As time goes on, people are investing more time and effort into baby showers. However, we realize that can be stressful, especially during a pregnancy. Our smaller venue, The Coop, fits up to 54 guests and offers an excellent venue for baby showers. In the off chance that you want to host a larger shower than that, our pavilion can hold up to 200. However, most guests will choose the smaller venue as it’s more fitting to the event.
There’s plenty of beautiful scenery around you as well. The rolling hills of Hershey are on full display at our venue and our fire pit area allows you to relax and take it all in.
We’re here to guide you along the way and make the event setup as seamless as possible, but we’ve also included some tips below should this be your first baby shower.
-Host it around 6-10 weeks before your due date.
-Keep the guest list fairly intimate. Close friends and family are the recommended invites.
-Gift opening brings about a couple of options. First, you can elect to go the route of a traditional gift opening, where each gift is opened in front of guests. The second option is a “display shower”. This is the most popular option when the guest count is large. For this, the gifts are brought unwrapped so that everyone can see what you received without having to spend an hour, or more opening them.
-The party does not have to fit a normal baby shower theme. It can be a relaxed party, a formal party or anything in between. Consider your audience, but also consider that this is essentially your event, so make it what you want it to be.
-Always send a “thank you” card, even if the guest says they don’t need one
