Deciding the theme for your baby shower event is one of the most important choices you must make before planning your party. My next series of articles will explore the possibilities of several different themes from the food to the decorations. These are all just ideas to help you tap into your own creativity and get you started. This article is about using a rainbow baby shower theme.
Rainbows have been used a symbol for peace, love, freedom as well as a bridge from one place to another. When used as a baby shower theme, they can represent a change from going to a couple to becoming a family. The birth of a child is an exciting event in any marriage. The rainbow is a symbol of moving from one stage to the next.
Rainbow baby shower theme decorations can be found at party supply store or online. Streamers, piñatas, pompoms, tablecloths, tableware… You can even go a step further and give each guest a rainbow colored lei or boa to dress up the festivities. Below are just a few examples of the decorations and ideas available for rainbow themed baby shower.
