These baby shower themes are just what you're looking for to make this special event truly unforgettable for new mums.
If you’ve been entrusted with planning a friend’s baby shower, you might be feeling a lot of emotions — honoured to have been chosen, thrilled to have control over the big day — you might also be feeling a little overwhelmed. There are a lot of baby shower themes out there, and you want to make sure you make the right decision.
The right theme will depend entirely on the tastes, preferences and personality of the mum-to-be. One might be traditional, conservative and low-key, while another might be showy, edgy and in favour of more gender-neutral tones. No matter what you’re looking for, we can help you out. Check out the creative baby shower themes below — there’s something here to suit everyone. We know you’ll have a blast!

1. A Bunny Themed Baby Shower
Particularly perfect for spring and Easter, a bunny-themed baby shower is a fun and adorable theme you can be creative with. Why not have some carrot cake in the shape of a carrot and thank your friends for hopping by. You can incorporate bunnies into the invitations, have rabbit banners and have iced-bunny cookies. You could even use Peter Rabbit as your inspiration. What’s not to love?
And we've got the perfect soft cuddly bunny for a baby shower gift!
2. Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star Theme
This is a popular theme and one that could be changed up so much to suit the personality of the mum-to-be. Whether you're welcoming a baby boy or a baby girl, this unisex theme is timeless. Use accents of silver or gold to make your decorations pop. Have star balloons; have star decorations hanging from the ceiling and spoil mum-to-be with these gorgeous Aden + Anais swaddles, decorated with delicate stars.
3. Roar! Dinosaur Themed Baby Shower
This prehistoric theme is one that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Especially popular for a little boy's shower, you can have fun by creating dinosaur cookies with little dino footprints, serving “dinosaur eggs” (they're really deviled eggs, but we won't tell) and hanging dino-themed balloons. If you have kids coming to the baby shower, this is a surefire winner! You might like to take a look at our dinosaur baby gifts for some gifting ideas.

4. Cheeky Monkey Baby Shower Theme
To celebrate the imminent birth of a cheeky monkey, why not use that as your theme? Think about what you can do with it — banana cake, Chunky Monkey ice cream, chocolate-dipped bananas and helium balloons with toy monkeys hanging from the strings. Be sure to take plenty of photos because when the baby is old enough to appreciate them, they’ll absolutely love them.
