  1. I love the idea of doing a baby shower at the zoo! In that case, I’d invite whole families instead of just women. The more the merrier! How fun it would be to hang out and explore the zoo after celebrating the new baby!

  2. The Sweet House on Fulton and Lafayette is a beautiful historic mansion in the heart of Grand Rapids that is a beautiful place for a baby shower! They have many different rooms to choose from depending on the size of your celebration! Highly recommend ❤️

  3. I’m looking for a space to rent for about 100 people, 40th birthday party for my daughter, I will have my own food and alcohol, decorations and clean up. I can only afford about $200-250, it’s a surprise party for her. I will need time to decorate, Set Up food and clean up. Time needed for actual event is 7-8 dinner and 8-1 for party and appatizers. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated .

  4. Coopersville Farm Museum and Event Center is a fun place for baby showers and other special events! There is a kids area, kitchen, restrooms, air conditioning, a stage, and tables and chairs for up to 125 people! Small and large spaces available. A home style, country feeling fills the 12,000 square foot facility with many interesting exhibits for guests to explore before or after the special event. http://www.coopersvillefarmmuseum.org Located just minutes from Alpine Avenue…halfway between Grand Rapids and the Lakeshore. (exit 16 or 19 on Interstate 96) Just a mile off either exit in Downtown Coopersville near the Coopersville and Marne Railway and Coopersville Area Historical Museum.

  5. Go to Renew Mama Studio! It is a beautiful chic boutique yoga studio with hardwood floors and big windows. The place is decorated so cute and has a plenty of room for your and your guests. Amanda the owner is so friendly. They offer TONS of services for moms in addition like prenatal yoga, prenatal massage and health coaching for moms to be. I would definitely recommend her studio for a baby shower!
