Use Pastel Christmas Decorations
Start searching now for pastel blue or pink Christmas decorations like mini trees, snowflakes and candies. This keeps the baby shower theme strong while giving the parents-to-be some cute decorations to use each year.
Add Some JOY to the Invitations
Embrace the Christmas theme by making an invitation featuring a new bundle of joy. These gorgeous invitations can be purchased on Etsy but feel free to get creative and make your own.
Decorate with Baby Ornaments
No one wants to be stuck with boxes of baby shower decor after the party, so make your decorations do double-duty by using ornaments. Look for “Baby’s First Christmas” and other fun ornaments that the mama-to-be will cherish long after the party’s over.
Set up a Hot Cocoa Bar
Finally! A fun baby shower drink that the guest of honor can actually enjoy. Skip the brunch mimosas and treat your guests to a hot cocoa bar featuring cozy hot chocolate, mini marshmallows, peppermint sticks, whipped cream and of course blue and pink sprinkles.
Decorate with Christmas Lights
Place delicate string lights around the tables of food and gifts for a sweet, festive touch. Opt for simple, white lights; or if you know the baby’s gender, look for blue or pink ones. Spelling out “baby” in lit letters is a chic touch, too.
Serve Pastel Treats
Look for foods in pastel Christmas colors like pink and mint green. These cream wafers are delicious and can double as table centerpieces in large mason jars.
Add a Fun Chalkboard Print
Set the tone for a chilly baby shower with a “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” sign. Order a beautiful print from Etsy or try your hand at calligraphy on a rustic chalkboard. Add the baby’s due date and any other fun details as well.
Play Christmas Bingo
Spare the mama-to-be the usual games of measuring her belly and melting candy bars in diapers. A simple game of Christmas bingo is a fun way to get all of the guests involved; even the most game-averse ones.
Make a Soup Station
Instead of classic shower recipes like fresh fruit and tea sandwiches, serve a hearty lunch of soup with fresh bread. Line up a variety of soups in slow cookers or Instant Pots and have guests serve themselves.
Place Gifts Under a Pastel Tree
Placing presents on a gift table is so last summer. Create a beautiful picture backdrop with a pastel pink or blue tree. It’s the perfect place to drop the gifts and will be a highlight for your guests. Here’s how to keep your tree fresh until the big day.
