Baby Shower Themes: Princess

Baby girl shower themes can be a lot of fun if you know the mom-to-be is happy to share the news that she is expecting a girl. Hosting a princess baby shower will help make the mom-to-be feel like royalty while celebrating the arrival of her little princess.

Decorations

Tutu Stand and Tutu Jars: If you're hosting a princess baby shower, you'll want decorations to match. Think pink for everything from the napkins to the party favors, and feel free to go over-the-top with everything that sparkles and shines. A tutu stand makes a wonderful centerpiece, and tutu candy jars can help decorate the space or can even be used as party favors. Both are easy to make, and you don’t need many supplies:

  • Tulle fabric (pink and white)

  • An elastic band

  • A hat box

  • Glass jars (to fill with candies or sweets)

  • Scissors

This stand can be assembled in a matter of minutes, and can be used to show off anything from photos of the mom- and dad-to-be to your party snacks. It can even be an elegant base for your princess castle diaper cake (see below for instructions on how to make this). Assembling your stand couldn’t be simpler:

  • First, cut strips of tulle. The strips should be double the height of the hat box.

  • Wrap the elastic band around the top of the box.

  • Loop the tulle strips around the elastic, working your way around the box with alternating colors of pink and white.

That’s it! As for your candy jars, instead of tulle strips, cut various-sized circles of tulle. Once you pop the lid on top of the tulle, the material will be securely in place and will hang under the lid in the shape of a tutu.

Princess Diaper Cake: A princess castle diaper cake is easy to assemble, and it's a practical, yet fun gift for the mom-to-be, who can never have enough diapers! Yours can serve as a chic centerpiece at the party, and the mom-to-be will be grateful for the extra diapers once she brings her little one home.

Food

Chocolate Brownie Cake Pops: What could be more regal than these sparkly magic wands?

Start by baking a tray of brownies. Cut off the crusts on all four sides, and slice the remaining brownies into 1 ½ inch squares. From there, it's just a few simple steps:

  • Lightly grease your hands with vegetable oil to keep them from sticking, and roll each brownie square into a ball.

  • Insert a cake pop stick into each ball.

  • Melt chocolate chips in a mug until smooth, then dip each pop into the chocolate before letting them dry on a sheet of parchment or wax paper.

  • Repeat with white chocolate, then roll each pop in something pink, like edible sprinkles.

  • For individual party favors, wrap each pop in cellophane, and tie with a bow.

Your guests will love these pink and gold baby shower snacks. To tie in with the theme, serve pink-colored punch or cotton candy.

Games

For a princess-themed baby shower, consult with the mom-to-be about whether she’d like some games that inspire your guests’ creativity. You can provide a white baby T-shirt or bodysuit for each guest (along with decoration supplies), and ask each guest to design the front of the outfit for the new baby. Or, invite everyone to design a fabric square to be made into a keepsake quilt for the baby. With either of these ideas, your guests will have an opportunity to provide a handmade memento for the family.
