If you’re planning a baby shower for a special mum-to-be, there is plenty to think about. Choosing the perfect venue is number one on the To-Do list – but getting that right means finding out exactly what your honoured guest wants from her special celebration.
She may want a cool and comfortable event, or she may want an edgy and chic affair. She might want healthy eats, or she may crave the most indulgent of food.
Once the specifics have been nailed down, it’s time to start organising and planning. After all, the lovely mummy-to-be has enough planning and organising to do of her own. It’s time to take the reins to find the most perfect of baby shower venues.
Luckily, Singapore has plenty of baby shower venues to choose from, with many offering great value baby shower packages.
What To Look For in a Baby Shower Venue
When searching for baby shower venues, there are some important elements to look out for. First up, a baby shower is usually best held indoors – in air-conditioned comfort, out of the tropical heat of Singapore. Another essential – for most pregnant ladies, at least – is comfortable seating.
It should also be easy for guests to mingle – no one wants a stiff atmosphere at what is essentially a celebration of new life! Lastly, a set menu or baby shower package can be incredibly handy. This cuts down on time spent selecting what everyone wants, and then the awkward split of the bill at the end of the day.
The Clifford Pier
Happily, The Clifford Pier ticks all of these boxes. Set within the luxurious Fullerton Bay Hotel, The Clifford Pier provides a delightful atmosphere and delectable treats, perfect for a baby shower celebration.
Beautifully appointed, airy and light, this charming venue occupies the space of the original Clifford Pier.
