7 Sweet Summer Baby Shower Themes (plus even more creative ideas)

Summer is the perfect time to have a bright and sunshine-y party and what better way to do that than celebrating a sweet new baby! The weather is perfect for outdoor gatherings and so many foods are in season which means many delicious recipes to try.

You can also get creative with fun games, pretty tablescapes and simple party favors to make your summer baby shower the “hottest” event all season!

Here are some of our favorite ideas for a beautiful summer baby shower:

1. Tropical Theme Baby Shower

Temperatures are rising, flowers are blooming, and everything is green and colorful. It’s the perfect backdrop for a tropical-themed shower! If your summer weather is mild, host outdoors and let the scenery serve as your decor. If your guests would be more comfortable inside and in the A/C, bring the outdoors in with plenty of flowers in vases and some potted plants. And don’t forget to incorporate some of those delicious, in-season fruits into your menu!

While mom-to-be is opening gifts, play a round of bingo to keep guests interested and engaged. Whoever gets bingo wins one of the tropical flower arrangements or a small potted plant to take home!
