Celebrate the upcoming birth of a well-loved family member or friend's child by throwing a joyous baby shower packed with games, food and more. If you live in or near the Tulsa, Oklahoma, area and are looking for a venue for this special kind of party, you will find a variety of elegant and festive options to choose from.
Large Event Venues
Banquet halls and other similar event venues provide the space and staff necessary for a large shower with many guests. Tulsa's Palacio Party Hall (thepalacio.net) is a conveniently located option that is just off of Interstate 44. With the ability to serve up to 225 party guests, the Palacio provides customized food services and staff for a larger-sized baby shower. Another local choice is the Ti Amo (tulsacelebrations.com) banquet facility. This Italian-style catering venue actually has two locations in the Tulsa area, with south and downtown sites. Although the hall caters to smaller parties, it has the capacity to seat up to 600 shower guests for an all-out baby blowout.
An outdoor, natural setting compliments any spring, summer or early fall baby shower. If you are looking for an outside venue for this special event, a local park is an easy-to-manage option. Tulsa area park options allow you to plan the perfect shower and rent pavilions, picnic areas and even barbecue pits. With over 130 citywide parks, the baby shower party planner is sure to find one that fits the specific event needs from location to price. Reserve picnic shelters for up to 75 guests at parks such as Mohawk, Helmerich, Hunter and Veterans. Additionally, the parks department provides 20-by-20-foot canopy tents for rental during larger parties and outdoor events.
A community center provides enough space for a spectacular shower. The city parks department operates several different centers around the region to host parties and events. For example, the Central Center has space for up to 200 guests as well as smaller rental options. Other, non-city, community-type centers to host your baby shower at include county park venues such as the LaFortune Park Community Center, the Chandler Park Community Center and the South County Recreation Center.
Local restaurants provide an array of party options for almost any baby shower. From low key places that serve basic menus to more elaborate eateries with elegant menus, you are sure to find the ideal space at one of Tulsa's local establishments. For example, the Melting Pot (meltingpot.com) fondue restaurant provides guests with a pleasant space and interesting dining choices, the Wild Fork (wildfork.com) offers a menu packed with natural, fresh ingredients and the Daily Grill (dailygrill.com) restaurant provides space for private dining party events.
