One of the most memorable moments for any mom-to-be is her baby shower! Whether you are hosting the shower for yourself, a sister or a friend…a theme ties everything together by creating a connection between the event and the mother. No doubt, it can be overwhelming to pull it all together so we are sharing four fun ideas to make the baby shower not only memorable, but sentimental as well.
Mother to-be favorite childhood book. This has to be one of our favorite ideas! You can get as minimal or fancy as you want with this, and it will be so sentimental! Get the mama’s favorite childhood book and have the guests sign it with wishes for the baby or advice for mama. The decor can be inspired by the illustrations of the book. This also includes the color palettes and food inspiration. An example of a fun shower is the theme of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”. The food and decoration colors were so vibrant and fun while still remaining gender neutral.
Mother to be childhood nursery rhyme. Twinkle, twinkle little star is a great one! Everyone knows the lyrics and it brings back sweet childhood memories. Decorations are soft, whimsical and airy with touches of white, gold and blue. Another great option is “Little lamb” which brings a sweet and nostalgic energy that works great for a gentle gender neutral shower. Whichever you decide, you can be sure to find the perfect décor for rent on ROGO to stay on budget.
Season of the delivery date. The seasons are beautiful in their own way and incorporating the colors and comfort foods of the seasons are a great way to seamlessly coordinate a shower. There are so many fun ideas surrounding the seasons such as:
A little pumpkin is on its way (fall)
Pumpkin spice and everything nice, let us welcome a cutie pie (fall)
Winter Wonderland is a beautiful idea for a unique theme for the cold seasons (winter)
Florals and woodland creatures (spring)
Fun in the sun (summer)
The heritage of the mother or father to be. This one is a lot of fun. My girlfriend had a beautiful baby shower with the Russian nesting doll theme. She incorporated beautiful flowers and matryoshka dolls into the decor as well as traditional Russian food. If you have an Italian heritage, “cio baby” is a really fun theme to consider. You can incorporate delicious Italian cuisine such as pizza & gelato. The Amalfi coast is known for their lemons which can be made into a theme of its own for a fun & vibrant event.
I hope some of these ideas sparked a fun idea for the unique baby shower you are throwing. Remember: do not overthink it. Some of the best ideas are right in front of you! Have fun and enjoy this beautiful season of anticipation for the little joy that is on its way.
