Valentine’s Baby Shower Decorations

Decorations are aplenty when it comes to Valentine’s Day and you can be as bold or as subtle as you’d like. It’s best to stick with three main colors to stay in theme: pinks, reds, and whites. You can’t go wrong with classic décor in Valentine’s Day hues and patterns, like polka dotted or silvery balloons to tie to tables and chairs, or heart splashed streamers that accent doorways or ceilings.

Heart garland in red and pink would add a sweet touch and this can be strung up in more than one place throughout your venue. Less classic décor that really add a brilliant flair to a baby shower are big pom pom globes that hang from the ceiling and tissue letters that mark the monogram of the new baby propped up on tables.

Red and Pink Heart garland

Flowers are absolutely essential for a Valentine’s Day baby shower, especially roses, peonies and baby’s breath make for the perfect arrangements. Set your bouquets in places like tables to pose as centerpieces or serving tables as accent pieces. Having a Valentine’s themed Diaper cake as centerpiece is another fantastic idea.

You’ll want to take tons of photos to always remember this event, so a DIY photo booth for you and your guests to enjoy is a great way to make this happen. Pick a solid colored wall and hang heart garland vertically across for a simple backdrop and have photo booth props like mustaches, hats, glasses, and a sign of congratulations to the mom-to-be on hand for your guests to play with.

Valentine’s Baby Shower Food


Food is one of the most important aspects of a baby shower, and you can really have fun with the fare in the Valentine’s Day theme. A celebration cake with imagery of hearts and letters expressing joy for the soon-to-be baby is a wonderful idea and can be a magnificent main attraction for the party.

Galentines Candy Table

Equally detail-decorated red and pink rose cupcakes, decorative cookies, and candies presented in sophisticated glass apothecary jars or heart-shaped holders and stands are a must-have. One or two unexpected delights are a great idea to impress your guests, such as color-layered pudding parfaits in champagne glasses or heart-shaped, sugar coated cake pops sprinkled with mini hearts.

For savory dishes, finger foods are a great way to go, and a Mom-osa bar with cute heart labels would look wonderful. Matching forks, cups, plates, and napkins tie your entire food presentation together.


Valentine’s Baby Shower Games

Here are some game ideas that embrace the Valentine’s Day theme and add a touch of love to the Valentine’s themed baby shower celebration:

Guess the Sweet Candies

Fill baby bottles with red, pink, or heart-shaped candies. Guests have to guess the number of candies inside. The person with the closest guess wins a prize.

Love Songs Trivia

Create a playlist of classic and popular love songs. Play short snippets of each song and have guests guess the title and artist. Award points for correct answers, and the person with the most points wins.

Cupid’s Arrow Toss

Set up a game where guests toss Cupid’s arrows (decorative arrows or cutouts) into heart-shaped targets. Assign different point values to each target, and the person with the highest score wins.

Love Advice Cards

Provide guests with cards to write down their best love and parenting advice for the mom-to-be. Collect the cards in a decorative box for her to read later.

Diaper Love Notes

Set up a station with plain diapers and fabric markers. Ask guests to write funny or encouraging messages on the diapers for the parents-to-be to discover during late-night diaper changes.

Valentine’s Day Charades

Create a list of baby or love-related phrases for a Valentine’s Day-themed game of charades. Guests act out the phrases, and others guess.

Heartfelt Wishes Tree

Set up a tree with heart-shaped tags and ask guests to write heartfelt wishes for the baby and parents. Hang the wishes on the tree for a beautiful keepsake.

Love Letters to Baby

Provide guests with stationery to write love letters or advice to the baby. Collect the letters in a decorative box for the parents-to-be to read later.

Valentine’s Day Photo Booth

Create a photo booth area with Valentine’s Day-themed props like heart glasses, Cupid’s bows, and love-themed signs. Guests can take memorable photos to commemorate the day.
