Any great hostess should know that the theme will set the entire tone of the baby shower and as such should be carefully chosen. With endless possibilities, it may be best to narrow it down based on whether the baby will be a boy or a girl and whether or not the shower will be women-only or for couples. The type of shower you want to throw will help determine the best theme.

If the baby shower date happens to fall around a holiday, run with it! Creating a baby shower around a festive event is not something people will expect, so it makes a wonderful surprise. A shower with a Valentine`s Day theme may have heart-shaped cookies, baby bottles filled with candy hearts for party favors and baby cherub decorations. A Mother`s Day-themed shower can include pastel-colored decorations and each guest can write out personal messages on Mother`s Day cards for the soon-to-be parents to keep.

Baby animals have become hot decorative items for nurseries in recent years, so throw a baby animal shower! Gather all your stuffed animals to use as centerpieces or decorations and play games involving baby animal matching. Animal crackers make fun party favors and serving pigs in a blanket is a great idea for food.

Throw a Mad Hatter`s tea party! Ask guests on the invitation to show up wearing their goofiest hats. You can even set aside a prize and have guests vote for who has the craziest hat. Make it a game of keeping the hat on during the duration of the party. Anyone who takes it off has to make a gift donation.

Most baby showers are quite cutesy, so be a little different if the mom-to-be is expecting a boy. Aside from decorating with the color blue, bring in all sorts of toy planes, cars, trucks, rockets, boats and trackers.

One fun theme for twins is Noah`s Ark. Create centerpieces of two identical stuffed animals and arrange to have each table feature a different pair of animals. Send out animal-themed invitations and ask guests to consider bringing two of the same gifts. Have a costume party and it doesn`t have to be around Halloween. You can create a specific theme around which guests need to come dressed, such as a baby item, a cartoon character, or nursery rhyme characters.

Children`s books are another great theme for the shower. Aside from having guests bring gifts, ask them to bring at least one children`s book each. Decorate with Dr. Seuss characters and any other favorite literary characters.

Although it may sound like something straight out of a 50`s prom, an under the sea theme can be fun to plan! Use blue and green tissue paper and seashells and cut-out fish for decoration. You can even create fish bowls for table centerpieces. Fill a treasure chest with all sorts of baby items and serve `goldfish` as one of the snack options.

No matter the theme, make sure each guest is aware of where the parents-to-be are registered. This makes buying gifts much easier and the parents are more likely to get those bigger gifts like cribs, changing tables and childrens beds.

Hi friends,

At a baby shower, the expectant mother is showered with gifts. But this kind of party isn't just for the mom-to-be. It gives her friends and family members the opportunity to get together and have some fun. Usually, the host has a theme for the shower, such as jungle animals or teddy bears. Thanks a lot......

Unique baby shower theme ideas can adds a special element to the party. Themes may reflect the traditional colors signaling the gender of the baby, bring in elements of the nursery, show the many sides of a new mother or simply be something fun or whimsical. Thanks for sharing this useful post.
