If you’re preparing to throw a baby shower for an expecting mom who is always chic and stylish, then our brand new Mod Baby Shower ensemble is for you! This theme features the trendy color combo of silver-grey and yellow, stripes and polka dots, and the silhouette of a mom-to-be. This is a great gender-neutral baby shower theme that celebrates mom in an elegant and upscale way.
Read on for baby shower ideas to match the Mod Baby Shower supplies:
Decor: Go elegant and understated with your Mod Baby Shower decor. Cover the tables with white linens, and at each place setting use one of our Mimosa Placemats and our Mod Baby Shower tableware. In the centers of alternating tables, fill hurricane vases with lemons. On the other tables, use floral arrangements made from white peonies and yellow billy balls. Make the cake table the focal point of the room by hanging yellow and grey tissue paper pompoms above it. Spread a yellow chevron tablerunner down the center of the table, and in the center of the table display a grey and white polka dot cake on a cake stand. Around the cake feature yellow and grey candies in clear glass jars.
Food: Keep the elegance going with the food by serving mini finger foods. Crustless tea sandwiches, pickle bites, caprese picks, mini quiche cups, deviled eggs, and mini cups with veggies and dip are just a couple ideas. You could also serve some of the mom’s pregnancy cravings! Besides the cake, some sweet ideas include cupcakes, cake pops, lemon bars, and macarons. To drink, serve lemonade in a clear glass dispenser. Don’t forget some of our black and white paper straws!
Activities: When throwing such an elegant and trendy shower, it’s important to keep the games and activities tasteful, too. No dirty diaper games here! Here are some ideas to help you keep it classy:
Filling out advice cards is a classic baby shower activity that is fun for the guests — and helpful for the expecting mom! Rather than blank cards, though, provide prompts on the cards, such as:
- ____ will save your life.
- Remember to ________.
- [Father's name] is going to _________.
- Never _________.
- Be sure to enjoy _________.
- Say goodbye to _______.
Another fun idea is to set up a onesie decorating activity. This is great because onesies are fun to make — and the expecting mom will need plenty of them! Get solid-colored onesies and have iron-on appliques and fabric paint to embellish with.
A game that your guests will enjoy is to ask each guest to bring her baby photo to the shower. Hang the photos on the wall with numbers and ask guests to guess who’s who on paper. Whoever gets the most correct wins!
