Is there a baby shower on the horizon? Celebrating the mum-to-be is a huge part of welcoming her child into the world. It’s a day for presents, pampering and bonding before the big day. 

Need help planning the perfect baby shower? Check out these six baby shower ideas to inspire your party planning.

1. Throw A Tea Party

Want to keep proceedings relaxed and classy? Gather everyone for a delightful tea party with baby themed table decorations, delicious light bites and games.

Floral gardens are ideal for hosting tea parties, but you can also use an intimate dining room or even hire out a venue if you want to splurge. We recommend serving a wide variety of teas and mixing up the finger sandwiches with plenty of sweet and savoury treats. 

2. Break Out The Crafts

Crafting is hands down one of our favourite baby shower ideas. Let everyone tap into their creative sides with special arts and crafts activities. Pair them with some refreshing drinks and finger food for an afternoon of fun and laughs.

There are a range of arts and crafts you can provide for your baby shower guests. An alphabet book or letter wall is an educational and heart-warming gift. You can also create a mobile for the baby’s crib, adorable headbands for the little prince or princess or decorate some baby hangers with colourful characters.

3. Have A Brunch Shower

Are you looking for a baby shower idea that’s more casual? Consider throwing a brunch shower. It’s easy to host at someone’s house and doesn’t take much planning or cleaning up afterwards.

The biggest decision you’ll need to make for a brunch baby shower is the food. Fortunately, there are numerous delicious morning meal ideas. Mixed berry scones, various quiches, banana bread scones, baked egg galettes, coconut cream pie smoothies and classic French toast should appeal to both sweet and savoury lovers.

4. Host A Picnic

Need to throw a baby shower but don’t have a venue? How about this great baby shower idea for budget-savvy party planners?

Host a baby shower picnic in your local park. All you need to bring are picnic blankets and baskets filled with yummy food and drinks. The open space also makes it easy to play a variety of games and set up a range of decorations (modest or outlandish) to give the mum-to-be a day to remember. Picnics are also a great idea if a lot of your guests already have children who’ll want to run around and play.

5. Spa Shower For Baby

There’s no denying that motherhood isn’t the most relaxing or peaceful of times. That’s why this baby shower idea is all the more important. Mum won’t have much time to spoil herself after the baby is born, so now’s the time to pamper her (and all her friends) with an indulgent spa day and a prenatal treatment. 

Book in for a long session comprising healthy snacks, rejuvenating body and face treatments and luxe bath products. A day spa’s tranquil atmosphere is ideal for taking a deep breath and completely relaxing before the big day.

6. Onesie Decorating Station

Few items of clothing are more useful or comfortable for babies than a onesie. Parents simply can’t get enough of them. Set up a onesie decorating station so your guests can design their own personalised onesies for the newborn. 

Select a handful of stencils for your guests to choose from, open a couple of bottles of champagne (not for the mum-to-be of course!) and let your creativity run wild. By the end of the baby shower everyone will have created a truly unique gift to be treasured by mum and bub alike.
