Fun Baby Shower Party Themes

Creative baby shower party themes are fun and memorable occassion for everyone involved.

If you get invited to a lot of baby showers, then you know that the same kind of party over and over can get monotonous. If you have volunteered to host or participate in the planning of a baby shower, try using a fun theme to have a shower that everyone will enjoy and remember. Following are a few ideas to get you started.

*Pink or blue theme - If you know the gender of the baby, a pink or blue party is a fun theme. Pink, of course, is for a girl and blue is for a boy. For a pink party, everything relating to the party and the gifts should be pink. To introduce this theme to the invited guests, send them a pink invitation and request that they wear pink to the shower. Ask them to wrap their gifts in pink paper. Decorate the shower location with pink decorations, such as pink balloons and pink streamers. Even plan to carry the theme through to the food. Many bakeries will bake colored bread to your specifications. If this option is available in your area, make pink finger sandwiches. For dessert, serve pink cake and pink punch. Be creative and see in how many things in relation to the shower that you can utilize the pink theme. For the blue party, use these same suggestions relating to the color blue instead.

*Diaper theme - Any new parent knows that diapers become a big part of your life, so why not have a diaper theme party? Start out by sending your guests invitations that look like diapers. You may be able to find these at your local card store. If not, just make your own by folding paper similar to how you would fold a diaper. Either have the shower information on the inside of the folded paper or place a small printed card inside detailing the date, time, etc. of the shower. Be creative in making your invitations. You may even want to close the invitation using a small safety pin. Guests should use the diaper theme in their gifts, as well. A new mother can never have too many diapers, so this should be an appreciated gift. In addition to diapers, any gifts relating to diaper changing can also be given. Use the diaper and safety pin theme for your decorations. To carry the theme through to the snacks, consider baking diaper shaped cookies and cutting finger sandwiches in the shape of diapers. The diaper shower will be one theme your guests will not forget.

*The way we were theme - People always enjoy looking at baby pictures. A great way to incorporate this into the shower theme is to ask all the invited guests to bring a baby picture of themselves to the shower. During the shower, make a game of having everyone guess which photo belongs to which guest. For the invitations, consider incorporating the baby pictures of the honored mother-to-be. Many reprographics and office supply stores make color copies of photos that can easily be made into invitations. For this type of party, any type of gift and food would be appropriate.

These are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing when it comes to planning a baby shower. When you give a creative and fun shower, it will be memorable to both the mother-to-be and her family and friends for years to come.
