If you’re planning a baby shower this year, you’re going to want to know what is most popular among moms-to-be. From the types of cakes that moms are ordering to the décor and baby shower favors, we have some of the hottest 2012 baby shower trends right here.
Baby shower cakes are one of the highlights of the event, and this year, there are some specific trends. Fondant is big this year, and cakes that actually look like a baby are very popular. If this creeps you out a little too much, consider ordering a tiered cake or cupcakes that feature your baby shower colors. Cake “pops” are also very popular, and can be used to create a cake bouquet that is a wonderful baby shower centerpiece.
One of the hottest new trends in baby showers this year is the gender reveal party. Hosts can ask guests to wear blue or pink based on their guess for the baby’s gender. At the end of the party, the mother-to-be will reveal her baby’s gender, and those who got it right will receive a special prize. This can make the baby shower a lot of fun, and is a great thing to base a theme on, if you plan on revealing your baby’s gender.
Baby shower brunch parties are becoming increasingly popular. They can be done in so many different ways, but a brunch buffet is one of the easiest ways to pull it off. Allow guests to choose from foods like “baby” pancakes with syrup dipping containers, muffins, and biscuits with jelly or jam. You might also include drinks like orange juice and a coffee bar so guests can create their own cup of coffee.
Personalized Baby Shower Favors
For parents who already know the gender and names of their babies, personalized baby shower favors are growing in popularity. From adorable favor boxes containing delicious snacks to the Personalized Expressions Collection Lip Balms, personalized favors are the perfect memento for guests and will serve as a fond reminder of the big celebration.
Keep these fun 2012 baby shower trends in mind when planning your celebration.
