Beach Lover’s Baby Shower Theme

beach baby shower invitationsTwo beachcombers become three! Welcome the baby-on-the-way to the family with a beach-style baby shower! Whether you can host the shower on fine white sand or not, it is easy to make use of a beach theme for the shower. Try these ideas…

Set the scene with tropical sunshine by sending a beach theme baby shower invitation. Invite your guests to attend in beach-wear and flip flops! Greet them at the door with an “Aloha,” a floral lei or clip-on bloom and steel drum or ukulele music playing. If your guests are feeling playful, hand them a name tag as they enter with a fitting “title” added to it for conversation during the party.

  • Hammock Dweller
  • Bartender
  • Spa Massage Artist
  • Beach Bum
  • Coconut Artist

Have a tropical theme party favor at each table setting… like a small bag of chocolate covered coffee beans or fruit candies tied with a bright bow, or perhaps a sea shell bracelet.

Choose tropical flavors for your menu! It could include:

  • Fruit punch or a selection of juices
  • Frozen beverages with those little paper umbrellas
  • Fruit ka-bobs with mango, grapes, kiwi and fresh pineapple
  • Green salad sprinkled with nuts, dried fruit and a sweet-and-sour dressing
  • Shredded barbecue pork sandwiches
  • Pineapple upside down cake

Choose two or three colors as your palette and limit yourself to just those for a coordinated look. Tropical combinations can include any colors, just bright versions of them. If the mom-to-be has a nursery color combination, you could match that for the shower, or add tropical splash to classic boy and girl colors. Maybe turquoise and pink for a baby girl, or aqua, yellow and orange for a baby boy.

Your shower decorations don’t have to be complicated, just colorful! Make centerpieces out of small tropical plants. Add color by buying some cut flowers in your color scheme the day of the party. Trim short and poke flowers into the pots. Accent the tables with small objects such as a pair of baby flip flops, scattered sea shells, and toy buckets of sand with shovels.



Planning A Beach Bridal Shower

Love the feel of warm, white sand between your toes? If the bride and groom-to-be are beach fans, too, maybe a beach bridal shower for couples (or traditional bridal shower) is the way to go. Sunwashed colors, relaxing atmosphere and a cool beverage.

Let us help you with some beach bridal shower ideas. Begin with invitations for a beach bridal shower to set the tone for your party. Then choose beach and seashell decor to pull the theme through the event itself. Finally, serve your favorite tropical paradise food and colorful beach resort beverages. Perhaps your guest would be inspired to wear their beach attire or favorite hawaiian shirt? You can encourage this with a simple “tropical attire” or “casual beach attire” as the last line of your invitation.

Shell-theme tableware is not easy to find on the internet, but you will find tropical-theme or Hawaiian luau paper and plastic ware at most party supply stores. All you really need is lots of bright color… mixed tropical hues of red, cyan blue, orange, green. Going for authentic? Try coconut shell mugs!

If you are looking for some fun party games, you could use the “Survivor” party idea, breaking your guests into teams with matching bandanas and lei’s.
