Oh Baby, Oh Baby: Six Unique Baby Shower Themes

In the past a baby shower was the gathering of family and friends of the mother-to-be. The guests would bring gifts for the baby and refreshments were served. It was a traditional baby shower but now it is a custom to have baby baby shower themes. There are a variety of baby shower themes to choose from today.

Tea Party Theme
The tables have floral centerpieces with linen tablecloths. The room could be decorated with stuffed animals and the guests are asked to dress up for the occasion. Guest would bring a baby gift and tea, scones, salads and fruits can be served.

Baby Brunch Theme This type of shower is usually held late morning. The shower includes traditional games and baby gifts. Food is usually non-alcoholic drinks, quiches, fruit tarts and a bundt cake. The tables are set with white linen to make it a classy affair.

Pampering Mom Theme
This type of shower is usually given to a mother who already has one child or more at home. Linen tablecloths with flowers on each table, salads, finger rolls and fancy chocolates make this shower unique. The gifts are for pampering the mother. Gifts could be for comfy cloths or gift certificates for restaurants, takeout food or for a spa and manicures.

Deep Freeze ThemeThis is a great idea. The guests bring cooked food that can be frozen and used after the baby is born. After all, the new mommy-to-be won't have much time to cook.

Diaper Bonanza Theme
The host puts together a gift basket with cheese, spreads, wine, fruit, crackers and maybe a wine opener. The invitations would state there is a raffle and you get one entry for each package of diapers or baby wipes given. The mother-to-be will be surprised how many packages of diapers she will receive as gifts.

Books for the Baby Theme
This could be a garden party and the guests would bring a favorite children’s book. It could be fairy tale, classic, bedtime and story books. The guests could also bring a stuffed animal that goes with the story in the book.
