Baby Shower Party Ideas!
April 14, 2011
This is one of the most fun parties in every way. Whether you are a parent-to-be, excited friend, or proud grandparent, a baby shower is an event so filled with energy and life that it should be enjoyed by all. So be prepared for lots of cute and cuddly products and plenty of pink and blue because you’re about to be drenched with Baby Shower Ideas!
Baby Shower Invitations
To help spread the word about the happy news, you’ll want to choose an invitation that is going to put a smile on your guests’ faces. Depending on the gender of the little bundle of joy, you can go with invitations that share that information as a way to build up excitement!
Our It’s a Boy and It’s a Girl invites get the message straight across.
If the gender is going to be a surprise on delivery day, our Coming Soon or Stork is Coming personalized invites will still let everyone know that something wonderful has happened!
Depending on which invitations you choose, you can sprinkle in some It’s a Boy or It’s a Girl Confetti.
Baby Shower Decorations
Other than Easter, a Baby Shower is the best time to fill a space with soft pastel colors. We have a nice selection of both gender specific and gender neutral items for you to choose from.
Our Baby Shower Decorating Kit is a good place to start. Featuring fun neutral yellow duckies among other items, this is a simple kit (11-pieces in total) which can go a long way.
Some Baby Shower Ceiling Decorations will complement the kit nicely. Also in neutral colors and images, this item is a great accent to any room.
The Baby Shower All in One is another nice touch for both fast and neutral decorating. We recommend you hang it over the gift table or in a central spot on the ceiling.
For added variety, our Splish Splash Mobile is also gender neutral and features another cute yellow ducky as well as a charming green frog.
If you really like the yellow duckies with our decorations, you’ll love the Just Duckie Garland. Use it to line the perimeter where your walls meet your ceiling and you’ll have a bright accent to your space.
If It’s a Boy . . .
You won’t be feeling blue, but you’ll be seeing it! Start with our Baby Boy Decorating Kit. With 10-pieces, including 12’ of paper garland, this kit will have you heading in the right direction.
Continue seeing blue with our Baby Boy Swirls, It’s A Boy Whirls, and Baby Boy String Decoration. Each of these products will look great hanging from the ceiling or a doorway.
You can also try hanging up our Baby Boy All in One over your gift table or in the center of the room.
If you love the blue, but miss the duckies, you’re in luck; our Just Duckie: It’s a Boy Wind Spinner will look great inside or out!
Don’t be shy about your wonderful news! Every Baby Shower needs a banner. Set up our It’s a Boy Letter Banner for all to see.
And balloons are the international sign of a good time! Decorate with variety by using any of our It’s a Boy Latex, Metallic, 18”-Metallic, or Light up Lumi-Loon balloons!
Keep them all from floating away with Blue Baby Shoes Balloon Weights.
If It’s a Girl . . .
. . . Pink will become a big part of your life from this day forward. Dive right in with a Baby Girl Decorating Kit. With fun cutouts and honeycomb centerpieces, this decorating kit just what your little princess deserves!
Little pink feet, baby bottles and baby carriages will look lovely hanging from the ceiling with our Baby Girl Swirl; It’s a Girl Whirls, and Baby Girl String Decorations.
Our Baby Girl All in One is also available to help decorate your ceilings. With 20’x20’ expandability, you can cover a lot of space with just this one piece!
And don’t forget about the Just Duckie Girl Spinner. Pink and yellow are great colors to pair together and will really catch people’s eyes.
Balloons are essential for this special day, so get some latex It’s a Girl balloons and Lumi-Loons as well as some Metallic It’s a Girl and Baby Girl Balloons.
Tie them all down with a lovely Butterfly Balloon Weight.
Baby Shower Food
If the baby shower isn’t being catered or held at a restaurant or banquet hall, you’ll want to enlist some help to feed all of the supportive friends and family who’ve RSVP’d.
Almost like a potluck, kindly ask guests to bring a dish of their choosing. Depending on how many people will be attending, you may not need to impose on more than a handful.
Serve up this lovingly made food on our fun Baby Shower Paper Goods!
Our gender neutral options feature that lovely yellow ducky. The Splish Splash Plates, 9oz Cups, Luncheon Napkins, Beverage Napkins, and Plastic Table Cover all look wonderful together!
