Easter is a time to celebrate blessings, nostalgia, and family. It marks the beginning of spring and the bloom of new life and sunshine—and a wonderful time for a baby shower. There is no better way to celebrate an upcoming bundle of joy than with bright colors of pastels and a warm welcome of light fares and sweet treats. By incorporating Easter and a baby shower together, your event is sure to be nothing short of enchanting.
Easter Theme Decorations
An Easter baby shower should be bright and offer an open, airy ambience. Decorations are plentiful and some you can even incorporate activities with. Pastel colors are a must for your canvas for an Easter baby shower, and because these hues are so crisp and clean, mixing and matching up décor for your celebration is so simple. For gender specific decorations, go with light blues and yellows as your base colors for a boy, and pale pinks and greens for a girl. Flag streamers with the letters of the soon-to-be baby and pastel balloons with polka dots or striped designs keep in theme with a clean, delightful look.
Floral arrangements for centerpieces or even more subtle accents should include hydrangeas in ivories, baby blues, or blush pinks. You’ll want to be extra generous on the amount of flowers you use in an Easter baby shower, as it’s not only the time for the birth of a baby, but also the birth of a fresh spring. White frilly tablecloths and garlands made from yellow bunny cutouts add a soft touch, while teacups, china plates, and gold silverware bring an extra air of sophistication to the party. Remember that while you’re going for a classy look with this theme, it’s also a good idea to add a dash of fun as well. Bunnies, Easter eggs, and baby chicks really showcase the excitement of the bundle of joy.
Easter Theme Food Table
As everyone knows, Easter is a time for candy and this baby shower is no exception. Setting up a large, main event table that houses treats that are not only delicious, but also a feast for the eyes, is definitely a staple you want for this baby shower. A diaper cake for the mom-to-be decorated in bright yellow baby chicks is a beautiful adornment and will also be extremely useful when the baby comes. You also can’t beat a real cake, of course, and an embellished one full of all the best details of Easter is perfect. If this is a gender reveal shower, then using the cake to surprise your guests is a popular option. The inside of the cake should be blue or pink, so that when you cut into it, the color does the revealing for you! This is a clever and super memorable way to celebrate the little boy or girl newborn.
The main table should also house an array of pastel-colored candies in tall apothecary jars, sugar cookies frosted with images of eggs, bunnies, and flowers, the traditional peeps and Cadbury eggs, and chocolate covered cordials. Fluffy cupcakes and cake pops are also a delightful addition that an Easter shower can’t do without. For other snacks, cups of ranch dressing with carrots dipped inside and cucumber sandwiches are great grab and go options that still offer a lighter fare to balance all the rich desserts.

Easter Baby Shower Favors
You can get really creative with party favors for your guests with an Easter baby shower, and the biggest part of that creativity comes from the presentation. Putting your party favors in themed Easter baskets or inside plastic eggs is an energetic and playful twist on showing your guests appreciation. Great ideas for memorable favors are cute Easter figurines like a smiling baby chick hatching out of its egg or a hopping bunny with an Easter basket. Fuzzy socks in bright colors folded into the shape of a bunny’s head are unique and useful, and miniature bird houses are elegant and a forever keepsake.
When you put together great décor, delicious food, and thoughtful gifts, you have the happy recipe for an unforgettable Easter baby shower and a joyous welcome to spring that has finally arrived.
