Baby Shower Themes

babyshowerthemes

Baby showers can either have a theme or not. The choice to host a theme shower is up to the hostess. Having a theme has a few benefits, but it also has a few complications.

It makes it easier to plan games, decorations, the cake and to add extra flair and style to the shower by having everything coordinated. It lets the creativity of the hostess shine through because everything is pulled together in a visually obvious way.

The drawback is finding decorations and tableware depending on the theme. If you choose a theme that sounds like fun, you may find out that you’ll end up with basic colors for tableware and decorations because the graphics for your theme haven’t been put on to party supplies.

A middle ground is to choose a theme based on the party ware you choose. The design focus is taken care of with the plates and decorations, your job is to then come up with games and favors to compliment it.

Another option is to avoid a theme altogether. Choose what you like as far as decorations and party supplies, and choose your games according to what appeals to you. With this type of shower, your main coordination tasks will be through color. For example : if the plates you choose have a picture of baby animals, choose two dominant colors from the artwork as your balloon and streamer colors.

The bottom line is that a baby shower is a joyous celebration. You’ll have a great time no matter how you choose to present it! That said, if you decide to go with a theme the following pages have some tried and true (and some unique) themes for you to consider.

Couples Shower

This type of shower has been gaining popularity in recent years. It allows the dad-to-be to participate in the celebration, and lets the mom-to-be share it with him. The guests are usually friends of the couple, with the couples knowing both the parents-to-be.

Tea Party

The traditional tea party is perfect for a baby shower. From finger sandwiches and tea cakes to fine china cups, this lends itself wonderfully to the delicate theme of a new baby.

Pamper Mom

While the baby shower gifts are traditional (for the baby), the shower itself focuses on mom. She gets extra pampering with a facial, manicure and makeover session along with her guests.


The Baby’s Schedule

Each guest is assigned a different time from the baby’s schedule. They bring an appropriate gift for that time…bath time, feeding time, bed time, etc. This helps to make sure the new mom has what she needs during an average day with her new baby.

Fill Her Freezer

The first few weeks with a new baby are the most tiring. New moms find it hard to plan meals and may end up eating poorly when they need to watch their nutrition. Have guests bring a dish that can be frozen and heated easily once the baby arrives so mom doesn’t have to worry about what to have for dinner.
