Top Winter Baby Shower Themes


1. Oh Deer! Baby Shower Theme

This theme is perfect for a little buck or a little doe! It’s a rustic theme with pops of gold and sprigs of green. Add a custom antler cake topper to the cake.


2. Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Theme

Have twinkling star lights strung up over the gift table, and gold and silver stars and moons interspersed throughout your venue. I have always loved the idea of using something from the baby shower as a special piece of decor in the baby’s nursery and a wooden sign with the lyrics to this lullaby theme is the perfect way to remember this baby shower!


3. Gingerbread Baby Shower Theme

‘Tis the season for the sweet and spicy smell of gingerbread to fill your home! Set up gingerbread men or houses for guests to decorate as a fun activity and a delicious party favor!


4. Floral High Tea Baby Shower

Cozy up to an elegant cup of tea to honor the Mommy-to-be. Plenty of candles add a warm glow, and use some dried flowers in the floral arrangements to capture the preserved beauty and charm of this beautiful season.


5. A Little Snowflake is on the Way!

Spray paint long branches silver and adorn with assorted sized snowflakes for sparkly centerpiece displays. And you can find the snowflake backdrop (pictured above) on Amazon. The light pink goes well with the silver and white snowflake decor, but a soft blue would make a lovely alternative.


6. White Winter Baby Shower Theme

Pottery Barn Kids makes it easy to pull off your own gorgeous “White Winter” baby shower with lots of party planning tips and free printables.


7. Bundle Up! Baby Shower Theme

We adore the soft colors and cute décor in this “Bundle Up” baby shower theme from Hostess with the Mostess. After all, you are celebrating a new bundle of joy, right?


8. Baby, It’s Cold Outside Baby Shower Theme

Your guests will instantly warm up to this sweet baby shower theme that pays homage to the Christmas classic. Decorate with blue and white snowflakes and be sure to serve a lot of hot cocoa.


9. Winter Woodland Baby Shower Theme

Skip the safari animals and go for an elegant “Winter Woodland” theme. Featured on Cutest Baby Shower Ideas, this dessert table was decorated using twinkly lights and pine tree branches as well as woodland friends such as deer, and birds.


10. Little Penguin Baby Shower Theme

This is another fun twist on the animal theme. If woodland animals aren’t your thing, go for some bright, playful penguins as in this party styled by Celebration Lane . You could even include other arctic animals such as seals and polar bears!


11. Sparkling Baby Shower Theme

New Year’s Eve may be over, but why not incorporate a little glitz and glam into mom’s special day? This gorgeous baby shower, featured on Hostess with the Mostess, incorporated gold and silver to give the event an extra sparkle!


12. Lumber Jack Baby Shower Theme

Channel the flannel for the outdoorsy mom-to-be in your life. Buffalo plaid, trail mix bars and lots of natural elements make up the beautiful look for this lumberjack winter shower!
