Is it just us, or is deciding on a baby shower theme in the winter tricky? Between days of overcast gray and icy showers of sleet, the choice isn’t always easy. To help inspire your winter baby shower theme, we’ve rounded several seasonally-appropriate ideas, perfect for celebrating the mom-to-be in your life. From woodland-inspired adventure to sparkling snowflakes, here are six winter baby shower themes perfect for the cooler months.
The great thing about a woodland baby shower is that it’s neutral and totally versatile. Keep your eye out for details that have an earthy feel (like burlap runners and wooden centerpieces!) We love how Rad & Happy used upside-down rosemary to make little trees on the cake.
Baby it’s Cold Outside
This theme certainly has potential to be one of the coziest (just add hot chocolate and marshmallows!) There’s also opportunity to incorporate a gender-neutral color palette of icy blues and wintry silvers. Or, Brit + Co recommends taking a cue from the snow and making your theme all white.

You can create a gorgeous party spread filled with snowflake-inspired detailing (starting with the color palette!) We love how an elegant combination of crisp whites, silvers, and a touch of iridescent glitter can beautifully tie this whole theme together. Featured on The Chickabug Blog, this snowflake inspiration offers a number of helpful ideas (from dangling sugar cookies to custom-wrapped chocolate bars!)

Hot Chocolate and Cookies
We love the idea of taking two tempting treats—cookies and hot chocolate—and combining them into one delicious theme. Seasonally festive and so delicious, this is a winter baby shower theme your guests are sure to love.

Flowers add joy to any special occasion and with some sprigs of pine and baby’s breath, you can create a winter baby shower display worthy of celebration.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
You can keep this theme clean and simple by opting for a modern color palette of mostly white with chic pops of metallic. Jenny with Bloom Designs incorporated gold accents wherever possible (including the dessert table!)
Once you’ve narrowed down the perfect theme, consider an invitation that will properly set the stage for your shower. Greenvelope has a variety of winter baby shower invitations that you can browse through here!
