Bridal & Baby Showers
The Caldwell House is a full-service bed and breakfast inn, but did you know that we host bridal and baby showers, as well? Bridal showers are usually planned and given by the bridal party; baby showers are usually given by close family and friends. Often, the people who give the shower are amazed at how much work it can be, beginning with the selection of a date, the planning, the ordering of a cake, food and other items, all up through the cleanup. Showers are a lot of work and can be exhausting for those who actually put on the event. The Caldwell House can help! One call to the event manager is all it takes. Caldwell staff will order the food, set it up, set up tables and chairs and help in the coordination of the event. For an event that even the person in charge of the shower will enjoy, consider The Caldwell for a memorable experience. And when it's over, Caldwell staff will take care of the cleanup.
For a unique and beautiful setting, choose the West Garden Pavilion as an outdoor setting for the shower. Tables and chairs are provided, as well as dinnerware, glassware and linens. One call is all it takes! 337-909-0050.
Couples Baby Shower
Times are a-changing! Traditionally, baby showers were given for the mother by her female family and friends. Now, with the role of both mother and father taking the responsibility for the care of the child, couples showers are becoming popular.
A great deal of thought should go into the planning so that the guys don't feel like they're just being tagged along by the women to go where they will feel awkward. It's probably not a good idea to have the guys in the TV room watching a game and drinking beer while the couple is opening presents. Careful planning will help the father of the baby and his friends feel as comfortable as the ladies. Keep your guests in mind as you choose the invitations, plan the games and select the food. Make sure several men attend in addition to the father of the baby. Go easy on the pink and choose the party favors carefully. Have the couple open the gifts together and allow for plenty of food. Plan your theme carefully, as well.
The Caldwell House has hosted several couples' events, from couples' showers to engagement parties to family and class reunions. Our house caterer will provide the menu of your choice and our beverage service provider will provide you with a good selection of beer, wine or mixed drinks.
Think outside the box and plan carefully for an event you both will enjoy as you wait for the arrival of your baby.
