A baby shower is the perfect way to celebrate with friends and family when there is a new arrival on the way. If you are organising a baby shower for a friend or family member, Pinterest and Instagram are a great place to start with inspiration for fun games, themes and décor ideas. We looked at some of the most popular baby shower decoration ideas to kickstart your planning.
Have a Baby Shower Brunch
If you are after an Instagram worthy baby shower, then take inspiration from Irish beauty blogger and new mum Rosie Connolly’s ‘baby brunch’ shower. The Dublin Mum was treated to a baby shower brunch at a bar in Dublin but you could create something similar in your own home. A variety of pastries, coffee and tea should keep your guests happy.
Build a ‘Mum-osa’ Bar
Set up a Mum-osa bar in your home which will get your guests capturing those picture perfect boomerangs on Instagram. All you will need to create this baby shower theme is some champagne flutes, fruit juice, a selection of fresh fruits and a few bottles of alcohol-free sparkling wine. If you’re feeling really creative, make a DIY table sign to add that extra special touch!
Make a DIY Flower Wall for Photos
Nothing says Instagram worthy like a flower wall. If you’re planning a baby shower for a Mum to be then get creative and make a DIY flower wall for all the guests to get memorable pictures with. Use a canvas to stick artificial or paper flowers to using a glue gun or even superglue. Remember, you don’t have to stick with the blue and pink themes, white, yellow or the expectant mum’s favourite colour can be just as nice.
Cherish the Memories with a Guestbook
Set up a table surrounded with flowers to host a special guestbook on. Baby shower guests can then share advice or special memories for the expecting Mum that she can cherish forever. Grab a few disposable cameras and allow guests to add a picture to personalise their page. This will be a sentimental keepsake for the mum-to-be as she can look back on the lovely thoughts after the baby arrives.
Give Baby Shower Favours
Keep the celebration going after the baby shower and send your guests home with mini bottles of prosecco which they can pop when the baby arrives. Gift tags can be purchased to dress the bottles up with a personalised message to remember the special occasion. If you have a large crowd coming and are trying to stick to a budget then don’t worry about not doing favours, guests will be just as happy taking home some leftover buns!
Whatever you decide to do, ensure it is in keeping with what the mum-to-be would like as it is her special day. To find out more information about baby shower trends in Ireland, take a look at our Baby Shower Boom.
