Baby Shower Packages
Baby Showers have made their way across the pond and are fast becoming a popular tradition for expectant mothers in the UK. Originally this kind of celebration was called wetting the baby's head and was celebrated after the birth of your first child. This was primarily an opportunity for the father to celebrate with friends over a few drinks.
?However, this is no longer the case, and mothers now rule the roost with gaggles of their friends gathering around them to celebrate the imminent birth of their child. Gone are the days of high tea and quaint conversations, nowadays Baby Showers require an added panache and The Great John Street Hotel in Manchester offers just that...
Mummy Mocktail Class
canapés, cocktails and cakes
Book your cocktail and canapé baby shower at Great John Street and let our in house mixoligists show you how to make your favourite classic cocktails with all the variations just to your taste. More importantly we will show you how an expecting mother can still enjoy the glamour of a refreshing cocktail without the alcohol in our ‘Mummy-Mocktails’ making and tasting master class.
The expectant mummy will be offered 3 exotic Mocktails, packed full of fresh fruit and essential vitamins and minerals for the baby (including calcium, fibre and folate) which are aptly named:
- Bump on the Beach
Friends can also opt for the Mocktails or enjoy the original alcoholic alternative made just the way you like it, all served with a chef’s selection of canapés and cakes.
