Have you experienced how it feels to learn that you’re expecting a baby? If you have been waiting for it to happen for so long then, you must have jumped or clapped your hands in happiness. You’d be bursting with excitement to announce to family and friends that you’re having a baby. As a parent-to-be, you’d be preparing baby things months before you give birth. That’s what soon-to-be parents usually do!

Throwing a baby shower for super-excited parents will not be hard then. Events by Collette shared decorating ideas that showed the parents’ excitement for the arrival of their bundle of joy.

Events by Collette put together the baby shower centerpieces using alphabet boxes, baby milk bottles, and balloons.

They tied together three milk bottles with a pink ribbon and use them as base to hold the silver and pink balloons. Then, they arranged the alphabet boxes on both sides of the bottles. The overall message says that the parents are well-prepared for the baby and now celebrating the joy with family and friends.

Some soon-to-be parents are so excited that they would start planning for their baby’s future prior to his or her birth. They already have in mind what will the baby’s career would be. What school should the baby go to; what hobbies and sports should he or she join, and so on. If you will be hosting a baby shower for parents-to-be who are expecting a baby boy then, you might want to have a sports theme baby shower.

You can choose a sports baby shower theme for a particular sport only such as basketball, football, etc. This would be ideal for parents who love a specific sport. Yet, if they are into any kind of athletic games then might as well do an All Sports Theme baby shower like Véronique Events did.

Event planning company Véronique Events arranged an All Sports Theme baby shower for a baby boy at the Manhattan Beach Country Club. They dressed up Teddy Bears in athletic shirts, jerseys, and cheer leader outfits. To create the sporty ambiance to the party, they used the costumed Teddy Bears as baby shower centerpieces.

Véronique Events laid out two trays on a table for the onesie-designing activity for the guests. The guests had the chance to draw on blank white onesies using the crayons provided.

The guests shared brunch selections of Vegetarian Quiche Smoked Salmon, Greek Yogurt Parfaits, and sliced fresh fruits. They get to choose from breads and pastries such as muffins, croissants, bagels, pretzel rolls, and French toasts. Breakfast staples like maple syrup and whipped butter Pancakes and omelet were also served. An Omelet Station was set up for guests to choose their fillings and toppings.

For dessert, they got to enjoy chocolate chip cookies, brownies, and other pastries. They also have coffee, hot teas, iced tea, lemonade, and mimosas.

Remember how it feels to be a parent for the first time? The excitement of seeing the baby, the fear of the changes that comes with it – feelings and emotions that new parents usually have. Some wants to know the gender of their babies so they can prepare the things that will be appropriate for them. Others however, just want to savor the excitement a little longer and want the baby’s gender to be a surprise. If you will host a unisex baby shower, a Jungle-themed baby shower is a perfect choice!

LA-based Véronique Events had organized a baby shower for a mom who wants to be surprised at Manhattan Beach Country Club. Since the gender of the baby is not known yet, Véronique and her crew decorated opted for a Jungle-themed baby shower. They incorporated stuffed animals like giraffe, zebra, lion, tiger, monkey, and more to all of their decorations.

Here’s how the table at the entrance looked like:

To keep to the Jungle-themed shower, Véronique Events prepared animal-shaped candles as baby shower favors. They have Safari-inspired boxes with cute animal tags and gold ribbons.

The guests enjoyed brunches such as Vegetarian Quiche Smoked Salmon with capers, tomatoes, onions; Greek Yogurt Parfaits; sliced fresh fruits; and maple syrup and whipped butter Pancakes. Caesar Salad, Asian Salad, Hot Buffet Chicken Breast, and cheese tortellini with pesto cream were also part of the menu. They also set up an Omelet Station where guests can choose the toppings or fillings that they want. The choices were feta cheese, cheddar cheese, salsa, guacamole, veggies, mushrooms, and caramelized onions.

For the kids, they have a Kid’s Buffet of Mac ‘n Cheese and French Fries with ketchup on the side.

The guests indulged themselves in chocolate chip cookies, brownies, and other pastries of the world. The beverages included coffee, hot tea, iced tea, lemonade, and mimosas.

If you will be working with a limited budget, you can DIY the centerpieces and other decorations. Replacing the menu for simpler dishes and beverages would also help. But, if you have plenty of funds to hire an event planner then, do so. You can have the Jungle-themed baby shower or any baby shower theme that you like customized to your needs.
