Baby shower themes

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Mom-to-be will be left over the moon and starry-eyed with this thematic interpretation of the classic lullaby. Hang some twinkle lights, serve some ice cream star bars and bask in the peaceful quiet of the cosmos before baby comes!

Ready to pop

Get the party popping with this fun and easy theme! Popcorn, pop and lots of balloons are all you need to make the festivities come to life. Have mom-to-be toast the arrival of her little kernel with some (non-alcoholic) bubbly, as there’s no greater “pop” than that of a little (faux) champagne!

Flora and fauna

Popular with celebs like Lauren Conrad, this elegent and minimalist theme feels modern while still feeling classic. Surrounding yourself with plants and flowers will make you feel like Mother Nature herself as you wait for your own little one to grow.

Soft, sweet and subtle, these pastels will make you feel like you’re living in a candy-coloured dream. We love how contemporary this aesthetic feels, while also maintaining the vibe of a traditional shower.

Perfect for a spring baby, this yellow-and-grey colour scheme is so fresh and pretty. To colour-coordinate, you need to serve this lemon meringue pie for dessert.

Instead of throwing the mom-to-be yet another full baby shower for her second or third child, host a baby "sprinkle"! A smaller group, a shorter registry and a whole lot of sprinkles on everything make this low-key event still feel like a major celebration.

You are my sunshine

Nostalgic, sweet and simple—this theme is sure to make anyone happy, whether or not skies are grey! Break out the lemonade, lemon bars and gerber daisies for a bright and sunny celebration.

Vintage books

It’s no secret that we’re huge book fans at Today’s Parent (you may have seen our list of the 100 best Canadian kids’ books), and this vintage literature party is giving us the feels. The host of this shower clearly went all out, even using old-school library checkout cards as the invite. Perfect.
