Baby Shower Themes for Girls
Theme 1: The Bunny Baby Shower
As our namesake, maybe it’s no surprise that our first suggestions is all about the bunnies. But hey, these little creatures are just too adorable to pass up! There are tons of fun bunny-themed baby shower ideas to get you going, starting with these unique bunny baby shower invitations from Kelli Murray:
With bunny illustrations that look straight out of a classic children’s book and a wonderful handcrafted design, these invitations will have your guests eagerly hopping toward your baby registry!
When it comes to affordable decorations, all you really need are some unique paper designs, a stencil, and some elementary skills with a pair of scissors. Check out the hanging paper bunnies from Kara’s Party Ideas:
Bring it all together with several bouquets of wild flowers and some springtime snacks (did somebody say carrots?), and you’re well on your way to a memorable and creative party.
Oh! And don’t forget the cake. This bunny cake from the Hello Naomi blog has all the right ingredients for a baby shower, down to the smallest decorative details:
When it comes to bunny baby shower gifts, there’s no shortage of cuddly collectables and cozy outfits to choose from. This is our specialty. Pick up an affordable – but immensely popular – Silly Buddy Bunny in warm white coloring. This hoppy fellow will hold on to little one’s pacifier and can easily attach car seats, strollers, and cribs.
For apparel, check out The Original Cuddle Coat, featuring soft white faux cuddle fur, fully lined in a pale pink satin and offers a bow accented closure at neck. A surprise Carrot Rattle is hidden in the pocket.
And when it comes time to lounge around indoors, the Sweet Pleat and Pant Set two-piecet is the perfect look to while away the hours – the very peak of bunny high fashion. White polka dots adorn this cheerful and charming pink two piece outfit.
Theme 2: The Garden Baby Shower
What better way to honor the newest princess in your life than with a classic garden party? The garden baby shower is a versatile theme that you can take in several different directions.
Is mom-to-be an avid gardener or lover of all things veggies? Go for a garden vegetable theme, like this wonderful shower we found on Design Lively:
This baby shower is all about gardening, from the charming vegetable-can centerpieces to the pea-in-a-pod guessing game and "something wonderful is growing!" printables. And of course, no vegetable garden shower is complete without the fresh and healthy snacks, like cucumber sandwiches, chopped veggies, lemon bars, and more. For dessert? Seems like carrot cake would be the logical choice!
Another direction you can go with a garden baby shower is the garden tea party theme. If you’re expecting comfortable weather, throwing the shower in an actual garden is ideal, though you can certainly set up a charming tea party indoors as well. Check out this perfectly planned Vintage Garden Party from The Glamorous House Wife for some inspiration.
For food and drink, there’s the obvious choice: lots of tea! You can also mix and match with some smaller baked desserts instead of one large cake. Request a few baking-inclined friends and family members to bring homemade cupcakes, scones, cookies, and other tasty treats.
Of course, several baked goodies and a large cake are not mutually exclusive. A cake blooming with springtime color and flavor is never a bad idea. To the right, check out a wonderful white velvet cake with strawberry mousse found on Love & Zest!
While baby girl-to-be may be a bit small and uncoordinated for actual garden tools and vegetable seeds, there are several other unique garden baby shower gifts to discover. Need a few extra guests for future baby girl’s tea parties?
How about Elsie? This lovable stuffed doll is dressed in a beautiful cotton and tulle dress, ready for some quality teatime.
If you’re thinking momma-to-be needs some go-to newborn entertainment before worrying about more tea parties, check out the Bunnies by the Bay Carrot Rattle. This affordable gift is a perfect option or the veggie garden baby shower, andfeatures the embroidered words “Shake, rattle, and nibble.”
For the moms who are eager to raise a sharp little bookworm, pick up one of the Bunnies by the Bay abacus books. “Counting Daisies” will teach little ones how to count to five with all their favorite characters.
Theme 3: The Birdie Baby Shower
Looking to liven up an upcoming baby shower? Put a bird on it! There are so many ways to incorporate lovable little birds into your baby shower decorations, games, and gifts. From chicks that are “about to hatch” to tweeting sparrows and woodland bird nests, here we’ll share some of our favorite bird-themed baby shower ideas.
A baby shower’s theme all starts with the invitations. Stylist Annette Joseph planned a fantastic bird baby shower, complete with these minimalist, earthy invitations:
You’ll also notice the bird-nest themed favor, which includes a lollipop and a scented egg-shaped soap.
For bird-themed food and sweet treats, start things off with delectable Bird’s Nest Ice Cream Cupcakes from Bubbly Nature Creations. Made with vanilla ice cream, fudge sauce, candy eggs, and chocolate shavings, you’re all but guaranteed to have zero leftovers.
So what does one get for the future little baby bird? You could start with the Kiddo Romper Gift Set from Bunnies by the Bay. “Chirp” the bluebird adorns this bib, bunsie, and birdie ensemble – and the feathered friend is sure to be by baby’s side for years to come.
When it’s all said and done, a baby shower theme should reflect the anticipation, excitement and nurturing love that each mother-to-be feels leading up to the little baby bunny’s grand appearance! If you’re on the hunt for baby shower ideas for girls, you’ll find plenty of creative inspiration on Etsy, Pinterest, Bunnies by the Bay, and many other blogs and sites.
