Baby Shark Baby Shower Party Ideas

I just love this stunning and colorful Baby Shark Baby Shower Party by Elysia at Magnolia Party Planner.

Since the recent baby Shark song took over social media, this theme has become increasingly popular as a Baby Shark Baby Shower Party, or Baby Shark Birthday Party. It’s a fun theme for a little boys birthday or Baby Shower.

The tones of bright blue used are really striking and help set the scene for this Baby Shark Party!

This party is a Birthday but would work equally well for a Baby Shark Baby Shower.

In addition, I love how the blues are teamed with silver in the balloons with pops of orange on the cakes and yellow in the paper garlands. Meanwhile, the fishing netting on the styling gives a really nautical feel and the use of simple wooden stools and tables gives height and lets the decorations take center stage!

The Details…

Party type: Birthday Party

Color Scheme: Bright blue, silver and white with tiny pops of orange, yellow and red.

Favorite décor ideas:

  • Nautical netting used in lieu of table coverings on the stools and tables.
  • The very full balloon wall with a variety of sized balloons and some silver for sparkle.
  • The use of nautical props like the life ring and pool floaties.
  • Super cute fondant sharks on top of the cake are just adorable.
  • Wooden boxes and crates to house the favors.
  • Also, the addition of yellow in the styling makes the colors pop.

  • First off, keep the color scheme bright, fun and mainly blue with pops of an accent like yellow or orange.
  • Next, create a nautical feel with netting instead of table covers.
  • Also, carry the color scheme through from the food into the décor.
  • Finally, use a balloon wall in shades of blue and silver to extend the theme and give height.
