Fun Baby Shower Ideas

Baby Week would not be complete unless we shared some great baby shower ideas with you! Every mother-to-be looks forward to the day of her shower where instead of feeling fat, tired, and hungry she can enjoy special decor, gifts, and friends. Every hostess wants the day to be a hit, so we have found some great ideas for you to use!

We are big fans of all the projects over at Homemade By Jill but these next two ideas really caught our eye. Jill made this gorgeous diaper cake. This is sure to be a hit at your baby shower and you can click here for a tutorial on how to make this cake yourself.



The next wonderful idea from Jill is these onesie cookies. How adorable are these? Although Jill admits these cookies were a ton of work, she also says that they were such a big hit that she will definitely be making them again. Click here to try your hand at these cuties, which are sure to impress.

If those ideas aren't enough for you, we also found this great video showing how to make the most adorable baby rattle cupcakes from Howdini.com!

And lastly, your baby shower cannot be complete without a great game idea, and we have just the thing! A variation of this game was played at my own baby shower and it was a huge hit. You can't go wrong when every guest gets to take a candy bar home!

Using the ideas below, you put all these candy bars in the center of the room. A person draws the funny pregnancy/childbirth word and has to match it with the candy bar in the center of the room. They get to keep the one they guess!

Conception………..Skor
Bladder problems ………..Fast break
Choosing a name …….Watchamacalit
Breast feeding ……..Milkyway
Obstetrician …….Butterfinger
Engorgement …….Mounds
Bib ………Gobstoppers
Spit up ……Goobers
Epidural ……..Lifesavers
Contractions ………Whoppers
Twins ……Twix
Triplets…….3 Musketeers
Delivery…….PayDay
1st trimester……Rocky Road
Stretch marks……Red Vines
Sitz bath…..Fun Dip
Baby’s giggle……Snickers
Hospital bill……100 Grand
Water breaking…….Starburst
How you feel in your 9th month……..Rolo
Your mental state for 9 months……Airheads
What you want to do all pregnancy long (except first 3 months)……Munch
What you fear you’ll look like during pregnancy…….Chunky
Shower your baby with these……..Kisses
Baby’s nap time…….Take 5
Episiotomy…….Doughnut

We hope you enjoy these ideas as much as we do, and don't forget to leave us a comment to be entered into our giveaway this week. Link to us on your blog or website and you will be entered twice!

I love the idea of the baby diaper cake - it looks fantastic.

I will definitely be adding a link to you on my blog and feel quite inspired to come up with a fleecy baby bootie pattern of my own.
