Baby shower decorations

You won’t have any trouble finding, bats, hockey pucks, footballs and more. Balloons, pendent banners, and cake toppers can be found online, in party stores, or made by you!

Centerpieces, favors, and table ware are certainly enough to give this party what it needs. Mix and match your decorating ideas, or buy a ready made baby shower deluxe kit.

We love this adorable idea from a previous baby shower sports theme: Purchase a new tiny mitt/baseball glove ( you can give it as a new baby gift after the shower). Use wooden block letters to spell, baby’s name, mommy’s name or just the word baby. Nest the blocks inside the mitt with the letters facing out.  It’s a simple and cute way to make your own center piece.

For a Home Run centerpiece, use diaper cakes, cupcakes, baby shower cakes, and newborn gift baskets 

For “daddys little girl” custom order, sports hair clips. The perfect solution for baby-fine hair!

One of the simplest baby shower cakes you can make for a little slugger is, a baseball cake. Use a 9 inch round pan to bake your cake. Once it’s cooled decorate it with, white frosting or fondant. Use red piping or string licorice for the threads of the ball.

Baby shower sports theme games

You could also play spots trivia, or other group games. If you have a large chalkboard, use it to keep score of each team. Scratch cards, and ball tosses are another way to have fun with a sports theme.  If you host your shower outside, you can play games with water balloons, basket ball hoops, footballs, or whatever else comes to mind. Co-ed parties are also a great time for a game of volley ball, horse shoes, skeeter ball, or bad-mitten. Just make sure mom-to-be, sits on the sidelines for any games that are strenuos!

My water broke is a fun  game, especially for co-ed baby showers.

Here is what you’ll need:

  • One package of water balloons.
  • One-two packages of tiny baby favors.
  • Baby oil
  • Two large plastic tubs. 

Here’s how to play:

Fill 24 water balloons with water, put a plastic baby favor in each balloon.

Place balloons inside a small garbage. Drizzle a very small amount of baby oil over the balloons (just enough to coat them).

Divide guests into two teams. Each member of the team should try to get their balloon into the target(plastic tub) by tossing it as far as they can.

The team with the most broken balloons, and plastic babies in the tub- wins.

*Adjust supplies according the number of guests expected to play the game.

Baby shower sports theme menu

You can plan a back-yard BBQ, a cook-out in a park, or a tail-gating menu right at home.  Think of some of the fun apps and foods that are served at Super-bowl parties. You can serve, hot or cold salads, sandwiches, veggie, and fruit platters. This baby shower theme is the right venue for a pizza party too.

If the shower is for a boy, blue punch, or other blue refreshments can be served. Gatorade, Kool-aide mixes, and food coloring are easy ways to do this.

Pink lemonade, pink punch, and any other pink drinks are great for baby girl parties.

As with any other baby shower theme, it’s acceptable to serve alcoholic beverages, just don’t serve too much to yourself during the party.  What you do when the shower is over, is totally up to you!
