Hosting a baby shower in the winter months can be hard! When we think of baby shower themes, our first thoughts are usually flowers, bees, fruit, etc. (check out the Top Baby Shower Themes of 2021 by Babylist!). While these are all beautiful, they don’t exactly scream winter. Winter is a time for comfort, warmth, and rest. It is a time for crisp air, nature preparing for regrowth, sparkling lights, fires, and rustic wooden elements.

There are the typical winter baby shower themes like holiday/Christmas, Winter Wonderland, or “Baby it’s Cold Outside”. But honestly, how many times have we seen those done? What if you want to do something different and special? We’ve got you covered! Here are 7 beautiful + unique Winter Baby Shower ideas.

Cozy Winter

This flannel-inspired design is your quintessential winter baby shower theme. It is a classic spin on flannel and elicits a warm and toasty feeling. We recommend serving different toasts and comfort food (hello, soup bar!). You will also want to pair this with a Hot Chocolate & Coffee bar. Decorations include rustic wooden elements, candles, and winter greenery. You may want to have a fire on, or if you live in the south (like we do), just put a crackling fire on your tv screen! Finish it off with a S’more kit party favor and thank you tag.

A Winter’s Tea for the Mom-to-Be

Every girl played tea party when they were younger. The winter is a perfect time to throw a lovely tea party for a classy mom-to-be! You will serve afternoon tea snacks and biscuits. You will, of course, want to pair this with different types of teas. Decorations will be white linens, seasonal flowers and greenery, and antique silver platters. We recommend a tea cup or jam as a party favor with a thank you tag!

Bohemian Winter

Boho is such a beautiful style for anytime of year. The bohemian winter baby shower theme we are envisioning features forest green, mustard, & wine colors. Pair this with lots of rattan, basket weave, macrame, and meadow twigs in small brown vases. Charceuterie and tapa style foods are a popular style of food to serve at boho showers. Finish it off with a natural party favor – homemade hand scrub, lotion, or a soy candle.

Winter in Paris

Bonjour Bebe! This winter baby shower theme is inspired by a romantic Parisian winter. We recommend channeling a French café vibe by serving charceuterie and pastries. You will want to pair this with a coffee bar. Decorations include white and blue flowers with eucalyptus, antique gold candles, dusty blue glasses, and black and white striped ribbon. You may want to serve macaroons on a tiered antique platter with a naked cake for dessert. Check out the French Market themed baby shower below by Mr. & Mrs. Jones for inspo!

Let’s Get Pampered

We’re bringing the spa to you in celebrate of mom and baby! I don’t know about you…but if I got that invitation, I would be there. People want to be comfortable in the winter. Think warm and relaxing vibes. Have cute slippers at the door for your guests (this doubles as your party favor!). You will want to serve cucumber water and spa snacks. The ambiance is relaxing music, serene/blue colors, and lavender and eucalyptus essential oils. You can even create a massage station where guests and the mom-to-be can enjoy massages!

Baby is coming! But First, Coffee.

Indulge in a delicious creamy cup of coffee with this coffee themed winter baby shower. This includes an elaborate coffee bar with 3 winter specialty coffee drinks (plus some tea & decaf options!) We recommend serving donuts and snacks that go with coffee. A cute personal touch could be to-go coffee cups with custom sleeves. You could use coffee beans for the “Guess How Many Are in Here” game and decorate with tea candles in coffee bean centerpieces, surrounded by greenery. Finish it off with a winter simple syrup party favor and thank you tags that read “Thanks a Latte”.

Winter Berries

Remember when we talked about fruit inspired baby showers? Honor a “berry” special mom-to-be with our Winter Berry baby shower theme! Inspired by a naked cake with berries on a rustic wood slab, the Winter Berry baby shower is classic and beautiful. Decorations are rustic, including wooden elements, pinecones, winter greenery and eucalyptus. Winter berries are raspberries, blackberries and cranberries. We recommend a brunch shower, serving Berry French Toast Casserole and pairing with a Mimosa bar with berries. Finish it off with a jelly party favor and thank you tags that read “thank you berry much”.
