A Very Merry Baby Shower

Here are a few images from a “holiday” themed baby shower I hosted over the weekend, and the rest of the pics can be seen in the Holiday Baby Shower photo album over on the HWTM Facebook Page. Mom-to-be is having a girl, so I just added some pink ornaments & papers to our regular red & silver holiday decorations to turn them “baby girl appropriate” for the day…

Acrylic pacifiers, pink-labeled baby lotion & baby oil, baby socks, and “snow bunnies” were mixed into the decorations to give them a “baby shower” feel.

The tables looked full, but were decked out with mainly inexpensive details: the “table runners” were made from gift wrap, paper napkins were embellished with ribbon & gift tag “napkin rings”, and the red foil charger plates were $6.99/set of 4 at Target.

The overhead display in our kitchen was probably my favorite thing at the shower, (although it was hard to get a good shot of it with so much background stuff going on!). It was simply red and pink baby socks decorated with tiny ornaments + fun striped and polka dot ball ornaments hanging from pink satin ribbon.

I lucked out with these sparkly red & white “candy cane” letters that were on sale at Joann for $1 each! The apothecary jars are from Michaels and look just as cute filled with ornaments as they do with candy!

    I stumbled upon your site and have to say that this baby shower you threw is beautiful! I love the touch of the pink acrylic pacifiers and the snow bunnies. Too cute. You have a beautiful site, I’m excited to start following it!

    How sweet and adorable! Nicely planned. The entire theme and design is free from any type of congestion. Yet it is filled with a sense of completeness. I must admit that you have successfully “locked” the festive mood in this baby shower party. You have selected perfect color combination that reflects the happiness of new parents. You can check out unique collection of baby shower invitation cards. I liked
    your blog very much and wish to make a reference to your blog in our site, if you could
    kindly do the same for our site. Please feel free to send us your feedback to

    Thank you so much for this! I’m having my baby shower around Christmas time and was trying to give my mom (who is throwing the shower) an idea of what I was talking about. This is it!

    Hi Amanda –

    I’m so glad this helps! It honestly was a really fun baby shower to do & felt extra festive since everyone was already in the holiday spirit. I’m hoping someone needs a shower in October next year so I can try a Halloween-themed “Lil’ Pumpkin” baby shower :)

    Good luck with everything and congrats on the baby!
