Springtime is a wonderful season to host a baby shower. The season indicates that the trees and flowers are ready to bloom around us, and that is just what a baby shower celebrates: new life. Here are five fun spring themes for your baby shower to celebrate the end of winter woes and welcome your new family member.
Peter Rabbit Theme
The Tale of Peter Rabbit has been a classic book found in many children’s libraries. In early 2018, Sony decided it was ready to take on the big screen and become a real-life animated movie, the Peter Rabbit Movie. Just in time for Spring, this is a perfect theme to welcome the new baby carrot in your garden. The colour scheme is simple: cream and white colours mixed with splashes of soft pastel hues, like the blue of Peter’s jacket and the green for his garden to complete the look. Here are great decor options reminiscent of Peter Rabbit.
For anyone that is a fan of the popular HGTV show, Fixer Upper, you may be familiar with the do-it-all mother and designer, Joanna Gaines. Not only does she run her interior design business alongside her husband, but they are also opening a new restaurant called Magnolia Table. Nothing can stop her, including welcoming a new baby to make her home a house of seven! It is only natural we’re putting one of her most renowned interior design concepts onto our list: French country rustic. The food concepts include crepes, cheese platters and macarons while the color scheme is whitewashed and natural tones (i.e. canvas, burlap, manila-colored).
Once the Spring thaw comes, we’ll be ready to fire up the grill to welcome Summer. If enjoying a co-ed concept that foregoes cupcakes and cake pops sounds appealing, consider having a baby-que instead. The baby shower can be similar to enjoying a day out and firing up the grill in the backyard. Invitations can be designed as a BBQ invitation (red and white striped or checkered invitations are an ideal color scheme). Mason jars of iced tea, heartier foods like barbeque platters and pies sound mighty fine to fill your tummy of two.
Cherry blossoms are a beautiful sight across the globe, indicating that Spring is here. In Hokkaido, Japan, Vancouver, BC, and Washington DC, USA, one of the iconic sightseeing experiences is to view the cherry blossoms bloom. Even Starbucks Japan released a new drink, the Sakura Blossom to welcome the warmer weather. In the same welcoming fashion, Kim Kardashian celebrates her pregnancy with Chicago West in Cherry Blossom-fashion. You can too, by decorating your baby shower with the color scheme of cheery pink, red and white. For an adoring backdrop to match, artificial cherry blossom branches from Michael’s bring the outdoors in.
Warm memories often come with warmer weather, such as visiting the circus or carnival. Exciting festivities bring smiles to our faces, like carnival games, cotton candy and funnel cake. Such childhood pastimes create the perfect setting for celebrating a bun in the oven. The colour scheme is bold basic colours, like red, white and yellow. Fun decor includes pinstriped flag banners, circus admission tickets for invitations and circus animal cake toppers. Here are some decor ideas that are a fit for your carnival dream baby shower.
