If you're planning a baby shower for a close friend, sister, sister-in-law or coworker, consider hosting it at Forklift & Palate at Spooky Nook! Whether you're planning a traditional ladies-only shower or a casual cocktail party for men and women, Forklift & Palate can help.
Forklift & Palate is part of Spooky Nook Sports, conveniently located to Manheim, Lancaster and Lebanon. Wherever your guests are traveling from — whether it's central PA or somewhere else — they can get here easily. We'll work with you to help pick out the menu, the right sized space for the shower and any special requests or needs. We offer a full-service bar in several of our spaces and can make tasty mocktails for the mom-to-be.
You may be looking to reserve space because your home can't accommodate a lot of people. We understand that. But don't worry — Forklift & Palate has spaces large enough for a big group.
If you're feeling a little stressed about planning the shower, here are some tips and things to keep in mind:
Games are a favorite activity at a baby shower along with the mingling, eating and opening gifts. Guests can decorate onesies, write down a piece of advice for the new parents or play gift bingo. During gift bingo, you cross off a space on your card when the mom-to-be opens a specific gift. There are usually small prizes for guests who get bingo.
Look no further for a venue to hold your gender reveal party. These types of parties are newer and separate from the traditional baby shower. Usually, parents plan and host the party instead of a close friend or relative.
Like the name implies, the parties center around sharing the sex of the baby. Parents typically do this in a fun and creative way, like cutting a cake that has blue or pink frosting, opening a box of balloons or breaking a pinata with confetti indicating the sex of the baby. Our private spaces are perfect for these types of get-togethers, too!
Whatever you have in mind, we can help you plan the perfect baby shower or gender reveal party! Contact us today to discuss the specifics of your event.
