Throwing a nursery rhyme baby shower is an easy and fun way to celebrate a mom-to-be and her growing family. With hundreds of nursery rhymes available, this theme is easy to pull off and is easily customized for the specific guest of honor by using her favorite childhood rhymes. If you're looking to throw a unique shower filled with rhymes and fun, here are some tips that can help get it done.
Invitations. The invitations sent out for a baby shower should always clue the guests into the theme and creating a custom invite can be a fun way to get guests excited about the party that is to come. Try choosing your favorite rhyme that incorporates babies like "Rock a Bye Baby" or "Hush Little Baby". Sending out personalized Hershey Chocolate Bars that have the party details written on their wrappers instead of paper invitations is a sweet way to change up the normal invitation process.
Decorations. Decorating for a nursery rhyme party can be very fun with so many different riddles inspiring an eclectic and baby-friendly atmosphere. Hanging personalized baby shower poem cards around the room with different rhymes listed is a fun way to show each guest a wide variety of stories. These cards can also double as party favors at the end of the event as they contain plantable seeds for a garden of fun. Give guests an opportunity to create their own baby-friendly rhymes, which can be shared with the party, and keep everyone entertained using baby shower word game papers that ask individuals to descramble the names of popular nursery rhymes.
Food. Even the food at your special event can be incorporated into the nursery rhyme theme! Place a platter of deviled eggs alongside the famous "Humpty Dumpty" poem for an unexpected treat. Pigs in a blanket can be served to mimic the "Three Little Piggies" tale that is so dearly loved. Dessert time can be extremely creative with an ice cream bar and bowls following the "I scream, You scream" tale and cupcakes marked with a 'B' paying homage to "Patty Cake".
Favors. Send guests home with a little piece of the party by creating "A Tisket, A Tasket" baskets filled with nursery rhyme books and different treats that can be enjoyed, like "Bzz, the Bumble Bee," customized cookies and custom boxed baby shower truffles!
