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 have to say the monkey theme. I just finished a monkey themed baby shower for a friend of mine who was having her 5th! It was a lot of fun to put together and I didn’t even fit every thing in I wanted to. I really wanted to incorporate Curious George but the colors I chose just didn’t fit with the red and yellow.

I can’t wait to see what you decide!

Dio SAYS:

I love them all, but I’d have to say Woodland Creatures. It’s more of a unique theme, which will probably inspire more fun and creative ways to piece together.

Definitely the Woodland Forest one. It’s so adorable! Also, I’m not big on monkeys.

Gina SAYS:

Oooh, very tough choice. I think B. I think the sock monkey is recognizable as an icon that will work well for your theme.

I also love your boards. Would love to know how you put it together. Where do you get your images, products, etc.

A vote for “C” here. I love the colors of the Woodland theme and how modern it looks.

They’re all sooo cute! But, as much as I love the Woodland Forest, I think my favorite is the classic sock monkey – you really can’t go wrong with any of them :)
