Christmas Themed Baby Shower Planning
Christmas Baby Shower Invitations
Your friends and loved ones will be pleasantly surprised once they see a Christmas themed baby shower invite in the mail. Don’t be ashamed to have fun with the invitation wording. Show off your wit with an invitation available at Etsy.com or DIY.
Christmas Baby Shower Location Ideas
Your Christmas baby shower location could be magical either indoors or outdoors. You can celebrate in the comfort of your own home, or rent out a room at your local community clubhouse.
Christmas Baby Shower Themes
Your holiday baby shower theme can be anything from simple to ornamental. Either way, have fun with it.
Here are some examples of Christmas baby shower themes…
Winter Wonderland: Decorate your area with white and silver (or whatever color of your liking). String snowflake garlands on the walls or the ceiling. Don’t forget the tinsel, glitz, and glam of the winter holiday feel. Decorate your serving tables with icicles and sprinkle some white glitter on the table for a “snowy” look.
Oh, Holy Night: Inspired by the beautiful song, decorate a starry night in your living room with a gold and navy blue color scheme. Have fun with gold foil, and glitter stars sprinkled across your serving table.
Christmas Candy Land: Candy Land is the perfect idea for everyone to enjoy a delicious filled event. Hang up some candy canes and shiny ornaments and place them on your serving table to look like gum drops. Don’t forget the gingerbread house! A beautiful gingerbread house would be a perfect way to serve candy to your guests along with Christmas tins of cookies or cupcakes.
Rustic Cabin Pajama Party: Bring out the acorns and red plaid. Enjoy your baby shower by the fireplace in some warm, cozy pajamas. Incorporate your baby shower decorations with adorable baby Christmas socks and ugly sweaters.
Christmas Baby Shower Food
It’s only fitting to have traditional Christmas food at your baby shower. Whatever your Christmas traditions may be, serve up some comfort finger food like mini crab cakes, turkey sandwiches with a cranberry sauce or mini pumpkin pies. You can also serve a macaroni pie or a pasta salad as well.
Have fun with your serving tables with a hot chocolate bar. Make a spread with hot chocolate and white hot chocolate as well as candy canes, marshmallow, and whipped cream.
Another great idea is to have a popcorn serving table. Have your guest craft their own popcorn mix with an array of popcorn flavors as well as candy and or nuts. Make it self-serve friendly by providing take-home cups. Just make sure to have all the works to make it fun!
Christmas Baby Shower Cake
A great idea for your Christmas baby shower cake is to keep the cake simple but stick to the Christmas theme by adding kiwis (green!) and strawberries (red!) on a whipped cream vanilla cake.
If you want something more elaborate, try a Ferrero Rocher cake! This decadent cake will wow all your guests.
Christmas Baby Shower Outfit
Nothing is wrong with having fun with your outfit for your Christmas baby shower. Make it a pajama party with festive red and green pajamas (make sure your guests come in their pajamas as well!), or keep it simple with a beautiful flowing dress accentuating your beautiful baby bump.
Christmas Baby Shower Music
We can’t forget music for your Christmas themed baby shower! Spread holiday cheer with some old-time classics and fun, upbeat Christmas hits.
Christmas Baby Shower Games
Have fun with your loved ones with classic baby shower games with a holiday twist. Here are some great games you and your loved ones will enjoy:
Christmas Bingo: A classic baby shower game would get even better Christmas themed.
Random Drawing: Throughout the event, hold several drawings for your guest to win gift cards. The person randomly chosen would have to answer a question related to the holiday.
Ginger Bread House Contest: Have a mini gingerbread house contest and whoever has the best house wins a prize.
Christmas baby shower favors
Christmas baby shower favors are such an important part of your event. A nice peppermint Christmas candle or a hot chocolate kit in a mason jar is the perfect Christmas thank you gift. Not only is it cute, personalizing it with your name or image is a heartwarming little keepsake for your guests to remember you when your little one was still baking.
Baby Shower Christmas Ornaments
Baby shower Christmas ornaments glitz it up as much as you like really with some Christmas baby shower decorations. Embellish your area into the magical holiday you can always DIY with these great ideas if you’re looking for something more personal for the baby shower.
Baby Shower Christmas Tree
Last but not least, it wouldn’t be a Christmas themed baby shower without the Christmas tree. No need to spend extra money on decorations. The easy part about decorating your baby shower is that you’re spending less time decorating and finding pieces that you already may have in storage.
What I love about this theme for a baby shower is the coziness and the togetherness. It’s a very good idea to celebrate with your friends and family during the holiday season. With these tips, you and loved ones will be spreading extra holiday cheer at the end of the year or in the middle of summer with a Christmas themed baby shower.
