Nesting Instincts Baby Shower Theme
An adorable baby shower idea is a “Nesting Instincts” theme. Everyone knows that moms-to-be spend several months nesting to prepare for the baby's arrival so the theme fits the occasion perfectly.
One helpful tip for baby shower planning is to make a creative idea board. Idea boards can be used for many reasons but they're especially useful for party planning. The idea is to find images from favorite magazines and put together a collage to use as inspiration. The images can be colors you like, ideas for centerpieces, combinations of prints that work well together. The idea board can also be very helpful when shopping and discussing ideas with vendors.
- Cut out birds from paper, then use a hole punch and some ribbon to create paper birds that can hang on a branch. Instruct each guest to write a wish for baby on a bird upon entering the shower, then hang the birds on a potted tree branch.
- Make adorable cupcakes with toasted coconut in the form of tiny nests. Then add little frosting bluebirds and have them peak out of the coconut. They might just be too cute to eat!
- Decorate with blue and brown birds, nests and eggs. Think Easter minus the pastels. Focus on a simple color scheme such as the robin's egg blue and brown.
- Give the mom-to-be a special gift to help her remember the shower. A bird’s nest pendant is a nice idea.
You may think that a Nesting Instincts baby shower theme is only natural for a spring shower. However, if you make the right adjustments, you can really pull this off any time of year!
