Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, is one of the most popular themes when it comes to nurseries and baby showers.  I can’t count the number of shows featuring nurseries that have the nursery rhyme written on the wall and a hundred little stars painted on the walls and ceiling.

Having a Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star shower can bring this timeless nursery rhyme into the festivities and provide an opportunity to furnish baby’s room in a Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star theme.


Decorations

Of course you are going to have stars to reflect the theme but you don’t need to have only stars.  Start by draping some dark blue sheer fabric on the ceiling to create a night sky.  Insert white Christmas lights in the fabric to create stars and subdue the lighting in the room for the greatest effect.  Next, have some candles lit to continue the subdued lighting theme throughout the room.

Have some balloons and streamers that have stars on them and find some star confetti to spread on the floor and on tables.

Lastly, you can ask guests to bring baby photos of themselves and paperclip them to cut out stars to place on a wall or hang from the sides of tables and the ceiling.  The stars can be used later for a game and photographs can go back to guests when it is time for them to leave.

Invitations

There are hundreds of star themed baby invitations out there so you really have a lot of choice for your decision.  One suggestion I would make is to have the card printed in a deep blue for the night sky and have silver or gold embossed stars decorating the sky.  Add the words, “Wishing upon a Twinkling Star, has brought an angel into our waiting arms.” “You’re invited to a Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star Baby Shower!” can be printed on the inside, which could be printed on white cardstock and printed in the same blue that covers the front of the card.

Gifts, Favors, and Prizes

Since we are going with a twinkle, twinkle little star theme, most of the gifts will represent this theme.  You can find bedding, furniture, clothing and just about anything else that is baby related that has stars or a twinkle, twinkle theme on it.  The gifts can be just about anything for a new mom but a thoughtful gift would be to purchase a nice rendition of the nursery rhyme in picture book form and sign the front inside cover with happy wishes. You might allocate a spot on the back inside cover for guests to write their well wishes and advice.

The perfect gift for guests would be scented candles or possibly giving a small keepsake that has a star on it.  There are many offered at gift stores and you can easily find what you are looking for.

Prizes for the games can include sparkling star-shaped jewellery, candles, candleholders and star shaped chocolates.

Food

One of the first things that you should do in regards to food is arrange it on star shaped platters and provide plates and cups that have stars on them.  Sprinkle the confetti around the table to bring out your theme and have star shaped ice cubes.

For desserts, I would go with star shaped sugar cookies, a star shaped cake and possibly a star shaped diet jello mold.  Lots of fun and you can add an assortment of colors to the table.

Games

Since you have the star photographs already arranged around the room, you can adapt the game to a face only a Mother Could Love contributed by Charlotte Tucker, and simply number the stars that are around the room and have guests figure out who goes with what baby picture. If you want to spice it up you could make it a scavenger hunt as well where people have to look for the picture and put the number of the picture beside the guest’s name.  The person with the most correct answers wins.
