Where to Have a Baby Shower
Hi. Can anyone recommend some good locations or restaurants for
a baby shower for about 20 people (plus or minus), preferably in
the Oakland / Berkeley / Emeryville area. I have consulted the website. Thanks.
I've attended some great baby showers in restaurants in the
Oakland/Berkeley area. They all have amazing food and were very
accommodating. To meet budgets, you could pre-select a menu of
items for your shower guest. Ginger Island on 4th Street - they
don't have private rooms, but we had a whole section of the
restaurant cornered off for a shower of about 25. Garibaldi's on
College Ave - They have a private room and there were about 30
of us. Good luck!
My baby shower was held in the restuarant at the Claremont Hotel
and it was absolutely lovely.
I am trying to find a place to host a baby shower in SF for
approximately 20 people. Ideas?
We recently had a wonderful baby shower/tea at the San
Francisco Ritz-Carlton. It was held during their regularly
scheduled tea time, but a section was set aside for the shower.
I don't know the cost, but they did validate parking...which is
a big savings!
My friends just threw a baby shower for me at La Table
(3640 Sacramento St.) in SF. They have a beautiful back
room that is perfect for a shower and the service was
wonderful. I'm sorry I can't comment on the cost since I
don't know how much it was but I can say it was the perfect
place for a party!
We had a baby shower for a friend at the Sheraton Palace for
tea. It was very fun, and apparently a fairly popular destination
for such events. Good food, good teas, and easy for the hostesses.
The setting could not be more spectacular.
And just off the Montgomery Street Bart station, so no parking in
Lovejoy's in Noe Valley is a spot for high tea. They host
plenty of showers there for very reasonable prices.
You might try Lovejoy's Tea Shop on Church Street in Noe
Valley. I have seen other showers being hosted there and it
looks like it would be lovely. The food is wonderful and the
decor is very charming and quaint. The only drawback is that
they may not be able to host 20 people-- it's definitely worth
checking though. Good luck!
Maybe a tea? You could go all out at the Garden Court in the
Sheraton Palace on Market St. or at the Ritz Carlton. Both do
lovely formal tea services. Or if cozy and comfy sounds better
there's Lovejoy's Tea House on Church.
One of my favorite little restaurants in the city is a french
place called L'Olivier it's on Davis Street. They have a couple
of rooms that would fit your group and be private- a garden
room in the front and a larger room in the back. They do a prix
fixe menu for large groups that is very well priced for the
city. Give Christian or Ghee a call at 415-981-7824.
We held a baby shower for a friend at Il Fornaio, near Levi
Plaza. The service and room were wonderful.
Ask for the back patio at the restaurant, ''the Magic Flute''
