Look What April Showers Are Bringing
April showers bring May flowers—and if you're ready to pop, a sweet, Springtime baby! This rainy day motif full of fluffy clouds, cheerful umbrellas, and jolly rainboots is the perfect match for your spring baby sprinkle. It's an ideal party aesthetic for a space where you can hang decor from the ceiling, ranging from chubby cloud balloon clusters to dangling vertical raindrop garlands.
Instead of cards, encourage guests to gift "a book for a rainy day." Everyone will bring their favorite picture book to share with your precious baby, and you'll have an instant collection of rainy day reads. Have guests write a note for the baby on the inside cover, then display them on a table or shelf to effortlessly add to the party decor.
One of our favorite spring baby shower themes for moms welcoming babies around Eastertime is an egg-and-bunny aesthetic. It's a sweet and engaging theme for an outdoor "garden party." Decorate with a gorgeous egg-inspired balloon arch, fill your dessert table with precious bunny peeps, and deck the space with airy pastels for a cohesive look.
You can use inexpensive plastic Easter eggs to create a shower game that playful guests adore. Fill your eggs with jellybeans, candy, and treats, plus add a plastic charm like a pacifier, baby bottle, or mini stroller. Only one egg will contain a plastic baby, and the guest who finds it will win a prize.
A floral theme makes for a beautiful spring baby shower filled with spring bouquets, brilliant color, and plenty of treats that resemble your favorite growing things. Many moms love having a "flower wall" covered in colorful blooms, which is the perfect backdrop for selfies, Insta photos, and precious shower memories. The mom-to-be can wear a flower crown, or you can provide one for all of your guests to create magical pictures.
At this party, aesthetics are everything, so prioritize gorgeous centerpieces and a lovely location. Your mom-to-be might enjoy an afternoon tea served on tiered trays. If you use china teacups, they make perfect party favors.
After those rainy April showers, the sun will shine on you and your sweet baby. Skip to the good part by planning a baby shower with a stunning spring sunshine theme. Decorate using bright shades of eye-catching yellow, which looks great with pops of aqua or hot pink (so you can effortlessly incorporate the baby's gender).
Fill your dessert spread with sunny treats like celestial yellow cake pops, lemonade, tart lemon macarons, and sunflower-topped cupcakes. Guests will enjoy playing baby shower Bingo using sunny pom poms as markers. It's the perfect activity to keep guests busy while mom opens her gifts.
If you're a mom-to-bee welcoming a little honey in the springtime, try a spring-inspired baby shower with a baby bumblebee theme. Guests adore this yellow-and-black aesthetic, loaded with flowers, honeycomb, and adorable bee imagery. Your sweet dessert table is sure to be the star when you fill it with nature-inspired treats with flavors like honey, lavender, spring lemon, and licorice.
Once your guests settle in, why not keep them busy as bees with a pacifier hunt? Hide a collection of colorful pacifiers throughout your venue and task attendees with hunting down as many as possible. The busiest bee can take home a beeautiful prize.
Sweet Pea Theme
Spring is a time for growing things, and if you're cultivating a sweet pea, you might choose to celebrate with a darling vegetable garden theme. Fill your space with verdant green details, precious polka dots, paper lanterns, and a peapod-inspired balloon garland. Deck the area with classy Parisian decor that evokes a gorgeous garden in Normandy.
Fill a series of glass canisters with round green candies, from gumballs to M&M's, and allow guests to help themselves to the harvest as they curate their own favor bags. Guests will enjoy playing "diaper pong" with ping-pong balls that match the round, pea-inspired aesthetic. The mom-to-be can keep the diapers at the end.
