It’s the perfect theme for pretty pastels and delicate flowers and works equally well with subtle colors or bolder colors.

However, I like to choose the tableware first and then base the color scheme around it.

If you have (or can borrow) any vintage cups, saucers and plates, these would be perfect! A Tea Party Baby Shower needs the best tableware you can get, so beg, steal, and borrow! Also, charity shops can be a good place to pick up some bargain plates. And if they don’t match, no problem! It just means you get better designs!

Warm scones, jam, and cream are a must after sandwiches. Homemade scones are holy or buy at the store and heat them in the oven before you serve.

For the cake, the Victoria Sponge cake is a great choice. This gorgeous recipe is for the most delicious cake that is super simple to make.

Baby Shower Games

What’s in the Basket?… For this easy DIY shower game, first find a wicker basket with a lid or use a cloth to cover the top. Next, fill the basket with 8 to 10 baby goodies (think bottle, onesie, diaper cream, hairbrush) and then pass the basket around. Visitors should then try to identify as many items inside as possible by just touching, (not looking) and writing them down. Once everyone has had a chance, compare the lists to see who identified the most correctly. Bonus: When the game is over, Mama will leave with all the goodies.

How big is Mommy’s belly?… Test your guests’ guessing skills with this fun guessing game. Using string, ribbon, or even toilet paper, have each shower guest focus on the circumference of the expectant mother’s baby bump and cut a piece of string (or ribbon or toilet paper) that wraps around her belly. Then, whoever gets the closest wins.
