BABY SHOWER CHRISTMAS AND WINTER THEMES


Christmas
If you want to tie the theme of Christmas into your baby shower, paint bells, mini trees, stars with blue or pink (if you know the gender of the baby). The room can look like a winter wonderland (use cotton with glitter) and the food can be festive for the season. Gingerbread and candy canes can say "It's a boy" or "It's a girl". Use the winter wonderland as a baby shower theme and dress up a tree with little words of wisdom from the baby shower guests.

If you are one of the lucky ones planning a baby shower during the Christmas and holiday season, there are many great baby shower ideas you can do to tie Winter holidays into the festive event. As for baby shower decorations create snow flakes out of construction paper and hang them up around the room (possibly even threading them and hanging them from the ceiling). Make a pregnant snow-woman for laughs. You can even get crushed ice and make a mommy snow woman for a centerpiece around the baby shower food. Speaking of food, serve festive finger food sandwiches that may include winter vegetables, turkey, cranberries, and don't forget the eggnog.

For Christmas, it is fun to bring in the green and red colors to the baby shower along with symbolic items like a mommy and baby snowman, gingerbread house, lights and even dress. Light a fire and have everyone gather around for songs. A fun baby shower game is to make holiday carols that incorporate the parents to be and their little one. Serve turkey and ham finger sandwiches along with cranberry and eggnog. Have some fun with a winter wonderland baby shower theme.

Can you really make a snowman out of Pampers diapers? Well Lil' Baby Cakes has done just that creating two snowman themed diaper cakes. They are featuring a pink snowgirl design and a blue snowman design. There diaper cakes are great for holiday themed baby showers and would make a perfect themed baby shower centerpiece.


Hanukah
If you want to tie Hanukah into the shower, use the blue and white colors as well as make festive foods like latkes and brisket. Decorate the room with blue or pink dreidels (if you know the gender of the baby). For Hanukah, bring in the dreidels, latkes and colors of blue and white. A fun baby shower idea is to light candles and each say a memory you have of the mommy to be growing up. Play dreidel games for pampers or other baby items that are given to the parents to be after the baby shower as baby shower gifts. For Hanukah, bring in the dreidels, latkes and colors of blue and white. A fun baby shower idea is to light candles and each say a memory you have of the mommy to be growing up.

Play dreidel games for pampers or other baby items that are given to the parents to be after the baby shower as baby shower gifts. The room can be festive with lights since it is the festival of lights. You can also play a baby shower game of spin the dreidel for gelt - gifts. Have all the baby shower participants start out with a bunch of baby shower chocolate coins, pins or small symbolic items you have. Each person places one of these items in a pot or middle section between the girls. Have each person spin the dreidel top and whatever letter it lands on is what you get. The letters represent the following:

  Each of the four sides: (Nun), (Gimel), (Hey), (Shin),
* Nun - nischt - "nothing" - the next player spins
* Gimel - gantz - "all" - the player takes the entire pot and everyone other than that baby shower player places one back in the pot
* Hey - halb - "half" - the player takes half of the pot, rounding up if there is an odd number
* Shin - shtel - "put in" - the player puts one or two in the pot

You can give a baby shower door prize to whoever wins the most after 20 minutes. Have some fun and also make up some songs about the mommy-to-be using Hanukah jingles.


Kwanzaa
If you want to tie Kwanzaa into a holiday theme, use the colors black, red and green for the room. Tie the seven principals into the theme in how it relates to the baby. People can dress in festive clothing as well as the seven light Kinara placed at the party. Kwanzaa is a family holiday and focus can be given to family values.

Vegetables can be served at the party since it coincides with what is symbolic of Kwanzaa. I hope these ideas help you in planning your December party. For Kwanza, bring in the beautiful colors of green, red and yellow. Pass around the Unity cup and each say advice for the mommy to be or a sentimental message.

 


HOLIDAY RECIPE
A great Christmas, Kwanza, Hanukah baby shower dessert recipe is our highly addictive baby shower butter cake:

1 pkg yellow cake mix 4 eggs 1 16oz box of confectioner's sugar
2 sticks of butter (separately melted) 1 8oz pkg. cream cheese (softened) 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat Oven to 350. You will need to mixing bowls to mix two different things (the cake and the topping). In one mixing bowl, beat the baby shower cake mix, 1 stick of melted butter and 2 eggs until well blended. This will be fairly stiff. Press into a 9x13 cake pan. In another mixing bowl, beat the other stick of melted butter, 2 eggs, sugar, softened cream cheese and vanilla extract until well blended. Pour this baby shower butter topping mixture over the bottom layer and bake for 40 minutes (or until golden brown top and a little jiggly in the center). Let it cool and place the baby shower butter cake in a container or in saran-wrap. You can decorate the top of the cake with frosting and make your favorite holiday picture with the baby shower theme! You will have your baby shower guests talking on how good it is!

Tis the season to be having baby showers and a great time to tie in the theme of your favorite end of the year festivities. Use the Season's Greetings theme when you send out the baby shower invitations by adding a little confetti or holiday symbols. It is also fun to use the colors of the season when conducting your baby shower party planning.

Whether green and red or blue and white, have some fun with the baby shower decorations. Use some mother-baby symbols like a big tree and baby tree, the nativity scene, a large ornament and baby ornament as well as a big dreidel and small dreidel or big and small menorahs. It is always fun to tie in this season with the holiday themes.

Place up some festive lights which electrify the shower and contribute to the excitement of the season. It is always fun to tie in some baby shower games. A favorite of the season is the white elephant game where everyone brings an extra wrapped gift under 10.00 and places them on a table with random numbers given out of a hat and the first baby shower guest getting to choose what gift they want followed by the next person either taking their gift or another from the table. You can play this in between the mommy-to-be opening up her baby shower gifts.

Make sure to get baby shower invites out early since it is a big time for other holiday parties. If having it at a venue, make sure they have availability and if outdoors, let everyone know so they dress accordingly as it gets much colder!During the holiday season if you are having a baby shower and need a great baby shower gift, check out our top baby shower gifts. This is the season for giving gifts, baby shower gifts that is. A great gift this season for new parents is the newborn care video giving parents the most frequently asked questions they will take to their pediatrician. It also has a manual of most common questions. A great stocking stuffer!


Going green and going lean: For those who are trying to save during this economic downturn, it is great to create your own baby shower decorations and to use plain wrap or newspaper to wrap the baby shower gift as well as yarn to tie a bow. Use recycled paper in doing your share to save the environment. Look for coupons and plan the baby shower early, asking for a discount rate if you are having the shower at a restaurant or facility, as many are willing to do this in a downward market. Most importantly, have a great and memorable time wherever you have the baby shower.

There are so many ways to tie in New Years to the baby shower theme. We also have tons of other ideas throughout the site and hope you enjoy our information. Have a great time at the upcoming party and we hope to help out in your planning with babyshower101.com.

Get out the baby shower invitations as early as possible since many of your baby shower guests may make plans to go out of town. A great baby shower game to play is the simple hot potato but use a baby time doll or some other baby symbol. Play the mommy-to-be's favorite music which can be mixed CD that someone makes and gives as a baby shower gift.

Winter Baby Shower

Having a baby shower in the month of December is exciting since there are so many warm festivities taking place for you and your family! It is fun to incorporate the holiday season with your baby shower by bringing in your favorite elements. A great decoration idea in December will depend on what religion you are celebrating:

Tie in the baby shower party favors in with the Winter season. You also need to make sure and do the baby shower planning in advance since there are many other events that occur (i.e., holiday business parties) that tie up resources. Another great idea is to give to those in need (besides the new parents) and donate to a favorite charity of the mommy-to-be.

Of course the holiday baby shower will be filled with gifts which can be opened at the end of the party and incorporated into a game of baby shower bingo. Make sure there is a lot of baby shower planning early since a lot of parties occur during the December season. Most of all, have a ball at the baby shower and make sure to take lots of pictures.

There are so many ways to tie in the holiday season to the baby shower theme and we have tons of other wonderful ideas throughout the site and hope you enjoy our information. Have a great time at the upcoming party and we hope to help out in your planning with babyshower101.com.

Have a great shower and Seasons Greetings!
