Do you think this is rude?

A surprise family get together has been organised for my great-aunt this afternoon. It is at her dd's home. I was thinking about making some cakes to take along as a kind gesture. Sometimes my kind gestures aren't see that way by other people so I am just wondering if it's the right thing to do. Her dd is organising everything and I don't know if she would be offended if I turned up with something.

Seems like a lovely idea. How could it be minconstrued? Surely its a common thing to take something when you go to someones house?

I would call and ask. She can then say "Oh No!!! I have everything under control" or "Blimey yes - i'd really like that"... Then it's her choice!

However, I would never see someone turning up with a gift of any sorts as insulting.

I'd just turn up with cakes - I've done that at parties before and noone has taken offence! Not sure how they could really!

Hard to see how she would be offended, but personally I would call and ask specifically what she would like for you to bring. She might have enough desserts but would appreciate another appetiser or side dish for example.

Whereas I would ring and say - 'Would you like me to bring some cakes?'. Be specific about what you're prepared to do. I would hate to feel lumbered with something I'd never have offered to do

Make them, take them and if it isn't eaten I'll CAT you my address.
