My mom has generously offered to throw me a baby shower for my first child (due in August). I'm sure she will do a great job, since she and my grandmother did an amazing job with my wedding shower. The problem is I think the guest list will be really tiny. The shower is in my hometown (a few hours from where I live now), and a lot of my closest friends are now scattered across the country. Plus, my family is really small, and my husband's family lives in another city. I would be surprised if there were more than 10 people at the shower altogether, and there may very well be fewer than that.
Has anyone ever attended or had a shower this small? All of the ones I have been to have been at least 20-30 people. Will a tiny shower even work? I would love the opportunity to see some friends and celebrate my pregnancy, but I don't want to make my guests uncomfortable or feel bad for me.
Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me!
