Geometry of a Baby Shower

basic shapes and animals for baby shower party theme

Ann Marie the Cat Doll was my inspiration for this baby shower party theme.

Maybe it is because a kitten now lives with us but I fall in love instantly with this creation by Simone Kaplan. Parents will not worry that the baby carry it around since it is machine wash and dry.

The Concept

The lozenges inspired me to celebrate to go with geometric shapes. After all, they are part of the baby steps to learning.

I throw more animals to soften the party décor. I suggest you make a vignette with plush animals. If they are individual gifts, simply attach discretely a gift tag.

Do not be afraid to explore beyond the usual sources. See how the Palm Beach platter fits well within our theme although it was not an obvious choice.

Tea Party

Baby showers usually last 2 to 3 hours. A tea party is the perfect menu if the event occurs in the afternoon.

Use round cutters in various sizes to make tea sandwich. Serve an assortment of herbal teas. Repeat the main colors of the party décor for the teapots.

On top of the traditional tea party cakes and cookies, drop a fun dessert like decorated candy apples. Get inspired by these Hello Kitty Candy Apples to make your own creations.
