Teddy Bear Baby Shower Invitations
The best options for teddy bear baby shower invitations are on Etsy, because you can purchase fully editable invitations that you can customize easily for your baby shower. They usually come with diaper raffle cards, book raffle cards, and matching thank you cards.
You can print them out yourself or send them to a printer.
We Can Bearly Wait Welcome Sign + Entrance
You’ll want to include entrance decor or a welcome sign to greet your guests as they walk through the door. This is usually the first place guests will see the teddy bear theme.
Oftentimes, this area is decorated with beautiful balloon garland with a giant teddy bear greeting guests. This space can also double as a photoshoot backdrop for guests and the mama-to-be.
Teddy Bear Baby Shower Decor
Decorating for a teddy bear baby shower is so much fun. It’s truly the most adorable baby shower theme because it’s whimsical and will always be a classic.
1 – Mix your teddy bear decor with flowers for your centerpieces.
This is one of my favorite table settings for a “We Can Bearly Wait” baby shower. I love how they’ve mixed brown and cream flowers to the table to accent the teddy bear cake and the cuddly bears.
2 – Include floating teddy bears throughout the baby shower.
Floating teddy bears may be my favorite way to decorate a teddy bear baby shower. Simply tie a small teddy bear to the bottom of balloon chandeliers filled with helium.
3 – Consider a teddy bear and play tent for the gift area.
You can decorate the table or area gifts are dropped off for the new baby. Kick this spot up notch by adding a play tent and giant teddy bears to decorate the space. Add accents of balloons and balloon garland as well.
4 – Create a stunning backdrop for the mama-to-be with balloon garland.
Balloon garland is one of the biggest baby shower trends that we are continuing to see into 2023.
You can pick up a balloon garland kit and create this yourself, or you can hire a balloonist to come set this up at the baby shower for you.
It’s the perfect backdrop for the expectant mom to sit in front of while opening gifts, so add a chair and some extra accents to make it the perfect space.
Teddy Bear Centerpiece Ideas
Let’s talk about teddy bear centerpieces. In addition to table covers and place settings, the centerpiece is one of the biggest focal points in the room.
1- Floating teddy bear
Again, we have the floating teddy bear, which is so adorable and such a great idea. You can leave everything else simple if you do something like this because it really adds pizzazz on its own to a space.
2 – Teddy Bear in a hot air balloon
Hot air balloons are often a big part of a teddy bear baby shower theme. I love how this little teddy bear is sitting in the hot hair balloon basket.
3 – Teddy Bear against wooden hot air balloon
You can also add in the hot air balloon accents with paper or wooden decor pieces.
4 – Teddy Bear holding balloons
Glue a small teddy bear to a wood slice and have it holding balloons. You’ll need table balloon stand kits for this to work.

We Can Bearly Wait Cake + Dessert Table
Setting up the dessert or cake table is always a fun part of planning any baby shower, and a teddy bear baby shower isn’t any different. The special day wouldn’t be complete without dessert!
Consider adding rustic touches, balloon garland, or floating teddy bears to the table. You can also frame and add teddy bear printables to the table to really drive the “We Can Bearly Wait” theme home.
1 – Serve Ice Tea in Teddy Bear Cups
Serve iced tea or water in these adorable mini honey bears! You can grab these bear jars in bulk and then place them on your appetizer or dessert table.
2 – Teddy bear ‘smore cupcakes
How cute are these teddy bear cupcakes? Some teddy bear baby shower themes mix in a camping theme, and these would be too perfect!
3 – Teddy Bear cake pops
Teddy bear cake pops are a popular choice for this type of baby shower. You can have them custom-made or DIY them yourself. I love how they’re served on a wood slice tray, because it adds a rustic vibe to the bear theme.
4 – Teddy Bear Cake
And, of course, you can never go wrong with a teddy bear baby shower cake.

Teddy Bear Baby Shower Games
Love them or hate them, baby shower games and activities are a must-do tradition. Here are some fun teddy bear baby shower games.
1 – How many gummy bears in the jar?
You can print this How Many Gummy Bears game out, which comes with the sign you can frame and the cards guests will fill out.
Add a certain amount of gummy bears to an empty jar (be sure to count them) and have guests guess how many are inside. The person who guesses the correct number or is the closest to the number wins a prize.
2 – Teddy Bear Diaper Relay Race
Have you heard of diaper relay races at baby showers? Guests team up and have to change a baby doll’s diaper and race to the next person, who has to change it again. Only we’ll use teddy bears to fit with our theme.
3 – Don’t Say Baby
“Don’t Say Baby” is one of the most popular party games because it actually is pretty hard not to say baby at a shower. Guests are usually given clothespins, and when someone is caught saying baby, their clothespin is taken away. The last person with their clothespin wins a prize.
Instead of clothespins, think of something teddy bear related, like these cute teddy bear necklaces.
4 – Teddy Bear themed games you can print
You can find various baby shower quizzes and guessing games that are tailored to baby shower themes, including the teddy bear theme.

How cute are these mini champagne bottles? Attach a bow and a mini teddy bear to each one for the perfect teddy bear baby shower favor.
2 – Teddy Bear Grahams
Consider an edible baby shower favor, like Teddy Grahams! Place them in a sachet or plastic bag with teddy bear labels on them.
3- Teddy Bear Label
You can print out these teddy bear custom labels and add them to any sachet or favor. Consider adding gummy bears, cookies, mints, etc.
4 – Local Honey
Honey is a brilliant idea for a teddy bear shower favor. You can find mini jars of local honey that guests will love, or you can buy them in bulk with attached custom tags.
The teddy bear theme baby shower is whimsical and will always be a classic. Add a few of these elements to your “We Can Bearly Wait” baby shower, and you’ll have a beautiful event.
