BABY SHOWER SUMMER THEME


It's time to party for the baby shower - Summer style! - This festive party time makes a great theme for any baby shower since there are so many things you can do to tie in summer to the theme of the party. A few ideas are to use the theme of either hot or cool where you play games like "Hot Potato with a Diaper" (see the baby shower games page), listen to summer related songs like Summer Time by Will Smith or Here Comes The Sun by The Beatles, and place items that coincide with Summer such as beach/sand, sun, warm colors (red, orange, and yellow, etc.

Decorations can be purchased for the summer season and cups, place settings and other items can also have a summer theme. Wall decorations can be summer festive with the use of beach items on tables such as buckets, shovels and other items their baby can enjoy! A great baby shower game to play is to have everyone write a message for the mother and father to be on cut out sun's or summer festive item cards and present them to the mother to be by placing them in a keepsake box. Have the mother to be read each one out loud as she takes them out of the box which makes for a sentimental and funny time. Shells and other items can be used to decorate the room.

There are so many ways to tie in Summer 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.

Summer planning for a baby shower can be really fun since there are many more ideas for shower venues (indoor and outdoors) due to the warm weather. Get into the season by creating a baby shower theme of summer by bringing in warm colors (reds, yellows, orange, and vibrant colors) into the baby shower decorations. Use sunflowers, cut outs of sun, beach and palm trees to make the room festive. You can sprinkle sand on the tables or baby shower centerpieces. Cut out summer icons and have the baby shower guests write down some baby advice for the new parents. Get a camera and take pictures of each baby shower guest and place each photo with the flower to place into a memory scrapbook! There are other great baby shower photo opportunities which we have more of on our photo page.

A cute baby shower game for the beginning of summer is called "Whose Water Breaks First. All you need is clear plastic cups and minature plastic babies. Prior to the day of the baby shower, fill plastic cups with water, enough to cover the plastic baby toys at least halfway (since they may float). Place the cups in the freezer until frozen stiff (you need to prep the night before). The day of the baby shower party, give a cup to all the baby shower participants as they arrive. Whoever can melt the water the quickest or their water breaks gets the prize. The baby shower attendees can try to melt by blowing hot air on it or putting it in the sun (everything goes, let them get creative).

A cute baby shower gift is to get the mommy-to-be some baby beachware including pails, shovels, sifters, beach chair with covering or anything else the baby can play with at the beach.

Another great gift is a customized baby t-shirt for both mommy and baby! You can add a cute Summer saying like "I'm ready for the summer" or creating a summer sun where the pregnant mommies tummy protrudes. A great baby shower gift idea for the month of June and July is to give Gift Cards to the parents-to-be's favorite stores. This way, you know you are giving the new parents something that they want and need. Just make sure to choose those stores that you know are not closing due to the recession.

It is a great time to get outdoors and enjoy the weather! Just make sure to check the weather report to make sure there are no June showers. A great idea is to choose a baby shower venue that you can enjoy inside and out! Remember that mommy-to-be may feel uncomfortable in the sun so have her dress appropriately with fans and air conditioning if at an outside venue!

Baby shower food can stick with the holiday spirit by being placing sun flowers around the plates and tables. Strawberries, grapes, cherrys and fragrant pineapples are in season and make great munchies! Cucumber finger sandwiches, celery, salads, and colorful jelly bellies are fun and great tasting! Check out our baby shower food and drink page for updated recipes.

The year is almost halfway over already and it is time for a baby shower in July! 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.
 


Having a baby shower in September is an excellent time since the weather is great and there are a wide variety of venues to have your shower, whether indoors or out! Just make sure to listen to the weather reports and have a back-up plan since there is still rain or heat waves in certain parts of the states. This September season, it is great to bring in bright colored 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. A great baby shower idea is to use a spice like basil plants as they are functional to give away and to cook with! Baby shower summer months make it great to serve healthy and energy producing finger  foods like watermelon, oranges, 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.

Baby Shower - Waning Summer

It is almost the end of summer, which makes a great time for any baby shower planning. You may have the weather on your side to have some fun in the sun. Choose a baby shower location that is right for the mommy-to-be; does she like the indoors, out or a little of both? You can have it at a favorite restaurant, home party or just about anywhere that is weather friendly!

Bring in a baby shower theme that is based on the season or something the mommy-to-be enjoys. Whether it is the beach, summertime, butterflies, princess/prince theme, have fun with it. Get the baby shower decorations that match with the ideas you have. There are so many wonderful ideas which may mean a pre-shower meeting with all the girls who want to participate!

Make sure to get everyone's emails early and even create a blog site that all the girls can feed into and share their thoughts. Its free which is the best part of creating a site like that where all can communicate back and forth. Also make sure the baby shower invitations go out as early as possible since you want to make sure everyone can attend. Include glitter, summer confetti, or if you know the gender of the baby, bring in blues, teals and pinks!

Whatever type of shower you have, make sure you bring in some baby shower games as we have so many to choose from in making the party memorable and entertaining. We have some great helpful hints on our baby shower etiquette section that will help in baby shower planning.

In this economy many are trying to save which is why we have excellent and economical baby shower gift ideas on our site. Baby shower party favors are also very reasonable and make the party fun. No matter where you are planning on having your September baby shower, just make sure to take lots of great photos and enjoy the time with your friends.

Happy End of Summer
