Baby shower themes and décor ideas
Let’s face it, baby showers are a dime a dozen, so hosting one that astounds the expecting parents and their loved ones is no easy task. Read on for some fresh ideas for baby showers.
To help you style a baby shower that will blow your guests away, SheKnows collected the expertise of the nation's top event planners and party bloggers. Here are some of the clever themes and fabulous décor ideas they suggested.
"Everyone who's been pregnant knows that around the second trimester the mom-to-be goes through a 'nesting' period in preparation for the new baby. A 'nesting' or "little birdies' baby shower is the perfect theme to play on that idea and offers some wonderful decorating opportunities," says Chris Nease, an event stylist and founding editor of Celebrations at Home.
To decorate, Nease suggests using manzanita branches, decorative birds, nests from the craft store and feathers to transform the space into a nature-inspired party. For centerpieces, she recommends grouping bird cages or bird houses, branches, flowers and other small items.
