Where’s a good place to throw a baby shower in Boca? If you’re a mom, you probably get this question often, especially from your friends who don’t have kids yet. The good news is there are several amazing venues in our area to host one! And in all different budgets. I have a few of my recent favorites to share, ranging from the traditional to the crafty and creative baby shower.
Create a baby bouquet at a FlowerBar
Field of Flowers Boca Raton (West Boca Place, 8177 Glades Road, 800/963-7374) has taken curating beautiful blooms to the next level. They just launched a DIY FlowerBar as a chic new way to blend crafting fun with fresh flowers and friends—and fabulous refreshments.
FlowerBar party guests are set-up with everything that’s required to craft your own arrangement, from floral shears, vases and flowers to specialty trimmings and a custom box to transport DIY floral creations home. The Martha Stewart-esque workstation setting enhances the cheerful interior of Field of Flowers Boca Raton, where pops of color from fresh flower displays and walk-in coolers punctuate the bright, light-flooded space.
The FlowerBar is composed of oversized island workstations topped with striated marble countertops. Comfy stool-like seating accommodates small or large parties, up to 16 participants at a time. I’m a big fan of having an “activity” for shower attendees. And the fact that you can bring champagne (or sparkling water) and food (they also provide some in your party package) is a huge win in my book!
Sprinkle mom-to-be at The Waterstone
Baby showers tend to be rather large affairs when you’re having your first child, but your second calls for something a little more intimate—a sprinkle if you will! My favorite mini private dining room in Boca happens to be at the Waterstone Resort in Marina (999 W. Camino Real, 561/226-3107).
Even though your guest of honor won’t be drinking it, the glass wine wall is beyond impressive and looks stunning in photos. And, the best part? Boca Landing handles all of the catering for your group of 20 or less.
Have an adult tea party
This venue will actually bring you up to Delray, but TeaLicious Tea Room (4995 W. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach, 561/860-8325) is worth the trek to host an adult tea party for your mom-to-be and her lady friends and family. Between the vintage cups and saucers and sweet décor, the private room is beyond charming.
They also have a full bar, so guests can sip on champagne along with their Earl Grey. The TeaLicious menu offers a variety of teas (of course), sandwiches, crepes and a few signature items that are sure to be a hit at your next baby shower. Plus, you can ask all of your guests to wear hats or fascinators as part of your shower theme. Perfect for photos!
