Deck the halls–a baby is coming to town! With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, hosting a baby shower might seem a little overwhelming. But think of it this way: your home is decorated, faraway family members are in town to celebrate, and everyone is feeling festive. So why not take the opportunity to celebrate a little one’s arrival?
If you’re ready to add “baby shower” to your holiday to-do list, read on for five inspiring winter baby shower themes that can easily fit in with your already decorated home, saving you time and resources. We’ve got you covered with everything from invitations to food, decor, and party favors!
1. A Little Snowflake is On the Way
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! This snowflake theme works for baby girls, boys, or even babies whose gender is a surprise.
For baby boys (or for a gender-neutral celebration), keep the snowflake theme simple with white and green winter accents. A wooden snowflake garland is a decor piece you’ll enjoy year after year! Send guests home with hot chocolate jars or a simmer sachet to fill their home with the scents of the season!
For girls, add pink sparkles and lace to the tables. Glitter always adds a feminine feel! The combination of mercury glass, burlap, lace, and glitter in this tablescape is breathtaking! I also love the idea of suspending snowflakes from above, creating an immersive experience for guests. Snowflake cupcake toppers make dessert even sweeter!
2. Baby It’s Cold Outside
Crank up this classic holiday tune and invite guests to warm up and celebrate! This is another winter theme that can work for any gender.
A hot chocolate bar is definitely necessary at a “Baby It’s Cold Outside” baby shower—order custom coffee sleeves and cups for a personalized touch! Display toppings in white bowls with wooden spoons and ribbons. Place pinecones and a candle in a trifle dish filled with fake snow for an easy centerpiece.
3. Santa Baby
Oh, what fun it is to have a traditional Christmas-themed baby shower! When I saw this sweet, simple theme, I couldn’t resist including it in my top favorites!
All images from Fun365Add hanging candy canes to green garlands, and create gingerbread house terrariums with glass jars and sugar “snow.” Every guest will love a personalized place setting of a mini wreath they can take home, adorned with a Christmas bell. Miniature candy canes and a golden cake topper add festive touches to simple desserts.
4. Woodland Wonderland
Bring the outdoors “in” with this warm and cuddly theme featuring buffalo plaid and rustic touches!
If you have any plaid blankets, runners, or ribbon, now is the time to use them! A hot cocoa charcuterie board is sure to delight your guests. Use mason jars and wood stumps for a simple, rustic centerpiece, and send guests home with a bag of popcorn to enjoy!
