Baby Shower Theme – Which Do You Like?

mod monkey baby shower

I’m co-hosting a baby shower for a friend next month and having a hard time deciding which way to go with the theme, so I thought would be fun to see which theme YOU guys would most like to see all done up & photographed for future inspiration.

Ginny is having a boy (Max) – so my first thought was to do some sort of “We’re Going Monkeys for Max!” theme. The first 2 inspiration boards below are variations of a monkey theme: Mod Monkey and (traditional) Sock Monkey. The third concept – Woodland Forest – is inspired by an adorable Colorbok scrapbook collection called “Friendly Forest“, which I’ve been antsy to use in a party setting for a while.

Anyways, here are my 3 “starter inspiration boards” – which theme do YOU like best?

Once the theme is chosen, I’ll work on a more extensive idea board with all the little details. I’m open to any suggestions you guys have as well. Thanks so much for your help!

(P.S. Shopping resources for everything above will be added to this post tomorrow.)

My first thought was mod monkey but after seeing the inspiration boards I’m loving the woodland creatures theme. Its super cute and new. It seems like monkeys have been done a lot as of late although it is a cute theme.

I see your dilemma- they are all adorable! I do like the Woodland Forest however, I am loving the “We’re Going Monkeys for Max” so, my vote is for the mod monkeys.

#3 Woodland Forest caught my eye right away, the squirrel is adorable! #2 is runner up solely because of the colors, not big on the monkey

*LOVE* the sock monkeys! Torn between mod and traditional, though. (They’re the inspiration for our upcoming shopping portal, http://www.Bargainista.com — we paid major homage to sock monkeys in our gift guide in December, too: http://bit.ly/w5iUt ;)

All fab, but my fave is MOD MONKEY! I love the yellow/blue/brown combo. It would also be great for a 1st birthday party! (my son’s was monkey themed! ;)

Either sock monkey or woodland forest.
I really like woodland forest – but sock monkey is really whimsical and unique.
