"Hosting" bridal shower

My sister (MOH) was talking to me about planning my bridal shower, asking for addresses, dates that would work for everyone, etc, and she mentioned that the only place really big enough to accomodate a shower would be my house. 

I'm fine with the concept of having it at my house, but I don't want it to come off looking like I planned it or threw it for myself.  What would you think if you got a shower invite and the location was at the brides house, you know?  Renting a venue is completey out of the budget and just not possible, so I'm not sure what else we could do. 

Any suggestions?

    I think it's fine. Most people mention the host on the invitation and have them RSVP to them. Just try to step back during the party and let your sister do everything and I think it will be pretty clear that you are not hosting.

    That is fine to have it at your house, on the invitations make sure they RSVP to the host your MOH. Just know you won't be doing any work during the shower even though its your house!

    As long as invites say to have the RSVPs going to your sister, and she runs the shower, I don't see anything wrong with it.

    Yes, it's fine. Your sister is hosting so let her handle all the details.
