BABY SHOWER SPRING THEME
The year is almost halfway over already and it
is time for a baby shower in June! There is
nothing like the weather heating up for you to
have a baby shower party outside to enjoy the
weather. Just make sure to listen to the weather
reports and have a back-up plan since there is
still rain in certain parts of the states.
This season, it is great to bring in flowers as
baby shower decorations. You can also have
little plants in the middle of tables as a baby
shower centerpiece and give them away at the end
of the shower. Since we are moving towards
summer, it is great to serve healthy and energy
finger foods like cucumber and egg
sandwiches on wheat or pita bread. Serve light
wine or sangria with lots of fruit and make a
non-alcoholic one for the mommy-to-be.
Choose some great
baby shower games to set the mood and space
them out throughout the baby shower. Our
favorite is baby shower bingo where you can
place numbers on each of the
baby shower gifts and have the mommy to be
choose them randomly while everyone else plays
bingo. Share baby stories of those who have
known the mommy-to-be throughout her life.
Create or purchase
baby shower invitations and have everyone
write a memory about the mommy or daddy-to-be as
well as one parent advice so someone can make a
memory book out of all the cards that come back.
Make sure to take lots of
pictures and assign someone this task as
well as being in charge of the video camera. It
is cute to have baby shower favors for the
guests that are inexpensive or that are made by
the mommy or her friends as a keepsake. Cute
ideas are to use jelly bellies of your favorite
colors or other baby candy. Make the baby shower
festive with wall hangings, balloons and dress
the mommy-to-be in a cute
baby shower shirt.
Spring is here and so is the time to plan
a baby shower! May is an excellent
month for throwing a memorable
with many ideas to choose from. With Spring
here, it is fun to tie
in the colors and symbols to the
baby shower planning.
Use floral centerpieces or wall decorations, representing
newborn on the
way. Bring in the colors of Spring early to the
baby shower decorations
by using pastels, bright colors and also
different shades of green.
A really fun and easy baby shower
game among the 200 other free games we have on
our site. For
baby shower food
have some fun with the season and be healthy by
going green. Serve Cucumber finger sandwiches,
salads, grilled artichoke, Broccoli with cheese
topping and serve your favorite drink green by
adding a little food coloring to the mix (but
not for the mommy to be since she doesn't need
the chemicals). Check out our new "foods
to avoid" for pregnancy.
Choose a baby shower venue that still takes into
consideration the weather since it may still not
be so nice outside until a little later in the
year. When thinking to plan for
baby shower gifts
a cute idea is to get a cute frame and take many
baby shower pictures,
and arranging them in the frame for the
mommy-to-be with a special engraved message or
message added to the collage.
The most important thing is that you give
yourself enough time to
that you have a memorable time.
If you are planning a baby shower during the
Spring, there are many excellent ideas as
the weather warms up. Make sure to choose a
venue early as many places that have outdoor
seating start to fill up.
Flowers are very popular for
baby shower decorations as the start to the
summer floral arrangements come into season. Use
bright colors in floral arrangements or baby
shower decorations including bright blues,
pinks, reds or go with pastel to soften,
depending on the mood you want to set.
baby shower games to play both indoors and
out. A great baby shower idea is to have
everyone sign a board of the mommy and daddy to
be when they were babies as well as a few
pictures of the mommy-to-be in all her pregnant
glory. You can also pass out cardboard cut-outs
of pacifiers, bottles, etc and have people place
their advice to the new parents.
Follow this up with taking
baby shower pictures of each guest and place
both their picture and advice card in a baby
shower photo album which makes a great
baby shower gift. Other great baby shower
gifts in this economy are gift cards for
essential items which you can be assured the new
parents will appreciate.
Some baby shower decorations that work well are
jellybellyís that are mixed or are blues or
pinks, baby shower candy cigars, and confetti to
spread on tables. Be festive with balloons and
streamers which liven up any room.
Motherís Day is another important celebration to
add to the party by honoring the grandparents
and in-laws. Make sure to provide a time to
thank those who have helped with the baby
shower. It is customary to provide small
meaningful gifts to those important to the
mommy-to-be. We hope you have a wonderful baby
shower in May.
