Sushi is the forbidden food for pregnant women. Raw fish, high in mercury count is the first no-no that pregnant women are told about, making it one of the foods they crave the most. Pregnant Baby Lifestyles staffer Ellen has been daydreaming about California rolls topped with dynamite sauce for months and hated that she wouldn’t be able to eat it at her shower, since she thought of having it at one of her favorite sushi restaurants. Just to make her mouth water a little more, we came up with a fish-free sushi shower

I want to have a ‘pear’ themed baby shower.” Talk about original! Green is such a great color for a shower, and it’s a great way to incorporate some femininity in a room full of women celebrating boys. Pear green is between lime green and a more mossy color green, making it a hue that works really well with a variety of complimentary colors including teal, yellow, pink, red and brown. After finding this beautiful table setting, we were off and running with ideas for a fruity affair for the perfect ‘pair’!

When planning a baby shower, you don’t have to decorate in the cute pink or baby blue colors. You don’t even need to have a party that resembles a shower.

A complete class-act, the shower took place in Sonoma and instead of featuring wines, showcased insanely gorgeous Raj tents.

We got an email in from Adrienne Miller who needed help thinking of a fun first birthday party idea for her twins Jake and Alexa. “It’s difficult with one of each because I can’t make it too girly or too much for boys. There are only so many ideas that are within that happy medium and are fun.” No problem Adrienne! Amy from Stem Parties did a baby shower for one of her friends that might be right up your alley. It’s a Dr. Seuss inspired ‘Thing 1 and Thing 2′ shower, which can easily be incorporated for a first birthday party.
Going the extra mile to spruce up your tables can have a big visual impact at your baby shower. Using nontraditional patterns such as black and white damask will leave your guests in awe. Google defines damask as “A rich silk fabric woven with elaborate designs and figures, produced by complicated weaving, often of a variety of colors.” When you think of the swirly pattern, you may think Grandma’s boring kitchen table linens or ugly floral patterns…or just plain old…old! But think again, because damask is back! From the runway-ready clothing and accessories to the latest couture table settings, the Damask pattern has reinvented itself and is a fabulous way to accent tables…or anything for the matter in a unique and visually stimulating way! It says “elegant” “vintage” and “ultra-modern” simultaneously.

Cherry blossoms stand for virtue and new beginnings, making them a perfect theme for a the welcoming of a new baby. They symbolize ephemeral things: our lives, our joys, and those all-too-brief times on cloud nine, like your baby shower. The chocolate brown of the branches and the strawberry pink of the flowers are colors that look great together. A cherry blossom baby shower theme lets you not only draw on those lovely colors, but bring a sophisticated flair to your day without having to try too hard.
Baby shower favors are a great way to communicate the theme of a party as well as provide a unique memento to guests of the event.
