Little Princess Baby Shower

Mommy to be has a little princess on the way so a princess theme is perfect for a baby shower in her honor.  Showers are a wonderful way to help a new mom get everything she needs for her bundle of joy, and we are going to give you all the party ideas you will need to plan the perfect baby shower. Baby shower decorations, invitations, party games and personal touches will all come together for a memorable day!

baby girl princess shower invitations
Send a personalized baby shower invitation that will get everyone excited. Keep in mind that invitations should be sent out at least 4 weeks before the shower. Play off the princess theme with royal wording:
Here-ye! Here-ye!
A royal princess is on her way!
 
Celebrate with Queen Ann
at a baby shower in honor of her 
and her future princess.
If you want to go all out for you mother-to-be consider having a custom caricature of her drawn! You can have the celebrant dressed as a pregnant queen with a tiara sitting on her baby bump.  Not only can you use it for invitations, but signage, seating cards and favors too!

Baby Girl princess Shower Decorations and Party Supplies
You can start off by welcoming everyone to your princess baby shower with a personalized baby shower banner. Then set out a display of baby photos of the mom and dad to be on a table in the entry. This is a great place for a life-sized cutout of the mommy-to-be as well.
 
When the Mommy-to-be arrives, welcome her with a princess scepter. They will love wearing these at the shower. If your guests don't know each other well, you may want to also consider name tags at the party.  Pre-print them with the guests name and be sure to add princess so you can introduce "Princess Ann" to "Princess Beth".

Here are a few more quick and classic decorating ideas for your princess baby shower -
  • Mini crowns - these adorable mini crown can be used to decorate the buffets. These also make perfect napkin rings
  • Mylar princess balloons mixed with latex princess balloons - create fun and colorful bouquets.
  • Flowers - for such an elegant theme, why not use pink floral bouquets throughout the room.

Baby Girl Shower Table Decorations and Menu
Your tables will be a major focus in the room, so make sure they look great. The color scheme that matches the paper goods for this party is light pink, dark pink, purple and light green.  If you are using linens, I would go with a combination of light and dark pink tablecloths with light purple napkins.  Mix the linens up around the room to make the color pop in the room.  Pink linens with baby princess theme paper goods are also a perfect option. 
 
There are so many wonderful princess theme centerpieces that work for a princess baby shower.  How about a beautiful low arrangement of flowers with a small tiara placed on top of the flowers?  Or how about a fun cupcake tower with pink cupcakes each topped with a mini tiara? Another simple centerpiece is to use a plush princess crown as a base with balloons coming out of the center. 
 
Glam up the tables a bit with more decorations fit for a princess.
  • Pink boas - wrap one around the back of each chair
  • Castle confetti - scatter this fun sparkling confetti around your centerpieces
  • Photos - add small framed photos of the future Mom and Dad to each table in beautiful silver frames

Baby Girl princess Shower Games and Activities
One of the main activities at a baby shower is watching the guest of honor open all of the cute baby gifts! When she opens her gifts, make sure someone is writing down who gave what. A family member is usually a better choice than a friend for this job because they are familiar with many of the guests. Also, be ready with a trash bag for all of the paper!
 
Bridal shower bingo is one of my favorite games to play at a shower.  Start with fun blank bingo sheets and let guest write in what they think the Mommy-to-be will be getting.  As she opens her gifts, guests mark off the presents they guessed.  Give out small prizes as people get Bingo!
 
How about letting the guests design some couture gear for the future princess.  Gather an assortment of white onesies, baby dresses and bibs and let your guests decorate them with fabric paints and pens.  Bring in a jewel puncher as well and let them "bedazzle" their creations.  I've had great success getting white children's clothes from Dharma Trading.

We also have a huge list of baby shower games that you can play throughout the party on our Baby Shower Games page.

Baby Girl Shower Party Favors
Don't forget to treat your guests like princesses and send them home with a wonderful baby shower favor to remember this special day.  We love personalized lollipops as a favor for a baby shower.  Delicious and fun!  Here are some other baby shower favor ideas:
Have a wonderful time at this princess theme baby shower.  The mommy-to-be and all her guests are sure to have a fantastic day.
