Hosting a shower for the soon to be mother of a baby girl? Take any baby girl shower themes over the top! Little girls are really something special. (thank heaven for them, right?) Whatever angle of the baby girl theme you are highlighting, make use of these tips and tricks to make that sweet, pink, diva in the making the focus of the event.
Girls are lucky because they can get away with any color in the rainbow. Try convincing anyone the same is true of a baby boy: pink or purple just isn’t done!
Of course pink is the supreme girl’s color so if you choose to embrace it really go all out. The fashion trends of late lend themselves to bold, bright and downright neon colors. This is in your favor. You can find just about anything in neon pink right now. All your plastic ware, plates and napkins will sing ‘baby girl on the way”.
Add splashes of color to throw pillows, center pieces, the buffet tables and even the walls. You can do this easily by adding flowers, wrapping the throw pillows you already have in a baby girl shower themed appropriate colors or by filling clear glass containers with tissue paper or metallic pink ribbons. Get creative and color it up.
You don’t have to spend a ton on gifts and décor or settle for a run of the mill plastic table cover from the dollar store. Fabric is your new best friend and it doesn’t have to cost a lot.
You can find inexpensive fabric to fit any theme, no matter how specific. The touch of actual textiles will transform your party’s appearance from run of the mill to runway worthy. Get to the fabric store and storm the clearance bolts. You will come away with loads of pink and otherwise adorable girly fabrics in any texture and shade imaginable.
Use your linen bounty to make inexpensive, but eye catching pink table runners, transform a humble recliner into the pink princess throne fit for a mom to be. Cut out place mats, or precut a couple large squares of pink fleece and have the group pitch in to make a hand tied, no sew baby blanket on the spot!
Tie It In
The really important factor in taking your baby girl shower themes over the top is to tie it into every aspect of the shower itself. If you choose to go with a princess theme, the invitations should scream royalty, the food needs to be fussy and delicate, and the décor needs to be glamorously bejeweled and rich feeling.
It is not difficult to do; it just takes planning, careful attention to detail and shopping before hand.
Never underestimate that little something extra; the whimsical touches that push a nice gathering over the top. For example, getting back to the princess themed shower, fussy finger sandwiches served on crystalline plates (clear plastic plates with the fancy cuts that mimic jewels) and sparkling cider in fluted glasses is great, but imagine the entire gathering enjoying such delights while wearing a crown that each received upon arrival?
The added ‘x’ factor of that little something extra will be remembered for years to come.
