Who picks the theme for a Baby Shower?

Who picks the Baby Shower theme can depend on who is hosting the shower. Sometimes, the host will select a theme that they think the parents-to-be or the Mom-to-be will like the most. This could be a favorite color theme, a favorite animal, character or favorite Baby Shower theme in general. Other times, the host may ask the Mama-to-be to choose a theme, and then plan the Baby Shower accordingly.

What is the most popular theme for a Baby Shower?

Not surprisingly, the most popular themes for a Baby Shower are the classics. Twinkle Twinkle Little Star is one of the all time favorite nursery rhyme Baby Shower themes. Moon and Stars is another popular variation of that theme. 

A traditional pink Baby Shower for girls and blue Baby Shower theme for boys is another popular theme that there are so many pretty variations of. 

More recently, Oh Baby has become a popular theme, with a Baby Shower tea party following closely behind.

How do you create a theme for your Baby Shower?

The key to creating an effective theme for your Baby Shower is to allow the theme to shine through all the areas of your Shower. For example, a backdrop can be used behind your dessert table to really identify your theme. Then your theme colors can be continued into your dessert table using table cloths and table decorations, decor and flowers. Colored balloons can carry the theme into the corners of your room and your table centerpiece will also feature your theme.
