As I am now expecting baby number two, I am starting to think about baby showers! I didn't have a traditional baby shower with my first so I really want to have something beautiful and special for my second.
Like many of us, my townhouse is not the best option for hosting an event with a whole heap of girlfriends and possibly their babies. So I am looking around for venues across Brisbane that can host. Preferably venues with air con, platter options and gorgeous decor.
Paw Paw Cafe in Woolloongabba has a seperate dining area that is available for hire which is perfect for a baby shower. The space is a bali chic garden room with styled decor and furniture.
