If you are expecting your baby in February, why not celebrate Valentineâ€™s Day a little early? For the baby shower, have a Be My Valentine Baby Shower. Valentineâ€™s Day is the most loving holiday of the year where people celebrate their feelings and express their love. These themes can blend beautifully in planning a Valentineâ€™s Day baby shower.
When decorating for this baby shower, think pink. Use pink plates, napkins, streamers and plastic utensils. Also, use red, too. Spice up your shower location with red or pink roses, or gerber daisies. Place red and pink candles all over your house for the shower as well, create a loving, warm environment for your shower. Plan the shower for the evening time, serve small foods and desserts. Make a heart-shaped wreath with red flowers for the door to welcome your guests. For food, also think reds and pinks. Serve pink punch, blush wine and red sweets like chocolate covered strawberries and candies. Instead of the traditional baby shower cake, have a red velvet cake or strawberry shortcake with whipped cream. For an easy, fun Valentineâ€™s punch, add ginger ale and lime to cranberry and grapefruit juice; the ginger ale adds a bubby effect to any punch.
For your Be My Valentine Baby Shower, have your guests make Valentines for your unborn baby as the shower activity. Buy construction paper, stickers and get the scissors and tape out for the party. Tell your guests to make creative Valentineâ€™s and send messages of love to the unborn baby. Maybe, make a couple of Valentines for the mom-to-be or dad-to-be too. The Valentines from the party can then be kept as a keepsake for the mom-to-be, and shared with the child later in life. The mom-to-be can select her favorite Valentine and award the winner with a big box of Valentineâ€™s chocolates!
