Party: Fantastic Fox Baby Shower

It’s my belief that every good baby shower has a theme (and not just pink or blue). It doesn’t have to be over the top or loud, but something guests will recognize – plus it will help you carry the decor throughout the party space, ultimately making decorating that much easier! My theme for Elysia’s shower was Fantastic Fox- Orange and white, and navy blue because she’s having a BOY! She decorated her nursery around a fox theme, so I thought that was a perfect jumping off point for me to plan her shower. I took to Etsy to find theme-appropriate party decor, but unfortunately they didn’t arrive on time, ARGH. I had to improvise a bit by substituting what would be fox items with more orange decor, and luckily I had plans to create a fox cake which helped establish the theme.

Here’s what I feel are baby shower must-haves:

  • Theme. Tip: If you’re stumped on a theme think about the interests or hobbies of the parents-to-be. Do they dance or play sports? Do they have a favourite animal or favourite vacation spot?
  • Feature cake/dessert
  • Activity & prizes
  • Photo wall/booth
  • Gift ‘throne’ or corner
  • Decor & Balloons
  • Thank-you gift

Here’s a look at my shower:

Theme: Fantastic Fox

Featured Dessert: I had a couple. The grandmas-to-be ordered a gorgeous cake from Sugared and Spiced and I also made a mini fox cake and a doughnut board. I bought a peg board and wooden pegs at Lowes (tip: they can cut it down , then created a header

Activity: Onesie decorating and a guess the candy jar. The winners of both won adorable tea towels.

Photo Wall: Made out of tissue pouffs, gold garland and a gold cursive ‘baby’ balloon

Gift Corner: I strung garland over the chair and stuck ‘B A B Y’ balloons on the adjacent wall to create a fully decorated gift corner.

Decor: Pouffs, garland, white 24″ balloons (because what’s a party without balloons). Don’t forget to incorporate ‘baby’ items! I glued toothpicks on laser cut onesies and used them as food tags

 

Until my next post, Jessica ❤
