Nothing is more silly and adorable than a baby with a mustache, and Frog Prince Paperie keeps its shower theme simple without sacrificing the cute factor. Blue, orange, and black colors appear in cupcake toppers, candies, and picture frames. Mustache stickers on drinking glasses, family photos, and signs, plus mustache cookies and witticisms ("Thanks for combing!" and "Keep calm and stache on"), make sure every last detail is a hirsute success.
This sweet idea from Pizzazzerie is perfect for future bookworms. Pale blue and yellow colors are in paper rosettes, crepe-paper bow garlands, iced sugar cookies, and a framed "library book" poster signed by guests. Children's books-inspired sweet treats, like Goodnight Moon Pies, Up on Top Apple Crumbles, and Give a Dog a Donut Cakes, line the dessert table. To round everything out, display classic children's books and stuffed animals from those books.
Raise a little traveler by introducing your baby to the world. Grey Grey Designs draws inspiration from vintage maps and suitcases for the color scheme (aqua, sage green, tan) invitations, and decorations. Grey Grey uses maps to fold a wreath and origami flowers, and fills the room with globes and party favors in mini cardboard suitcases. A global cuisine (like Greek cucumber salad, Indian samosas, and Mexican seven-layer dip) makes sure everyone is well fed!
Capturing Joy With Kristen Duke takes this blue-and-brown shower theme to new heights with clever ideas such as using painted airplane clothespins to hang bodysuits with airplane images, and topping a cute diaper cake with a toy airplane. Yummy snacks include an adorable airplane cake and blue mint- and chocolate-flavored popcorn.
Grab your cowboy boots and saddle up for a Wild, Wild West shindig. Cattle and Cupcakes was spurred on to create this black-and-red shower for a friend having twin boys. The "cowboys and Indians"-inspired theme can be seen in the banners and feather garlands, cupcake toppers, and favor tags. Cowboy hats, western scarves, arrow-shaped pens, and tepee-shaped party favors also keep things fun.
When a theme has lasted as long as dinosaurs have, you just know it'll impress the guests with a big bang. Give the classic theme a modern spin with these ideas from Double Fun Parties. Green, yellow, and wood browns can be found in in the bunting, the cake and food, and the serving ware. Wooden dinosaur toys, a fern wreath, and dino-themed foods (fossilized caramel macarons, deviled dino eggs, and pterodactyl chicken salad) keep things roaring.
Another great idea from Frog Prince Papery takes something as silly as a rubber duckie and turns it into a super stylish and whimsical party theme. A yellow, grey, and white color palette (with touches of blue) appears in patterned decorations (chevrons, stripes, and polka dots), plus frames and flowers. Delicate duckie details -- like wineglasses decorated with glittery ducks and little ducks on cake pops -- add pretty touches while providing the future baby with a robust rubber duckie collection for bathtime.
Find another clever use for ordinary wooden blocks for this fun baby shower game!
Welcome to Planet Beautiful Baby Boy. Main objective: Have an out-of-this-world baby shower. Inspired By This does just that with an adorable alien-themed shower that uses yellow, orange, gray, and blue colors for glittery party hats, a backdrop to hang above the finger food table ("Mega Bytes"), and the other food. The party serves up clever drinks and bites such as "rocket fuel" (lemonade), "tricolored laser beams" (tricolored bell peppers), and "asteroids" (donut holes). Guests take home tote bags printed with space invader graphics and phrase such as "Take me to your leader" and "We come in peace."
Celebrate your little rock star with this oh-so-cool idea from Life and Baby. Start with a turntable cake and throw in some music-themed decorations that include bodysuits and tees with fun phrases such as "Born to Rock" and "My Dad Rocks," and Pop Rocks candy. Add a clever "Potty Like a Rock Star" sign on the bathroom, and you've got yourself a rockin' party! (Plus, this is the perfect excuse for music-loving parents to display and play their vintage albums!)
