Baby Shower Chic

How do you begin planning a baby shower? Get started by browsing your favorite magazine or Pinterest board for theme ideas. The secret to creating an enchanting theme is attention to little details, favors, signs etc. Monique Smaby owner and designer for local Etsy shop Sweet Thymes put together three spring themes for mom's to be to get inspired. "I love mixing and matching different textures and colors to create something unique, now that spring is here take your shower outdoors." Get creative, think out of the box and make your baby shower one to remember.

Vintage Baby Love: Those of you with a vintage flair will love books and lace. Bring the vintage theme outside by hosting a baby shower tea party. At your tea station hang a crisp lace banner and vintage book page baby banner. Bring in family history by hanging family baby pictures on some twine with white heart clothes pins. Pink roses or peonies will send this shower over the top!

Giddyup Little Cowboy: For your little cowboy or girl bring your guests to the wild west. Perfect for outdoors or a rustic barn setting. Mix and match your baby shower with rustic burlap banners and soft felt banners. Create a photo backdrop with a cowboy hat banner, bring props to inspire fun candids of guests. It wouldn't be a western theme with out a few mason jars, place glass mason jars at the drinks station for guests to fill up with lemonade and flavored water. Fill boot themed favor bags with cookies to send your guests off with a sweet treat. 

Life is a Circus: Invite your guests to experience the circus with a fun gender neutral theme, if you are keeping it a surprise. Set a backdrop for gift opening with a glitter circus banner, you can move it to the baby nursery after the shower. Play baby shower games by clipping on mini elephant clothes pins and removing them every time someone says the word baby, at the end of the party the guest with the most clothes pins receives a prize. Let friends take the circus home by stopping by the candy bar to fill up circus themed favor bags of candy.
