not sure if it is actually "improper" or not. My friends want to host a brunch and I have the roomiest dining and living area to put people in and they asked if they could host the shower here.
Will Miss Manners haunt me forever if I have the shower at my house if I am not the one hosting it?
