A couple of months ago I held this teddy bear baby shower for a friend who was expecting a little boy. Her request was to have a blue and lemon themed dessert table and the rest was left up to me.
I loved every minute of planning this party and I am super excited to share this with you today.
We wanted to keep the invitations quite simple and “baby sweet”, so we decided upon pastel blue and lemon stripe with a classic teddy bear print.
The invitations set the scene for the party and all the decorations were based around this.
Teddy Bear Baby Shower Party Decoration
The aim for the party decor was to be warm and inviting, but also calming and relaxing. The blue and lemon worked beautifully together and teamed with white was perfect for the event.
The decorations were easy to organise and looked beautiful once set up. To provide the vibrancy of colour, a row of tissue paper pom poms were placed above the dessert table. Pom poms are incredibly easy to make and are great on the budget too.
You can learn how to make them for your own party by following a tutorial here. Miniature tissue paper pom poms were also scattered around the table tops.
All the printable’s used for this party can be found in the Etsy shop. I was thrilled with how the “It’s A Boy” teddy bear baby shower banner turned out and once all put together, gave a stunning backdrop to the dessert table. The banner was hung using string and mini pegs.
A welcome sign sat on the dessert table which mimicked the invitation. The same theme was used throughout the food tent labels, cupcake toppers and favor thank you tags.
Even some of the games and activities were used as decoration and they all maintained the same theme.
For an added splash of colour on the dessert table, I placed some bright yellow daisy’s in miniature milk bottles. These looked incredibly vibrant and gave the finishing touch to the table.
Baby Shower Activities
Some of the activities for this party also doubled as party decoration. The ‘wishes for baby’ and’ baby prediction’ cards were used as banners. They were hung up with mini pegs to match the “It’s A Boy” banner, and they looked utterly adorable.
One of the advantages of having them on display was that it reminded the guests to fill them in!
For the jar of joy, guests were asked to write a word of encouragement or something funny, to support the mummy to be when she might be feeling a bit tired or overwhelmed. The jar was also filled with the mummy to be’s favourite chocolate bar for added comfort.
You can’t have a teddy bear baby shower without a teddy…..so I organised for a blue teddy to sit on the dessert table which was for the guests to sign.
Three separate games were played with the guests.
1: Baby scattegories. Guests were asked to think up one baby item from a description given on the scattegory card. Items had to begin with an S and a B (initials of the parents to be). Only unique answers were accepted so guests had to think of different answers to their friends. This added a friendly level of competition!
2: Finish Mummy’s Phrase. This game involved giving the mum to be a list of words prior to the party. She was asked to add the first word that came to her mind when she read the word. For example….”Sleep…deprived”. Guests had to try and guess the exact word that the mummy to be had written down. This was quite funny to hear not only the mummy’s answers, but also answers that people thought she might have said!
3: Memory recall game. This involved providing the guests with plates filled with baby items and allowing them two minutes to remember as many baby items in front of them. They were then given five minutes to try and recall as many items as possible.
Both the Baby Scattegory and Finish Mummy’s Phrase games, are available in the Etsy shop.
Guests were invited to an afternoon dessert and the table was absolutely filled with delicious treats. We kept with the yellow and blue theme even in the food presentation which consisted of chocolate cupcakes, macarons, lemon tarts, lollies, milky way teddy cars and lollies.
The standout feature on the table was the baby bump cake which featured an adorable blue and yellow flower and baby feet on the belly. The cake, cupcakes and macarons were all supplied by A Delightful Bunch and were absolutely mouth watering.
The drinks were kept simple with a fruit punch. It was served in mini milk bottles with matching ribbon and straws.
The party favors were very simple and followed the dessert idea for the party. I made small bags of jelly babies tied with a blue ribbon and a matching thank you tag.
Everyone had a wonderful afternoon and left with extremely full belly’s!
