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?

Theme A: MOD MONKEY

Theme B: SOCK MONKEY

Theme C: WOODLAND FOREST

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.)

I like Mod Monkey and Woodland Forest the best. Mod Monkey because it fits your “Mad for Max” theme perfectly and I love the idea of using a modern take on monkeys. Woodland Forest because it’s so unique and incredibly adorable!

I just remembered, we did a jungle-themed shower for my sister-in-law, and I made a 3D monkey cake from a teddy bear pan. Here is the link if you (or someone you know) wants to give it a go.
