Time flies when you’re pregnant! Throw a gorgeous baby shower for the mom-to-be in your life to help her slow down and enjoy this unique time. If you’re not sure where to begin, check out this complete list of the finest baby shower ideas, which includes themes, decorations, food, baby shower activities, party goodies, and more!
Baby Shower Party Ideas
Throwing a baby shower takes a lot of effort and energy as it is, but knowing that the special mama-to-be is a minimalist can add a few wrinkles to the standard baby shower planning.
You’ve been entrusted with a monumental duty if you’ve been chosen to hold a baby shower for a minimalist friend or family member.
The good news is that, because your friend is a minimalist, throwing her a baby shower may be easier because she believes that less is more for her.
Keeping it simple does not imply that the shower will be any less special. Without all of the normal props and products that seem to be required in our modern culture, a minimalist baby shower can be just as significant.
My sisters and mother, in fact, threw me a simple baby shower when I was expecting my twins. Because it was simple, I never felt it was any less special.
I’m going to provide some unique ideas for cutting the fluff and amplifying the meaning of your baby shower without sacrificing any of the key elements.
You’ve already lessened the formality of the celebration by changing the location, which is likely what the expectant mother would prefer.
If hiring a hall isn’t an option due to space constraints, it’s another approach to keep things simple.
My sisters made diaper cakes as decorations for my baby shower. They were adorable, and they were obviously very valuable to me subsequently!
Simple centerpieces that also serve as storage for items the mama truly requires are a terrific way to keep things simple.
You can save money on sophisticated food by holding the baby shower before or after lunch.
Brunch with basic breakfast-type dishes like bagels, muffins, fruit salads, a charcuterie board, or quiche is a terrific idea after a mid-morning shower.
With a post-lunch shower, an afternoon tea with finger sandwiches or a dessert bar is ideal.
This style of shower is perfectly acceptable as long as visitors are informed ahead of time that they should not expect a full dinner.
Party Games and Activities
Some individuals enjoy games and activities at baby showers, while others are less enthusiastic.
Most minimalists, I believe, lean toward the “meh” side of the discussion.
If you want to include games, make sure the visitors are involved in activities that have a purpose.
Fill out a page for a baby advice scrapbook and have the ladies sign it. Alternatively, have visitors make a ‘baby bucket list’ of activities for mom and baby to do during the first year.
Have guests create a onesie for the new baby as another enjoyable activity that can benefit mom and baby in the future.
Simply get a bag of white Gerber onesies and some fabric markers to get started. It’s also a good touch to have some basic design ideas on hand for your less imaginative guests.
Guests can join in the excitement and assist in making any ‘crafty’ nursery décor that the mama desires, such as these delightful and affordable paper poms. All you’ll need is a few packets of colorful tissue paper, scissors, thread or string, and an iPad to watch the YouTube tutorial.
Party Favor Inspirations
What better way to express gratitude to your caring friends and family than by sending them home with homemade baby shower party favors? From nautical-themed parties to lovely soirees with a woodland baby shower theme, these adorable tiny gifts are suitable for every kind of party.
Mini Body Butters
Your guests can carry your homemade creations wherever they go when you gift these mini body butter containers. Fill small jars with just coconut oil and vanilla extract for smooth hand or lip cream that’s easy to keep in a purse.
Bath Salt Hearts
Design a conversation heart based on your favorite Valentine’s Day candy into a calming bath bomb. Include a collection of various scents in a take-out food carton and add a label with instructions.
Hot Cocoa Mix
If you’re cozying up for a winter baby shower, package hot chocolate mix, marshmallows and a wooden spoon in a small burlap bag. Tie it all up with some ribbon and a loving message.
Thank all your best ladies by sending them home with a rosé-ready wine glass customized for your shower. Pair with mini bottles of rosé wine or pink champagne.

The best element of any baby shower or party is the people! You should always ask the parents-to-be who they would like to include on the guest list. This can be anyone from family and friends to neighbors and co-workers.
