Indoors or Outside? How to Choose the Location for a Baby Shower Party
Baby shower party needs to be well organized down to the tiny details for it to be successful. Didn’t have the perfect venue for a baby shower party yet? Then, you came to the right place because we can help you decide on where you should do it – indoors or outside.
When looking for a location for the baby shower party, here are 3 things that you need to consider. First, know the number of guests. How many will show up for the event? You wouldn’t want to squeeze 50 people inside a small room wouldn’t you? Entertaining ten guests in a hall wouldn’t be smart either! So, put this on the top of your list.
Next, take into account the weather during the party. You wouldn’t want the rain to ruin the outdoor baby shower party that you painstakingly organized would you? It’s definitely a mood-killer! And last but not the least is, consider the budget for the baby shower party. We have lots of baby shower ideas and themes that can fit your budget here.
When you’re done with these essentials the next step is to choose a baby shower venue. Baby showers are traditionally held in the future mom’s home or in the host’s. It makes the guests more relaxed and gives the feeling of intimacy and comfort. Yet, there will be the after-party mess that you have to deal with.
To make life easier for you, here is a list of venue ideas where you can throw a memorable baby shower party.
Local Tea Room
If you will hold the event in the afternoon, a local tea room would be an ideal choice. It’s cozy, private and usually quiet. The future mom can enjoy having pleasant conversations and fun with friends and family members. While you, the host, will not worry about the food and refreshments to be served. You can just decide on the baby shower decorations and bring the baby shower cake to the venue.
The restaurant reservation depends on the number of guests coming in. It can be a large table or the whole venue altogether. Some restaurants will let you decorate the interior as you like, some will not. For the latter, you might be able to choose the decorations from the designs that the restaurant offers. If you will not book the whole restaurant for the baby shower party then skip the games and other activities that will disturb other customers.
Community centers are cheaper than tearooms or restaurants. They are perfect for throwing baby showers because they have many meetings rooms that can accommodate any number of guests. You can decorate the venue according to the baby shower theme and perform games and activities for a more enjoyable baby shower party. Yet, you will have to provide not just the decorations but the food and drinks as well.
The club house has several private rooms available where you can hold a baby shower party. Unlike the community center, the club house offer food and drinks for this kind of event. Just give them a call or drop them a visit to learn what services they offer, the prices, and other info you will need to know.
For a girl-only baby shower composed of the closest friends of the future mom, a hotel room is perfect for a stay-over party. It would be fun to relive memories of younger days and share experiences of becoming a mother. The hotel staff will take care of everything: the decors, the food, and the drinks. All you have to do is have fun with the mom-to-be and your friends.
A baby shower party in spring, summer or early fall can be thrown outdoors. There are so many options for a wonderful baby shower to choose from. It can be a brunch in the garden, a picnic in the park, and so on. Just make sure that there will be sufficient sitting options and access to the toilets. To avoid unpleasant rain that will ruin the baby shower party, set up the event in a terrace or hire an events agency that provides not just the food, drinks, tables, and chairs but the tents as well.
So, you see, there are many alternatives for baby shower party locations. You just need to choose smartly whether it will be done indoors or outdoors. Good luck on your hosting job! We know that the mom-to-be and her guests will have a fabulous time!
