My sister, Bailey, had her baby shower this weekend and I had the best time helping her get ready for it! She’s having a little boy, so we went all in on the blue. Read on for some baby shower ideas, inspiration and a breakdown of everything we did!

we rented out mints & honey in burlingame, ca for the shower and it was so cute! the space is so beautifully decorated that we really didn’t need to supplement with too many decorations ourselves.
we used balloon boss for the backdrop, it came out so cute!!
ultimate baby shower checklist
there’s a ton to do when it comes to hosting a baby shower! But, for starters, it’s recommended to have the shower 1-2 months out from your due date, that will give you enough time to organize and settle in with all your new gifts while still being comfortable enough to celebrate!
I made a detailed list for you to pin to save for when you need it!
we got the invites from minted & they are too cute! We went with the elephant garden theme. We got the invites, the thank you cards, the stickers and the thank you gift tags!
the sign + extras
my mom got this cute elephant sign from etsy to match the theme + these cute pens for games! We also booked vendors for balloon arches, cake pops and cookies!
nana’s sweets & treats made us the most beautiful & delicious cake pops!
we decorated the tables with little bells, bows, pens for the games and elephant ears! we also grabbed some blue champagne flutes for mimosas!
we all know how showers are so make sure you plan for some fun games! we printed out all the games on cardstock!
pin this for some more ideas & here are a ton more fun ideas!
guess the baby food!
guess the sweet mess!
another fun thing people like to do at baby showers is get some advice or inspiration from their family and friends to look back on as they raise their child, or for the baby to read when they get older. here are some ideas of what you can ask for from your guests! Just be sure to supply them with note cards or a notebook for them to write it down!
