I have about four people (mom, SIL x2, and a friend) generously all wanting to assist in planning in a shower. Can any of you recall how much was spent on your showers? I don't want anyone to feel like they are going overboard. My hope is to have this at a restaurant with a party room or something similar as many of the planners are from out of town and our own is quite small for hosting.
Re: How much did you spend on a baby shower?
invitations $200 (I ordered them custom online with diaper raffle cards and books for baby cards)
raffle/game prizes $60ish total
hall $75 + $50 deposit which we will get back if we leave it clean
center pieces: a friend is making
decorations: an aunt is taking care of with $250 budget (what is left over will be used toward food)
food will be the biggest expense and we are doing as much of it as we can ourselves. I just want apps and picky foods and maybe some salads and pasta/pizza. nothing crazy. I've hosted more people at my home and made things like that myself and I have a bunch of people helping me.
I'm having fun so far. it's a halloween/witchy shower. hubs and I got married in salem on Halloween 2019 so it's kind of our thing lol
