Adventure Awaits Baby Shower Invites

Design them to look like vintage postcards, boarding passes, or passports. Include travel-themed graphics such as airplanes, globes, suitcases, and maps. Personalize the invitations with phrases like “A New Adventure Awaits!” or “Join Us on a Journey to Celebrate Baby [Name]!” Use colors that evoke travel, such as earth tones, blues, and vintage hues, to create a cohesive and inviting look.

Adventure Awaits Baby Shower Decorations

Hang a large world map as a backdrop, and use strings of flags or bunting from different countries as garlands. Decorate the tables with vintage suitcases, globes, and mini airplanes. Incorporate maps and travel books into your centerpieces, and scatter small compasses, passport stamps, and travel-themed confetti on the tables. Use travel posters and postcards to add an authentic touch to the décor.

Carry the travel theme through to your table settings. Use tablecloths and napkins with map prints or in colors reminiscent of different destinations. For place cards, create miniature luggage tags with each guest’s name. Set the table with vintage-style plates and silverware, and use small suitcases or travel-themed containers as centerpieces. Personalized place settings with mini globes or airplane models add a unique touch.

Create a playlist that reflects the theme of travel and adventure. Include songs about different cities and countries, as well as instrumental music that evokes a sense of exploration. Classic travel tunes like “On the Road Again,” “Come Fly with Me,” and “Route 66” can set a lively and enjoyable atmosphere.

Map Themed Wrappers

Make sure that your cupcakes fit with the theme by using these map themed cupcake wrappers. These wrappers can turn even the simplest cupcakes into special creations that your guests will adore. You can use the same for the cups. Decorate the paper cups with the same wrappers for a perfect themed decor.

Welcome Aboard Decorative Sign

This welcome sign would look great in a hallway or on a front door to welcome guests to the party. The sign reads “Welcome Aboard Airways” and include the name of the baby being celebrated in bright red. Of course, it can be customized to match the colors of your baby shower.

Travel Baby Shower Centerpieces

Design centerpieces that embody the spirit of travel. Use vintage suitcases or packages stacked together with flowers or greenery spilling out. Place globes on stands and surround them with travel-themed trinkets like old cameras, compasses, and binoculars. Maps folded into decorative shapes or used as a base for flower arrangements add an elegant touch to the tables.

Travel Baby Shower Food

Craft a menu inspired by international cuisine to take guests on a culinary journey. Serve small bites from around the world, such as Italian bruschetta, Japanese sushi rolls, Mexican tacos, and French macarons. Label each dish with its country of origin using small flags or travel-themed cards. For dessert, consider mom’s to be’s favorite desserts from around the world! A cake shaped like a globe or adorned with fondant travel elements like passports and suitcases. Offer a “travel punch” with tropical flavors or a “jetsetter’s cocktail” bar featuring international drinks.


Travel Baby Shower Favors

Send guests home with travel-inspired favors to thank them for celebrating. Mini suitcases filled with candies, personalized luggage tags, or small travel journals make lovely keepsakes.

Another idea is to offer custom-made travel themed chip bag. Personalize each favor with a note “Thanks for Joining Us on This Journey!” to tie in with the theme.

Adventure Awaits Baby Shower Games

Baby Around the World Game

You can never go wrong with having a photobooth at the event but how about games? One of the most suited game for this theme would be ‘Baby Around the World’ game!. You’ll have a word ‘baby’ written in different languages. The guests will have to match  each ‘BABY’ to the correct language!


Guess the Destination Game

A “Guess the Destination” game involves showing photos or descriptions of famous landmarks and having guests identify the location.

Passport to Parenthood

Create a “Passport to Parenthood” game where guests offer parenting advice and stamp a passport booklet for the parents-to-be.


Travel Trivia

A “Travel Trivia” game with questions about different countries and cultures can also be entertaining.

Postcard Wishes

For a creative touch, set up a “Postcard Wishes” station where guests write their well-wishes on vintage postcards for the baby.

Travel Themed Photobooth

Set up a travel-themed photo booth with props and backdrops that evoke wanderlust. Use a large world map or a vintage airplane as the backdrop, and provide props like pilot hats, globes, suitcases, and postcards. Include a sign that says “Bon Voyage!” or “Adventure Awaits!” for guests to pose with. This setup ensures everyone can take home a memorable photo from the event.
