The Best Baby Shower Themes for GirlsPregnancy
Her special baby shower day is approaching and you are stressing out about every detail. You want it to be perfect. Not to worry, you have this under control. First things first, the occasion calls for a standout theme, one that will have the woman of the hour and her guests in awe. In order to help you reach your end goal, we are sharing creative decoration ideas, yummy food options and fun games for you to check off your long list of duties.
Mama’s little princess deserves a royal party filled with girly décor.
Think tiaras, crowns, castles and ball gowns. Combine these four essentials with a pink and gold colour scheme to recreate a girl’s number one fantasy. Have mama sit on a pink throne, pick large drapes to cover the windows and hang lovely pink garlands.
Dowse the tables in fancy glasses and fancy finger foods. Put together a little tea party with a variety of flavours available; include biscuits and cupcakes topped with edible beads and glitter for an added touch of elegance. Don’t forget the castle cake!
How about a little trivia quiz about Disney princesses? Take it back to the classics by playing Name that Princess and offering a grand prize to the guest who can name the most correctly.
Little Miss Sunshine
A little bit more of a neutral colour that isn’t as expected as pink, this theme will brighten up the room and the expression on mama-to-be’s face.
The obvious and most efficient option here is to use yellow and orange as the colour scheme. If you would like a little more diversity, choose an accent colour that flatters the décor. Balloons are essential, of course but you should also consider bouquets of sunflowers and daisies as well as yellow and gold banners.
Your sweet table should play into the theme. That means cookies in the shapes of mini suns with smiley faces coupled with yellow-frosted cupcakes. What other food can you think of that is both tasty and yellow? Popcorn! You’re welcome.
Add an emotional touch to your game plan by having guests offer their best advice to the mom of the hour. Call it Sunshine Suggestions. On a more playful note, have guests estimate the number of kernels in a jar.
It’s All Rainbows and Unicorns
Plan a magical experience for mom-to-be and her guests with this rainbow and unicorn theme.
This one is easy. Get plenty of unicorn decorations, whatever you can find. Once you have done that, your next step is to do the exact same with rainbow decorations. If you are lucky, you might find some that combine the two. Jackpot! PS. Make sure you have little unicorn party hats!
Offering multi-coloured cupcakes and a unicorn cake will win you BIG points. You can also dabble with candies and a platter of fruits mimicking the colours of the rainbow. Pro tip: Have little boxes filled up to the top with Lucky Charms cereal (without milk pretty please).
As a fun activity, have guests make their own unicorn using limited supplies, including paper mache, cotton balls, food dye and glue. The best design wins a lil’ unicorn goodie!
Adopt a Flower Power theme for mom-to-be’s special big day.
A little garden party may be the perfect space for the occasion! If this is not a realistic option, include fresh flowers as the centerpieces. The main focus of the décor should be everything floral. Little DIY creative touches will allow you to transform just about anything in order to match the theme. Don’t forget to hang up a banner that reads Baby in Bloom.
Use icing sugar to top off cookies and cupcakes with floral shapes and add fresh and edible flowers on top of the cake. Take a look at all the inspo available online.
If you are looking to challenge the guests a little, have them list names of flowers by alphabet. Whoever has the longest list (with correct answers) gets to take home their table’s bouquet centerpiece. Yay!
Pretty in Pink
A timeless colour that will have this special day looking elegant and feminine.
Pink balloons, pink flowers, pink drapes – pink all day, every day! There are so many options out there so there is no shortage of decoration ideas. Combine lighter and darker shades of pink and add in some white as an accent colour.
Imagine a table filled with pink desserts. In our mind, cupcakes with pink icing and pink-dyed cookies say it all. Have a little dispensary for pink cotton candy as an added creative touch. After all, who doesn’t love cotton candy?
A fun game idea could be to have your guests list as many pink objects and animals as they can. Whoever has the longest list wins! If you want to take it a step further, play a trivia game with questions about the 1986 Pretty in Pink film. That’s what we call thinking pink.
