Tips for a Strawberry-themed Summer Baby Shower

Tips for a Strawberry-themed Summer Baby Shower!

Inspiration from these finds:

For your party tables, decorating with strawberries is such a breeze! The bright red berries make eye-catching centerpieces (1) piled into bowls or baskets, then trimmed with fresh green leaves.

Letting guests know about the sweet shower theme is just as easy. Simply find a strawberry-themed printable invitation (2) on the web, print out copies, and send them off!

Keep the baby shower menu light and fresh as well. A cheese-and-fruit station (3), featuring sliced strawberries, is a delish option served with an assortment of bread, rolls, and crackers.

As a double-purpose surprise, have pots of homemade strawberry jam along with the cheese and fruit. Then gift guests with mini jars of jam (4) to take home as favors, too!

A shower cake (5) made with layer upon layer of berries, cream, and chocolate would make such a pretty sight! While for a refreshing thirst-quencher, offer tangy pink strawberry lemonade (6) in country-style mason jars. Then, serve the cutest strawberry S’mores parfaits (7) for a sweet finish.

Our own ideas and tips:

  1. Centerpieces can also be made with whole berries on skewers, then placed in slender vases. Just add leafy sprigs to complete the ‘floral arrangement’ effect!
  2. Berries strung on baker’s twine or fishing line can be formed into cute napkin rings or used as mini bunting on top of the shower cake.
  3. Large whole berries can be notched and perched on the rims of party glasses or ice cream bowls as pretty garnish.
  4. Sliced strawberry ‘hearts’ would make darling decorations on cream-topped mini tarts or frosted cupcakes. Or floating in glasses of iced soda water!
  5. You could plan fun themed shower activities, like:
  • “Guess how many strawberries are in this jar/basket?” and win them all!
  • Each guest brings a favorite recipe using strawberries written out on a special card enclosed with the invite.
  • The guests create on-the-spot “nursery art prints” and felt strawberry mobiles for baby’s room.
