Baby Showers in Swindon
Baby showers are booming in the UK, alongside gender reveal parties, naming ceremonies and christenings.
Irrespective of mum to be, grandma, auntie or friend, organising the event, each year the baby shower gives birth to more inventive ways to celebrate the upcoming arrival of a child.
Here are our top three;
1/ Afternoon Tea
Quintessentially British, the afternoon tea is the perfect sedate celebration for a soon to be mum. With the introduction of prosecco and gin afternoon teas, guests too will celebrate in not having to succumb to an alcohol-free celebration if they choose not to. And all will be spoilt for choice with a rich selection of options and venues across Swindon.
TGt Swindon recommends:
- Blunsdon House Hotel
- Swindon Marriott Hotel
- Restaurant 56
- Cast Iron Bar & Grill
- Cricklade House Hotel
- Rudi's Bar
- Kelmscott Manor
- Chiseldon House
- De Vere Cotswold Water Park Hotel
- Lydiard Park
- The Grey Herron
- Jennie's Kitchen
2/ Games afternoon
When it comes to pregnancy, a games afternoon takes on a completely different form. Suggestions range from baby food tasting, the dirty nappy game and guess the baby from the picture.
Sure, to be a fun-filled afternoon of entertainment, with plenty of laughter thrown in for good measure.
3/ Spa afternoon
A pampering baby shower is a great alternative putting mum to be needs first, while providing a relaxing afternoon for her guests. Take advantage of an at-home visit or spend the afternoon in a spa. Either way, everyone is guaranteed to feel relaxed, with no dirty nappies insight.
4/ Private dining experience
With the foreseeable future predicted to be a long stretch of sleep-deprived nights, nappy changes and feeding. The mum to be can be forgiven for looking towards a little luxurious dining treat at Mario's. Where she can enjoy a private supper room with close family and friends.
Below are a few of our favourite private dining locations;
