Colorful Baby Shower

Print Email

Description: Decorate and base the shower on a favorite color, or if you can't make up your mind, have a crayon box party. This shower idea can be a perfect theme for baby boys or baby girls by basing the colors on the gender of the baby. Deviate from the usual blue, pink and yellow by using more jewel tones such as purple and gold or lush colors like moss green and rose.

Decorations: If you choose to do multiple colors, decorate the place with lots of colorful streamers, balloons, and Crayola crayon cut-outs. Have coloring books on tables on one end, cookie or cupcake decorating on another end, and various white onesies on another where your guests can decorate them for the new baby.

Refreshments: Make your food fit in with them color scheme as well, by having a candy buffet with jelly beans, m&ms, skittles, and gummy bears, and have different colored juices for guests to mix as they please.

Gifts: Bring colorful gifts for the new baby, or for a second-time mom, bring gifts to her in her favorite color.

Games: Ask your guests to come in bright colors and give each guest a diaper pin. Forbid them from saying the word color, or any color name and whoever says one, will lose their pin. The person with the most pins at the end of the night wins. You can also have your guests create self-portraits of themselves as babies on paper plates. Allow them to get in touch with their inner Picassos or Da Vincis and have a variety of materials available. The more traditional artists will most likely prefer crayons, colored pencils, and water colors, but encourage the more off-beat ones by having lots of different beads, marshmallows, pebbles, sticks, and clay.

Favors: For the shower favors give multi-colored candy in mini candy dispensers, mini gumball machines, or mini suede colored pencil sets to match the colorful theme.
