Rubber Ducky Baby Shower Ideas

Quack-quack. The little rubber ducky has long been a popular theme for baby showers, for lots of reasons: it’s gender-neutral, so they can be used even if mom-and-dad-to-be don’t know the baby’s gender; rubber ducky decorations are easy to find; and, most importantly, ducks are cute! To get you inspired, we are sharing our favorite rubber ducky baby shower ideas from baby shower invitations to baby shower decorations to baby shower food ideas.

The invitation is always the best way to establish your party theme for guests. Pear Tree has lots of cute baby shower invitations, but this Baby Duck Baby Shower Invitation takes the cake. Guests will love the unique cut out of the duck and will instantly get excited to celebrate the coming baby!

Little Critters Baby Shower Ideas

Baby shower ideas

My favorite thing about a party is planning it, so I had a lot of fun coming up with some baby shower ideas to share. As always, I started with the invite. I knew right away I wanted to base the party off of Pear Tree’s Little Critters baby shower invitation. Since the invite was rather simple with the colors, I decided to keep the party simple as well. White, gold and little critters were my theme! This invitation is great because you can choose from over 70 colors if you want something a little more colorful.

I have always wanted to create a “donut tower” so I decided to make this baby shower a brunch. It was filled with powdered sugar donuts, Rice Krispy treats, build your own fruit pizzas, mimosas (non-alcoholic), and adorable critters. I used Pear Tree’s Little Critter Table Décor to scatter across the table and attached them to skewers for a topper on the donut tower. We also worked with Build a Balloon, who created adorable custom fringed balloons for our party. Three foot balloons are definitely a must have!

5 Gender Reveal Ideas

Gender reveal ideas
Gender reveals are a fun new trend for moms- and dads-to-be. There are lots of great ways to get your loved ones in on the big surprise and let them know if you will be welcoming a girl or a boy. We wanted to share our top 5 gender reveal ideas to get your creative mind inspired. We know there are many more out there, but this list should get you started.

1. Balloon Popping. For this idea, fill dark-colored balloons with pink or blue confetti and inflate to medium size. You can give each person at the gender reveal party their own balloon to pop or the soon-to-be mom and dad can pop it in front of guests. If you choose to not have a party, but want to share on Facebook and Instagram, take photos of the balloon before it’s popped and then an action shot of popping it. This is such a fun idea – friends and family will love liking it!

2. Pink & Blue Dips. This gender reveal party idea will get your guests interacting and guessing the gender. Simply set out marshmallows, pink & blue frosting and pink & blue striped straws for guests to dip their marshmallow in the color they think is the gender of your baby! At the end of the party, when all the guesses are in, mom-to-be can hold the straws revealing the correct gender.

What’s a Sip & See? The latest in baby shower ideas!

What’s a Sip & See, you ask? It’s a party that the new parents host after the baby is born to introduce him or her to all their friends. Unlike a traditional baby shower, gifts and games are not the main attraction at a Sip & See — instead, it’s all about the baby!

Advantages to a Sip & See
The biggest advantage to a Sip & See is that everyone gets to meet the new baby. But there are plenty of other reasons that you, as new parents, might find this an attractive baby shower idea. At a Sip & See, you get to make all the decisions. You can decide what to serve, whom to invite, when to have it, and whether or not there will be any embarrassing shower games. And you can avoid the awkward, one-by-one opening of gifts that can so easily drag down a baby shower.
