Mother giving daughter-in-law a baby shower improper etiquette?
Is it in poor taste for a mother to give her daughter-in-law a baby shower? Daughter-in-law and all invited live locally.
I was told that the closest relative to host a shower would be an aunt (except in extenuating circumstances ie. daughter-in-law lives in foreign country, visiting briefly) or risk being perceived as one with poor etiquette (desperate, 'money-grubbing', etc).
