Baby showers are a time-honored tradition for expectant mothers, their friends, and their families. They offer a chance for the mother-to-be to celebrate her upcoming arrival with loved ones and to receive gifts for her new little one.
While baby showers can be fun and festive, they don’t have to be over-the-top or tacky. There are many cute and classy baby shower themes that you can use to create a memorable event that the mother-to-be will remember for years to come!
Here are some of our favorite cute and classy baby shower themes:
This is an excellent option for baby showers that will be held on a warm spring afternoon. Serve up a variety of teas, along with some light snacks like scones, finger sandwiches, and petit fours. You can decorate with pretty floral arrangements and vintage tea cups (which you can most likely find at a local thrift store!). If games are on the agenda, ensure they are appropriate for a tea party!
Similar to a tea party baby shower theme, this is a perfect option for baby showers that will be held outdoors. Decorate with lots of fresh flowers, potted plants, and pretty garden decorations. Serve light refreshments like lemonade, cookies, and fruit. Games appropriate for a garden party include a flower pot relay race and a baby food tasting game.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
For a chic and elegant baby shower, go with a Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme. Decorate in black, white, and Tiffany’s blue, and serve breakfast favorites like mini quiches, bagels with cream cheese, and mini muffins. Use this baby shower theme as an excuse to get the gals together and dress up one last time before the baby arrives! If you want to forgo games to gossip and chat, that’s perfectly fine for this theme.
Woodland Fairy Tale
This is a cute and whimsical option for baby showers. Decorate with lots of flowers, greenery, and fairy tale characters. You can even hang paper lanterns from the ceilings to create a magical atmosphere. Serve light refreshments like tea, sandwiches, and cookies. Games that would be appropriate for a woodland fairy tale baby shower include a scavenger hunt and a diaper raffle. You can even play Pin the Tail on the Unicorn!
For a genuinely regal baby shower, go with a royal celebration theme. Decorate with lots of gold, silver, and jewels. Serve up a variety of finger foods and desserts fit for a king or queen. You can even hire a harpist or string quartet to play some classical music in the background. Games that are fit for a royal celebration include things like baby name guessing, nursery rhyme trivia, and guessing how many diapers are in the jar.
Classic Blue and White
This is a timeless and chic option for baby showers. Decorate with a blue and white color scheme, floral arrangements, and simple yet elegant table settings. Cakes and cupcakes are usually a big hit at baby showers, so include some in your dessert spread. Games popular at blue and white baby showers include guessing the baby food flavor, diaper derby, and Nursery Rhyme Quiz.
This baby shower theme is easy because you can find decorations and serving ware in almost any color scheme.
This is a pretty and romantic option for baby showers. Decorate with vintage floral prints, lace, and ribbons. Cakes and cookies with delicate icing designs would be perfect for this theme. You can even play vintage-themed baby shower games like pass the parcel and musical chairs.
This is a fun and unique option for baby showers. Decorate with jungle animals, greenery, and safari-themed decorations. Your mom-to-be and all of the guests can wear animal print clothes to get into the spirit of the theme. BBQ works great for this theme, or you can do a potluck-style meal where everyone brings their favorite safari-themed dish. Games that would be appropriate for a safari chic baby shower include an animal guessing game and a Safari scavenger hunt.
Glamorous Gold and Silver
For a truly glamorous baby shower, go with a gold and silver theme. Decorate with sparkly metallic accents. Serve up gold or silver-themed baby shower foods and drinks such as chocolate-covered strawberries with gold dust or a silver punch bowl filled with sparkling cider.
You can even play some fun and glam baby shower games like a Hollywood movie trivia game or a red carpet fashion show. Everyone can dress up in their best clothes and get into the spirit of the theme, including any kids attending the baby shower! This baby shower theme is perfect for mommies-to-be who want a chic and stylish event.
Modern Mint and Peach
This is a fresh and modern option for baby showers. Decorate with mint green and peach accents. This baby shower theme is excellent for soups, salads, or a light brunch-style meal. Games that would be appropriate for a modern mint and peach baby shower include a onesie decorating contest or a guessing game where people have to guess how many items are in the diaper bag.
Sweet and Simple Pink and Yellow
This is a cute and cheerful option for baby showers. Decorate with pink and yellow flowers, balloons, and streamers. You can even find some adorable baby shower cakes and cupcakes in these colors (including cheaper options at the grocery store). Games that work well with a pink and yellow theme include baby bingo, guessing when the mom-to-be will go into labor, and a diaper raffle.
This is an excellent option for baby showers that will be held outdoors, especially in rural areas or parks. Decorate with burlap, Mason jars, and rustic wood accents. Serve some tasty country-style foods like BBQ chicken sliders, corn on the cob, and watermelon slices. Games that would be appropriate for a rustic charm baby shower include a horseshoe toss or water balloon relay race.
This is a cute and nostalgic option for baby showers. Decorate with lots of nautical-themed accents like anchors, life preservers, and rope. You can even find some adorable nautical baby shower cakes and cupcakes. Games are easy as they can include any printed baby shower games that have a nautical theme!
