Baby Shower Themes: The Most Important Part of Your Shower

Don't be tempted to skip baby shower themes in your planning!

It's amazing how many people never give baby shower themes a thought. They figure, the point is to give Mom gifts, and as long as we're doing that, the theme doesn't really matter. They couldn't be more wrong. A theme is the most important part of your shower, and all of your baby shower ideas will come from your central theme. Here's why you absolutely must have a theme for your shower.

Why Themes Matter

There are two main arguments in favour of baby shower themes. First of all, having a theme makes everything fit together much more nicely than it otherwise would. Walking into a room with a few haphazard decorations and munchies doesn't compare to walking into themed baby shower.

Thinking it's too much work to come up with baby shower theme ideas? Good news: the second argument is, having a theme makes your life much easier! It really does. Instead of worrying about what kind of baby shower decorations, recipes, and gifts to have, you can just default to your theme. You'll know exactly what to look for and what you need, and it will take a lot of pressure off you.

Baby shower theme ideas

Hopefully, you now agree that baby shower themes make life a lot easier. Given that, what sort of baby shower themes should you use?

Themes are many and varied, and you can find thousands of ideas online. Whether you're someone who prefers to keep things simple or someone who absolutely loves to play hostess, there are many themes that will suit your style.

If you like to keep things simple:

-Go with either a baby theme or an 'It's a boy/girl' theme. These are both the easiest things in the world to throw together. If you're feeling a little more adventurous, make it a teddy bear theme: bears are easy to find and decorate with, but very cute and appropriate for a shower.

If you like to go all out:

-Go for a glitzy glamour theme, or something cute but extravagant. For example, you could find out Mom's favorite fairy tale or nursery rhyme and organize your baby shower ideas around that. If you're really into it, you could even ask guests to come in costume.

If you like to defy expectations:

-Hold an 'all about mom' shower instead of a baby shower. This works best with experienced Moms who don't really need all of that baby stuff, and you should clear it with her first. Encourage guests to bring gifts for Mom, pitch in to get her a spa gift certificate, and have a grown up party -- the last she'll enjoy for a while.

If you like to try new things:

-Go online and look up baby shower theme ideas. You'll find tons of cool, unique, and cute ideas for not only themes but baby shower decorations, food, recipes, and games. The internet is your best friend for baby shower planning.

Remember, baby shower themes are a great idea to make your life easier!
