If you want a baby shower that has a pleasing and warm feel to it, then rustic may be the theme for you. This type of party is best suited for an outdoor event. There are many decorations in this theme, so you can mix and match as your heart desires. For example, if you wanted to have a farm-themed shower, you could use food containers as vases, hay bales as tables, and wooden crates as chairs. If that wasn’t enough to get the theme across, you could even use an old tractor or wagon for decoration. 


Contemporary and Rustic

Themes don’t have to be strict. You can mix them. For example, a contemporary or rustic theme can work well with floral or seaside décor. Contemporary and rustic themes may rely on bold colors and geometric shapes to make the space pop. 


Choose to ask your family or friends to find clothes and dresses online that fit this theme. 


Modern and Classic

Modern and classic is a modern take on the classic baby shower. These themes will be more sleek and sophisticated, with less of an emphasis on bows and flowers. Modern baby showers are perfect for those who want to avoid having their party look too cutesy or childish. With this theme, you’ll have a fun yet elegant event. This theme pairs nicely with a pastel color palette for your table decorations and party favors. You could even go with brighter colors like oranges and yellows if you prefer!



The classic theme is perfect for the more traditional bride. If you are planning a vintage or rustic-inspired event, then a classic baby shower may be perfect for you. This theme is elegant and refined, with a focus on classic decorations and styles. There will be plenty of lace, pearls, and old-fashioned touches that fit in perfectly with this theme. Your guests will also love this theme because it’s not too overbearing and can please both men and women alike.



The theme of a seaside baby shower is sure to make your guests feel like they are on vacation! Think ocean blue, sand, seashells, and maybe even some seagulls. You can set up festive tables with blue and white checkered tablecloths and plenty of different types of seafood. Include fun decorations like tiki torches, starfish, and other beach-themed items.


Seaside baby showers are perfect for those who love the feeling of being at the beach. The best way to decorate would be with blue or green checkered tablecloths or even a striped tablecloth. You should also include seashells and starfish as decorations. Be sure to include tiki torches or other lights that will put off a beachy vibe as well!

If your style is more on the feminine side, floral may be the way to go. This theme celebrates the beauty of spring and life.


Floral themes are typically filled with pastel colors and delicate flowers. You can decorate with fresh flowers, like lilies or roses, or use artificial flowers in a variety of shapes and colors. Add some tulle to create a soft feel, or cover tables with a beautiful tablecloth in a complementary color to add some elegance.


There are many ways you can incorporate floral into your event—from tablecloths and centerpieces to balloons and flower petals on the floor. You can even scatter flower petals down the aisle at your ceremony. 


If you’re interested in this theme for your baby shower, we suggest choosing simple decorations such as one large centerpiece or multiple smaller ones throughout the room. This ensures that there won’t be too much going on at once, which is vital because there will be plenty of other things like games and socializing.

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
