Baby Shower Theme Ideas
1. Little Treasure
A cute, sweet theme! Little Treasure Baby Shower. Babies are special treasures and this theme celebrates that!
Use a cute Little Treasure Sign like this one from Lil Humming Girl to decorate your dessert table or to welcome the guests to the shower.
Fill treasure chests like these from Red Heart Creations with baby items and use the chests as centerpieces. Throw in some chocolate coins too.
The mom-to-be will be delighted to receive all the fun items in the treasure boxes.
Create a Little Treasures Banner and hang it in front of the gift table.
Reading books to your kids is always a special time. You could use books like these as decorations:
2. Snuggles and Hugs
Baby snuggles. Loved those days snuggling with a baby. And I’m sure that is one of the things moms to be look forward to. This baby shower can have cute blankies, pillows, and stuffed animals all over the place!
This cute baby doll comes with a sleep sack. You can choose from 4 different styles. I love the little tags on the side. For some reason babies are fascinated with labels.
Mommy’s little Snuggle bug from Prints of Pop. This is a digital download. A cute decoration and a gift. Create a onesies banner to hang up on the wall.
And for the Harry Potter fans: Snuggle This Muggle onesies from Experiment 636. Which gives you another baby shower theme: Harry Potter Baby Shower!
Snuggle Bug Cupcakes
Beautiful Daisy and Ladybug cupcake toppers from Parkers Flour Patch will make the cupcake decorating a breeze! Serve also some Hershey’s Hugs for the chocolate lovers.

Tissue paper fans are such an easy way to decorate a wall behind the dessert or gift table. And these black and yellow ones are made for a bee baby shower!
Honey Dippers as Party Favors
Party favors… love them… don’t love them… It can be hard to come up with something to go with the theme that would also be something useful.
These mini honey dippers with smiling faces would make cute party favors for Bumble Bee Baby Shower!
Attach to a tiny honey jar or just tie a pretty ribbon around it and you are all set!
5. Ciao Bambino
Good food, music, laughter… Italy! A fun-filled baby shower you can center around Italian Dinner. So many food options to choose from!

And one of the activities at the baby shower could be “make your own pizza”!
Bambino can refer to either one if you do not know which one is on the way. This cute Bambino banner from Jess Made This has over 40 color options! You are sure to find one that goes with your theme!

This Pumpkin Diaper Cake from Frugal Fanatic is not spring-y, but you could make it fit for any season with painted pumpkins, snowflakes or flowers.
