1. “The Little Prince” themed baby shower

First on our list of lil’ prince baby shower ideas has to be a baby shower specifically inspired by the classic French children’s book “Le Petit Prince” (or, in English, “The Little Prince”). Because it’s a French book, you can incorporate a combo of the other lil’ prince baby shower ideas on this list and French or Parisian-inspired baby shower ideas—as well as ideas inspired by the plot and characters of the book itself. To get started, check out this detailed advice on planning a “Little Prince”-themed baby shower from Kara’s Party Ideas.

2. Set the right tone with your baby shower invitations

Your baby shower invites should give your guests a feel for your party theme. So they are integral to the process of constructing the theme by setting expectations. Make sure to send out your baby shower invitations about three to six weeks before the date of the event.

3. Decorate your own prince-themed cake

There are plenty of guides out there to help you decorate a cake fit for a prince, but we’re especially big fans of this royal blue cake with a golden crown on top and accompanying gold accents. The tutorial, courtesy of YouTuber “Cakes and Beyond by Crizels,” is also easy for anyone to follow (including beginner cake decorators).

4. Use gold paint and/or gold glitter to spruce up everyday items

With some gold paint and glitter, you can instantly transform everyday items into opulent decor. The example below uses gold paint on Ball canning jars to elevate their look as DIY flower vases and match the party’s overall color scheme.

5. Use edible gold spray paint on food/snacks

6. Display cake pops like a multi-tiered cake

Cake pops have a few advantages over regular cakes: they’re adorable, and they’re easy to carry around, with no need for plates or forks to enjoy them. Plus, you can make them look just as impressive and festive as a regular cake with the right display arrangement.

7. Need crowns for decor? Cut up old toilet paper/paper towel tubes!

This is an easy and affordable lil’ prince baby shower idea that’s perfect for those who love to DIY their party decor. Our suggestion in #4 to use gold paint would definitely apply here!

8. Make giant toy blocks out of cardboard boxes

Create giant toy blocks displaying the name or word of your choice. To do so, use evenly sized cardboard boxes (all sides should be the same length) and paint them to look like blocks! This is an impressive yet affordable decor addition for any baby shower.

9. Create a royal entrance for your shower

You set the tone and theme for your shower with your invitations. Next, you can also do this with the vibe of the entrance to your party. Take things to the next level with an entrance fit for a king (or a baby prince!), like this one.

10. Set up a photo backdrop as a place for you and guests to take photos

Having a designated spot for photos—like this lovely backdrop from Etsy—adds a level of festivity to your event’s photos. It also increases the chances that you and your guests will have lots of photos of the gathering to look back on! If you have the budget for it, hiring a professional photographer for your baby shower is another great option to consider.

11. Offer blue and gold lollipops with glittery golden crowns as party favors

We love the look of these adorable and tasty party favors, which are another suggestion that’s pretty easy and self-explanatory to DIY.

13. Incorporate a purple or royal blue and gold color scheme

There’s just something about these combinations of colors that gives a royal vibe—gold because we associate it with the wealth and opulence of royalty (think gold crowns and jewelry), and royal blue because it’s long been associated with royalty. Purple is another color with regal associations because, before the invention of synthetic dyes, purple dye was incredibly expensive so only royalty could afford to wear clothes dyed this color.

14. Take advantage of thematically appropriate free printables

There are so many free printables for this theme to be discovered across the web! We’re big fans of these ones from Catch My Party, which include matching invitations, banners, labels for food and party favors, and more that will help give your party a cohesive aesthetic. 

15. DIY a royal centerpiece for your party table

When it comes to lil’ prince baby shower ideas for decor, making your own centerpieces is a great way to save a bit of money while having fun (if you enjoy crafty activities!). We love how convincing this centerpiece is!

16. Or buy a fancy crown centerpiece to save time and effort
