Baby Shower checklist for party planning.

Wether you’re planning a huge party or an intimate family affair, don’t get overwhelmed while party planning a baby shower. It is meant to be fun after all.

Baby shower’s and party planning have come a long way- thanks mostly to the Internet. You no longer have to rely on what local stores have or ideas you might find in a couple magazines. Now all those incredibly creative people around the world can share their brilliant ideas. An item as small as a straw flag can add a touch of whimsy to any event. Even themes have evolved from the traditional stork carrying a baby in a blue blanket to mustaches. Here are a few baby showers, themes, and party decor items I love.

Baby Shower Themes

Here is a darling baby shower for parents waiting to be surprised with a boy or girl on their delivery day- Bows and Mustaches themed.

An all out festive interactive vintage circus themed baby shower. So many fun events and unique details. Even if you’re not planning something this big you can always make your own version.

I have a sweet spot for this children’s book themed baby shower since I’ve always been a bit of a book worm. Matilda by Roald Dahl is still one of my all time favorite books – but I’m off topic now. I specially love the creative invitations made to look like the vintage checkout paper that was kept in library books.

Baby Shower Invitations

Modern and sweet digital invitation for the earth friendly mom who emails invites.

Ahoy Baby Boy Invites are super cute and perfect for ocean / water themed showers.

Peter Rabbit party invitations and there is even a darling party cupcake kit!

Baby Shower Decorations

For the animal theme this spinning carousel by Animal Parade is gorgeous.

Happy Little Farm Centerpiece (shockingly I’m partial to the farm animals theme).


Remember this baby shower checklist  is just a guide and there are no party rules set in stone. You can be as traditional or as unique as you want. Just keep in mind if you’re throwing the baby shower for someone else make sure you know how involved they’d like to be in the decision making.

    Out of all the baby shower lists I have seen this is the best one but I am unable to print it. I don’t know why it won’t let me print it.

    • Hi Jessica, I’m so sorry you’re having a problem. WP changed it’s links/images and it seems a bit different. But if you click the “a printable version” in the first paragraph it should open the printable version in a pop-up in the center. Then click the zoom in icon in the top right and either drag the full image to your desktop to print or depending on your browser you can print from there.

      Please let me know if you continue having trouble via email and I’ll email you the printable file version.
