I really enjoy planning baby shower, because I love a good baby shower theme. This year has been so much fun planning events around trending baby shower themes, because there have been some good ones recently. Here are 11 trending baby shower themes we’re seeing a lot of this year.
1. Adventure Baby Shower
Let the adventure begin! To decorate for an adventure-themed baby shower, start by using travel-inspired decor pieces like globes, vintage suitcases, and maps.
Also consider bringing in elements from mountains or the forest, along with natural elements like potted plants, rustic wooden furniture, and branches to evoke the feeling of being outdoors.
Hang backdrops with adventurous phrases like “Adventure Awaits” or “Let the Adventure Begin!” to set the tone.
Opt for a neutral color palette with earthy tones like browns, greens, and soft blues to establish a serene and adventurous atmosphere.
With these decorations, your adventure-themed baby shower will transport guests to a world of wanderlust and anticipation for the new journey ahead.
2. Over the Moon Baby Shower
With twinkling stars, shimmering moon decorations, and a dreamy color palette, your baby shower will be a swoon-worthy event. Whether you’re expecting a boy or a girl, ‘Over the Moon’ is a versatile theme that will fill your event with a sense of magic and anticipation.
The Over the Moon baby shower theme usually features crescent shaped backdrop, fluffy clouds throughout the venue, twinkling lights and cut outs of stars.
Use cloud-like decorations such as white balloons and cotton ball clouds, giving the impression of floating among the stars.
With these decorations, your “Over the Moon” baby shower will transport guests to a dreamy space to celebrate the arrival of your little one.
3. Teddy Bear Baby Shower
The teddy bear baby shower (or “We Can Bearly Wait” theme) the is definitely still the top trending baby shower of the season, even though it’s truly always a classic.
Decorate the space with an array of teddy bear-themed elements, from plush teddy bears in various sizes to teddy bear figurines adorning tables and shelves.
With these decorations, your teddy bear baby shower will exude warmth and nostalgia, making it a heartwarming celebration to welcome the newest member of the family.
4. Butterfly Baby Shower
I absolutely love the butterfly baby shower theme for a little girl! It creates such a beautiful, whimsical space full of feminine touches.
The color palette usually includes pastel colors of soft pinks, lavender, and pale blues. Decorate the venue with butterfly silhouettes and cutouts. Consider hanging strings of butterfly-shaped paper or fabric garlands to create a fluttering effect throughout the space.
Incorporate fresh flowers and potted plants to evoke a garden-like setting, with butterfly-shaped confetti or table runners adding a touch of charm.

The “Sweet as Can Bee” baby shower theme is definitely trending this year.

Also called a “Taco Bout a Baby” theme, this type of baby shower is jam packed with vibrant colors and amazing food (hello taco bar).
Start by embracing a bold and festive color palette, featuring bright reds, yellows, blues, and greens. Read more about the Taco ‘Bout a Baby shower theme so you can plan your own fiesta shower!

A Princess Baby Shower theme is all about bringing a little royal flair to the celebration of a new baby. It’s like stepping into a fairy tale world where everything is cute and regal at the same time.

9. Oh Baby Baby Shower
For an “Oh Baby” themed baby shower, create a clean, modern, and minimalist decor that highlights the excitement of the upcoming arrival.
This is the perfect theme if you don’t actually want to be too “theme-y” if you will. You can find cute little Oh Baby signs to decorate the backdrop, as well as cake toppers and other signage.
10. Wildflower Baby Shower
Planning a Wildflower Baby Shower is all about embracing the beauty of nature and creating a relaxed, down-to-earth celebration.
Start by selecting a beautiful outdoor location, like a garden or a park, where wildflowers can be the star of the show. Incorporate a soft and soothing color palette that mimics the natural hues of wildflowers. Decorate with mason jar centerpieces filled with fresh wildflowers and rustic elements like wooden signage and burlap table runners.
Encourage guests to embrace the theme by wearing floral prints and bringing a touch of the outdoors with them.
Food and drinks can be fresh and wholesome, with a focus on delicious, farm-to-table options. This theme allows for a stress-free and charming celebration that honors the new life about to bloom, making it a memorable and heartwarming experience for everyone involved.
