Baby Showers & Gender Reveal Parties

A baby shower is the perfect time for family and friends to spend some time with the expectant parents and ‘shower’ them with gifts, love and good wishes.  Why not get the girls together, play some silly baby-themed games and share your top tips with the mother-to-be? Our friendly events team will be more than happy to discuss your ideas for decorations, catering and anything else you have in mind for the event.
