Places for a baby shower

Have any of you thrown a shower somewhere other than a person's house? As you know, a friend of mine from PA is throwing my shower, so she asked if I knew of anywhere she could host it. I have no idea, as all the shower's I've been to have been at someone's house. I know she doesn't want anything that's going to be too expensive.

TIA!

Re: Places for a baby shower

  • Would you not feel comfortable having her host it at your house?

  • My friend had hers at World Golf Village, it was a little clubhouse (not the main one) that has a kitchen and it was really nice.

  • Some kind of clubhouse was my first thought also. If your community has one or you have a friend in a community that does they can be pretty affordable and then she can bring in outside catering.

  • We live in a tiny neighborhood with no clubhouse or anything.

    Ashlee, we are going to start our kitchen renovation the end of this month/beginning of next, so I worry it won't be finished in time. We may end up doing that anyway and putting off the renovation until July, but wanted to look at other options first.

  • Most little town have a town hall...have you looked into that? Or you could do a church hall...they are both generally pretty well priced and have the tables and chairs all ready to go :-)

    ...i'm quite bored today so if you want me to help google around you could shoot me a message of your exact location...i'm near fleming island

  • I'd be happy to volunteer my house if you need it, depending on when she's planning to have the shower, might be a little sketch since I'm due July 28. 

    I haven't been to any bridal/baby showers down here at anywhere other than a house, so I'm no help :(

    I'd be happy to sign as a community member if you wanted to look into one of the JCP clubhouses but I don't know what area of town you were trying to stay in. I think the JCP ones can be a little pricey compared to others though so if you know someone else in another neighborhood you might want to try there first. You can see the JCP rates here

    ETA: If she plans to serve any alcohol (some people do at baby showers, some don't...I've been to both) she has to purchase it through them, and I think you have to use a limited list of caterers. In other words, they may be a bit of a pain, but if you're interested just let me know. Smile

  • Mine was at the clubhouse of the condo complex (off of 9A and Baymeadows) that one of the girls throwing it lived in.  This time around we're doing brunch at Orsay :)

  • I would be willing to lend my name so she could rent one of the Oakleaf rooms. I rent them at least once a year for parties/showers. I can PM/email/FB you the details if you want. I believe the cheapest room is $75.
  • Not sure you want to travel all the way to the beach but my friend rented the Adele Grage community center for her sons birthday. It was $175. It is cheaper if you don't serve alcohol. It is in Atlantic Beach.
