A friend of mine is throwing me a baby shower but because their apartment is so small they want to have it in our home. This isn't a problem and I think it will be alot easier for her to plan this way. The question is if we should invite neighbors?
We are not really close with the neighbors across the street from us. We wave to each other but neither of us goes out of our way to go over and say hi. We were married on our property over the summer but kept it small with close family and friends. We didn't invite the neighbors across the street because it didn't dawn on us until the last minute that it was probably really rude not to invite them. We ran into them at the community picnic and the first thing they did was compliment us on the decorations and setup from the wedding. I felt horrible for not thinking of them then being too embarrassed to go over at the last minute and say "Hey! I'm a clueless rude neighbor please comeover and join us!"
So now we're planning another event right across the street from them. Granted this one will be inside and there won't be a giant tent in our back yard this time. I don't want to appear gift grabby but at the same time I'm afraid this is a repeat of the wedding. If it was you would you invite them?
