What do you do when the soon-to-be parents absolutely love camping? Every summer, they take to the woods to live amidst nature, so why not plan a baby shower for their new addition? After all, their little one will grow up camping. Might as well celebrate with a happy camper baby shower theme!
Not sure what to do with a unique theme like this one? We have inspiration for decor, food and baby gifts.
Unless you’re having the baby shower at a campground, you’ll need to bring the outdoors in. Even something as simple as filling a kayak with flowers will make the baby shower feel both fancy and outdoors-themed at the same time. Mimic the look of tents by draping lightweight fabrics.
For table lighting, you could use lanterns. Since this is a baby shower, have two large lanterns, representing mom and dad, and a little candle or tealight for the baby.
You can also use pine cones for little accents around the room. Create garlands with pine cones and string. You could even pick up large pine cones and add them to table centerpieces.
Snacks are a must for any baby shower. You can tailor just about any finger food to this theme. For instance, a bowl of strawberries or blackberries could be labeled “berry-picking.”
For edible party favors, go literal. Have some happy camper cookies made. Though your guests may eat them before they make it out the door!
Then again, nothing beats a cake. What’s the best camping dessert? S’mores! This cake combines them both for the ultimate campfire cake, which you can learn to make from Shower of Roses.
Need some inspiration for baby gifts? Sure, you could get the new parents a basket of diapers, but a happy camper-themed gift will make their day. For instance, this plaid outfit is too adorable for words.
The happy camper may just love animals. Get the upcoming baby a bear-themed cuddle pouch. It’s reversible, too!
Now the happy camper baby shower will be rustic, adorable and fun.
