8 Beautiful Baby Shower Venue Ideas in Milwaukee

Traditional baby showers take place in a dear friend’s living room or backyard, among the couches and lawns you’ve seen a million times. Baby showers tend to be predictably boring, but there is hope! One of the best ways to sprinkle some excitement into the baby shower tradition is to hold the party at an unexpected venue. Take inspiration from these creative baby shower venue ideas in Milwaukee, all available to rent by the hour through Peerspace.

And if you need event extras including furniture such as chairs and tables, catering, or audio-visual gear, Peerspace’s Concierge Service works with trusted vendors who can bring items straight to your shower venue, leaving so much less for the hosts to worry about.

Expecting a large group to celebrate Mama’s expectant status? This restored vintage firehouse can accommodate up to 250 standing attendees in the renovated engine bay. Imagine the baby shower themes you could bounce off these firehouse walls!

The dorms and outdoors area are useable for the shower, and there’s even a kitchen for your caterer’s needs. The location is convenient for everyone to reach—it’s situated just a few blocks off Interstate 94 near the Brewers’ Stadium. It’s genuinely one of the most beautiful baby shower venue ideas in Milwaukee.

2. A wonderful urban workshop

If the parents-to-be have a flair for the unusual, this 125-year-old workshop full of funky props would be a fun place to host their baby shower. The rental fee for the flexible venue includes use of the available inventory, a setup fee and a cleaning fee, and use of the kitchen and some cookware.

A photographer and moving assistants are available add-ons. The space can hold 75 standing guests and 50 seated people, with a variety of seating arrangements possible in the 1500 square feet.

3. A flexible events space

Versatility is the name of this West Allis venue’s game. The host encourages guests to take creative control of the 1000-square-foot flexible space, and jazz it up as desired. Use of tables and chairs, arrangeable as desired, is included in the rental fee. The walls are a deep neutral blue, and the floors are shiny wood, so the venue is basically a blank slate for your baby shower. With a bit of pizzazz and creative vision, this nearby space could be a beautiful venue to hold your Milwaukee-area baby shower.

4. A quaint bungalow abode

Minimalist much? This adorable, unique bungalow might be one of the most beautiful venues in all of Milwaukee for your baby shower. Giant caveat—while the home is about 1,000 square feet in size, the hosts only permit a total of five people (not including the baby, of course!) in their venue at a time.

So, if you’re considering having the world’s most wee party for the wee one, check out this Bay View site, decorated with only the most tasteful and hand-selected items. It includes high-speed internet, lots of electrical outlets, and Instagram-worthy backgrounds throughout.

5. A multipurpose production space

This photography and videography production studio would make for a fun place to hold a Milwaukee baby shower for up to about 20 guests. It comes complete with tons of A/V gear and domestic props, so you could do a photoshoot at the same time as those guess-the-due-date games we’ve all come to know and love. It also features a kitchenette so you can serve up cake or whatnot.

6. A fully furnished creative studio

Appropriately named, “The Space” is a small Bay View venue with a huge assortment of creative applications, including a fabulous intimate baby shower. It’s not a very big space, clocking in at 700 square feet, but it can comfortably accommodate 15 guests—and their gifts.

Three backdrops are included in the rental, and the huge windows permitting a south-facing city view really set this venue aside. As an added perk, there is a small stage for mini performances, in case kid-song karaoke or baby charades tickle the new mom’s fancy.

7. A photography studio with historic elegance

Chase the baby shower yawns away by hosting the traditional event in this historical mill, now converted into an elegant third-floor photography studio. Equally serviceable as a party venue, the 3000-square-foot studio is situated in an old building on the Milwaukee River in the town of Grafton, just 25 miles from central Milwaukee.

The interior of the studio is spacious and minimalistic, with exposed beams on the ceilings and poured concrete floors. Light floods in from the windows on all sides, and the walls offer excellent backgrounds for any pictures you might take at the event. There is furniture onsite, a balcony overlooking the water, and a full kitchen for your use. This is by far one of the most beautiful venues for your Milwaukee-area baby shower.

8. A blank-slate industrial warehouse

If you’re looking a space to hold a shower where you can host a bunch of folks and design the décor any way you see fit, check out this industrial warehouse photography studio in Glendale, about 15 minutes from the center of Milwaukee. The business park venue is bare-bones and vast, accommodating up to 60 guests and their baby gifts.

In this space, you could host a baby shower dance-off, large-scale indoor group games, or even a video shoot-themed party. It comes complete with a 40-foot cyclorama wall for an infinite backdrop, and the giant garage bay doors can accommodate vehicles for added flair.
