If you or someone you know is expecting during the winter months, finding a perfect theme for a shower can be lots of fun. When planning a winter baby shower, consider themes that incorporate snowflakes, cozy décor and yummy winter-themed treats.
When it comes to planning the perfect baby shower celebration, there are three key areas that require advanced planning: the décor, the menu and the games.
Decorate like a pro:
- Create a winter wonderland with pint sized socks and mittens displayed from yarn or clothespins When the shower concludes, pack the tiny treasures away as gifts for the new baby.
- Nature calls: Bring the outside in by decorating with winter-themed floral arrangements like amaryllis or white roses with wintry berries.
- Let it snow: Use snowflake confetti or faux snowflakes to give your tables cool-weather pizazz.
Food is obviously a big part of any gathering, and a winter baby shower is no exception. How about a hearty soup served in crusty bread bowls? You could also treat guests to steaming mugs of hot chocolate with fresh biscotti for dipping. Cupcakes are always a crowd favorite, and can be decorated to fit any theme; top yours with mini marshmallow snowmen surrounded by coconut snow!
What would a shower be without party games and favors? For a baby shower during the winter months, play a game called “Don’t Say Baby” using a snowflake theme. Each guest wears a snowflake pin, and anyone who uses the word “baby” has to forfeit their pin to another guest. The one with the most snowflakes at the end of the shower wins a prize.
After planning the perfect day for the mother-to-be, don’t forget the party favors for the guests. Some ideas to consider include custom decorated coffee mugs filled with candy or packets of hot cocoa, miniature snow globes, holiday cookie kits or ornaments, fuzzy socks or slippers – when it comes to a winter-themed baby shower, the possibilities are endless!
A baby shower is a joyous event any time of the year, and great baby shower ideas abound for parties held in December, January and February. With proper planning, when the weather outside gets frightful the climate indoors will be delightful for your winter baby shower.
