What is a Baby Yoda Baby Shower?
A baby shower is a joyous occasion where family and friends shower parents-to-be with baby essentials to reduce the burden of preparing for a new baby.
Baby showers used to be geared towards moms, but co-ed showers with mom and dad present are becoming a huge hit. And a baby Yoda theme can be the perfect theme to excite men into attending. After all, who isn’t a Star Wars fan?
To turn your baby shower into a baby Yoda theme, you’ll need to incorporate aspects of the Child into your decor. For example, it can be in what the parents wear, such as these parent-to-be ribbons or pin buttons.
How to Throw a Baby Yoda Baby Shower
There’s no big secret about how to throw a baby Yoda baby shower. And there are no rules on how much of your theme has to feature the Child himself.
Want to keep it simple? Choose a baby Yoda color palette, like green, brown, and orange. Use these colors throughout your decor, from the tablecloths to the napkins and dinnerware.
Then, strategically feature the Child in key places, like a party banner, a cake topper, or a few party games. These baby Yoda game bundles are simple, with only a single image of the Child at the bottom on white paper that you can print at home.
Baby Shower Schedule
Creating a schedule for your baby shower is one of the best ways to make sure it stays on track! You don’t need to make it crazy detailed, but a baby shower schedule can help make sure you get to everything you want to, as well as can help you stay on budget. We love to use our printable baby shower planner to keep it all organized!
At a minimum, do a mental estimate of the activities you want to do during your shower. You’ll want to use this info to ensure you plan enough time for everything.
You don’t want to tell guests your shower will only be an hour on your invitation. But then plan so much stuff that your party lasts a few hours instead.
What activities go along with a baby shower? Typically, there are –
- Greetings/farewells with the mom-to-be (and host if preferred)
While the average baby shower lasts between ninety minutes and three hours, you can extend or shorten your party to your needs. Dancing, toasts, videography, full meals, and crafts are popular activities for longer, more formal parties.
