Congratulations! You’re having a baby! Once you find out about your new bundle of joy, it’s time to celebrate the new addition to your family with a baby shower. No matter if you’re having a boy or a girl, SampleHouse has baby gifts, toys, and more to make your baby shower one to remember.
If you’ve been to lots of baby showers that have seemed a little boring, incorporate a theme! Coordinating decor, games, and goodies will encourage your guests to get in the spirit and have a little fun. These ideas for themed baby showers will make your little one’s first big bash one for the record books.
Bring your little superstar into the world with an old-Hollywood themed baby shower. You’ll obviously need a red carpet walk way, along with framed photos of your favorite actors and actresses from years past – think Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, and James Dean. For an adorable keepsake long after the shower is over, give your new baby her very own star on your personal Walk of Fame – pour plaster into a square mold, and let guests add their own unique touch with rhinestones, glitter, and chopsticks for writing a personal message.
For a nostalgic twist, throw an 80s party to welcome your new addition. Crank up the Cyndi Lauper and Madonna tunes, decorate the room in neon colors, and play Footloose on the TV. Games featuring trivia from favorite TV shows and movies are always a hit, and party favors featuring 80s goodies like Airheads, Runts, and Big League Chew will make your party totally awesome.
Bring back your favorite books from childhood with a vintage books shower. Break out your old copies of Oh the Places You’ll Go, Here Comes Peter Cottontail, and Goodnight Moon for decor and game inspiration, but keep the snacks and sips sophisticated so the party stays adult-friendly. This literary theme is also a great inspiration for guests to bring classic children’s books as their gift.
If you’re a little more practical, an “around the clock” baby shower can help you stock up on essentials you’ll need. Assign guests a time of the day, and ask them to bring a gift you’d need to use at that time. For example, if your guests is assigned 7 pm, they can bring bath toys or a comfortable sleeper for bedtime. Theme your decor around clocks, and don’t hesitate to incorporate a little Alice in Wonderland-style Mad Hatter elements.
Whatever theme you choose, SampleHouse has everything you’ll need to welcome your new baby in style.
