Party inspiration: baby showers

Have I told you that I am about to become an aunt? Yay! In just a couple of months I will have a baby nephew, and I can’t wait!

Being an only child, this is my first nephew.
I am beyond excited, which is one of the reasons why I offered to throw my sister in law a baby shower. And the web is full of fabulous inspiration!


My brother in law and his wife have a penchant for straight, modern, minimal decor, so the shower will probably not be as elaborate as the ones above, but they are still lovely, don’t you think? Chances are my baby shower will pale in comparison to these awesome ones, but I will still do my best to make it lovely, comfortable and fun! Check out this pinboard to see what I am thinking of making for the buffet.

Have you ever organized a baby shower? Any tips?

  • I love that you’re throwing them a baby shower! Is it a strange concept for them? When I told a Swiss couple about American baby showers they were intrigued. They’d never heard of any Swiss people having such a party but thought it a great idea!

  • Hey there Elisa,

    those are some fancy baby shower items in the photos. Have thrown a couple of baby showers for my sisters, one thing I can tell you, is to prepare enough food for everyone. As long as there is enough food to go around, all the guest will be content.

    best of luck,


  • Wow! Thanks for a good post! 😉

  • Do Europeans usually throw baby showers? I thought it was just an American thing…

  • Those are some of the most awesome pictures of cakes for a baby shower I think I have ever seen. I’m hungry now. LOL.
