A rainbow baby is cause for a very special celebration. For any readers who may not know, a rainbow baby is one born after the loss of a baby due to miscarriage or natural causes after birth. The rainbow symbolizes hope after tragedy and it is the subject of today’s inspiration board.

Featured invitation: Rainbow Celebration Baby Shower Invitation

Up First: Invite

Introduce this very special celebration with an equally special baby shower invitation. We started this inspiration board with a rainbow themed baby shower invite. These invites feature the shimmer and shine of real foil—a unique design element that takes these invites to a new level of bright and beautiful.

This beautiful design has all the color you want for a rainbow baby shower plus some customization options to make it unique.

Next: Decorations

Bright and bold is perfect for a rainbow baby shower. We love the idea of choosing a show-stopping display somewhere at the shower. We’ve gathered a few ideas here like the rainbow of balloons acting as the table centerpiece or the balloon rainbow in the lower right corner that’s perfect for some photo ops with family and friends.

And, Of Course: Dessert

The rainbow sugar cookies shown here with bibs and onesie are oh-so-charming! The dessert is a great place to tie in this theme, especially if you’re planning a more subtle approach the rainbow baby shower. Any type of cake or size of cake can easily be decorated with a rainbow design, and if you’re at all crafty as a baker, you can probably handle making it yourself.

A Special Note – We suggest tying in the meaning of “rainbow baby” because not everyone is going to know. The onesie shown here offers a beautiful saying, which is a great start to the conversation.
