When deciding on the location first have to decide on how many guests you will be inviting. If there are a large amount of guests it may be the best option to hold the event at a rented place. However, if the shower will be small and intimate, a smaller setting such as at the host’s or mother-to-be’s home.
Additionally, you will want to make sure that the location of the event is easily accessible for the guests to attend. It would be unwise to choose a place that is located hours away from the mother-to-be or the other guests.
Many people find that holding a baby shower outside is the perfect solution for having a baby shower. Having the shower outside can allow the party to accommodate a high number of guests and often provides a nice comfortable setting that could be easily adjusted. An outside location could be a local park or the backyard of the shower host.
If choosing an outside location, it is important that a backup location is planned for as well. This way if there is rain or other inclement weather, alternate arrangements are available allowing for the shower to be moved instead of being cancelled.
