Hooray, there’s a baby girl on the way—it’s time to celebrate!
Planning a baby shower for a girl is an opportunity to get creative with feminine party ideas, or go bold with an unexpected theme. There’s no such thing as too frilly, lacey or sweet when honoring a mom-to-be who’s expecting a little girl.
Of course, pink is the classic color palete for baby girl shower decorations. You can go all out with a monochromatic pink color scheme, choosing invitations, napkins, glassware and a shower cake in shades of blush. Want a color scheme that’s a little more unexpected? Some of our favorite color pairings include yellow and brown, purple and gray, and green and yellow.
A tea house, garden room, ballroom or restaurant are great venue options for a girl baby shower if you want to relieve yourself of the pre-party setup and post-party cleanup. For the food, a sit-down meal or passed appetizers are both popular options. And the pièce de résistance? A sweet dessert table. Lastly, don't forget about favors. (They're not necessary, but it's a nice gesture that goes a long way.) Handmade soaps, petit fours or scented candles are a few crowd-pleasing ideas for a girl’s baby shower.
Baby shower themes for girls can come from anywhere. If you need inspiration, ask the expectant couple if there's a theme for the baby’s nursery and take a cue from that. You can also get girl baby shower ideas from a strong female storybook character or the mom-to-be’s favorite lullaby.
No matter the theme and color scheme, this party is an opportunity to enjoy tasty food, delicious drinks and most of all, enjoy each other's company.
Baby girl is going to be a huge star! Since "Twinkle, Twinkle" is a beloved lullaby for many, you can’t go wrong with using it as a baby shower theme for a girl. The celestial-themed fete can be held in a chic loft that you can accent with stars and other sparkly and shiny baby girl decorations. Bracelets with star charms make stellar favors for guests to take home.
Alice in Wonderland is one of our favorite baby shower ideas for girls. Incorporate details and décor inspired by the story. For example, tea pots filled with red roses make chic and apropos Alice-themed baby shower decorations for a girl. Adorn cocktails with tags that say “drink me;” sweet treats can be similarly tagged “eat me.” Everyone will know this is a very important date!
For the mom-to-be who loves vivid colors and graphic designs, a Kate Spade baby shower theme is in order. Plan a brunch event in a garden space or city rooftop with an air of sophistication. The baby shower cake and decorations for a girl should include bold black-and-white stripes and bright, oversize flowers.
Let honeybees be your muse to create this sweet girl baby shower. Plan an outdoor party, where guests can enjoy the great outdoors while honoring the “mom-to-bee.” Serve fresh berries alongside a tasty spread of charcuterie, hummus and cheese. Top a girl baby shower cake with fresh wildflowers for a natural look. As a thanks for “bee-ing” there, gift guests a honeycomb-shaped soap.
