How-to Guide on Choosing a Baby Shower Theme

Aug 6, 2008
Are you an expectant mom or shower planner, in the midst of choosing a baby shower theme? If so, you're probably aware that there is almost no end to the variety of ready-made themes, available today. You, of course, have the option of deciding among them or putting together one of your own.

If you decide to go the ready-made route, it makes your job fairly easy. Many before you have simply used what I like to refer to as the 'Oh, that's so adorable' method when choosing a theme, for the upcoming shower.

Honestly, the growing popularity of online baby shower related websites, makes this method even easier. Grab a cup of coffee and your comfy slippers. Type the phrase 'choosing a baby shower theme' into your favorite search engine and let the shopping begin!

You can choose from classic themes like Noah's Ark, teddy bears, nursery rhymes and little yellow duckies. On the other hand, you may decide to choose a more updated theme such as modern moms, Sesame Street, two peas in a pod or Disney Babies.

Should your creativity get the best of you and entice you into creating a theme of your own, the sky is the limit. Use your imagination; you just might be surprised at the results. There are so many different themes to choose from that you might end up storing some ideas for any future showers or even for your future babies.

Do you plan on naming your baby after a color? Examples of this are Gray, Violet and Sage. If this is the case, you can easily incorporate that specific hue into the decorations.

Almost everyone loves ice cream. Take advantage of this and plan a Pickles and Ice Cream shower. Serve an ice cream cake, decorated with baby gherkins made of frosting. Provide ice cream, on the side ... along with a variety of toppings. Send each guest home with a nifty ice cream scoop, to mark the occasion. Make the event more festive, by making homemade ice cream. It's a great way to get all guests involved - both young and old will appreciate a little ice cream!

If you are planning a baby shower, for a friend or family member, consider throwing a 'diaper and formula' themed party. Include a note in each invitation asking guests to consider purchasing a bag of diapers (any size) or a gift card that can be redeemed for the intended brand of formula, once the baby arrives.

This particular idea works well for guests who don't like to shop. It's won't take much effort for them to buy formula and diapers.

Make them aware that they still have the option of giving the alternative gift, of their choice. Many times, given the choice, guests will choose to purchase both.

Remember, when choosing a theme for your baby shower, there are really no wrong choices. Regardless of the choice you make, it's more than likely your guests will show their signs of approval.
