I will be having a baby shower fairly soon i dont want to host it at home as parking may be an issue. I plan on having 25 people there. I was wondering if anyone knows of a good location to host... I was thinking about apartment complex community centers but i dont know of any that rent them out to others other than their residence.

If anyone knows please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

mrsb057 -Do you know anyone that lives in a Subdivision with a HOA? Most usually have some sort of Club House /Meeting Room.

What about a church hall?. Not a large church since they seem to charge too much. I'm sure most Church's are looking for extra income these days. I wouldnt think you'd have to be a member.

As far as an HOA Meeting Rooms / Club Houses there may be some that rent to those that don't live within the subdivision. But along with that may be a higher fee. My wife paid for her neice's then was paid back. No one ever knew. I know this may have been sneaky but money is money. If it was'nt rented then the HOA would have lost out.

Not to sound negative but we all know if we invite 100 people they all won't show up. We invited 100+ people to our Son's High School Graduation Party in 2008, approx 60 showed up. That's how it always seems. But at least you don't have to worry about running out of food. Those that don't or can't come will usually bring a gift before or after the baby is born.
*I can't remember anyone saying anything about having to walk a bit. Having something at your home can be a lot of trouble (cleaning up before, during and after) especially for big crowds and I would say 25 is. Just think about the money that will be saved as far as not having to rent a site.

Good Luck.

I wouldnt have a problem with having it here at my apartment but the issue is I hate this complex they have no parking what so ever and they are doing a lot of work near the community center also the gym is directly next to it and personally it smells like sweat when you walk into the area. My apartment is not suitable for 2 adults and a dog i cant imagine having 10-25 people in here. I was hoping that the house we are building would be finished by then but it doesnt appear that way.

I'm sorry I missed that you currently live in an apartment. Yes that would be a tough place to have one.
