Mother Goose meets mom-to-be at this charming shower.

Nursery Rhyme

Celebrate favorite nursery rhymes from the mom-to-be's childhood with this adorable shower. Whether your guest of honor prefers "Hey Diddle Diddle" or "Baa Baa Black Sheep," she's sure to love all the nursery rhyme-inspired food, decor, and games,. Let your guests snack on Humpty Dumpty eggs, guess how many balls of wool the black sheep has, enjoy nursery rhyme cookies, and much more.

This pretty in purple sparkle cake will be a crowd pleaser at your baby shower.

Sparkle Cake

This very violet sparkle cake is the perfect addition to any baby shower. Create a beautiful, classic cake complete with lollipop and wafer decor.

Helpings of Humpty

Your guests will appreciate the effort you put into matching the party food up with favorite nursery rhymes. In addition to deviled eggs for Humpty Dumpty, offer platters of veggies and fruit for "Mary Mary Quite Contrary," mini pies for "Sing a Song of Sixpence," and roast beef tea sandwiches for "This Little Piggy."

Baby Book Banner

Copy pages from your favorite nursery rhyme collection and string them to create your own nursery rhyme banner. You can create multiple banners and hang them throughout the party, wherever guests are likely to gather: over the food table, over the presents, behind the chair where the mom-to-be will sit, or elsewhere. Your guests can brush up on their rhymes while they mingle! Photo by Laura-Kate Amrhein, Sweet Stirrings

Have You Any Wool?

Your guests will love this nursery rhyme version of a traditional "guess how many" game. Fill a jar or vase with cotton balls (though maybe not three bags full!) and ask guests to guess how many balls of "wool" there are. You can reward the winner with a wooly prize, like a wintry wool scarf or pair of mittens. Photo by Laura-Kate Amrhein, Sweet Stirrings

Get crafty with simple sugar cookies and creative icing designs, and make (or buy!) your own nursery rhyme cookies.
