    Baby Shower Themes

    Ducky & Me Baby Cake
    If you're planning an upcoming baby shower, one of the very first things you're going to want to do is decide upon a theme. The theme you choose will dictate the type of cake you purchase, the decorations, the games, the party favors and so on. Don't forget to take into account if the mother-to-be is having a boy or a girl and her likes and dislikes before making your final decision.

    A fun baby shower theme to use is "Hollywood Mommies." You can be very creative with this theme and even request that your guests dress a little "Hollywood" on your invitations. For example, you could have your guests wear fancy hats, dark sunglasses and dresses to help enhance the theme. The decorations could include pictures of famous people with their children, such as Julia Roberts, Courtney Cox, Angelina Jolie , Nicole Kidman and Britney Spears. Most party stores will have plates, cups, streamers and more that follow along perfectly with a Hollywood theme and you can have a cake made that depicts a Hollywood mom or the Hollywood hills to complete the look.

    Another cute idea for a baby boy or girl shower is the "Rubber Ducky" theme. For an adorable centerpiece, a rubber ducky diaper cake. Place buffet style appetizers and sweets around it on orange or yellow colored plates. Some food ideas include cheese and crackers, crab cakes, croissant sandwiches, cupcakes with rubber ducky's on them, brownies and cookies. For the gift table, fill a baby bath with ducky themed gifts for the mom-to-be. From burp cloths to tiny t-shirts, finding ducky themed clothes and baby items will be easy and available at just about any baby store. Make your guests "ooh and ahh" over your sweet party favors by giving out ducky shaped soap and bubble bath. For a creative touch your guests will love, make your punch blue and float a ducky in the bowl. Help the new mom to never forget this day by surprising her with a rubber ducky gift basket filled with all the essentials that she and her baby will need.

    If the mommy-to-be is having a girl, the "Tea Party" theme is not only fun, but it will bring your guests back to their childhood. Remember when you were little and used to invite your friends over for a make believe tea party? Now you can have a real one that will wow your guests from the moment they step in the door. Decorate with different shades of pink for the punch, cups, napkins, plates, streamers and flowers. Serve finger sandwiches, plenty of confections, many varieties of tea and of course, a cake with a teapot or a baby girl design on it. For party favors, give out tiny teapots with flowers in them. For an unforgettable decoration that the new mommy can also use with her child later is a Tea Party TeePee Playhouse. You can store all your gifts inside and what a fun reminder of how we all wanted our own little play space as little kids ourselves.

    There are many different themes you can use for a baby shower, from the "Bear Necessities" where you have the guests bring the mommy-to-be all the necessary items she will need when her baby is born to a "Little League" sports theme for a baby boy with basketballs and soccer balls as decorations. But, it's using your creativity for those little touches that will go along way into making a memorable baby shower for the mother-to-be and all of her guests. For gifts, try the Baby Athlete Gift Basket or the "Hello World!" Sports Baby Gift Basket for the future baby athlete. Both mom and dad will sure adore the unique gift. Good luck!
