Tracks and pretty ideas in pictures for a successful winter baby shower decoration
In recent years, the idea of organizing a baby shower to welcome the new life has become more and more attractive to expectant mothers. Its concept, like the majority of commercial celebrations, comes to us from the United States where the emergence of new life is the perfect opportunity to get together with family and friends and celebrate this precious moment. However, the list of events to mark does not end there. First birthday, first day at school, graduation, bachelorette party, celebration to announce pregnancy or baby's gender… it's impossible to count them on your fingers!
The Baby Shower is usually organized during the eighth month of pregnancy. It can be made by the future mother as a surprise, by a girlfriend, by the future godmother or by the future grandmother. Whatever the case, a cute baby shower decoration is a must have to make the party unforgettable. Pop colors, fresh flowers, flamingos, sprinkles, balloons filled with confetti and fun activities, there is no shortage of ideas for a successful baby shower in the summer. However, we feel a little more limited when we are in the middle of winter and in the midst of a pandemic. The only solution that is needed? Enjoy the fairytale beauty of the current season by hosting a winter themed baby shower!
As you can guess, this is an original and soft theme where shades of white and silver are in the spotlight. With the jaw-dropping decorating ideas popping up on Pinterest and Instagram, turning your living room into a successful winter fairy tale is child's play. In addition, as the end of the year holidays approach, e-shops are full of festive decorations. Mini decorative trees, eucalyptus branches, artificial flowers, light garlands, white tableware, Christmas balls of different sizes and colors… the choice is really vast. You just have to take a little tour and here is your perfectly decorated buffet table.
The 3 must-have items for a top winter prenatal party
We asked our expert party planners to give us some tips on hosting a winter baby shower. According to them, there are three key elements to focus on for a successful baby shower anytime and in any season. And they are:
- the balls
- cake, treats and drinks
- games and activities
Because there is no baby shower without balloons, we choose these with care. They are beautiful, they are universal and they are customizable at will. They can be painted or shaped into several different shapes (number, animal, fruit, etc.). On the table, they indicate the seats of the guests or enhance the length of the piece of furniture like a centerpiece. In two steps and three movements, the balloons transform into a pretty festive bow to install above the buffet. As for colors, we multiply the fairy tones and we choose them in white, gold, silver, pink and pastel blue. Our favorite idea for a top baby shower? Confetti balloons! Trendy, eye-catching, and good on the budget, they're super easy to make. Symbolizing the return to childhood,the transparent balloons and the confetti mixture appeal to young and old alike!
After the balloons, head for the cake and the treats! If you do not want to reveal the sex of the baby, it is better to avoid the cupcakes in blue and pink and instead opt for a monochrome cake in white, beige or pastel yellow. White foods are also closer to winter and easier to accessorize. You can therefore opt for cupcakes, donuts or white meringues for a winter baby shower decoration reminiscent of snow-capped mountains. And to make them more fanciful, you can sprinkle them with silver or gold edible glitter, as desired. Obviously, the dresser dressed in white is not your only option. You can bet on a colorful table enhanced by a few white or silver touches to match the whole winter theme. As for the flagship piece of your buffet table,the cake, prefer it "homemade"!
Whether it's a winter baby shower or not, buttercream cake isn't the only cake that will make mother-to-be and her guests happy. A staple of every successful baby shower, the DIY diaper cake is possibly the most popular and cliché baby shower gift in the world. However, it represents a real help to future parents and never goes unappreciated. Traditional or more original, this fake cake comes in several shapes and sizes. For the winter baby shower, it can be imagined in the form of a snowman, palace, tree or even unicorn. To make it even more practical, we slip in some small birth accessories: bottles, bodysuits, caps, bibs, pacifier, etc.
When it comes to drinks, in winter there is nothing better than a good cup of gourmet hot chocolate to warm your guests. Black or white, Viennese hot chocolate goes deliciously well with the winter baby shower buffet. Other possibilities? Pink lemonade put in baby bottles, hot milk accompanied by white donuts, personalized bottles of champagne, non-alcoholic cocktails served in cute little glasses… you are spoiled for choice. Your only limit is the imagination!
During the baby shower you can, of course, opt for some fun games and activities to keep mom and guests entertained. However, this is not a must rule that you must abide by. The choice of games strongly depends on the desires of the expectant mother. If she doesn't like them, they aren't required. If not, plan a few fun little activities to make the event even more enjoyable and fun. Here are some classic and perfectly ideal proposals for a winter baby shower organized indoors:
- Photo guessing game - each guest should bring a photo of themselves as a baby.
- Baby collar - put a sucking collar on each guest at the start of the baby shower; those who pronounce the word "baby" are obliged to give their necklace to those who have heard it; whoever collects the most necklaces at the end, wins the competition.
- “Touch and find” recognition game - blindfolded, the expectant mother must guess objects, by touch, birth objects (bottle, toys, little shoe, etc.) she has in her hand.
- Fastest drinker - give each candidate a bottle of water or milk; the winner is the one who drinks the fastest.
- Tasting of baby jars - blindfolded, expectant parents and guests must guess the flavor of the jars given to them.
