Becoming a mother is one of the happiest, momentous and most celebratory times of a woman’s life. Baby showers have come a long way since the days of traditional planning for this timeless occasion. Whether the gender of the baby-to-be is still unknown or not, there are plenty of adorable and creative themes to follow and demonstrate through decorations, party favors, food, and customized baby shower invitations.
You can find party supplies and baby invitations that match your theme fairly easily from online stores like PaperStyle.com. You might even find ideas beyond these five that fit your best friend’s personality!
1. Anchors Ahoy
A very popular baby boy party theme is a nautical-based or pirate shower. Decorations used in shades of blues and white paired with sea creature cakes, salty finger foods and boating-oriented backdrops make for a timeless event. Ahoy, matey!
2. Pretty Pink Princess
For a baby girl’s shower, choose bright pinks, frills, and lace to celebrate the glamorous lifestyle of being a natural-born princess. Specialized pink baby shower invitations can be sent out with orders of a pink-only dress code, for both men and women.
This type of decor can be aimed for both a boy or a girl, with cupcake cutouts, cupcake shaped “diaper cakes” in all variations of colors. Yellows, greens, blues, and oranges can keep it gender-neutral in case the mommy and daddy to-be have decided to keep it a secret. Don’t forget the real-life cupcakes, of course.
4. Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
Another popular gender-neutral theme for modern baby showers is based on the classic children’s song. The parents-to-be will surely have a heavenly time with adorable galactic-oriented decorations complete with stars, moons, and a full coverage of twinkling string lights. Turn the timeless children’s song into a game of musical chairs.
Maybe skip out on the lions and tigers, but with a few simple decorations and a big-top cake, this carnival themed shower calls for a big celebration. Perhaps renting an entire backyard tent is a little out of budget, but bright and playful circus-based decor can turn any party into a grand tent affair. Lollipops, a popcorn maker, and (if you can bear it) a clown that shapes balloon animals for the kiddos, all make for an unforgettable, grand time at your Big Top Baby Shower.
