Baby Shower Theme Ideas

The first step to make your baby shower planning less stressful and more fun is to pick a baby shower theme. There are a lot of choices to make when throwing a baby shower. The invitations, decorations, what games to play, what kind of food to serve, what kind of favors to give out. I know, it can become overwhelming. However, having a common theme for your party will make these decisions easier and help all the details fall into place.

I love a good baby shower theme. It can really set the tone of the baby shower and gives you a chance to show off your creative side. We have many baby shower theme ideas below to get your creative juices flowing. But, before you pick just any theme, read through our suggestions below. If you choose a theme that is near and dear to the guest of honor's heart, you will make her shower even more special.

Before choosing your baby shower theme ask yourself these questions:

  • What would the mom-to-be like?

    Would she like a laid back, casual baby shower or an elegant soiree?

    Does she have any hobbies or interests? Maybe she loves to sew or collects owls. Or loves French food or the color fuchsia. You can use almost anything as a jumping point for your theme.

    You might also want to find out what colors or themes the mom-to-be plans to use in the baby's nursery. This pretty much guarantees she will love it, and she might even be able to use some of the decorations or centerpieces from the party in the baby's room.

  • What season will the shower be held?

    This will help you decide whether to have the shower indoors or outdoors and maybe even what colors to use. Also, some decorating themes are more readily available at certain times of the year.

  • Is the party going to be all girls or co-ed?

    If it is going to be an all girl party, you can make it as cute and girly as you want. However, if the guys are invited too, you might want to keep it more casual or pick a theme that is somewhat guy friendly. Many of our baby shower theme ideas below are perfect for a couples baby shower.

Finally, when you have something in mind, visit some party and craft stores. This will help you make your final decision and ensure that your vision can be carried out. You might also find some little extras to add that you never thought of.
