If you're throwing a baby shower during the spring months, there are lots of ways to incorporate a festive, seasonal theme into the party. We have compiled several spring baby shower themes that can work for an indoor or outdoor shower and at a variety of venues. Regardless of the theme, you want the mother-to-be to be comfortable, relaxed and taken care of, start to finish. It's important to have her favorite foods and drinks there, as well as all her friends and family. Here are our unique and very special spring baby shower ideas for that very well-deserving almost-mommy.
The Birds and the Bees: When no one knows the sex of the baby, this spring baby shower idea is the perfect theme.
Start with a yellow and white color scheme for tableclothes, plates, etc. and then accent with vases full of fresh spring flowers. Use bee decorating details (can be found at most craft stores) as much as possible throughout the party space. Decorate the cake with flowers and little buzzing bees. Punchbowl has the perfect bee-themed digital invitation, too! Food and desserts can be honey-based - brunch with honey-wheat pancakes, fresh fruit and maple-honey bacon, for example.
French Countryside: If the baby is going to be a little girl, throw a sweet spring baby shower that incorporates the simplicity and grace of a French picnic.
The color scheme can be earth tones, lavender and natural greens. Decorate with wildflowers, lavender and use empty wine bottles to hold candles. Make a shower banner out of twigs or greens and hang over the main table. Party favors can be little glass votives with a pretty French-scented candle, a small silver frame or dried herbs. The menu can include items like potato-leek soup, beef tenderloin, baguettes and creamy cheese and a variety of Petit Fours.
Spring Animals on the Farm: For a baby boy, use this spring baby shower theme, which incorporates all the cute spring animals that also make their appearance at this time of year.
Use decorations that feature baby animals like lambs, goats, bunnies, piglets and chicks. Use the farm theme to design floral centerpieces that incorporate hay and colorful hankerchiefs. Give each guest a small gardening hoe with gloves, tied with twine. Serve a menu of farm-fresh items like locally-made cheeses, chicken cutlets in a cream sauce, spring vegetables and berry pie.
Make the baby shower an event to remember with a theme that fits the mom's personality and entertains guests with beautiful decor, wonderful food and great company.
