Winter is a wonderful time to have a baby. The cooler temps make it the perfect weather for cuddling and staying inside as you adjust to life with a new little one. If you’re expecting a winter baby, a winter baby shower is a must!
A Winter Wonderland
Transform your baby shower space into a winter wonderland with lots of white and snowy goodness.
Add a little frost to your windows to create a magical baby shower. Use a spray or a window cling to help you achieve the look and you’re one step closer to a winter wonderland baby shower.
Create a garland of paper snowflakes in all shapes and sizes to hang around your winter baby shower space. White paper doilies grouped together create a beautiful centerpiece or table runner. These create a base for gorgeous greenery garlands or centerpieces.
If you’re designing signs for your winter baby shower, add some white snowy edges to them for more frosty detail, and sprinkle fake snow throughout the space to create a space that captures the magic of the season.
Spruce Up a Winter Baby Shower
There’s no better decor for a winter baby shower than some fresh spruce trees, wreaths and sprigs of green. Not only are they readily available, their style is the perfect accent to this rustic baby shower theme.
Decorate your entryway with a pair of antique skis, snowshoes or a sled and dress it up with a fresh green wreath. Your decor greets guests with the warmth and style of the season.
Inside, adorn your tables with small potted pine trees wrapped in burlap. Add sprigs of greenery to your cakes and cupcakes for a pop of green on white frosting. You can even create a spruce garland with branches from a tree in your yard and tie the stems together until you get a garland
A little green will go a long way in this winter baby shower.
Fun Activities for the Baby Shower
There are lots of fun activities you can do at a winter baby shower. Set up a hot cocoa station for guests to create their own cocoa concoctions. Include different syrups and liqueurs to use as mixers and whipped cream and sprinkles for toppings.
Looking for a fun activity for your guests to do at a winter baby shower? Decorate snowflake sugar cookies! Have the cookies baked in advance and provide everything your guests would need to decorate beautiful cookies. And once they’re done, they can take their cookies home in cute little favor bags.
Instead of a card, have each guest bring a book for the new baby. Storytime will be so much more fun when you’re reading your friends and family’s favorite childhood books to your little one.
