Whether you think of baby showers as classy parties or casual get-togethers (or something in between), there are so many choices when it comes to venues. When planning a baby shower, you also have to consider quite a few other factors, including interior style, location, and budget. On top of all that, you also have to arrange for catering, furniture rentals, and other potential equipment, all while making sure there is adequate seating and space for your guests (not to mention, your pregnant guest of honor).
Use Peerspace to easily browse through dozens of unique venues for the baby shower that you’re planning. Baby shower venue ideas in Houston range from colorful cafes to darling mansions. There are even rooftop patios—and even a horse ranch—available in this eclectic mix of spaces that you can book by the hour. So, without further ado, check out a few of our favorite locations to host your next baby shower in Houston.
1. A creative Southwest Houston cafe covered in stunning murals
This adorable space is best described as crafty and colorful. If the mother-to-be is artsy and creative, this is one of the most vibrant baby shower venue ideas in Houston. With seating for up to 40 guests, you can invite plenty of friends and family. Beverages and food—like delicious bubble waffles—are available for purchase at the venue. Feel free to reach out to the host for questions about bringing outside food or drink.
Since this venue is commonly used for DIY crafting, why not make your party a creative outlet for guests? Bring rope and artificial flowers to make your own macramé creations. Alternatively, encourage guests to make their own necklaces, earrings, or bracelets with a jewelry craft party. Clean-up is included in the rental, making this pretty venue an easy place to have fun (and leave with no worries).
2. A bright spa space near Cinco Ranch
Switch it up and host a baby shower at the spa. This customizable venue can be used as a relaxing pre-date before the party. Tables and chairs are included with the rental, as well as dining plates and utensils. The space is also minutes from popular Houston restaurants, so you have many options for catering or a sit-down meal.
Contact the hosts to find out rates for the spa services. Or, use our Concierge team to have a professional team prepare arrangements for your event.
3. An Old West experience on a 75-acre horse ranch
Saddle up and head out to Humble, Texas for rustically memorable baby shower. This is one of the most scenic baby shower venue ideas in Houston given the property’s sprawling acreage. Activities on this ranch include horseback riding and bonfires. Note that this venue is completely outdoors, and the host can provide tables, chairs, restrooms, and even a stage for any special speeches. And let’s not forget the incredible views! This working horse ranch can accommodate up to 100 people within its 3,000-square-foot venue space, and it’s actually only a 20-minute drive from downtown Houston.
4. An outdoor space with an accompanying studio apartment
Make your baby shower a cozy outdoor haven on this cute patio in Greater Heights. What really makes this space special is the intimate ambiance. Many have used the space as a yoga venue, which can also be a great entertainment idea for your party. Peerspace’s Concierge team service can help you find a yoga instructor or caterer for your baby shower, as well as equipment or anything else you may need.
Tables, chairs, and Wi-Fi are included at this 2,000-square-foot space. Plus, the outdoor lights give the patio an extraordinary glow at night.
5. An Instagrammable space with a stocked coffee bar and greenery wall in Pasadena
Keep the positive energy flowing at this bright space with tons of natural light in Pasadena, Texas. Guests will have a blast posing in front of the greenery wall, and you’ll love that the reception hall comes with seating for up to 60 people. Among this space’s other amenities are three buffet tables, 10 guest tables, and a kitchen. This baby shower venue also has highchairs and up to 20 miniature chairs.
6. A Pearland paradise with ample parking
Comfy furnishings, a complimentary prep kitchen, and adjustable mood lighting? Sign us up for this aesthetic space! As far as baby shower ideas in Houston go, this spot is one of the most modern.

7. A four-story townhouse with a rooftop terrace over Midtown
This 3,670-square-foot venue is an incredible deal for its amazing amenities and prime location. With an open floor plan, this lovely house boasts hardwood floors, several balconies, and a backyard. And, on top of it all, there’s the sought-after rooftop terrace that shows off incredible views of the Houston skyline. The space also comes with tables and chairs for up to 21 people, as well as a kitchen area for caterers. Talk about a classy affair.
8. An elegant historic mansion in Galveston
Although this venue is a bit of a drive, as it’s tucked away in Galveston, we couldn’t leave out one of the most elegant baby shower venue ideas near Houston from the list. Look through the stunning photos of the 3,000-square-foot house and you’ll see why. Admire the large Southern-inspired porches, carriage house, and solarium. Amenities include tables, chairs, Wi-Fi, a dressing room, kitchen, and restrooms.
Have guests dress in themed costumes for a fun twist on a traditional baby shower. Or, make it a fancy occasion and host your very own tea party or birthday party. Keep in mind: Peerspace’s Concierge team can make finding a caterer or entertainment a breeze.
9. An ultra-modern luxury home
This sleek home is an ultra-chic place to celebrate the mother-to-be in your life. With gorgeous high ceilings and an open-concept floor plan (along with great outdoor views), this venue can accommodate 50 guests and is the perfect kind of place to pamper Mom and guests alike with a little bit of luxury. Gather around in its foyer/living room, and don’t hesitate to spill out into the backyard to enjoy some fresh air on the sprawling back patio.
This private home sits on 4,500 square feet and offers a secluded place to shower your mom-to-be with a really relaxing afternoon. While this venue offers everything from a sauna to a hot tub and even a “party barn,” there’s no denying that the property’s biggest draw is its beautiful backyard pool. Plan your baby shower for a weekend afternoon, and relax poolside, enjoying sun and great company.
If you’re planning a smaller baby shower and want to venture out “on the town,” this eclectic bar setting, including two outdoor cabanas, is the perfect venue. In this colorful space, each cabana seats 10-15 guests and hourly rental costs are applied for a bar tab that accommodates those drinking—perfect for more intimate groups looking to add more of a laid-back, party-vibe to their baby shower experience. (Bonus: if you’re going for a Jack and Jill baby shower, the men and the women can each separately enjoy their own cabanas right next to each other!)
12. A neon-themed patio
Similar to the cabanas in #11, this same eclectic bar setting also rents out their colorful, tropical-themed front patio, which is a vibrant and exciting setting for an outdoor baby shower! Enjoy dedicated bartenders and cocktail waitresses as part of your rental and enjoy a converted vintage trailer bar as an amenity of the space. This is yet another fantastic venue for a Jack and Jill baby shower party where a couple wants to join forces and celebrate their big Milestone as a larger, combined group.
