Needless to say, getting prepared for a baby is a lot of work. Pregnancy is a beautiful gift, but it also entails nine months of baby-carrying pains, along with countless books and articles (and sometimes unsolicited advice, sorry mom-in-laws). However, there remains a fun fixture of pregnancy that is as entertaining as it is helpful: The baby shower.
Acclimate yourself to all things baby by throwing a shower. This celebratory party is a great opportunity to spend time with friends and family before the business of being a new parent kicks in. Most importantly, a shower will help you gather everything you need, from a towering diaper cake to the future VIB (very important blankie).
We’ve rounded up our favorite creative baby shower themes, perfect for Pinterest boards, Instagram feeds and baby scrapbooks. Each theme breaks down the fun by providing inspiration for venues, food, drink, entertainment and plenty of creative details. Plus, each theme is gender-neutral or easily tweakable.
