A brand new baby girl is on the way, which means that the party planning can get started! Whether you’re the mama-to-be or a loved one lucky enough to be throwing the shower, you’ll agree that a love-filled event with family, friends, games, food, and gifts is the best way to celebrate new life and herald the new arrival. Of course, choosing a baby girl shower theme is half the fun! There are so many ideas to choose from, but the best thing is to choose the one that really speaks to you. And remember, any of these theme ideas can work for a baby boy too!
Here are 5 unique choices for a baby girl shower theme to get you inspired.
Ballerina Baby Girl Shower Theme. If you want to embrace a classic all-pink palette for your little girl’s baby shower, then a ballet theme is on point! This super girly shower theme is just tutu cute and is also a lot of fun to put together for your tiny dancer. Place a tulle frill around the table and hang tulle pompoms or tulle-wrapped balloons from the ceiling. Serve cookies iced to look like ballet slippers, cupcakes topped with bows, and pink sodas. And, of course, play classical ballet music as background music. You could even hire a real ballerina for a live performance, to really wow the guests!
Garden Party Baby Girl Shower Theme. Garden parties are trending for weddings, so why not for baby showers too? It’s an elegantly feminine theme to welcome your new arrival. Set the tone with floral or botanical invitations and ask guests to wear floral prints. A greenhouse or botanical garden is the perfect venue, but it can be just as lovely in your own backyard, especially on a summer day. Decorate with trellises, potted plants, and of course, lots and lots of flowers! You can send guests home with packets of seeds as a favor.
French Market Baby Girl Shower Theme. Everyone knows how much I love flea markets (especially in Paris!) so this might be my ultimate shower theme! If the mother-to-be is besotted with all things French, she’ll love it too! The décor should be an eclectic, sophisticated mix of modern and vintage pieces, with pretty chalkboard signage and maybe a vintage bicycle. Serve mini baguettes wrapped in paper and twine, croissants and pain au chocolat, macarons and madeleines. Instead of a cake, you could have a cheese wheel stack or a croquembouche. Set up a mini flower stall where guests can make their own bouquets to take home. They’ll love it!
Flamingo Baby Girl Shower Theme. Let’s get tropical! Flamingos make such a cute motif for a baby shower, especially combined with a hot pink and palm green palette. Use lots of bright florals and tropical greenery to create a paradise vibe, with tropical mocktails and fruity treats on the menu.
Safari/Zoo Baby Girl Shower Theme. One thing I like to do is to take a classic theme like this one and completely reimagine it. For one baby girl shower, we had giant topiaries in the shapes of elephants and a giraffe, with little pink animals at every place setting. The perfect favor for a safari-themed shower? Animal crackers, of course!
