The simple answer is YES! Why not include the mother-to-be in the baby shower planning?
This is a very special time for her and unless the party is a surprise, it could be a very wise decision to ask the mom her preferences on:
Asking her preferences on a few things doesn't mean she has to be involved in ALL the planning. You do not have to give up control and bow to her every whim, it just means you are being nice and want her input on a few ideas you have. The end result is you want her to be happy with you and pleased with the outcome of the shower you gave hosted for her.
