As we’re all starting to be able to gather together again, a baby shower can be such a fun way to come together and celebrate the upcoming arrival of a newborn. Whether it’s your own baby shower or you’re throwing one for a close friend or family member, we have some ideas for creating the cutest shower around.
- Pick a theme
There are so many cute theme possibilities! From nautical to woodland animals, there are so many themes out there. So look around and choose what speaks to you and that theme can help you decide all of the decorations and maybe even food.
- Send out invitations
Decide on a time and place. Typically a shower is about six weeks before a baby is due. Often times showers are held on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon in someone’s home. You may also want to hold it outside if the weather is nice. Once you’ve figured out location and time, determine who exactly you want on the guest list and send out invitations.

Speaking of food, showers usually have light, finger foods with both savory and sweet options. Classic examples include tea sandwiches, veggies with dip, and of course an array of cookies or brownies. This is where your theme can come in and you can get really creative. Don’t forget beverages as well.
Your gift should be for the new baby but you may also want to get a little something for mom as well. If you’re not sure what to give, we offer a variety of baby gifts here. And if you know the gender or name of the soon-to-be-born baby, personalization can make a gift even more thoughtful. We offer a variety of personalized items including clothing, decor, and accessories we’re sure any new mom will cherish.
We hope these ideas help you plan an adorable baby shower!
