Babies are pure magic, and for the mama-to-be with a sparkling personality and a love for color, a magic-filled baby shower is just the theme she needs! Today we’re sharing 9 ideas for a magical baby shower that will inspire you to throw a shower she’ll love.
A magical baby shower can be done in many different ways, but hosting a confetti-filled unicorn inspired day is one that you can have lots of fun with – especially when you get creative.
Survey your space and decide where the best places to decorate will be. Colorful pennant garlands over a sweets table can add a bit of color and a whimsical feel, especially when paired with tissue paper pom poms hanging from the ceiling.
Other fun decor to include: pastel streamers, tissue honeycomb balls, tassel garlands and more pulled together and strung above the main table create a magical setting to celebrate the new mom and baby.
Confetti is the perfect decor addition for this theme! Start with colors of confetti – bright pinks, blues, purples and oranges are a wonderful palette for this theme. Fill large, round, clear balloons with colorful confetti for an extravagant balloon wall or garland. Then sprinkle your tables with confetti and serve your guests with confetti inspired plates and cups.
When it comes to the style of confetti – make your own with different colored tissue paper and hole punches in different shapes, that way you can make them the size you want for easy clean up when the party is over.
Sprinkled with Love
What goes great with confetti at a magical baby shower? Sprinkles! And sprinkles fit right in with the magical baby shower theme.
There are so many sweets you can decorate with sprinkles, and so many ways you can include the shower guests in decorating those sweets – it’s the perfect way to keep them busy during the shower.
Start with a sweets table with different pastries, cookies and waffles. Make sure there are lots of sprinkles and toppings for your guests to decorate their sweets with – try different frostings, fruits, and whipped creams. Then they can enjoy their magical creations while they play another game or mingle with other guests.
Looking for the perfect sprinkle party favor? Fill little customized bottles with colorful sprinkles for them to use on their sweets at home, it will be a fun way for them to remember the new mom’s magical baby shower!
