I am very happy to be throwing a baby shower for my sister in law coming up. In the last year she has thrown her sister a baby shower and I a bridal shower. Both so special and beautiful that both were the best I have ever been to. My family loves throwing parties and paying attention to the details.
I have been planning and saving for the shower for months and have had so much fun planning it. Her sister has asked to co host the shower with me and I agreed. I recently had her over to show her what I have so far. She threw words around like elegant and suggested to serve shrimp and lobster. However when I asked her about budget and suggested splitting the food, flowers, and paper products only she says she can only spare $100. I have already spent over $300 on decor alone.
I know for a fact my husband and I make far less than them all but have been very happy to make sacrifices to save the money to make a shower just as special as I received. I don't want to cause drama or hurt feelings but am I wrong to rather host the shower myself than co host and pay the bill? They are sisters and I am just a sister in law I don't know what to say or do. I do know I don't want my sister in law to know about the drama she deserves this shower and I am very happy to throw it for her. I don't want her to think for a second otherwise.
