BABY SHOWER NEW YEAR THEME

Happy 2016 from Baby Shower 101
Having a baby shower during the New Years, Winter and January season make the start to a new year fun and exciting. There are so many baby shower ideas that can be tied into the shower. Use the symbolic "baby time" in the theme of the party. You can find many ideas on the web for drawing or purchasing baby shower favors that tie in father and baby time. As a baby shower theme bring in the winter wonderland cool colors or go with an eloquent new year's gold and black. Bring in the horns and top hats but have them state baby shower! Confetti is another great baby shower decoration for January. 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 and plan their year early. 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.Since the weather is rough during January, make sure to plan a baby shower inside and in an area that is easy to get to. See if you can help the mommy to be with anything she needs as winter is a tough time to have a little one, especially if you live in the snow!

If you have your baby shower right before or after New Years, it can work out very well as a baby shower New Years theme. A few ideas are to use the theme of "New Year", by having everyone say what their resolutions are. It is also a great time to give by having everyone donate to a charity of less fortunate people, especially to a single mother's or children's organization. A cute baby shower idea is to have everyone sign a 2016 or Baby Time theme board (i.e., in the shape of a clock or baby with a clock). Another idea is to have "Father" or "Mother" Time on sheets of paper with a text bubble next to them or on a big poster board and give the parent's to be some ideas that would be helpful for their preparing for their little "Baby Time".

Symbolic candy, including candy clocks and miniature new years candies are great to place on tables of the baby shower. Serving finger food out of clocks or things with Happy 2016 as well as spreading colorful decorations and shredded paper/tinsel on tables is a nice touch for the new year celebration. The Baby Shower New Years theme is still cute and works for the beginning of January as well as the days prior to New Years. Decorations can be little baby plastic dolls in diapers with clocks with a 2016 on their diaper, signifying baby time, are symbolic along with a mother or father time doll or decoration.

Baby shower decorations can be purchased at any party store that sells new years decorations or created for the New Year as well as cups, place settings and other items. The use of black, white, gold, and silver are festive for the Dec/Jan season. Balloons and Poppers can also be used and Champaign can be given as a drink! Party hats with "It's a Boy" or "It's a Girl" with 2016 can be a party favor and festive with the theme. Baby Blocks can spell out Happy New Years 2016 which can be given as a gift after the party is over but used as decorations.

Wall decorations can be New Years related, with the use of streamers, balloons, and firework art to bring in the new year. A game can be played to guess when the baby is coming in 2016 which can be emailed to everyone when the baby actually comes. A time capsule can be created with pictures of the baby shower event as well as writings from the baby shower guests for the little one to open when they are older (a shoe box can be used or a small box which will be tapped up and put away for the baby to open when they are older. Everyone can contribute by placing words of wisdom, funny little sayings along with money if they want to. It will be a memorable box to open when the child is a teenager or young adult.

If you are one of the lucky ones having a baby shower in January on or around New Years, there are so many wonderful ways to tie in the new year celebration! Below we have listed some of the more unique ideas for celebrating the baby shower new years:

Incorporate the holiday season with new year decorations including poppers, baby shower confetti and father/baby time cutouts. Play the baby shower game of baby time and father time. Have everyone guess what time and date the baby will be born. Also have the father to be guess the time and give out baby shower gifts to who guessed the correct time and who guessed the same as the father to be (father time).

Decorate with little clocks, baby shower streamers and horns. You can find a lot of baby time decorations, wall hangings and dolls to decorate the bringing in of the new year and new baby! Get party hats in the symbolic boy or girl color if you know the gender of the baby. Hand out chocolate or bubble gum candy cigars which adds to the festivities. Create a 2016 time capsule for everyone to give one memorable 2016 item that the baby-to-be can look at when they are older.

Since the weather is rough during January, make sure to plan a baby shower inside and in an area that is easy to get to. Remind your shower guests on how to dress during the cold season. See if you can help the mommy to be with anything she needs as winter is a tough time to have a little one, especially if you live in the snow!
