‘Tis the season to bring the party outside! Planning a baby shower can be tons of fun, and moving the party outdoors adds an extra element of excitement. From scouting the perfect location to selecting the sweetest snacks, here are some must haves for your outdoor baby shower!
The Perfect Location: The arrival of every baby needs to be celebrated, and what better way to beat the indoor blues (or pinks!) than by planning a baby shower picnic! Set up a party in the park or throw a shower in the sand! Your guests will enjoy having fun in the natural surroundings.
A Signature Drink: Serve up a signature cocktail (or mocktail) to leave all of your partygoers feeling refreshed! If the shower is for a boy, this blue punch recipe is a great way to keep things festive. And if you’re awaiting the arrival of a baby girl, pink champagne or this Lucky-Duck Punch is the cutest way to toast the mama-to-be.
Sandwiches, Snacks & Desserts, Oh My: It’s easy to get creative when choosing delicious food options for your shower, but keep in mind that it’s best to stay simple when planning a picnic. Colorful fruit platters, finger sandwiches and sweet & salty snacks appeal to almost everyone’s palette. Opting for cupcakes instead of a cake, makes serving up a sweet treat, much simpler.
Decor: Utilize your beautiful surroundings when decorating for an outdoor shower. Hang tissue pom poms on trees, tie colorful balloons to picnic tables or scatter colorful flowers in mason jars throughout! Once your guests arrive, the baby presents will add a pop of color to the party as well!
Games: No baby shower would be complete without playing some games! Now that you have all of your friends and family in one place it’s time to get your game on! You can make a game out of opening the gifts, or try these fun baby shower games to get everyone involved.
