Celebrate the impending arrival of a mother-to-be with pink and gold strawberry shortcake baby shower theme party ideas. Check out all of my party advice and cuisine ideas, including strawberry shortcake party décor and invitations!
Strawberry Shortcake Baby Shower Invitations
If you are interested in something fancy that can be hand-delivered to your guests, head to your local craft store and purchase simple straw hats that you decorate with fabric strawberries and pink and red ribbon.
Inside the hats, ask your guests to attend your Strawberry Shortcake Party for a Berry Great Girl! Make sure to request that your guests wear their straw hats to your party.
For those of you who find it hard to make cute invitations, just download these free templates that I am sharing with you.
If you’re wondering how to download this template collection and what you should do next, please read and follow these following guides:

- Right-click the template and choose “save image as” to save it.

If the download process has finished, Open the file with either Microsoft Word or Adobe Photoshop. Then insert your text or party information. Print the final draft on cardstock or any type of printing paper.
For this party, it’s all about pink, red, and white for your color scheme. Balloons, streamers, confetti, and tulle to make the room and party chairs fancy are all appropriate to make this party extra sweet.
Make your balloons look like strawberries by blowing up red balloons and drawing black seeds all over each one. Bunch these around the front door of the party or scatter them around the party yard (with weights attached) to make a strawberry field.
On the front door, hang a banner that says “Welcome to Strawberryland!” Also, add colorful balloons to your entry area to attract your guests’ attention.
Don’t forget the strawberries. Cut out large strawberries from red construction paper and decorate your front door with them. Hang them with a fishing line from the ceiling, place them on the backs of the party chairs, and have a strawberry path leading to your front door.
Play Strawberry Shortcake music throughout your party. For a table centerpiece, gather up your child’s Strawberry Shortcake dolls (or maybe you still have yours) and place them in the center of the table. These sweet Strawberry Shortcake ideas will really make your party a hit.
Cake and Snack Ideas
The cupcakes will be homemade with a vanilla pound cake topped with homemade whipped cream and topped with a sliced strawberry with a little toothpick of Strawberry Shortcake on top. Each cupcake will be placed in a Strawberry Shortcake cupcake paper holder.
After cake and ice cream, the party will end with Strawberry Shortcake cardboard boxes, each containing homemade multi-colored sprinkled sugar cookies in the shape of strawberries, in each box with a thank-you birthday note from the Birthday Girl.
The Birthday Girl will thank each of her friends for coming and have them sing Strawberry Shortcake’s “The Cookie Song” as a final good-bye. At the end of the hand-out will read a popular Strawberry Shortcake quote: “Life is Delicious!”.
The party was in the mid-afternoon to avoid having to cook a meal. Before the cake, I served fresh strawberries with toothpicks, white chocolate (dyed yellow using food coloring) covered pretzel sticks with yellow M&Ms stuck to them in a line, and M&M’s separated out in dishes of yellow, red, and green.
Using plastic sundae dishes, write the names of your guests on them with paint pens and then fill them with strawberry goodies, either real strawberries, strawberry gummies, or other strawberry candies.
These dishes will make perfect take home gifts that your guests can use again later and keep as a reminder of your special party. We hope these Strawberry Shortcake party ideas make your little one’s party fun and memorable!
