For a place to have it, what about fire house or where
I live we have a small VFW that rents out theirbuilding. That way whatever ya have to pay for the
rental of building would be a tax deduction. Also they
would have the tables and chairs so ya don’t have toworry about that either.
For the food, the covered dish idea is good, but
also, ya could just do lunch meat and chips, and makejugs of kool aide for drinks.
The dollar stores are also great places to buy
stuff for the shower. If ya had extra money right now,ya could look for valentine discounts for party favors
Hope these ideas might help ya.Later,
