Whether you’re planning your best friend’s baby shower or arranging your own baby party, having a few great baby shower ideas in your arsenal is never a bad idea. In this post, we’ll be taking a look at some of this year’s best baby shower ideas, just to give you some guidance.
What are some of the best baby shower ideas?
While you can go big with the food and the gifting ideas, the first step in organising a great baby shower is picking the perfect theme. Here are some of the themes we’re totally obsessed with:
Onesie painting party
Allow your guests to create their own fashion garments for your baby. By a bunch of plain onesies, fabric paints, paint brushes, and some clean sponges. Then have your guests decorate the onesies to their hearts’ desire.
A high tea
An elegant high tea is a great way to celebrate a new baby’s impending arrival. Ensure you decorate the scene with china tea sets, finger sandwiches, and traditional “tea” goodies such as scones, cream and cheese. You can serve a range of teas and send the guests home with some party favours in pretty containers.
A “ready to pop” party
These types of baby showers are crammed full of food and décor that basically shouts out POP. You can jazz up the theme by including some fizzy drinks, popcorn, soda pops, and even popping candy in the mix. Get creative and decorate the party in either pink or blue, depending on what gender the baby is.
Sprinkle baby shower
Decorate the party scene with sprinkles of water made from cut out pieces of cardboard. You can also cut out some cloud shapes and have them hanging around the venue, featuring “droplets” of pink or blue that freshen up the scene.
To help an expectant mom welcome her little man into this world, why not consider a sailor-themed baby shower? Ensure the part colour palette features a lot of yellow, blue, and red. You can serve snacks in tin cans, mimicking Popeye’s tin of spinach, and send the guests on their way with some sweet memories also contained in tin cans.
Vintage newsprint party
Don’t know the gender of the baby you’re planning on welcoming into this world? Then why not consider using a black and white, vintage newsprint theme? It’s chic, understated and can have as big of an impact as even the most vivid of colours can!
