Baby Shower Ideas

     It’s “Where’s the Party Wednesday” and we are talking Baby Showers!!  We searched high and low for our favorite themes and decor, and found the cutest ideas ever, and then added a little LLLove ;)!  Now we need more of our friends to start having babies, so that we can throw some adorable, pint sized parties!
     Two of our favorite Baby Shower ideas were “Cute as a Button” and “Bow Ties”, so we put them together.  Either of these themes could stand on their own just fine, but aren’t they a darling pair?  The Bow Tie photos were from the fabulous Jesi Hack of Jesi Hack Designs baby shower by Joyful Weddings and Events!  You could also do “Buttons and Bows,” for a baby girl…the favors could be little bow hair clips with buttons in the middle…love.

     We love the diaper bow tie garland, and bow tie mason jars!  The favors can be button and bow tie cookies.  Check out our tutorial on Button Cookies, here!  And get a custom tote bag by Wedding Chicks, and make a bow tie onesie for the baby to be!


     The next shower theme on our list is “Elephants on Parade”…introducing the new “Little Peanut.”  We found the cutest girl and boy showers on Bump Smitten! Click here and here to see the full post. This could also be parlayed into a Circus (“Big Top Baby”), or jungle theme…just add more animals ;).  You could also throw in an homage to the Disney film Dumbo, and use “Baby Mine” on the cake, or on a banner somewhere.


     One of our fabulous readers told us she was throwing a Bee themed baby shower this summer, and asked for some suggestions…well, we were more then happy to help!  This theme is sure to leave your guests buzzing!  Check out how cute these decor ideas are we found on Bump Smitten, here and here! It can be “B is for Baby,” “Mommy to Bee,” “Cute as can Bee,” or “Bee my Little Baby.”…and on the dessert table “Sweet as Honey.”
1. We were told that The Invitation & Printable Party Kit did not print well, so here is another link to FREE printables!
     For Mom’s who want a more studious theme, baby book showers are always a great idea!  We are huge fans of decor that can double as a gift once the party is over.  If you are going to spend money on decor, you might as well be able to make it useful once the party is over. 
     Use baby books for your center pieces, and advise guests to bring a baby book with them to the shower, then the new Mom gets her own supply of bedtime stories when the party is over…now that is the gift that keeps on giving.  
     For a girl we chose a fairytale theme with, “Once Upon A Time,” but you could do an “Alice in Wonderland” theme as well.  We found these amazing free downloads from Martha Stewart, which included Rifle Paper Co.  invitations, bookmark favors, and DIY decor ideas.  For a boy we found the cutest “Goodnight Moon” themed shower on Hostess with the Mostess, click here for free downloads and  to see the full post.  We also liked the theme “The Little Prince,” for a baby boy.

     “Tutu Cute” is an understatement! For the future Mom’s with a more girly style, try this tutu themed baby shower.  Tool is inexpensive, and goes a long way to add a soft, whimsical, and girly effect to any party.  This would also be an adorable little girl birthday theme.

    I'm throwing a baby shower in June for a dear friend. It's a black, yellow, granite, bee theme (to match her nursery). So far I found great chevron striped bags on for favors, have an idea brewing about supplies for making fabric canvases to hang in the nursery as a little art project. Still working on the menu and a few other details. If you find any good ideas let me know! Or maybe a creative way to do the gift opening?
