Quirky brights baby shower ideas
Bright colours are always a great way to put your guests and the mom-to-be in a mood to have fun and relax at the same time. Perfect if you've got a little princess on the way! 

The Theme

  • Combine orange and pink, add light salmon, purple and a splash of turqoise and green, and you have the trendiest party on the block.
  • Quirky posters and prints are very on trend at the moment and an ideal fit for this look.
  • Choose sweets like jelly beans and cookies to add the fun. 
  • Give your guests striped paper bags to scoop their sweets into.

The Recipe

Berry Delicious:

  • Spruce up a berry drink with fresh berries and fruit.
  • Buy a sparkling mixed berry drink or juice and pour into a large jug.
  • Now add lots of ice, fresh blueberries, gooseberries, strawberries and youngberries and cut a pineapple to decorate the jug.
  • Struggling to find fresh berries? Use frozen ones as substitutes.

The Activity

Time capsule:

  • Ask guests to bring items that relate to the year, like the newspaper of the day, a best selling CD or money.
  • These items will be put away and given to the child on their 21st birthday.

DIY Decorations

Babygro bunting:

  • Fold pieces of A3 paper concertina-style.
  • Draw the outline of a babygro on the outside of the paper.
  • Cut it and fold open.
  • Paint a heart in the middle of each using colours that match your decor. 

Colourful canvas board:

  • Use the same colours used for the babygro bunting and paint rough stripes on a canvas.
  • Use it as a serving platter for mini pies and milk tarts.
