|The details are POTLUCK, Bring a Frozen Meal for the mom, and bring a bead for the birth necklace. For example, If I were invited , I could make a Huge batch of Mac and Cheese, some for the potluck and some for a frozen meal.
Your friend gets a freezer full of meals for postpartum, you get Food help.
Odds and Ends:
1. We get a flower bouquet. (Grocery stores have nice ones)
2. We provide the drinks (usually a nice punch, some water, lemonade, iced tea- all inexpensive)
3. No decorations other than the flowers.
|I am going to go with the "Just say NO" too and SHAME on your friend for "bulldozing" you into it! Does she know things are tight for you and that the third friend has not shown up at yours? What friend in their right mind would do that to another friend????|
Just say "no".
Call her back and tell her that now is not a good time for you to be throwing any kind of party.
If she is rude and keeps pressing you to have the shower I would be blunt. Just say I am not really good friends with XYZ, I don't have the money to throw a shower and I am not forcing my parents to host a party for a bunch of people that they don't know!!!!
Any cheap punch recipes, decorating ideas, food ideas???? Any ideas would help
I'd tell her that you couldn't do it. Sorry, you just can't.
Or you could do what the sleazy lady at my old job did and collect money from everyone for gifts and then keep it yourself.
