Some fun theme ideas for baby showers include a onesie painting party shower, a high tea shower, a knit-a-blankie shower, a bun in the oven shower or a home entertainment shower, notes Parents magazine and Real Simple magazine. Choose a baby shower idea that fits the mother and father.
For example, a couple who loves to watch movies and has already had a child would make great candidates for the home entertainment shower. At this shower, guests can bring DVDs and CDs of their favorite movies and music along with popcorn and wine. Another example might be a creative couple who would love the idea of bringing plain onesies to the shower and letting guests paint sweet images on them so that the baby has plenty of onesies to wear. A bun in the oven shower might showcase dozens of homemade oven goodies and a knit-a-blankie shower would ask for each guest to knit a small square that can then be assembled into a larger blanket for the baby at the end of the party.
