Baby It’s Cold Outside Baby Shower Ideas to Celebrate a New Baby Arrival!

Baby It's Cold Outside Winter Baby Shower Ideas the Perfect Theme for a November, December, January, February or March shower using snowflake decor and gold and silver accents

Wow,  winter has hit Virginia this week! I’m hoarding all the cozy things – from leg warmers to shoulder wraps – I don’t like to be cold! (Does anyone?) The irony isn’t lost on me, as I sit down to share my Baby It’s Cold Outside baby shower ideas with you, that the weather here in Virginia had single digits overnight – IT IS COLD!   Grab some hot cocoa – let’s plan a winter baby shower filled with snowflake decor! You can shop for all your decor and tableware right here in the shop in the Baby It’s Cold Outside Baby Shower shop. Blue, gold, and silver are our theme’s colors.

This baby shower theme is full of silver, gold and ice blue. You can find lots of snowflake decor at Christmas, and it is perfect for this theme.

“Baby It’s Cold Outside” is the perfect theme for a winter baby shower – complete with a hot cocoa bar and glittery silver and gold decorations.  Here are some tips from the baby boy shower I helped put together for a dear family friend.

Baby It’s Cold Outside Decor Ideas

A giant BABY M (baby’s last name initial – the first name was still a secret!) balloon display, blue balloon bouquets, and a tassel garland became our backdrop for the living room. 

When you organize a winter (indoor) event – look for decor that will be of the right scale to your event.  Consider both the number of people attending and where people are likely to gather – the best way to make a room feel FULL and cozy is to have touches of the party decor all around the party area – but no one wants balloons bouncing off their heads or obstructing conversation.

I decided to greet guests right at the door with the theme – I tucked a “Baby It’s Cold Outside”  glitter paper cutout in the Christmas wreath that was already on the front door. 

You can do something similar with snowflakes or fake snow sprayed on a wreath (tip – fake spray snow is a great way to hide a little dryness in a holiday wreath!)

Don’t overdo the table decorations – if you’re going to use the table to eat or play games – remember that guests will want to be able to see each other through what you put in the middle of it.

table decorations for Baby It's Cold Outside Baby Shower

We created a simple table centerpiece of blue hydrangeas, baby’s breath, and candles, and surrounded it by scattered sparkly confetti and plastic pacifier and diaper pins.  We left it simple to allow guests t lots of room as this table was where a cute little hand illustrated the guests created alphabet cards.

Baby Shower Food Ideas

We set up the food around the kitchen island – tying balloons to the bouquet centerpieces and hanging banners under cabinets.  The balloons I used were white pearl along with clear balloons filled with white silver and gold confetti – and I tied them with sparkly white and gold ribbons as an anchor.

We set up a hot cocoa bar station in the corner of the kitchen – complete with toppings.

Don’t be afraid to bring in punches of color if you have a specific color scheme set – these bright flowers were a great reminder that while it’s cold outside – spring always returns.  I think one mistake hosts make with party decorating is getting too caught up in a ‘theme’ – I often approach decorating for a party like decorating my house – I don’t want everything to be ‘matchy-matchy.’

Baby It’s Cold Outside Signature Cake

We used this armoire area as the backdrop for playing games and worked out well to hold our Baby Jeopardy Board.  We used lots of layered banners all around the house – giving sparkle to each corner.
