Unique baby shower themes for girl
Looking for some baby shower ideas for girls that are a little different?
We’ve got all the best unique baby shower themes for girls that are every bit as special as you and your little peanut.
1. “The adventure begins” girl baby shower
Your baby girl is about to embark on that big adventure called life, so why not celebrate this with a hot air balloon-themed shower?
Paper balloon lanterns make beautiful decorations for your girl baby shower and you can adapt them to your chosen color scheme – why not a blend of pastel shades?
To complement the hot air balloons, you can create a sky-scape on the walls or behind the treat table, with tissue-paper clouds and birds flying by.
Send guests away with little hot air balloon baskets filled with goodies ‒ truly an unforgettable baby girl baby shower!
2. Purple baby shower for girls
Sure, pink is traditional for girl baby showers, but we think a purple baby shower for girls is just as pretty.
We’re thinking blackcurrant-flavored drinks and treats, lilac balloons, handfuls of lavender on the tables, and a beautiful cake adorned with blueberries.
3. Under-the-sea girl baby shower
We’ve seen lots of nautical baby showers for boys, but not many under-the-sea girl baby showers.
If you’re on the hunt for the most unique baby shower themes for girls, we think this is perfect!
For food, opt for goldfish crackers, hummus with blue food dye, a mermaid baby shower cake, and Chips Ahoy!
For decorations, get your hands on some green streamers (seaweed), shimmery blue balloons (the sea), and hanging jellyfish.
Make sure your guests have cameras ‒ this girl baby shower idea is Insta-ready!
4. Tropical girl baby shower
If you’re expecting your little one in the summertime, we love the idea of cooling off with this tropical girl baby shower idea.
Pineapples, coconuts, watermelons, flower necklaces ‒ why not go one further and host your girl baby shower on the beach, for a truly unique baby shower for a girl?
5. Baby-themed girl baby shower
This is one of the quirkiest, most unique baby shower themes for girls we’ve ever seen!
Essentially, everything looks like a baby ‒ the cake, the decorations, the food… maybe even the guests, if you want a costume baby shower for your baby girl!
6. “Grow-your-own” girl baby shower
For a charmingly rustic girl’s baby shower, take inspiration from the vegetable garden or farmer’s market with a “grow-your-own” theme.
This is one of the best girl baby shower ideas for the fall – after all, mama’s little pumpkin is nearly ready to greet the world.
Drape the tables with hessian or gingham, display sandwiches and muffins in wooden crates, and decorate with vibrantly colored fruits and veggies.
Golden sunflowers in tall jars or earthenware pots make a visual highlight.
7. “Sew” adorable girl baby shower
If mama-to-be is a crafting enthusiast, you could plan her shower around it.
The venue can be adorned with fabric bunting, garlands of ribbons, or knitted flowers.
You might even hang a clothesline of tiny baby garments as a decoration, which is particularly meaningful if these have been handmade by crafty friends and family members.
The girl baby shower cake could be shaped like a giant pincushion or a ball of yarn with knitting needles sticking out – there are so many fun possibilities!
Of course, a girl baby shower crafting activity is also a must, but make sure it’s simple enough that everyone can join in.
Decorating onesies (using fabric pens or paint) for the baby girl is a good choice.
Cute baby girl shower ideas
How about a sugary-sweet baby girl baby shower?
If you’re after something more adorable, check out these cute baby girl shower ideas:
8. Sugar and spice girl baby shower
Sugar and spice, and all things nice ‒ that’s what little girls are made of!
To pull off this girl’s baby shower idea, simply get your hands on some balloons spelling out “sugar & spice”, then cater the food around a cinnamon-sugar theme.
Donuts, chai latte, sugar cookies, pumpkin pie… a beautifully rustic sugar-brown theme makes for a picture-perfect girl baby shower.
9. Sunflower baby shower theme for a girl
How about a beautifully bright girl’s baby shower idea?
This sunshine-yellow girl baby shower is a little different from the traditional pink baby shower, but it brings a smile to our face.
Add some freshly-picked sunflowers and you’ve got the perfect girl baby shower idea!
10. Teddy bear girl baby shower
How adorable are these teddy bear girl baby shower cookies?
To fit the rest of the teddy bear girl baby shower theme, all you need is some oversized cuddly toys (for photos), and an adorable teddy bear girl baby shower cake.
11. “It’s a girl” baby shower
Ah, the classic “it’s a girl” baby shower theme.
It’s a classic for a reason ‒ a gender reveal and baby shower theme rolled into one!
Pick your favorite “it’s a girl” baby shower decor (we like this one), prep some food in the same color as your decorations, then you’re good to go!
12. Girl baby shower flower theme
What do you need for this cute baby girl baby shower theme?
Flowers, flowers, and more flowers.
Seriously. Just when you think you have enough flowers, get some more.
Put vases of flowers about the room, add single flowers on the food table, have everyone dress up in their best floral patterns, and adorn the mama-to-be in a flower crown.
13. Honey bee girl baby shower
A sweet little girl is on the way, so help the “mama-to-bee” (sorry, couldn’t resist!) celebrate with a cute honey bee girl baby shower.
The yellow color scheme can be varied with splashes of other colors from flowers in ceramic honey pots.
Add tiny icing bees and honeycomb patterns to the tops of your cookies and other sweet treats.
It’s up to you whether you also want to bring in our favorite honey-loving bear, Winnie-the-Pooh as well!
You could frame some vintage prints of Pooh bear and friends, which can be displayed in the nursery after the girl baby shower.
Outdoor baby shower ideas for a girl
Feeling outdoorsy? If you’re a keen hiker or beach babe, you’ll love these outdoor baby shower ideas for a girl:
14. Wonderful woodland girl baby shower
This is a great girl’s baby shower theme for a nature-loving mama-to-be.
Pick her favorite woodland animal or choose a few cuddly creatures – bunnies, squirrels, foxes, and owls are adorable options – and design the shower around them.
They can frolic across the cake, be used as table decorations, and adorn the invitations.
Turn the shower venue into a woodland glade, using twigs in jars, felt moss, and toadstool cookies.
Set out some owl-shaped note cards so that guests can share their wisdom with the mama-to-be.
15. Desert oasis girl baby shower
Pregnancy isn’t always an easy journey, so why not create an oasis of tranquility for the mama-to-be with a desert-themed girl baby shower.
Decorate with real cacti and succulents that you can give guests to take away with them, and serve cactus-shaped cupcakes or cake pops.
To balance out the sweetness, you could serve Mexican-themed savory options – let guests make their own nachos or burritos, for example.
And make sure there’s a margarita mocktail for the mama-to-be!
16. Fall baby shower for a girl
If you’re expecting your little pumpkin around the fall, why not embrace the autumnal vibes for your girl baby shower?
Collect dried leaves from outside for rustic, eco-friendly decorations (check for bugs, first!), stock up on all the tiny pumpkins, and opt for a color palette of reds and browns for this fall baby shower for a girl.
Elegant girl baby shower ideas
How about something a bit more fancy? Check out these glamorous elegant girl baby shower ideas:
17. Chocolate and berry girl baby shower
Looking for elegant (and delicious) girl baby shower themes?
Organize a decadent feast for the mama-to-be with a chocolate and berry-themed girl baby shower.
The color of the strawberries and raspberries provides a hint of traditional baby-girl pink, while the deep chocolate tones add sophistication.
A chocolate fountain would make an amazing centerpiece for your dessert table (perhaps even a quirky alternative to a tiered cake), with a selection of berries and cake bites to dip.
For favors, you could give guests recipe boxes with the ingredients to make chocolate brownies.
18. Pretty in pink girl baby shower
Cute baby shower themes for a girl don’t need to have a pink color scheme of course, but if you and the mama-to-be just love pink, then why not go for it?
Whether hot pink hearts and flamingos are your thing, or you’d rather have powder pink roses and butterflies, enjoy creating an unforgettable vision of pink.
To get guests into the spirit of the event, you could ask them to come along dressed in pink.
The dessert table can feature pink macarons, donuts, and candy hearts, and you can offer rose lemonade or berry tea (served in pink cups of course).
For party favors, you might bundle up pink lip gloss and nail polish and tie them together with pink ribbon.
19. “Baby is brewing” girl baby shower
Celebrate the little girl “brewing” inside the mama-to-be with a tea-themed girl baby shower.
This could be a vintage tea party with tiered cake stands, floral china, and lace table cloths.
Alternatively, you could go for a more contemporary style featuring teas from across the world – think matcha, rooibos, and chai – and an earthy green and tan color scheme.
Test guests’ tea knowledge with a blindfolded tasting game, where the winner takes home a selection of loose-leaf teas.
Tea infuser mugs can also make great girl baby shower favors.
Baby shower princess theme ideas
You’re a queen expecting your own little princess, so why not embrace your royalty with these regal baby shower princess theme ideas?
20. Snow princess girl baby shower
When you’re planning a baby shower for a girl during the holiday season, perhaps you’d like to give a festive flavor to your gathering.
A snow princess theme makes for a truly elegant girl baby shower, with crisp white and frosty silver tones.
You can draw on traditional fairy tales for ideas – or even check out the Frozen movies for a modern twist.
Make the venue sparkle with fairy lights, on the walls, or in glass jars on the tables, create a snow effect with fabric or tissue paper, and decorate with silver reindeer or snowflake ornaments.
The white cake could be topped with a silver crown for the little snow princess who’s on her way.
21. Fit for a princess girl baby shower
Why not be a princess for the day?
After all, your baby girl isn’t the only special guest at your girl baby shower!
A princess girl baby shower theme can bring a regal touch to your special day.
So don your crown, get dressed up in your fanciest (maternity) dress, go for a silver and gold theme for opulence, and sip some non-alcoholic Champagne on your very own throne.
22. Fairy tale girl baby shower
If you’re a Disney fan (same), this is the girl baby shower idea for you!
Pick your favorite Disney princess, and theme the whole baby shower around that film.
Cinderella stan? Go for frosted blues with a mini carriage for the girl baby shower cake.
Aurora admirer? How about a pink and blue girl’s baby shower theme. Add a few little fairies about the room for an extra touch of magic.
Belle buff? A soft yellow theme should do the trick. Don’t forget the books!

Tips for a girl baby shower
Throwing your own girl baby shower or organizing one for friends of family?
Here are our handy tips from our mamas-to-be on Peanut:
- Do: Ask others to contribute to the cost of the girl baby shower, if you’re comfortable.
- Do: Invite partners and children, if the mama-to-be wants them there.
- Do: Set up a baby registry for gift ideas for your guests.
- Don’t: Feel you have to have the mama-to-be awkwardly unwrap all the presents in front of everyone ‒ wait till the party’s over.
- Do: Have somewhere guests can write advice and well-wishes for the baby and parents, like a guest book.
- Don’t: Serve alcohol ‒ the mama-to-be will feel left out.
- Don’t: Organize it alone ‒ the mama-to-be, friends, family, even grandparents-to-be will all want to be involved.
- Do: Set a budget. It’s easy for the cost to get out of hand ‒ there are so many girl baby shower decorations out there, but you don’t need them all.
How do you make a special baby shower?
So what’s the best way to make a girl baby shower extra special?
Remember who the baby shower is really for ‒ the mama-to-be.
Do what will make mama happy.
Who pays for the baby shower?
There’s no hard-set rule for who pays for a girl baby shower.
While traditionally the host of the girl baby shower usually pays, you can split the cost between a few close family members and friends of the mama-to-be.
What activities happen at a baby shower?
It wouldn’t be a girl’s baby shower unless you played some fun baby shower games, complete with prizes, if you want!
Food is also usually served at a girl’s baby shower, and if you’re comfortable, you can also have a gift-opening session.
How can I have a cheap baby shower?
It’s easy to have a girl baby shower on a budget without skimping on the fun ‒ here are our top tips for how to have a budget-friendly girl baby shower:
- Opt for digital invites ‒ you don’t have to print them out. Design your own for free here.
- Choose someone’s home as the girl baby shower venue ‒ no need for venue fees.
- Set a limit for the guest list ‒ if you haven’t spoken to them since you announced your pregnancy, don’t invite them.
- Throw a virtual baby shower instead of an in-person party.
- Ask close friends and family to help out with the cost ‒ people want to help where they can.
- Throw the girl baby shower outside of usual eating times (not breakfast, lunch, or dinner), then you won’t have to serve a big meal.
- Skip the girl baby shower favors ‒ they’re not necessary, and your guests won’t hold it against you.
- Consider throwing a baby sprinkle instead of a baby shower ‒ like a girl baby shower, but smaller.
