A friend of mine has graciously offered to throw me a baby shower. It's pretty normal around here for showers to be held at someone's house, and she offered to host it at either her house or mine, whichever I prefer. I'm trying to figure out which would be best.
The shower will be in May or June, which typically means nice weather here, and her house has a larger outdoor space (deck, patio, and yard). Also, I kind of like the idea of "leaving the mess behind" at her house... but I think that's kind of awful of me! Having it at my own house would mean more work for me in terms of making sure everything is nice and clean and keeping my slightly feisty dog under control with people coming and going, but also means I wouldn't have to transport any gifts or anything. Thoughts?
