Warmer weather is fast approaching, which means that spring and eventually summer will be here. That time of the year is very popular for baby showers and parties, and we're all about it! If you're planning a baby shower during these seasons or know someone who is, picking a party theme can seem overwhelming- there are so many different styles or ideas for you to choose from. Not sure where to start or looking for some party planning help? We've got three different themes that will think you'll love for the nicer weather months, along with matching invitations to help you plan an unforgettable baby shower. Take a peek below to see our list.
Little Cutie Fruit Inspired
With a little sweetie or cutie on the way, what's a cuter theme than brightly colored fruits? This is a fun one, especially for summer months when watermelon, blueberries and cherries are more likely to be in season and can be served fresh as appetizers for guests. Fruit punch inspired cocktails (or mocktails for the mama to be), servings of fruit slices and berry inspired cakes make for great party additions. Find some fun decorations with fruit prints or designs to make it a party to remember.
Watermelon Inspired Invitation Suite
A watermelon themed baby shower invitation suite is a great way to invite everyone to your fruit inspired baby shower. This DIY custom template features a design of watercolor watermelon and white florals with a handwritten script font. Set of stationery comes as a three piece suite, with an invitation measured at 5x7", a books for baby card, and a diaper raffle card, both measuring in at 5.5x4". Completely customizable, you can edit this template to fit your party needs. Your guests will love receiving this invitation and will be excited to welcome your little sweetie into the world with you.
