Event Venue Downtown
There are so many amazing venues downtown (in any city you live!). These tend to have a more modern feel with great sound systems, lights, and photo opportunities. These will be beautiful, but will probably be a higher price. The earlier you can book these venues, the better. Make sure to let the venue staff know your estimated guest count so you look at venues that are the right size for you.
Birthday Party Rental
Birthday party rentals are spaced designed specifically for birthday parties. These spaces could be stand alone buildings or connected to a restaurant or something fun to do. Most places that have arcades, laser tag, or even a Movie Theater is going to have a room or a space for parties.
Many nonprofits or businesses have a multipurpose room of sort that they are wiling to rent out. If you check out a YMCA or even a church near your home, many times they are willing to rent the space out for a much lower price than a typical venue. The spot might not be as nice and you will probably have to add more decor, but the cost might be lower.
Finally, you can always host your baby shower at home or at a friend's house. If you are expecting less than 20 people, this is a great option! If you are expecting more than 20 people, it might be too crowded. One of the many benefits of renting a venue is that you do not have to clean your house after!
