Decor: For an Umbrellaphants baby shower, we love the idea of mixing and matching disposable party supplies with your nice linens and dishes. Begin by covering tables with white linen tablecloths and setting each place with a charger topped with an Umbrellaphants plate. Use Umbrellaphants napkins with your silverware, and for cups fill crystal goblets with water and use 9 oz Umbrellaphants paper cups for lemonade and iced tea. In the centers of half of the tables, set our mini honeycomb Umbrellaphants centerpieces, while on the other tables use hydrangea floral arrangements for centerpieces. Fill up Umbrellaphants balloons with helium and tie balloon bouquets around the room.
Food: To save money, consider throwing the baby shower mid-afternoon so you can serve light snacks and finger foods, like veggies and dip, caprese skewers, fruit salad, and cheese and crackers. For something more substantial, consider croissants with chicken salad and cold cuts. And a cake is a must! Take a plate from your Umbrellaphants party supplies to your local bakery and ask them to decorate a cake to match. Also consider petit fours, chocolate chip cookies, and whoopie pies for desserts.
Activities: After your guests arrive and eat, gather the group for an activity and a couple games! For the activity, a fun idea that the expecting mom will appreciate is letting each guest decorate a onesie for the baby! Have iron-on decals and embellishments so everyone can design their own onesie, and at the end of the shower the mom-to-be will have a bounty of oensies for the baby. Next up is game time! For an umbrellaphants shower, we like to keep the animal theme going with the Baby Animal Name Game. For this, create a list of animals and their respective baby names. For example, a baby elephant is a calf and a baby horse is a foal. Mix up the names and see who can match them up fastest. Lastly, while the mom-to-be is opening gifts, keep guests engaged with a game of Baby Shower Bingo. For this, give each player a blank bingo board, a pencil,and board markers. Before she begins opening gifts, have the guests fill in each square on the board with items they think she’ll receive. As she opens gifts, have guests mark their correct guesses and call out “bingo” when they get a complete row!
You can’t go wrong with an adorable Umbrellaphants baby shower — the expecting mom and all her guests will love it!
