6 Summer Baby Shower Theme Ideas

'It was All Yellow’ Baby Shower

There is no colour as cheerful as yellow. Associated with happiness and sunshine, yellow provides the perfect colour palette for a summer baby shower. Avoid bright banana shades and opt for paler yellows such as lemon sherbert for a more sophisticated look.

Team yellows with white through striped goody bags or balloons, softening the overall feel. Adorable ducklings and buzzing bees are a great way to introduce fun characters to your baby shower theme: a semi-naked cake decorated with honey bees and geometric honeycomb is the perfect centrepiece to your cake table.

French Romance Baby Shower

Transport yourself to a sophisticated French town, enjoying the sunshine and sampling the local cuisine. Blue and white porcelain will look beautiful at your dinner table teamed with deep blue tapered candles and gold accents.

Serve miniature baguettes with a range of fresh fillings in neat brown paper packages and recreate your very own elegant French patisserie with mille-feuille, soft blue macarons and eclairs.

Peach & Mint Baby Shower

Orange and green would never pop into our heads as a good colour combination, but these two pastel shades work beautifully together and ooze summer.

Scatter peach rose petals across your table for a beautiful scent, teamed with soft minty green foliage in jars for a simple alfresco summer look. Peach and mint honeycomb decorations make the perfect backdrop to your DIY photobooth too!

Let’s Get Tropical Baby Shower

Yes, it’s been done before, but that’s because it just looks so good! Get tropical with banana leaf place settings with your guests’ names written in glittering gold Sharpie pens. Each glass could have a flamingo stirrer and striped pink and white straw to finish the look with a pop of colour.

Serve pina coladas (or tropical mocktails!) on arrival for a fruity treat, and watermelon wedges will make a refreshing snack after dinner and look great on your dessert table!

Botanical Beauty Baby Shower

Clean white and greens take centre stage for this timeless theme and a touch of silver adds a celebratory tone without going overboard.

Decorate your dining table with a runner of scent-filled eucalyptus and gift each of your guests their own miniature succulent or house plant to take home. A sage green and silver balloon arch will wow from the word go placed over your door to welcome guests.

Spanish or Mexican Fiesta Baby Shower

Clashing tones of pink, red and teal mimic the Spanish street fiestas and make a fun eye-catching colourscheme for your baby shower. Traditional papel picado (paper bunting) is the obvious choice for a mexican theme and can be created at home if you’re feeling crafty!

Set up a Sangria station with an alcohol-free version for your guests to help themselves, with red, white and rosé sangria available from Kilner Jars with an array of delicious fruits and pretty stirrers. For lunch, put on a Spanish tapas or Mexican feast your guests!
