Embracing a Healthy Family: My Ten Tips for Planning a Unique Baby Shower

My Ten Tips for Planning a Unique Baby Shower

TwitterMoms and Tiny Prints has another great blogging campaign and again, it's so timely as I'm planning my daughter's baby shower now!  Our theme is pink and brown polka dots and we're having a couple shower as her fiance is a baby and wants to be included!  I've been researching and trying to come up with fun ideas that are also elegant.  Tiny Prints offers baby shower invitations that also inspire my ideas.


Baby Shower Invitations Teddy Shower: Pink - Front : Carnation




  1. I've already made the diaper cake thanks to a past TwitterMoms campaign except I have to change the ribbon to match the theme as we had thought it was going to be a boy but we were surprised.  My instructional is here if you want to see it.
  2. I'm making all the baby shower decorations with my daughter with a paper cutter machine.  We plan to customize every aspect of the shower and with the two of us making everything, it will bring us more memories.
  3. I'm going to have the 4D ultrasound playing on the TV during the shower with no sound just so those who haven't seen it, will have a chance to view it too.
  4. For the baby shower invitations, I personalized the postage stamps with the 4D picture so everyone will have another memento of the big event.
  5. Each guest will have a CD of the 4D ultrasound to take home.
  6. The entire desert and food table will be food items in pink.  I already ordered the rock candy, swizzle sticks and pink taffy.  I have to find vases or glass bowls to set them up.
  7. An array of games will be planned that include personalize game pads of the baby shower for the guest.
  8. I'm making my own three tier cupcake stand of wood, fabric and ribbon to accentuate the cupcakes and be the centerpiece on the table.  I'm going to borrow a lot from the Minnie Mouse party I had for my other two daughters this summer (see picture below).
  9. Since this is our last year expected in our house before we move to El Paso (military), we decided to have it at home for sentimental purposes.  The house will prove to be a beautiful staging area as we utilize the architecture for the design of the theme.
  10. A photo of the baby inside a large white background frame will allow the guests to leave their well wishes and thoughts.  My daughter will be able to keep it for the memories.



Unfortunately, I'm still at the designing phase but those are 10 ideas I plan to utilize to make a very unique and special baby shower for my daughter.
