Need Ideas for My Baby Shower
I need a good cheap place that I can have my baby shower. My parents and in-laws live in Largo/St. Petersburg but all my friends are coming from Tampa. I live by the airport and thougth it would be central location for everyone that lives in Tampa. I have about 24 people. I thought about some different restaurants or hotels but need to do this as cheap as possible since I am basically paying for it. My mom is helping me host it but I dont' want the burden to be all on her.

We used to always have baby showers in our own homes or the home of our mom? That certainly is the cheapest way to go. Everyone would bring something (pot luck) and mom would provide the cake and beverages. Probably too old fashioned for today's families, but it sure was a nice way to celebrate the new baby coming.

D., I can't think of any place in particular that would be good for a shower. Hotels are expensive with their catering. Try to find a restaurant that would let you host it in between meal times and offer only h'ourderves or something light. Try the restaurants at International Mall or Lee Roy Selmon's across from the mall.
On the WAHM request, I have a business at home that has a special until Friday 6/15 that you can start your business for $1. I actually started my business for $1 also back in December and it has been great. I'm still working part time but mostly for benefits until the home business is big enough that I can afford individual benefits (especially until we have more children since maternity coverage is the most expensive).
Visit my website www.achievehealthygoals.com for more information. You can also contact me on mammasource or call me ###-###-####. You can get started in the business now and build it slowly at your own pace until you are home full time. No inventory or parties; it's all from your home on the internet and by phone. We work with a health and wellness company and just shop for healthier and safer products for our home. You may want to get more information just on the products since you'll have children in the house soon. All the products are non toxic and environmentally friendly. I look forward to hearing about your shower and talking to you soon about a business opportunity.

I agree about using someone's home, (even yours if you are up to it!) if possible. I had my wedding shower and baby shower at my sister's home and it absolutely wonderful. Very relaxing and inviting. Also, try having it in the afternoon; it is a great way to cut down costs because you don't have to provide lunch, just some snacks. Good luck and congratulations!
