Hosting a baby shower can be so fun and exciting. From preparing the food to planning the decor and inviting the guests, every part of the organization process is filled with love and anticipation.
Whether you’re throwing a baby shower for a friend, a family member, or yourself, there’s no reason for you to not go all out. Sure, you can have a regular baby shower with a cake, some gifts – if you have no ideas what to give, visit Belly Bands, which helps you to find the best gift that helps and support the new mom throughout her pregnancy and postpartum journey -, and some games. But throwing a themed baby shower is so much more fun. A theme gives people the opportunity to get creative and dress up in something fun. It also allows you to throw a baby shower that stands out. But with so many themes to try out, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. How do you pick the right one?
Well, we’re here to help. In this blog post, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best baby shower themes to try out for your next party. Let’s take a look!
Pastel-themed baby shower
Pastel colors look absolutely beautiful. Not to mention they’re classy and easy on the eyes. You can throw a pastel-themed baby shower if the person you’re throwing it for is peppy yet sophisticated.
Set up your venue with lots of pastel-colored balloons. Here are some pastel colors that work best:
- Baby pink
- Light blue
Ask your guests to dress up in pastel dresses or pantsuits. You can also choose specific colors for specific people so that you have every shade at your party. When it comes to food, prepare some cute little pastries and savory foods that match the theme. Make sure every element at your party is lightly colored and dainty.
Finally, the invites. Your invites are crucial when it comes to communicating your theme. Your invites should have a pretty, cursive font, and the background should obviously be pastel. If you’re feeling extra, you can customize each invite so that the background color corresponds with the color assigned to the person receiving it.

Fall-themed baby shower
This is a seasonal theme idea that is perfect if your baby shower date coincides with the start of fall. For this theme, make sure you’re throwing your event outdoors – for instance, in your backyard or a public park. This way you can use the fallen leaves as a nice little backdrop for your party.
For added effect, add pumpkins, staple leaves, and bring in hay balls to create a perfect theme. Make sure everything is in brown tones – from the decor to the outfits to the invitations. If you have a cake, arrange a brown carrot cake that everyone can enjoy.
Because your event is outdoors, you can even play some fun fall-themed games outside. For instance, how about the Leaf Blow Game? Everyone has a leaf in front of them on the table, and the first person to blow it across the finish line wins.
Bridgerton-themed baby shower
If you’ve seen the popular Netflix show Bridgerton (or read the books), you know what a baby shower theme this could make. If you and your friends are looking to go back to a time of carriages, fun parties, and elegant outfits, this is the theme for you.
For starters, everyone must be dressed in fancy ball gowns. You can even make it a “masked ball” and everyone can come wearing dresses and masks.
You can organize this shower at your house or in your backyard. Set up the dinner table in a really fancy way – add flowers, perhaps a candelabrum or two, and some ribbons strewed across the table. Also, add name tags to signify where everyone will be sitting.
For the decor, get some fake (or real if you have them) vines and string them up around the room. Make your furniture really fancy by putting some themed throw cushions on them. As far as the invite is concerned, make it really pretty. Add lots of flowers and use Victorian-era language as if you’re inviting the townsfolk to a ball in the village.
These baby shower ideas are sure to add some much-needed spice to the event. And they can be so fun to plan, especially if you have a bunch of people helping you out. They will need some work though, so make sure that you start your planning well in advance.
