From the invitations to the decorations and everything in between – the mum-to-be will love every aspect of this beautiful metallic and pastel baby shower!
Read on to find out how to put together this beautiful baby shower with our Hello World party supplies and some special finishing touches!
Step 1: Invitations
First things first, let everyone know they’re invited to the baby shower of the year with these beautiful Hello World invitations.
If you’re wondering when to send your invitations, remember that baby showers usually take place around 6-8 months into the pregnancy. You don’t want to jinx the pregnancy by throwing the shower too early but you shouldn’t leave it too late in case the baby is born early! A month or so before the due date is about right, so send out your invitations a couple of weeks before that.
Step 2: Planning your baby shower
Once your invitations have been sent, it’s time to start planning the baby shower itself! From decorations and party food to fun activities to keep your guests entertained, the more you can plan in advance will make everything much easier on the day!
Baby shower decorations
For this shower we stuck to a colour scheme of pastel green, white and rose gold. And as far as baby shower decorations go, there’s no need to go over the top. Simple and cute can look just as lovely! Take these raindrop hanging decorations – they’ll look stunning hung from the ceiling behind your buffet table. Such a simple way to transform the room for your baby shower! Don’t metallics and pastels look stunning together?!
Pom poms in general never go amiss! These pastel green and white pom poms will look stunning wherever you hang them.
Balloons are another easy way to decorate – and as long as you stick to the colour scheme, they can look very stylish and sophisticated. We love these plain white balloons with a ‘hello world’ motif.
As you can see, it really doesn’t take much to decorate your baby shower venue beautifully. Letter bunting is enjoying its time in the spotlight at the moment and makes a lovely focal point for your decorations. We particularly love this rose gold ‘hello world’ bunting – it’s so simple yet so cute!
Party food ideas
Once you’ve picked out some cute decorations, it’s time to think about party food and how to serve it!
Party plates like this are pretty and practical – after all, no-one wants to be washing up dozens of plates and cups after the baby shower. And they just happen to match your pastel and rose gold baby shower decorations perfectly.
As for drinks, most baby showers tend to be non-alcoholic but this rule isn’t set in stone. Some mums-to-be may not mind their guests drinking a little Buck’s Fizz in honour of the occasion!
But whatever you decide to serve, these rose gold party cups will make your drinks look extra-specially stylish!
These green and white paper straws (complete with cloud straw toppers that match your decorations) will look lovely too!
When you’re trying to decide what food to serve, you don’t have to be a culinary master to match your party food to your decorations. First of all, remember that not everything has to match. And secondly, have a go at making some simple treats like cupcakes topped with light green icing and these ‘hello world’ cake toppers. They’ll look super cute even though they’re surprisingly simple!
In general, sweet treats are the easiest party foods to keep on theme (think cupcakes, cake pops, iced biscuits, a cake, etc).
Why settle for ordinary napkins when you could have these ‘hello world’ napkins will look lovely laid out next to your party food? So cute!
Finally, scatter the tables with this gorgeous ‘hello world’ confetti – a pretty easy way to dress up your buffet table or where your guests are going to sit!
On the day
Now all your decorations and party food are planned, it’s time to add a couple of extra special touches for the day itself! We love this gorgeous baby shower sash for the mum-to-be – it even has a lovely tag to write the baby’s due date on!
Or how about getting all the guests involved with these adorable baby shower badges to hand out to the loved ones who best fit the title on the badge!
These baby shower advice cards are a fun baby shower activity and make a lovely memento of the day. Ask each guest to fill out their best advice to the mum-to-be!
Before everyone goes home
Last but not least, make sure you have plenty of mementos for the mum-to-be to keep as a memory of her baby shower! This adorable baby shower guest book lets each guest write a short message for the parents-to-be (and baby) on a wooden cloud, which can be kept in a frame and hung on the wall as a keepsake to keep forever!
Last but not least, how about this lovely fingerprint guestbook? Get each guest to stamp their fingerprint onto the guestbook for a unique keepsake for the mum and dad to be!
