Hi girls! I know it's still too early to put any serious thought into baby showers, but I was just wondering if anyone else had thought about what they want to do shower wise or what themes they'd like to go with. If you have other kids, what did you do for their baby showers?
With my first son, I did stars and moons (all blue, of course!) and matched his nursery accordingly. We had fresh flowers in blue baby baskets on the tables and perriwinkle table cloths. It was beautiful! I didn't have a shower with my second baby because it was another boy and we had so much from my first boy we really didn't need anything. With my daughter we had to do it up style because I finally got my princess! We did a Disney Fairies theme, with dark purples, greens, and blues. All of the tablecloths were this purple crushed velvet that changed to green in the light, and we had cupcakes instead of a cake that were the same colors with edible glitter!
With baby #4 I was thinking of doing a Halloween themed baby shower! It's not something that I've ever seen before, and let's be honest, how often could you really do something like that? Especially since I've had a girly and a boy shower... I figured it would be fun to do something different with this one! What are your ideas?

With DS I had 4 showers. All the themes varied and were "babyish" Noah's Ark, Blue with Chubby Baby, Sweet Pea, Bee theme (to match the nursery).
I threw a Surprise Halloween Baby shower before. Everyone dressed up and the mom to be thought it was a halloween costume party. That was fun!
I had 3 showers with Nicholas, one at my work, one at DH's work, and then one family. All themes were realated to animals because his nursery is Rainforest animal themed.
With this one I probably won't have a shower except for maybe a small one at work. If I have a choice, it will be a diaper/wipes shower because that is mostly what we will need!
I had 3 showers with DD and one with DS (after he was born). There weren't really themes for any of them--with DD there was just a lot of pink. This time, I really want to have a blessingway, which is more of a party to honor the pregnant mother than an opportunity to give gifts for the baby, because we really don't need anything for this baby. I have been looking at ideas for it, and I think it will be really neat.
We probably won't have another shower, and if we do I don't get say in what the theme is??! I don't mind though, it takes all the fun out if I know every detail!
"Sprinkles" aren't common here.
