Wow baby shower guests with a theme that goes beyond traditional pink and blue balloons, streamers and bunting. Look to decorating ideas that are memorable and fall outside the box.
Go bold: primary colors
Forget the pastels so often used at baby showers and go for bold, primary colors in red, blue, yellow and green. Mix and match primary color tableware pieces: red luncheon napkins with yellow cutlery and blue plates with a modern chevron design. Fill apothecary jars with colorful candies and opt for a tower stand to display decorated cupcakes as the table centerpiece. Think paper lanterns, streamers and balloons, also in bright colors to complete the look.
Sweet baby: lollipop inspiration
Another way to go bold with a baby shower color scheme is to take color inspiration from sweet treats like swirl lollipops. Bright yellow, green, fuchsia, purple, orange and blue create a gorgeous color palette for décor choices.
Cute, cuddly baby safari animals offer a gender neutral color scheme for any baby shower host wishing to depart from the boy blue and girl pink. Adorable giraffes, tiny tigers and playful monkeys offer a whimsical feel and will be loved by the mom-to-be and all party guests. Make decorating easy with a party pack, and then accent it with green and yellow hanging poms, coordinating balloons and a safari-themed cake.
For the expecting mom who loves all things Disney, why not throw her a Disney-inspired baby shower with décor from Mickey’s signature colors of red, yellow, black and white? Incorporate these colors in the tableware, hanging decorations and balloons. Don’t forget to include a life-size Mickey Mouse standee.
Sunshine and daisies
Perfect for a gender neutral theme party, Sunshine-and-Daisies is a simple theme that allows for a lot of creativity and versatility. Focus on the color yellow with accents of white; think bright and cheery. Décor pieces to consider include hanging yellow tissue fans (that look like a sun), a yellow chevron flag banner and bright daisy cut-outs to complete the look.
Red and green holiday
Give a December baby shower a holiday feel by switching out the blue and pink baby shower decorating ideas for the festive reds and greens of the holiday season. Add special touches like a candy cane foil centerpiece on the gift table and sparkling décor that includes red/green twirly whirlys. Focus more on the peppermint/candy cane style and less on Santa. If the mom-to-be enjoys the glitz of the holidays, be sure to add shimmering garlands in silver to accent the reds and greens.
