Birmingham Event Venue Offers a Budgeting Tool for a Baby Shower

Hosting a baby shower may seem like an intimidating in a lot of ways, but the cost should not be a major concern. The costs can be sorted into just a few buckets.

They include:
Venue Rental
This will be a large portion of your total retirement party cost. You can significantly reduce the cost of a venue rental if you hold the party on an “off night” such as a Sunday, or Monday through Thursday. Venues charge much more for Friday and Saturday nights. We have VERY low rates for weekdays…in fact they are too low to publish so… call us!

Food
Since Woodrow Hall does not “force” people to buy “our” food, you can save a huge amount of money by having your own caterer or even asking attendees to bring in a “hot dish”. We can provide chafers and coffee and tea making machines as a part of the rental fee. This will reduce the cost of rentals as well as food costs making them virtually zero for the budget line! Woodrow Hall can provide food for a very low cost if you do choose to have us arrange for the food. Ask our Director for her advice!

Decorations
Everyone wants at least a modicum of decorations. But, with a beautifully appointed venue, the need for decorations decreases significantly! The Magnolia Room has natural beauty with beautiful window treatments, colorful (you can set the color) up-lights to accent the space and large wooden beams accenting high ceilings. We also have a selection of centerpieces at a modest charge to save you even more money. You will not need to rent linens for The Magnolia Room at Woodrow Hall as we have furnished it with hand made wooden antique tables that do not need linens.

Entertainment
The games you choose are the entertainment. While you will need some simple prizes, there are hundreds of games you can find on the internet at no charge.

Invitations
The only other item you may choose to budget for are invitations, but you can purchase a generic invitation for just pennies, or since you can use phone, email and other media, this can actually be free!

So, there you have it. Basically 5 costs to budget for. And remember that if you have each guest help supply one or more items, bring in your own food and use our decorations, you can have a really memorable baby shower for a very low price!
