Most recently was my sister-in-law's shower with a bird's nest theme. I never would have thought of it (I guess my mother-in-law did; we co-hosted it but I can't remember how the theme came up!) but a bird on the nest is a really cute metaphor for pregnancy and "nesting" to prepare for baby. We had a gorgeous cake, adorable favors, and a cute game all related to the theme.
For our cousin that was expecting twins, my mother-in-law and I threw a "Twice the Love" shower. The cake and invitations featured that slogan, and I made my first diaper cake for the occasion.
I hosted a shower for a girl at our previous church with a rubber ducky theme: rubber ducks "swimming" in the punch bowl, little ducks on sticks stuck into each cheese on the cheese tray, etc.
Another shower I attended had a bird theme to correspond with the baby's birdie/owl nursery. The centerpiece was a very modern, creative diaper cake. There were also handcrafted paper birds hanging from ribbon in the doorway. Very cute.
I went to a shower for two cousins born close to one another whose names were Ruby and Scarlett--so what could the theme be other than the color red? They had all the guests wear red, and the decor was red, I think we ate red velvet cake, etc. This is a neat idea that I could imagine being cute for a wedding shower for a last name Brown or Black, or maybe a baby Goldie or Kelly?
I'm just now realizing I never blogged about the baby showers that were thrown for me when I was pregnant with Kate, and I only have pics from one of them! (I know I scrapbooked all of them, so I guess people gave me prints from their pics.) Guess I was a little preoccupied at that time in my life!
What are some fun baby shower themes and ideas you've seen or used?
