Choosing a Baby Shower Theme

Planning baby shower themes is my favorite part of planning a shower. There are so many different themes to choose from and a huge variety of available decorations.

If the parents know whether the baby is a boy or girl makes it really simple to select a theme. Even it if they don't know the baby's gender, there are plenty of themes to choose from besides the old standard of blue or pink.

Nursery colors make a great theme for a baby shower. Guests can bring color coordianted gifts, invitations and decorations can be choosen based on the nursery colors, and even the cake can be designed to match. Another great idea is a seasons theme. A beach baby shower for summer is a fun theme idea. You can decorate with pails, shovels, seashells, and neutral beach colors. Guests can come dressed in shorts and sandals.

One of my favorites is a frog prince or frog princess theme. You can decorate with little tiara's or crowns, wands, and cute frogs. A frog prince or frog princess diaper cake makes a great table centerpiece, as well as a gift.

The ideas can be endless for baby shower themes. All it takes is a little imagination!

Bath Time Fun for Baby

Bath time with Alexander can be a challenge. He is not an easy child to please, and it takes a lot to impress him. I have tried many different bath toys and games but have had little success. His favorite bath toys are the foam alphabet that sticks to the wall and bath paints.

I just recently found the cutest bath mitt sets. The fun characters make playing in the bath a creative learning experience. My favorite is the frog prince bath mitt. He is so cute with his little yellow crown and his mischievous expression. We really enjoy making up stories and games with the bath mitt characters. There is also a matching hooded bath towel for each character.
It's easy to make bath time fun with interesting baby bath accessories that not only entertain your baby and toddler but are also developmentally functional as well.
