These Real Moms Had a Specific Baby Shower Theme in Mind and They Look Fun!
  • Celebrations surrounding the arrival of a baby these days may involve a bit of production. But when you look at each one carefully, no matter what the baby shower theme is, it is always about spreading the love and joy everyone feels when they hear the news of a baby. And who doesn't like a party that's filled with your favorite people in the world!

    So whether you're doing a baby shower in your living room or not, we hope some of these real baby showers inspire you.

    Adventure time

    Alexa Ilacad threw her sister, Nadine Smith, an Adventure Time-inspired baby shower since both of them are fans of the animated series. When Nadine was pregnant, she would watch this show all the time. In fact, they called Nadine's baby girl “Fluffy Space Princess,” inspired by the Adventure Time character Lumpy Space Princess and now Nadine's husband’s term of endearment for their daughter!

    Even family members were asked to wear pink (or white for those who didn’t own anything pink). Alexa also ordered the cutest Adventure Time cake with Princess Bubblegum and Lumpy Space Princess as toppers (and, yes, it tasted a little like bubblegum!)

    “It’s also interesting to note that when I was pregnant, I always craved for pink desserts!” Nadine said.

    Pink Pastel Paradise

    A pink-and-white palette is already an adorable classic motif. But Myrene Fornoles of Festivo Events decided to give it an even luxe feel for the baby shower of Irene and Norman Fallaria.

    The floral and crystal centerpieces with candles gave it an intimate touch. Paper flowers and lanterns on the ceiling made it a festive yet sweet affair.

    The souvenirs, which were customized jams and spreads, were placed in a burlap bag with a pink flamingo design. Even the prizes were all about flamingos – pens, travel kits, towels and notepads that were purchased in stores and online via Shopee.

    Since the new mom, Jennifer Asuncion, was restricted from eating sweets, their friends led by Phylicia Marie Pineda made a diaper cake instead. They bought all the materials, went on YouTube for a quick tutorial for the base, and then everything else was their own creativity.

    For the décor, they picked items from Shopee stores that went with the theme, from star-shaped blue and gold balloons to props and cutouts.

    According to Nadine, “Back when we had just started dating in early 2013, we had a date at the Mind Museum where we went inside a planetarium to watch a documentary about stars and constellations. Upon hearing the narrator mention the constellation Andromeda, we looked at each other and said AT THE EXACT SAME TIME: 'That’s a nice name for a baby girl!'

    And four years later, they did name their baby girl Andromeda!

    The dessert bar was everyone’s favorite corner because of the cute star-themed cake and colorful galaxy-inspired unicorn cupcakes with star-shaped candies, both created by Sugar Corner.

    The baby shower was held at D’Cup Coffee Republic, which was a restaurant that looked like a library full of books. The styling by Hey Holiday! spearheaded by Alessa San Juan was totally out-of-this-world. She made use of dreamy pastel colors for dessert buffet and backdrop, and of course, incorporated stars in her setup. The balloons by Pops & Decos also made everything look more charming and feminine.
