Once in a Blue Moon Baby Shower

Planning a baby shower? I just adore this traditional baby blue shower decorated with a “Once in a Blue Moon” theme!

I just love the traditional touches and all the baby blue! Below are all the resources for where the items were purchased so you can throw your own baby shower for mom-to-be!

The book “The Magic Blanket” is nestled down in a cute wooden wagon for a sweet gift for Mom-to-be. The mini cupcakes with little onesie toppers are so adorable! Toppers like this are so perfect for dressing up regular store-bought or simple cupcakes.

What an easy way to dress up your treats! I also love how the wrapping paper is coordinated to the shower. While it’s not the case for guests arriving to the party (unless it happens to match), as the host, you can add this coordinated touch by selecting wrapping that fits the table and letting the presents act as decor too!

  1. Oh, I really like this traditional theme! I enjoy seeing how people create unique themes, but you just can’t beat a sweet baby blue theme.

  2. This is so sweet. Love the teddy bear, and the clothesline. Too cute.

  3. Hi I love this theme it is perfect. I would love to know how the cupcake toppers are made (edible or not). Thank You. Your Blog is inspirational.

    1. Fiona ~ the cupcake toppers are just scrapbook stickers stuck to shortened straws – so they are not edible but you could make them with rolled fondant. Have fun getting creative!

  5. Very cute! Im planning a boy shower for my sister. What is in the bucket??

  6. Phronsie Dial says:

    Renee: Everyone was invited for a “bucket” of lunch. Subway cold cut
    combo is in the bucket ~ used the buckets as plates because they are easy
    to carry with a drink. Good luck with your sister’s shower! :0)
