Cheap Baby Shower Venues Nairobi/Free Places to Have a Baby Shower Near Me/Baby Shower Ideas in Kenya

  • A restaurant on a day or time when it is not busy. The restaurant will appreciate the business, i.e.,the food and drinks you buy, and might not charge anything for the venue. You can easily choose a restaurant that serves food and drinks within your budget so that the costs stay low. (Possible restaurant baby shower venues in Nairobi: Maxland Grill & Lounge on Waiyaki Way and Taidy’s in Upper Hill.)
  • If you or any of the friends and family of the expecting mother live in a compound or apartment complex with a club house or common room/area, consider what it would take to hold the baby shower there.
  • If any of the expecting mother’s friends or family has a large enough home, consider asking them to use their house as a venue. You can do your utmost to ensure that no other hosting duties fall upon them.
  • Nowadays, many residential properties rent out rooms on services such as TripAdvisor, AirBnB, and Booking.com. Consider contacting these properties to rent their common area(s) for a few hours. This is something I know establishments like Lake Breeze House in Kampala do.

Event Venues in Nairobi: Not-So-Cheap Baby Shower Venue Ideas in Nairobi

If keeping the budget low is not your primary concern as you plan a baby shower, then also consider…

  • a hotel room. A hotel room is very cosy, especially if you are inviting close friends and family. You can get as large and as nice a room as your budget permits. You’ll definitely have privacy! Furthermore, the hotel can provide you with decorations, food, and drinks, radically reducing the amount of work for you to do. Browse a list of possible hotels that could serve as baby shower venues in Nairobi here.
  • a microbrewery. This may not be a natural first thought when planning a baby shower because baby showers are usually alcohol-free events. Still, consider this: 1) microbreweries usually have very chic, modern decor; 2) they typically have areas for people to gather and meet; 3) they normally serve food; and 4) they already have tables and chairs so all you’ll have to bring are decorations.

  1. The truth is, I have never attended a bridal shower in my life. Those things are very intimate, and in my opinion for close friends, of course none of my close friends have gotten married or are even planning to. My only good friend who did, I wasn’t even present in Nairobi at the time, told me all she got were thongs and lingerie, which she doesn’t even use.

    The Knot has some really good tips, trust Mama to already have it book marked on my comp together with other wedding sites! The other link you provided on saucy ideas doesn’t seem to be working.

    1. Hi Mama,

      Thanks for letting me know about the faulty link – it has now been rectified.

      So I am not alone in having been to few/no bridal showers? I think it’s definitely a sign of the times. 😉

      I cannot imagine why brides would complain about having too many thongs or lingerie. Who can have enough of those???!!!!:-) A cousin of mine complains about that too – that all she got at her bridal shower were thongs and lingerie! Tsk, tsk.

      Now that the link has been fixed, check out the article for ideas that are saucy but go beyond underwear. Yes, The Knot is simply great!

      I hope all is well with you.

  2. Nice article. Enjoyed going through it. Also like the title of the blog “Ramblings about Bridal Showers”

  3. Been to a couple and am planning two in the next 2 months. From Sexpert, TZ Somo, videos to male strippers,personal confessions alot does go on. It is interesting how women open up easily especially after a couple of pints.

    1. Hi Gish,

      Welcome to ChickAboutTown!

      It’s true what you say – it’s amazing what a couple of pints can do for openness! 🙂

      So what great plans do you have for these two showers you are planning?

  4. For me, bridal showers are as diverse as the people who have them. There are those women who want the sex auntie to advise them about how to keep it spicy in the bedroom, and there are those who run away (very quickly) from the saucy side, preferring the chilled get-together. it’s more common for younger brides in their early twenties to want the “aunties”, but i’ve found that this is just to impress (or educate!) their girls. is it possible (in our “conservative” Nairobi) to have a mixture of the get-together with mothers, aunties and friends and the sharing of the sex advice?

    1. Hi Miss Taks,

      Welcome to ChickAboutTown!

      True dat, bridal showers come in all varieties. Which kind would you wish to have? (Tell us, so we know early! ;-))

      I am not so sure about the mix being able to happen. It would be a great thing if it could but very often I find the generations too squeamish around each other to discuss their relationships with the opposite gender openly, sexual or otherwise….which is a shame if you ask me. What great advice we would receive if our mothers spoke to us truthfully about their experiences with men. How many blunders we could avoid if only we allowed older, more experienced women to guide us through the minefield that are relationships. Well, we can only change this one individual at a time, right? First, when we are the young women in need of advice, then later when we are the experienced mamas with great advice to give, not so?

      Thanks for you comment!

      Biche
