Party Ideas for Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Shower Theme
There is no better way to celebrate the forthcoming birth of a star than to gather an array of heavenly stars in one glittery baby shower. A star baby shower is a perfect gender-neutral theme if the mum-to-be doesn’t know whether she’s having a boy or a girl. Even if she does know, putting all the stars together is a sweet gesture to shower both mom and her twinkle little star with celestial fun and goodies.
Inspiration from the Classic Nursery Rhyme
“Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” is a timeless children’s song sang by moms to their little infants. With this nursery rhyme in mind, create a cohesive star baby shower to come up with a starry night effect of sparkly accents. The key is to incorporate blue, yellow and green into the colour scheme that runs throughout the party decors and food ideas.
If you’re tight on budget, make your own stars out of coloured cardboard and paint them with glitters. Hang star-shaped string lights to add a bit of sparkling delight in the party area. Adding silver to the palette can help reinforce the glittery theme. Suspend gorgeous silvery fabric to do an impression of a starry sky in whimsical fashion. To create eye-catching bling, add strips of silver gift wrappers for more shimmer. Mylar star-shaped balloons are the right trimmings to complete a fully coordinated theme.
Starry Food Ideas
Keep the star-shaped cookie cutters handy to create lots of star-shaped food items, including cookies, sandwiches, scones, and even jiggling Jellos. Crescent rolls are the perfect choice for bread to be paired with star-shaped fillings of ham and cheese. Serve fruit or green salad with star-shaped fruits and veggies.
Serve the food on star-shaped platters lined-up on the buffet table covered with navy blue cloth. Mix a refreshing punch and add some golden yellow or light blue food colours. Float plenty of star-shaped ice cubes in the punch bowl so guests can scoop one or two onto their drinking cups. A must-have feature is a cake that can either be a plain star-shaped layer cake or an elegantly tiered cake embellished with spray of shooting stars. Position the cake alongside white and blue pillar candles surrounded by terra cotta pots painted with stars and filled with white or yellow blooms to create a picture-perfect centerpiece.
Games to Wonder
Get your guests wondering as they work their brain double time with baby shower games that require lots of concentration and memory. This includes Baby Top 40 where participants write down as many songs they can think that has the word “baby”, and “Name that Nursery Rhyme” where contestants write down the title of the baby song being played.
The mama-to-be and her guests are bound to have a heavenly time at this star baby shower. Aren’t you glad you have a lucky twinkle little star to thank for all these glimmering ideas?
