Weird request for a babyshower

Dh keeps talking about this baby shower like the party of the century. I can care less for now with all the things we have going on in the next month like moving. Dh feels I left him out of the wedding planning and pretty much he had no say and just signed the checks over...lol Now he wantshe t run of the baby shower but still wants me to do certain things (rolling my eyes). My mil passed away this past May and dh brought up having the shower at his great-aunt's church banquet room, because that was the last place she attended before she got sick. He is talking about the rehearsal dinner for the wedding was there but only 20ish people attending so the majority of the shower guest would not know or understand why. He also wanted a memorial table at the shower which to me is going overboard. I feel the shower mood would be dampen with a memorial table. We did a memorial tabl for the wedding and that was enough. Anyone that passed since the wedding we need to honor them in a different way and a babyshower is not the place imho.

a memorial table does sound like a lot, but maybe you could do something smaller that will still honor his mom's memory and not dampen the mood?  maybe use her favorite flower, or use her recipes for snacks, or maybe have some sort of angel item around to represent her.


here are some cute angel figurines!

Haleighb I really like the favorite flower or recipe idea. Something subtle and not to blunt like a table :-) Thank you for the angel links, I can do something with that. His mom collected figurines.
