Summer Baby Shower Ideas To Cool Things Down

Here’s the scoop!  With the temperatures heating up, everyone will appreciate a chance to cool down with a chilly summer treat.  Whether your love is for sorbet, sherbert, ice cream or milkshakes, you’ll find plenty of inspiration right there in the “freezer” when it comes to planning a cool baby shower for your baby boy or girl.  Ice cream has even inspired some of our most popular baby gifts!  Here are three ideas you may want to try.

I scream, you scream…

It’s hard to run into someone who truly doesn’t love ice cream (or frozen treats for that matter.)  There’s just something about that cool, creamy concoction that sends kids running to the sidewalk whenever they hear the bells of a beloved ice cream truck headed down their street.  And, it’s a love that stays with us all of our lives.  Perfect for a backyard barbecue, a shady spot in the park or a nostalgic ice cream parlor as a unique venue, here are a few ideas that will make your heart melt.

Childhood Memories Baby Shower

If your celebration is outside, chance are you’ll have a tough time keeping ice cream from melting when the temps are high.  So, arrange for an ice cream truck to do a drive by and pay guests a visit instead.  After having fun playing some field games, they’ll have their pick of all the flavors they loved as a child and might even venture out and find some new favorites for their list.  If you have a wide range of ages on your guest list, this idea will make sure that the adults and kids enjoy themselves.

Pickles and Ice Cream Baby Shower

Although expecting mothers are known to have some unusual cravings, there is none more unusual to me than pickles and ice cream!  A combination that can only be created by a woman with raging hormones, turn this oddity into an outstanding theme for the baby shower.  Play up the pickle part by allowing guests to provide “In A Pickle” new-mommy advice.  For your colors, use green (representing the pickle) along with the colors of your favorite flavors (strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, etc.), and keep it fun with paper flowers and pom-poms hanging from the ceiling.  Of course, you can serve ice cream for dessert, but don’t forget to add these tasty treats!

Ice Cream Parlor Baby Shower

Get ready for some retro fun with this fun baby shower idea.  Creating your own ice cream parlor will be like serving up a blast from the past.  Using pink, black and white as the color scheme, go for bold stripes and festive balloons to bring the decor to life.  Set up a DIY sundae bar where guests can choose from a variety of toppings and ice cream flavors.  Wouldn’t it be cool to have someone dressed in a 50’s costume dishing it out?  Play some classic games, like musical chairs and baby bingo and give guests an ice cream scoop baby shower favor to use at home as a memento.

As you can see, we’re totally into ice cream over here at the Corner Stork, which is why we’ve got quite a few “ice-cream” treats for your baby to use after the shower.
