This lovely “SHOWERED FROM ABOVE” RAIN THEMED BABY SHOWER (with FREE printables) was submitted by Justine of Pretty Little Vintage in Melbourne Australia.
A few of the things I love most in this elegant rain themed boy baby shower are:
The dessert table set up on a baby crib, or cot, as it’s apparently called in Australia
The blue ombre cake with the tulle pom banner cake topper
Here’s what Justine said about planning the shower- “I’ve always had to work with lots of pinks and girly themes so I was very excited to put this baby boy shower together for a dear friend of mine Jennifer! This ‘showered from above’ themed party featured a dreamy baby cot dessert buffet with pom pom clouds and raindrops dropping from above. As all babies are a blessing from above we wanted this shower to reflect how special this time really is for the mom to be.
It was an intimate party of 15 of Jen’s closest friends so the cot made the perfect size as a dessert buffet table to display an array of gorgeous sweets such as almond & coconut flavoured ‘rattle’ cake pops, baby themed butter cookies, mini cupcakes, almond meringue, almond candy, Lindt chocolate bars and a delicious 4 layer blue ombre cake.
The party also featured a “Keep Calm & Enjoy your baby shower” drink station with a gorgeous lemonade dispenser and personalised water bottles with ‘nutrition facts’ about the little man to be. Everyone went home with a lolly bag filled with sweets and candy from the cot dessert buffet as well as a special baby bootie-ribboned goodie bag as a thank you gift from Jen herself.”

I have not been doing dessert tables for a very long time, but I am very proud of my most recent one. The “FROG PRINCE” baby shower dessert table was so much fun. I had never set a table with this theme and it would be completely different than all of the bright, girly colors that I use most of the time. :) Chocolate, green, and frogs were the only requests that were made when I asked the client about the theme that mom-to-be wanted. Because I LOVE color combinations, I added blue to the color scheme and prince to the overall concept as well. I didn’t really want to use lily pads because I knew that’s what everyone would be expecting. I LOVED the look of the wood and it still gave the feel of the frog being in a pond.”
This is what Valerie said about planning the party- “I was asked to style a gender neutral baby shower for a Momma-to-be, with the shower date planned for mid-February. Knowing that this is typically just about the WORST weather month of the year in frigid Chicago, we decided to brighten up with the mood with the fun and always cheerful “You Are My Sunshine” theme. It’s gender neutral, cheerful and modern. So fun. As for colors, well…there’s just something neat about yellow and gray together. It’s such a fun, cheerful, modern combination. That was our starting point. The guests were treated to a lovely catered lunch, lemonade , champagne with fresh berries and a table full of delicious sweet treats. It was a lovely, “SUNNY” celebration!”
This is what Maja said about planning the party- “This Baby Shower was a very special event for my client who is awaiting the birth of her first grandchild. She had the pleasure of throwing this baby shower for her daughter-in-law. As the gender is unknown, we chose to use neutral colours.
The theme of the Baby Carriage was chosen, with gorgeous red and soft teal and soft aqua tones to complement. Izabela from Bela Designs is amazing at what she does and came up with the perfect design to set the tone for the Baby Shower. She then created all the labels, backdrop, favour box stickers, buntings and personalised chocolates for the event.
I set up the main dessert table, as well as a drink station and a favour box stand. The drink dispenser contained a mocktail with fresh strawberries made by my client for the event. The cake, cupcakes and cake pops were made by Cakes by Josephine and complemented the theme perfectly. I wanted something special for the macarons made by Macarahrah. They featured little Baby Carriages made from fondant. The baby carriage cookies were created by My Sweet Obsession and were a gorgeous red colour that just popped on the table and complemented the whole “Baby Carriage” theme. The whole table was hit!”
