Is your best friend expecting a baby this coming yuletide season? Or perhaps she wants to celebrate the recent birth of your son or daughter with a grand baby shower this Christmas?
If you are planning to celebrate a baby shower this Christmas, then you need to have the right decor to go with it. There are many cool and bright ideas in making decor that will fit both occasions. From a delightful palate of red and green colors to glimmering golds and silvers, this event is sure to have everyone in the spirit of joy.
Whimsical and fun are the feelings you want to aim for with a Christmas baby shower. Think about why and how it is that the season of Christmas brings us all together and incorporate that into the overall ambiance of the party. Miniature, baby everything in the spirit is a great addition—i.e., elves, reindeer, woodland creatures, Christmas wreaths, trees, or ornaments. It adds a touch of cuteness to tie in small décor with the theme of the baby.
Christmas Baby Shower Invitations
You could start off with the wording”A little bundle of JOY is on the way!” followed by other essential details of the invitation. For the design, you could have baby items in Christmas colors, with polka dots or snowflakes background.
Christmas Baby Shower Decorations
You can stick with a simple array of colors: the standard ruby and hunter green, along with crisp adorning hues like ice whites and blues, and plenty of sparkles.
The decorations for a Christmas baby shower are really all about the little things. Red tablecloths adorned with bowls of glittery pinecones or figurines of a baby deer family is an example of how great simple Christmas colors merge splendidly with flashier accents.
Miniature wreath garlands and tinsel strung throughout the room mixed with warm lighting give the space a cozy feel, while paper snowflake cutouts bring in a youthful look.
Placing stuffed toys under the Christmas tree is a perfect Christmas decoration that also fits a baby shower. If you have ordinary dolls and stuffed toys around, simply add some improvements to make them look more Christmassy.
For example, you can tie a red cloth around the doll or stuffed toy that would make it look like it’s wearing a red scarf. Add Santa hats and it will be a perfect baby shower Christmas decor.
Don’t forget a delightfully decorated gift table as well, complete with a guestbook for all attendees to sign and give well wishes for the new addition.
Christmas Diaper Cake
For decoration, opt for unique pieces as well, such as a Christmas themed diaper cake! This is as functional as it is creative and it’s something that both the mom and guests will be simply “wow’d” with.
“Baby It’s Cold Outside” Cake Topper
If red and green is not your ideal color combination, this silver cake topper will be sure to still keep you in the holiday spirit. The topper would work great for a Christmas themed baby shower or a winter wonderland themed baby shower.
The piece is laser cut from heavy silver card stock. It measures approximately six inches tall and is glittered on one side. The topper is available in a variety of colors, so if you do want to stick to the classic colors of Christmas, you can create a custom order.
Christmas Snowflake and Circles Confetti
Having a baby is something to celebrate, so help your guests get into the celebratory mood with the Christmas confetti! This confetti would look beautiful covering tables or spread out around a display. The confetti comes packaged with fifty snowflakes and fifty glittery circles. While the picture shows the circles in a warm red color, you can custom order to match the colors of your party.
Christmas Themed Baby Shower Banner
A banner is an easy way to add decor to blank walls or add an extra special touch to the party room. This Christmas themed banner would look lovely hanging above a fireplace. The banner includes the name of the baby being celebrated and three adorable glittery Santas.
Christmas Baby Shower Centerpiece
A great centerpiece idea for the table would be to have a small tabletop Christmas tree decorated with baby items such as pacifiers, rattles, thermometer, baby socks, tiny nail clippers, and more. Make them items the mom can really use for the baby.
Christmas tree can be simple white branches that you can create yourself. You’d need to find a right-sized tree branch from your garden or nearby park. Paint them white, and decorate them. Tie ribbons to the items and tie them to the branches of a little tree. A perfect gift for mom-to-be too!
If you are on a tight budget, rather than having baby items, you can create your ornaments using baby item images such as booties, milk bottle, rattle, baby-foot, carriage, ABC blocks, ducks, etc. You can easily find images to print from google image. Type ‘baby items’ on google image, If the baby is already born, then you can have baby photos.
Christmas Baby Shower Food
Food for a Christmas baby shower is one of the most fun things to put together. A menu of delectable treats, eats, and beverages really make the party a memorable one, so remember you can never have too many cupcakes or cookies!
Bake up some cookies using the shape of baby booties, baby feet, or carriage cutters and frost them with holiday-colored icing. Or you could make angels, candy canes, snowman-shaped cookies with blue or pink icing. Cookies in the form of baby gingerbread might also be a cute idea.
You can’t forget about the main event cake, either, and a multi-tiered cake is typically the way to go. Red and white stripes reminiscent of a candy cane with a topper of the baby’s name would really steal the show.
Dips and finger foods are the way to go for salty fares, and remember to create curly-cued letters to form food labels. Hot cider, hot chocolate, and a Grinch-inspired punch round out the eating tables with true to the season beverages.
Speaking of the Grinch, a final touch of nostalgic décor that will tie the whole party together is pin-ups of childhood Christmas movies. Posters or prints of A Christmas Carol, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Frosty the Snowman, and all other beloved holiday films bring the feel of the season and the joy of a new baby.
