A Fox in Socks Baby Shower

We all have a favorite author of creative children’s books, and for many of us that author is Dr. Seuss. Centering a baby shower theme around one of his books is a fun way to do something different. And with the recent popularity of woodland animals, a Fox in Socks themed baby shower is the perfect idea.

Sly Fox Decor

There is an abundance of fox-inspired decor available right now, making this an easy-to-do theme! From prints to onesies to hooded bath towels, the little baby will be showered with these cute woodland creatures. You can even create cute fox themed sweets, like cupcakes and cookies, for a snack that will match the theme perfectly.

Socks for the Baby

As a fun little addition to a card or a gift, have each guest bring baby a pair of socks. Baby socks are always being kicked off or lost, so this will not only match the theme, but it will also be graciously received by the mom-to-be who will soon need a stash of them!

Details from the Book

In the Fox in Socks book, Dr. Seuss mentions some fun rhyming words: chicks & bricks and blocks & clocks. One way to bring a little more of the book into this theme is to include some of these fun words in the decor. You can incorporate clocks into the table centerpieces and use blocks and play bricks as decor or for the little ones to play with at the party. There are so many fun ways to incorporate the book into a baby shower!
