How to Throw a Sports Baby Shower?

A fun and artistic theme to use for a baby shower is the sports themed one. If you are in need of sports baby shower theme ideas then you have come to the right page. Please read on and learn everything you require.

If you will be the host for the event, you should ask the expectant parents whether there’s a special team they wish to be highlighted in the baby shower. If they are both sports enthusiasts, for sure, they have a very good idea.

Even when you do not focus on a particular team, you may always create a general sports themed baby shower that showcases various forms of sports such as baseball, hockey, soccer and football.

Sports Themed Invitations

The invitations can be cut into cute shapes like a ball, bat, helmet or jersey. To make them more creative, you can paste small pieces of fabric and buttons on them to make the invitations more personalized. Another great idea that you may consider is to make the invitations look like entry tickets.

The guests can also make the event more enjoyable. You may request them to wear and bring something that is related to sports. Jerseys, baseball caps and team sweaters are welcome. Just see to it that the required details are printed and the contact number is easy to read on the invitations.

 Baby Shower Atmosphere and Decorations

We move on to decorations. In a sports themed baby shower, the decorations depend on your preference, whether you like to focus the theme on a certain team or you just want to have a general sports theme. In these two options, you can actually use helmets, jerseys, bats and other pieces of sports equipment to design the walls and tables of the venue to make the theme of the baby shower more emphasized.

Entrance and Indoor Decorations

The balloons could cover the wall behind the table where the main foods are placed. The sports themed helium balloons could be tied to your flower bouquets placed on the tables for guests.

You can make a creative decoration by simply hanging the clothesline and pinning cute sports themed baby outfits, booties, hats and bibs onto it.
