If you’re planning your baby shower and are after a little inspiration, then you’ve come to the right place! We’ve collected some fantastic blog posts and Pinterest boards from around the web to give you a few ideas to get you started. And we also have some beautiful maternity dresses in pink, blue and every colour in between!
Once you’ve decided on a theme or colour scheme, your baby shower décor is where you can really get creative! You’ll want to dress your table and decorate the rest of the party space to match, tying it all into your theme – and there is so much more to it these days that pink for a girl or blue for a boy. You could go for balloons, flowers, bunting, a combination of the three, or something completely different! The world really is your oyster.
Check out our Baby Shower Pinterest Board for some fabulous ideas and inspiration.
Just because you’re pregnant, doesn’t mean that you have to keep your feet up and twiddle your thumbs at your baby shower. It’s a great idea to have plenty of activities and games lined up to keep you and your guests busy! We love the idea of getting guests to create something together that you can keep and display in baby’s room – maybe an artwork, a book of advice (for new parents or for baby), or even a patchwork quilt (you can get a crafty friend or family member to stitch it together afterwards)!
We love these great tips and ideas from Oregon Mommy Blogger Lauren Hartmann at Babble.com.
You’re eating for two right now (and of course your guests need to eat too), so your baby shower food should be an important part of your planning, but it can also be a really fun part! Buffet style finger food is a great option, and if you have the time, you can get really creative with how you present it! We love the idea of finger sandwiches and a fruit salad buffet.
But of course it doesn’t all have to be so virtuously healthy – we’ve found a delicious Pinterest board entirely dedicated to baby shower cupcakes! YUM!
Your baby shower is all about you and your little one, so we recommend making it a booze-free zone. But this doesn’t mean that you all have to stick to diet coke! How about coming up with some fruity mocktails – make them really colourful and decorate with real fruit and those teeny umbrellas and your guest’s won’t even notice that they’re alcohol free! Or you could try this recipe from wholefoods blogger The Scrumptious Pumpkin and make up a big punch bowl full of delicious peach mango white iced tea.
Baby shower favours are a lovely way to say thank you to your guests for coming, and to give them a little keep sake of the day to take away with them. You could buy your favours, or with a little inspiration it’s easy to create something simple, stylish and homemade. We love popcorn based favours playing on the phrase ‘ready to pop’, or what about giving out little pots of nail varnish – pink for a girl, blue for a boy, or different colours for each guest if it’s going to be a surprise!
In need of a little more inspiration? Here’s a Pinterest board all about it!
