Baby Girl - Pink Theme
Everything’s Coming Up Pink:
Now I’m sure that most people could do a pink themed baby shower with their eyes closed. Generally, we have all been to a shower when a girl is expected, and we have celebrated under a ceiling filled with pink balloons, pink streamers and the happy words exclaiming “It’s a girl!”
Since we already know some of the basics of throwing a color and gender specific baby shower, let’s look at a few of the finer details involved in creating a beautiful baby shower just right for the little girl on her way and the woman who she will call Mom.
For a pink shower, the decorating can be pretty simple and can be done in a cost effective way - pink balloons, pink streamers and a pink table cloth can be all you need in the way of decorations. There are some things to consider when it comes to decorating a pink shower.

Invitations can be pretty basic when it comes to a pink or girl themed baby shower. You can do simple white invitations with pink lettering or have ones with an image on them. One of my personal favourites when it comes to a girl baby shower is to have the invitations done in pink and vellum. You can order these from many card companies or you can make them yourself.
If you want guests to add to the pink theme, either through gifts, wrapping paper, or in the clothes they wear, just list that on the invitation. Lastly, make sure that you include information for your guests about gift registries or add a few ideas for “pink gifts” for a baby shower.

Let’s look at gifts for the expectant mom first. If you are gifting in pink, there is so much that you can do. You have clothes that can be found in varying shades of pink including sleepers, crib shirts, dresses, and countless other outfits. If you decide against clothes and want to have something more concrete but not too large, purchase bedding, receiving blankets, hooded towels and clothes in pink. Rattles, soothers and bottles can also be found in pink. If you decide on larger items, you can find cribs that are pink or pink/white, chairs that have hints of pink or you could purchase pink lamps for the nursery. Many stores also offer different colored gift cards, so ask if they have one in pink and put it in a nice pink envelope.
For your guests, wrap up pink candles, pink containers of bubbles, or maybe even give little bouquets of pink flowers for the shower gift. You could also have vintage dolls for game prizes (the ones with lots of ruffles and pink) and if you are okay with giving out alcohol you could have mini bottles of pink champagne or blush wine wrapped in a pink gift bag or do your own and custom make your pink labels with the date of the shower and the new baby girl that you are toasting.
Mmmm, pink food, and don’t feel like you need to go around with a large bottle of pink food dye to make it happen. Finger foods are great for a baby girl shower since it makes it feel more feminine if people are enjoying dainty sandwiches and small desserts.
A great sandwich to have is Fancy Sandwiches in pink, check out our recipe section to find out how to make them. Also have fruits that are pink and red in color and make or purchase a pink fruit dip.
Desserts are always nice and there are many that are pink including Tiramisu and even some cheesecakes.
If you feel limited with having pink food, use containers that are pink or place the desserts in the middle of pink cupcake foils.

There are not many pink specific baby shower games, but you can always adapt the ones we have to reflect a pink theme. Take a simple game like Candy in a Bottle and use pink items. The bottle should be clear but the lid can be pink and so can guess the candy in the bottle. Games that require paper and pencils can use pink paper and pink pencil crayons or pink pencils (there are tons of those around Valentine’s Day so stock up when you see them on sale just after the holiday passes). Also, make the prizes pink! Pink hand lotions, pink hair accessories, and pink sunglasses can be fun little prizes to win.
