Girl Baby Showers
Theme baby showers are becoming quite popular and enable an exciting event to be even more fun. Some popular girl baby shower themes include young animals, such as baby turtles, puppies, or elephants, characters, such as cowgirls and princesses, or others, such as safaris or cherry blossoms. Follow these simple steps to creating your memorable theme baby shower.
Set the tone of the party, including the colors you will use to decorate with, and let guests know what to expect with the invitations. Include the fact that this is a theme shower in the information. You can find cute invitations in bulk online or at your favorite party supply store. If the theme matches the decal of the future girl's room, you may ask guests to bring items that match the theme for the new mom. For instance, if you're throwing a ladybug themed shower, ask guests to bring ladybug pillows, blankets, and even lamps for the nursery. Alternatively, if you're going with a princess theme, ask guests to bring pink and silver clothes and decorations for the new child.
The decorations should create the mood for your celebration. For instance, if you've chosen a little cowgirl party, include cacti and horse pin-ups throughout the room. Consider making centerpieces out of cowboy hats, perhaps by filling them with flowers that match the color scheme you've chosen. Or, for an elegant cherry blossom theme, spread cherry blossoms throughout the room. Also choose plates, napkins, and cups with cherry blossoms on them. Decorate the room with red, black, pink, and white balloons and flower petals. You may also want to include cherry blossom scented soaps and lotions in the bathroom for guests to use.
Even the games at your shower can match the theme you've chosen. For instance, if you've gone with a baby animal theme, your games can center on animals. Whether these include a word search, animal bingo, or a game in which you must list songs with animals in the title, both young and old are sure to enjoy this. Or, perhaps you'd like to have a Disney trivia game in which you ask questions about animated movies whose main characters are animals (such as Dumbo, Lady and the Tramp, and Tarzan).
The food offered at your shower is your final opportunity to remind guests of your theme. With any theme, you can bake cookies that are decorated to match your decorations. Also, you may set the food tables in designs that align with your theme, such as the shape of a biscuit for a pink puppy party. For a cowgirl party, include Southwestern food, such as tacos, dips, and even a nacho bar. The nacho bar may include chicken, beef, beans, guacamole, salsa, cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes, among other items. This allows guests to choose what they want the most. On the other hand, for a pretty princess party, make things dainty and pink. Include miniature sandwiches and cupcakes with pink frosting and sprinkles. You may also wish to include a pink punch and serve it in elegant glasses.
