3 pieces of advice for selecting the perfect baby shower theme

1. Think about the expectant mom’s personality – This is, by far, the most important tip. You want to make sure the mom-to-be is comfortable at the shower, so select a party style that’s good for her lifestyle. Is she a hip and trendy mom who loves to hang out with friends and family? Then a more modern theme such as “Little Diva” or “Girlfriend’s Lunch” would be great for her. She may also like a coed baby shower.

For the more conservative or laid-back mom, she may appreciate a theme with subtle colors and decorations. Perhaps the “It’s a boy/girl” theme. And if your guest of honor likes to be fancy and the center of attention, definitely go with the “Princess/Prince Charming” theme.

2. Don’t think about your budget too much – You can easily plan the perfect baby shower using any theme and any size budget. Even if you want some fancy baby shower decorations or an exquisite buffet for your guests, you don’t have to empty your wallet to get what you want. Remember to shop around for the best prices, and check out your local dollar store. You’ll be surprised at how much stuff they carry!

3. Choose the appropriate theme for a boy or girl – This should go without saying. Make sure your theme matches the baby’s gender. You shouldn’t use a theme such as “Little Diva” for a boy, or “sailboats” for a girl. If you don’t know the sex of the baby, choose a unisex theme, such as “rubber ducky”.
