Does the mama-to-be adore the holidays? In December, the holiday season is in full swing. So, why not use the festive atmosphere to your advantage and set up some Christmas trees at your venue?  

Instead of using actual trees, you could put a twist on the classic decoration by making a balloon tree, like the one at this event hall in Queens, NY. How cute would that be? 

3. Add a dash of spring

The weather outside might be frightful. But depending on the baby’s due date, it might be delightful once they arrive. Instead of leaning into the winter theme, why not bring a breath of spring into your baby shower? 

You can do this in several ways — by setting out springy flowers (or faux flowers), decorating with bright and pastel colors, or hosting at a venue with a warm and springy vibe. It’s an awesome December baby shower idea for those who can’t wait for the thaw. 

No matter the season, brunch is always a perfect baby shower theme! Tie it into yours by using our baby shower brunch ideas.

4. Hang up snowflakes

One of the best parts of cold and chilly weather is wearing your pajamas around the house. So, why not bring that sense of fun to your baby shower by transforming it into a pajama party? This makes for some super adorable photoshoots and creates a casual and laid-back atmosphere. 

If you like, you could even ask guests to bring a pajama onesie as a gift. Not only does everyone get to enjoy chilling in their PJs, but the baby will also have a full closet of cozy sleepwear. Win-win! 

6. Warm up at a hot cocoa bar
