THE MODERN BABY SHOWER

The key characteristic of the modern baby shower is fun! Color schemes, themes and furnishings are as dependant as ever on the hostess' decorative taste and today's hostess is a savvy shopper when it comes to ferreting out tableware and shower decorations with lots of style.





MODERN BABY SHOWER THEMES

Polka dots and stripes are exciting but themes are not out of style by any means. Just expect the old standbys to have a fresh new face. Teddy bears, monkeys and themes based on hobbies and lifestyles are still going strong.

BABY SHOWER INVITATIONS

A contemporary baby shower color scheme does not have to be a cacophony of bright and bold colors. Primary colors are not necessary to accomplish a timely atmosphere at the shower. If possible, I always recommend that you take your cues from the expectant mom's nursery decor if possible. If wild colors are working for her in her nursery, by all means follow suit when decorating your shower venue and choosing baby shower invitations. However, there’s nothing old fashioned about a peaceful, soothing color scheme.

PATTERNS

Stripes, polka dots and colorful graphics are all the rage in modern baby shower decorations so pick a color scheme and go crazy!

MODERN SHOWER DECORATIONS

Remember the old saying "The devil is in the details"? Well, in the case of contemporary or modern baby shower it’s the LACK of detail that makes all the difference. Leave fussy behind and take a minimalistic approach.

MODERN COLOR SCHEMES

Powder pink and baby blue are still appropriate at the modern shower so long as they are part of interesting color combinations.
Brown has become a welcome companion to both pink and blue as has bright lime green. Another trend is to jazz things up using hot pink or turquoise blue rather than the more sedate pastel shades.

THE BOTTOM LINE

It’s completely possible to give a nod to the old school way of decorating and still have a safe and stylish modern shower.
