Creative Baby Shower Ideas
March 29, 2013
As the saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers.” Maybe this is why April is such a popular month for Baby Showers!
Here are some popular themes, tips, gifts, and ideas for baby shower planning.
Cake pops, a delicious combination of cake and lollipop, have become incredibly popular among creative bakers. You can cook up these tasty treats and decorate them with frosting designs of any baby-related item; pacifiers, diapers, teddy bears, and bottles, for example. Cake pops are fun to bake, fun to decorate, and even more fun to eat!
The classic color schemes, pink for girls and blue for boys, are still good, but why not switch it up? Springtime is full of beautiful pastels- greens, yellows, and purples- that will make lively arrangements. You can even find discounted Easter decorations a week or two after the holiday, saving you money on the party.
The diaper cake is a beloved baby shower tradition. If you are unfamiliar, it is a series of rolled up diapers arranged to look like a cake. But the kicker is that you can have the diapers designed in any style you like! You can make a basket of rolled diapers and fill it with other goodies: baby wipes, powder, bottles, and binkies. Or, you could construct the diapers like a stuffed animal, dressed in baby clothes. There are plenty of creative ideas out there, just search the internet for inspiration.
Another way to spice up the baby shower is to invite the guests to play some games. There are classics, like pin the diaper on the baby (cardboard cutout, of course), guess the circumference of the mother-to-be’s belly, and guess the baby food flavor, but there are any number of unique games you can come up with.
Traditional baby showers are fine, but by the time the mother is on her second or third child, it might be time to switch things up. Find some fun new ideas and you can turn a baby shower into the party of the year!
