Picnic 'Til She Pops

For the mom-to-be who's an outdoors enthusiast, nothing can rival a picnic-themed celebration. Mom and her guests will love this picnic party, whether it's held inside or out. Gingham tablecloths, checkered napkins, delicious and easy food, and fun favors all help set a lively picnic scene to create lasting memories for mom and her baby.

Personal Picnic Baskets

Your guests will enjoy noshing on traditional picnic fare like sandwiches, chips, and cookies. Dress this simple food up in adorable baskets, checkered napkins, and colorful chevron packages.

This flower box cake tastes as good as it looks and works well with any garden or outdoor themed shower.

Flower Box Cake

Plant an edible garden that your guests will love. The flowers and adorable fence complete the look.

Refreshment Time

What beverages could be more perfect for a picnic than a big bucketful of ice cold drinks. Let your guests get refreshed with typical picnic soft drinks, and give them decorative straws and napkins to go along with their picnic drinks!

Sangria With a Twist

Serve this refreshing, fruity sangria with either just fruit juice (the butterfly) or with the addition of some wine (the bee sting). Either way, your guests will love the freshly sliced peaches and grapes.

Go with Gingham

With a pregnant woman as the guest of honor, it may not be so easy for everyone to sit on the ground with a picnic blanket. But don't worry, it's easy to create the picnic blanket feel while sitting at tables. Indoors or out, all you need to give your tables some festive picnic flair are gingham tablecloths, mason jars for the drinks, and fresh-cut flowers.

Messages from the Heart

You'll enjoy the picnic outdoors, but mom-to-be can bring a piece of the outdoors back inside with her with this cute activity. Collect a few dozen shiny, polished rocks (from your backyard or a craft store) and encourage guests to adorn them with special messages to the new baby. You'll build a rock collection that both mom and baby will treasure.

Strawberry Jam

"Preserve" your memories with this delicious shower favor. Homemade jam in a cute jar makes a perfect present for a picnic party!
