One of the most amazing times of a woman’s life is when she’s expecting a baby. Every day brings you one step closer to holding your little bundle of joy in your arms. There are many changes your body goes through in preparation for that day…and frankly, it can be a bit overwhelming at times.
Let’s be honest, being pregnant isn’t all rainbows and lollipops. There’s morning sickness, aches & pains, and weight gain… not to mention the stress of realizing you will now be responsible for another human being! Right?!
It’s normal to feel stressed out and tired, but one thing you shouldn’t stress over is your baby shower! I’m going to give you a few ideas, and hopefully they will inspire you and help relieve a bit of your anxiety. Here’s how to throw an awesome baby shower!
PICK A THEME!
I recently attended a fellow blogger’s baby shower. Elba of Live Colorful, chose a Circus theme and it was the cutest shower ever!
Color! Look at all those bright colors, they just pop! The colors really set the tone for the party, I walked in knowing this was going to be tons of fun. Vibrant color gave this baby shower LIFE!
The decorations were simple, they made sense, and they were appealing to the eye. You don’t need a lot of extra… stuff! Keep it simple, you don’t want your decor to look too busy.
I remember being invited to a shower many years ago that didn’t serve any food or drink. Did I mention the shower took place right at lunch time?! We kept waiting to be offered something, anything, to snack on…but nothing. It made for a very long afternoon.
You don’t have to provide a 5 course meal for your guests, but a little something to nibble on will be most appreciated. Elba’s shower was on point, she served sandwiches, empanadas, fruit, cheese & crackers and a fabulous orange juice punch! (Note the chips in the popcorn bags, perfect for her Circus themed shower!)

It’s not a party without games, am I right?! I was introduced to a new baby shower game at Elba’s party & I’m sharing it with all of you. Maybe you’ve played it before. See that Huggies Little Snuggler Diaper? There were 5 of those on the table. They had each been filled with a candy from the board, some had more than 1 candy in them. The diaper was heated in the microwave, the candy melted, and we had to figure out which candy was in each diaper. Talk about a fun game, everyone really got into it & you could see their competitive spirits emerge.
Now would be a great time to tell y’all about Huggies Little Snuggler Diapers:
- New GentleAbsorb* liner to provide a cushiony layer of protection with hundreds of tiny absorbent pillows to help draw mess away from your baby’s delicate newborn skin.
- Cottony-soft inside and out to help keep your baby comfy.

- Umbilical cord cut-out to help protect sensitive belly buttons (newborn only).

Don’t forget the wipes, Huggies Natural Care Wipes are just what you need for delicate skin:
