Creative Baby Shower Themes for 2016
Throwing a baby shower this year? Break out of the bland, generic themes and plan a fun, creative party that everyone will enjoy. Wow your guests and celebrate in style with one of these whimsical baby shower themes.
The Olympic Games kick off in Rio di Janeiro this summer, so what better time for an Olympic-themed baby shower? Decorate with international flags, Olympic rings made out of balloons, and red, white and blue cupcakes and other treats. Play simple party games, and award medals (homemade or bought on Etsy) to the winners.
Welcome the tiniest superhero to the planet with an out-of-this-world baby shower. Make centerpieces with action figures, and string up vintage comic books around the room. Have guests decorate onesies with the super powers they would bestow on the new baby.
Cultivate a love of reading in the new arrival from the very beginning. Plan a literary-themed baby shower, offering décor and refreshments inspired by classic storybooks, such as Goodnight Moon, Where the Wild Things Are or The Hungry, Hungry Caterpillar. Ask each guest to bring a favorite picture book to contribute to the baby’s growing collection.
Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Throw an adorable animal-themed baby shower, featuring decorations with woodland, jungle, aquatic or domestic creatures. Stock the new baby’s shelves with plush critters, plus fluffy bath towels, onesies and other animal accessories.
A Little Magic
Indulge in your love of make believe, and plan a baby shower centered around all things magical. Think unicorns, dragons, magic wands, wizards, flying carpets and fortune tellers for the decorations and activities. Ask guests to play fairy godmother (or godfather) and draw or write one magical wish for the baby. Bind all the wishes into a meaningful keepsake book.
