Host the Perfect Baby Shower

It’s officially your turn to host a baby shower! Excitement is in the air and now it’s time to start the planning process. We’ve got you covered with tips and tricks to host an entertaining and smooth event.

First, get with Mom-to-be to choose an ideal date for the shower. Sit down with her to talk through the guest list and remind her to make a registry. Additionally, encourage her to invite those closest to her and pick a date that’s at minimum a month out. This gives your guests plenty of time to receive their invitation. Then, talk through what Mom’s vision is for her shower. She may provide direction or tell you to have a blast getting creative.

Speaking of invites, it’s time to choose the baby shower theme! This can be a simple as a color palette or as elaborate as a movie theme. If running wild with the shower theme is fun for you, get as detailed as you’d like. If not, put the emphasis on something else like games or food.

For the location of the shower, it’s a good idea to check in with Mom-to-be about where she feels most comfortable. Baby showers are often hosted at event venues, in homes, and restaurants. When you host a baby shower on the Emerald Coast, there’s nowhere better than the Bay House™.

We offer a beautiful indoor space as well as a gorgeous outdoor area with an unbeatable waterfront view. No matter where you choose to host the baby shower, make sure you have enough seating and space to keep you and your guests comfortable.

Need another reason to visit us at the Bay House™? Get on board with the latest trend of the “babymoon” and turn the baby shower into a girl’s trip! Directly across the street are the charming¬†Cottages by the Bay. These historic, renovated cottages host up to 36 adults. Relax under the oaks or walk to nearby HarborWalk Village.¬†

For the day of the shower, make sure to have someone take pictures to record the precious moments. Additionally, ask another guest to play secretary to record all of the gifts received. On that note, it’s important to keep things moving along during gift opening. Help Mom out with trash and recycling receptacles, scissors for ribbon cutting and anything else she may need. Lastly, have fun! These memories are sure to last a lifetime.

We love to celebrate events of all kinds at the Bay House™. Contact us today to book our Destin waterfront event venue!
