I am starting my own Baby shower business where I take care of the shower. Exactly like a wedding planner but on a WAY smaller scale. I will be having 4D utrasounds done during the showers as an option as well. Now I am just needing to know what is the average cost of a baby shower. What is the average you all will spend? I will be doing low key showers all the way up to BIG extravagant ones. I want to make all prices reasonable, I just need advice :) Thank you!!!

Good luck you need a photographer also, I say that b/c that is what I do and that would be a great thing to have at a shower... Just an idea!

 Maybe $2-300 for a basic shower? It will go up from there depending on all the extras.

I spent upwards of $500 on my little sister's shower in March of 2012. :-D

We were in nothern Arizona, so that would equate to costing more here in Florida.

Congratulations on starting your own business.  It is an exciting and yes sometimes  a scary time.  
There are so  many different kinds of showers, different themes, that there is really no average cost.
You need to do your research and cost out different kinds of showers from the basic to the extravagant. Obviously some costs will be fixed such as the location and then there are costs associated with how many people such as food, drinks, napkins, favors, etc.  So I would start with getting prices on hall rentals, restaurant event rooms, caterers, bartenders, servers, and you will be able to come up with a cost per person and from that you can add your markup.  Hope this helps.

During the holidays it does. The rest of time it's hit or miss.
