Celebrate the future arrival of a little cub by throwing a teddy bear baby shower. The teddy bear shower theme is perfect for a mom-to-be, whether she is having a little girl or boy. The color brown is neutral, so select additional colors as accents, especially if you know the gender of the baby. For girls incorporate the colors pink and purple. For boys, chose a brown, blue and green color theme. If the gender is unknown, choose either a brown and yellow color theme, or a brown, pink and blue color scheme. Use these colors when planning teddy bear baby shower invitations, decorations, centerpieces and favors.
Teddy bear themed baby shower ideas include:
Invitations: Teddy bear invitations for a baby shower are a perfect way to keep with the theme of the event. Visit Punchbowl to find a teddy bear or color themed digital invitation. On the invitations, include details such as the name of the event, who is being honored at the event, the time, date and location.
Decorations: Mylar bear balloons and streamers make wonderful teddy bear baby shower decorations. Tie balloons on the chair of the mom-to-be and outside on a mailbox or banister to identify the location of the shower. Scatter teddy bear confetti around centerpieces.
Centerpieces: Assembling teddy bear centerpieces for the baby shower will make you feel like a kid in a candy store! Visit your local toy store and select a variety of teddy bear stuffed animals. While at the toy store, search for books such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you See?, Winnie the Pooh, The Teddy Bears’ Picnic and Berenstain Bears books. Purchase diapers, large cellophane bags, small plastic platter dishes and ribbon. Stack the diapers in a circular pattern on the plastic platter and put a teddy bear on top of the diaper stack. Lean a book against the side of the diaper stack. Place everything in a cellophane bag and tie a ribbon around the top. Send the mom-to-be home with all of the centerpieces and she'll have a nice supply of diapers and a collection of books and stuffed animals for her new bundle of joy!
Favors: Teddy bear decorating kits are a perfect favor for a teddy bear themed baby shower. Consider setting 15-20 minutes of time aside to have guests stuff their bears and dress them up during the shower. Award prizes for the most attractive, most creative and most unique bears. Another option for teddy bear shower favors is to make chocolate teddy bear lollipops and place at each table setting.
Throw a teddy bear themed baby shower for a special friend or family member to create memories and help welcome the little one.
