I know people disagree with me on this, but I don't like to open presents in front of everyone and I usually get really bored during that part of a shower anyway. So, for my shower I wanted more of an open-house/display shower where guests can bring their gifts unwrapped and display them on a table. We will provide cards so people can identify which gift is theirs (if they want to).
My question is how to write the invites?? My three sisters are throwing me the shower, but asked me if I wanted anything specific. This is really my only request, so I'm trying to give them ideas for invitation wordings instead of making them figure something out.
Has anyone seen anything cute and tactful???
I can only seem to find slightly rude/inappropriate ones, such as:
...please go green and do not wrap,
because all we do is throw away that crap...
...to spend more time with mommy-to-be,
please wrap gifts in cellophane for all to see...
I don't want to "mandate" that the gift needs to be wrapped only in clear cellophane or that no wrapping is allowed. I know some people will still wrap their items, which is fine, but I'm not doing a big gift opening.
