Looking for some advice on what everyone thinks about throwing your own party.
I'm an only child and most of my close friends live out of state. I have some good friends nearby but am not sure any of them would offer to host a shower (plus 2 of them are preggers themselves!) I'm not in a financial bind (i.e. a shower would be just a guise to get gifts) but I'd love to have a shower just so friends could celebrate our soon-to-be new addition with hubby and I.
Traditional etiquette says it's tacky to throw your own shower. What do you think and/or what did you do?
