If pregnancy brain is already taking over, don’t worry! Our list below will ensure that you don’t forget a thing. From invitations to culinary creations, we’re here to make sure you have the best St. Patrick’s Day baby shower ever!

St. Patrick’s day baby shower themes

Green is the traditional color for St. Patrick’s Day, right? So you can easily base your baby shower theme around this. However, adding other colors into the mix, like golds, oranges, and yellows, will keep things vibrant and exciting.

Bear in mind that green may not be everyone’s favorite color, but there are plenty of different shades of it available so you should be able to find one that will help set the scene.

When we think of St.Patricks day what comes to mind is shamrocks, leprechauns, rainbows, and pots of gold so try incorporating these into your baby shower, also.

If you have a warm season or beautiful weather on the outlook for this particular day, head outdoors and take advantage of the greenery surrounding you. Plants, trees, flowers, and bushes are all perfect and natural decor for your shower. Cold winter season? Then stay indoors but look at placing greenery around the room to help set your theme.

Don’t forget that all important food and drink! Continuing with the St Patrick’s day theme, make sure to incorporate your color selections into your food and beverages.

Food Suggestions

  • A platter of green finger food such as cucumber, broccoli, and celery. Pair with a delicious flavored dip!
  • A fruit platter that is arranged in a shape of a rainbow is a way to add color to your spread.
  • Use an edible gold spray like this one from Amazon to spray Oreos to look like gold coins!
  • Deviled eggs stuffed with avocado will be a hit.
  • Platters of bite-sized food will make it easier for your guests to grab and eat. Items such as mini quiche, bruschetta with feta, tomato and basil, and mini-club sandwiches are all a treat!
  • Be sure to serve your baby shower food with St. Patrick’s Day-themed serviettes.

Drink Suggestions

  • Upon arrival, offer your guests a glass of shamrock punch – mix lime juice and lemonade together, then add a touch of all-natural green food coloring and stir. Pour into a large punch bowl and place in some freshly cut lime and ice.
  • Green tea.
  • A selection of fruit juice as not everyone will fancy a green beverage.
  • Fruit-infused water.

Having a drink station set up is a great option as it allows your guest to help themselves. In keeping with the theme, pair your drinks with these St. Patrick’s day straws!
