Baby showers tend to get old pretty quickly, and it can be easy to slip into the old fashioned, boring style. But you want yours to stand out, you want to grab your guests, let them have tons of fun and give them a shower to remember. This means switching things up, and we’ve got just the way to do this – read on for our favorite 3 themes for baby showers.
Animals are a simple yet exciting way to spruce up a baby shower – you can choose anything you like, whether that’s bees, bears or badgers, everyone has a favorite animal, and this is a great way to add a little excitement. It’s easy to get color themes – for example, if you’re going for bees, go for black and yellow (or go for an animal like a leopard for a truly funky cake!). Animals can be both gender-neutral or gendered, depending on whether you plan on surprising your guests – if you fancy making the gender clear from the start, a pink flamingo or a blue elephant does wonders. It also means you can easily decorate the food, and even have some little stuffed toys to make your shower all the more cuddly. Our favorite is the unicorn – it’s so colorful! Since you may be spoilt for choice, you could even go one further and opt for a safari or zoo theme, so you can have plenty of different animals packed into one!
Your child is the light of your life, so why not use stars as your theme? Stars are perfect, as they represent the twinkle and light that your child is going to bring, as well as showing off the super star that they’re sure to be in the future. It’s easy to implement too – star cutters aren’t hard to find for food, as well as star sprinkles, and there are plenty of related decorations and balloons. You can also go with gold as your color theme, giving it a shine and bright vibe. Stars are also great for your invitations and thank you cards – add a little bit of glitter for that extra sparkle stars give. You could go one further and even introduce a space theme to really switch things up and represent how much your baby is worth to you.
Storybooks and Fairy Tales
The stories of your childhood are the perfect way to celebrate your new baby – who doesn’t love reminiscing about Winnie the Pooh or The Cat In The Hat? Fairy tales can be fun too, and you can crown your baby the dashing prince or the beautiful princess. The great thing about children’s stories is not only are they vibrant and colorful, but they’re a lot of fun and give your baby shower a really comforting, gentle touch. It’s a great way to celebrate all the stories you’ll be able to share with your child once they come into the world, and the theme fits really well to make your day one you and your guests will never forget.
These are just 3 of our favorite themes for baby showers, which are bound to please anyone. So get ready, and have fun!
