Two different BABY SHOWER IDEAS with a different set up and games to play, but there are traditions you keep like finger sandwiches, the baby shower cake. Not to forget a refreshing drink and tea or coffee.
This first idea is fresh, modern and minimalist. You can't go wrong keeping it simple and adding unique touches like the heart shape watermelon, homemade cake and cupcakes. The girls who organised this baby shower did a wonderful job. The friend who baked a vanilla and raspberry cake did an amazing job (anyone who bakes cakes knows how tricky it can be) and it was delicious, finishing off with a hot coffee or tea!
The games played were 'guess how many mini marshmallows are in the big baby bottle' & a race to think of girls names from A to Z & lastly 'who could guess the cheapest to expensive baby list'.
The day finished off wonderfully and everyone enjoyed themselves, the ones who stayed on to help clean had extra cake and cupcakes, well at least I did!
Congrats to my sister-in-law who is due late January, cannot wait to meet your little princess.
Second baby shower is a nesting bird vintage theme. Tables filled with vintage inspired decoration, metallic bird cage and paper butterflies.
The kitchen was filled with old vintage cups, ready for tea to be poured in for a cuppa with a scone. The butterflies were an idea from grand-nana who passed away since, always crafting away.
Home-made scones, cookies, butterfly cupcakes and finger sandwiches filled the table.
The courtyard was decorated with a mural made painted on packing paper, inspired by Australian artist Thea Proctor. The lanterns are much easier to ensemble and hung with fishing wire.

The two bird cages were bought on eBay and filled with fresh flowers to make it stand out.
The baby shower pram cake was baked by a family member.
Games played included 'pin the sperm to the egg' & race to unscramble words & who can guess the size of the mother's belly. The ONLY time a woman would allow this!

In the kitchen ready to be served, one sugar or two?
Beautiful vintage teacups make any guest feel special.
And lastly, thank you gifts. These gorgeous pram boxes and mini babies were bought separately on eBay. I have seen the mini babies in party shops.
So there you have it. Two very different baby showers, one from a modern mum and the other who loves old style vintage. Hope you got something out of this and love to know your baby shower party memories- what was a stand out you remember?
