Ok, so this might be a bit strange but here it goes: My wife is Japanese and a non-native speaker of English and she's due in about two months with our first child. I am trying to find a baby shower location on behalf of my mom who lives out in Jersey. 6-10 people and would like to be as budget conscious as possible. Any ideas for me?

  1. With such a small group you'd be bettter off contacting a favorite resto and working with the Mgr RE: table decorations. Cake/food, etc.
    Asian food or Sunday Brunch usually gives you the best bang for the buck

    1. I didn't end up going with them in the end, but Home/Made in Red Hook is really cute, small and quaint. Great food and people. Sweet Melissa in Carroll Gardens also does baby showers in a private back area that they have as well...they were a little more $ and were hard to nail down, but the space is perfect for a baby shower. Good luck!
