How to plan a baby shower in Melbourne? 

At Tagvenue, we like to make your life easier. That’s why we’ve listed our very own savvy tips that are helpful in the process of searching for a dream baby shower venue. With them in mind, you’ll find the perfect spot in no time! So start reading now! And happy planning!

  • Pick a date - Picking a suitable date with the mum-to-be is crucial when planning the baby shower. Establishing a date 2-3 months before the due date will allow your best friend the opportunity to really relax and enjoy this special time. Also, you’ll have an array of venues to choose from and you will be able to pick the perfect one that offers the most in your price range. 
  • Choose a theme - Baby showers are a great chance to celebrate the upcoming arrival and choosing a theme close to the mum’s heart can be super thoughtful. Pink, blue or something completely individual that will make the event more personal. Many venues will allow you to put your stamp on things and can even help with ideas and decorating! 
  • Think numbers - Setting up a guestlist can really help with planning, themes and budgets! Booking a large venue for only a small number makes no sense. If you want your budget to stretch a little further, in this case, consider a cosy high tea with close friends and family for this special occasion.
  • Set a budget - It’s easy to get carried away and spend more than you initially assumed. Drawing up a budget will give you an idea in what price range you should look for the perfect venue. You’ll be more careful with your money, and this will lower your chances of overspending!

FAQs about Baby Shower Venues in Melbourne

How early should I book a baby shower venue in Melbourne?

Just like any other venue, you should book one around 8 to 6 weeks in advance. This will give you plenty of time to pick the offers that you like, contact venue managers and decide which space will suit you best. If you wait until the last minute, you can have much fewer options to choose from. Also, the hire fees might be higher.

Can you recommend some baby shower venues in Melbourne?

There is a huge range of options in Melbourne! But some of them stole our hearts straight away, like the Terrace at Secret Garden Bar that offers laid-back, but still stylish and lovely surroundings. They will blend well with any baby shower ideas you’d like to incorporate. White Room at Aviary Hotel  is a private function room with fresh, vintage flair that is perfect for a cocktail-style baby showers.

Can I decorate a venue for my baby shower?

Yes! However, it will depend on the venue type you’ll choose. Restaurants and bars usually allow decorating the space with some balloons, candles and flowers. However, if you’d like to create a unique setting from scratch, make sure to discuss it with the venue manager at the beginning stages of your inquiry.

Who pays for the baby shower?

Traditionally, the person who has been selected to host the baby shower is responsible for all the costs. That person can be a close relative, friend, or soon-to-be mom herself. But it’s common for other people to contribute as well, such as parents, groups of friends, siblings, etc.

Booked Entire Venue (exclusive hire) at Artfulyoga Gallery
Had an amazing experience hosting our gender reveal at Artfulyoga Gallery! The venue's charm and ambiance set the perfect tone for the celebration. Neha was absolutely incredible—super accommodating, detail-oriented, and made the whole process stress-free with very little notice when our initial plan fell through. From the moment we spoke we could tell we were in the best hands. We would highly recommend Artfulyoga Gallery for any special event! Thank you so much Neha for such a memorable experience.
Katarina D.
Booked Frontside Food & Wine at Frontside Food & Wine
Loved the location, flexibility and strong communication when planning the event. Ann Marie was responsive, accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. The food compromised of canapes, substantials, dessert and woodfired pizzas - all which I could not fault.
Lily D.
Booked Terrace at Secret Garden Bar
We booked the Terrace and the sunflower decoration and set up was the main attractor for us and delivered exactly like in the photos. Customer service was good and prompt reply.
