Throwing a fun and adorable baby shower may be easier than you think. By choosing a simple theme for your shower to follow, your planning and preparation have a greater focus. This enhanced focus eliminates added choices and channels your creativity to produce a fantastic baby shower. Keep your shower successfully simple by considering one of the following five baby shower themes.
This cheerful, balloon inspired theme provides a simple, colorful, and whimsical approach to honor the soon-to-be mom. With the "About to Pop" theme, decorations are lively yet inexpensive, using mostly helium balloon. Even more texture and color may be added by hanging some handmade tissue paper pom-poms. Balloons can also be the main focus of the invitations and party favors. Darling "Ready to Pop" invitations can be found online at Minted or Babyshower-Invitations, both linked below in the "Sources" section. Finally, keep the "popping" theme rolling by offering an assortment of popcorns, cake pops, or other foods that play well with the theme.
Honor the new mother-to-be with a fun and festive baby shower brunch. Decorate the room with oven mitts, aprons, whisks and other baking essentials to enhance the "Bun in the Oven" theme. The food at the shower can be an array of brunch items including some kind of sticky bun or cinnamon rolls. Check out Storkie or Invitation Consultants, both linked below, to find adorable "Bun in the Oven" invitations.
Nothing is as precious as a new "little peanut," and it is easy to go nuts celebrating with this theme. Peanuts can take center stage at your shower for both decoration and refreshments. Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches take on a much more sophisticated look when cut out with a floral shaped cookie cutter and peanut butter really shines in deserts such as peanut butter cups or peanut butter fudge. You guests may also enjoy eating raw peanuts from rustic buckets or appreciate a large cylindrical vase of whole peanuts with a beautiful floral arrangement sprouting through.

A fun and simple theme for a baby shower is easily accomplished by focusing on the seasons. Spring showers may implement softer, pastel shades of baby boy or baby girl colors and focus on traditional symbols of spring. For girls, this may be butterflies and flowers, and for boys, you may choose rubber duckies or caterpillars. The food may also take on a spring feel by featuring lemon dishes and other light menu items. The same ideas can be applied for fall showers. Pumpkins are great for decorating as well as featuring in the food for an autumn shower. Other fall icons include colored leaves, squash, owls, and even spiders for a creepy crawly baby shower.
One of the most simple and fun themes for a baby shower is a "baby" theme. Bottles, storks, rubber duckies, and diapers with safety pins are all iconic images of a brand new baby. Try stringing a clothesline adorned with new baby outfits across the room, and incorporate traditional baby items around the refreshment table for added decoration.
