Showers and Receptions
The Smith-Byrd House is a great place to host your bridal shower or baby shower or luncheon. Showers can be set up in a buffet-style arrangement using Hostess sets, (an oblong plate with an indentation for the cup) giving the guests the opportunity to mingle in style. We offer assorted finger sandwiches, mini scones (lemon curd and clotted cream, of course) and tea. So, when you ask, "where are the places to have a baby shower," please think of us.
This does not preclude you from a sit-down event. You can combine your gift-giving with a Princess or Queen's Tea. Just take a look at our Group Menu to see if that might work for you. If you have any questions, please give us a call (334) 365-1459
Call for Details: (334) 365-1459
