#DisneySide Baby Shower Decorations

15 Comments

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail. Enjoy the ride as we throw a virtual baby shower for one of our members. I just love parties and party planning! And baby showers, well…that’s just such a special time to celebrate the mama-to-be.

I’ve culled a sweet collection of Disney-inspired gender neutral baby decor decorations that will have everyone oohing and ahhing! Whether you choose a particular Land or a favorite character, there is so much creativity out there to make this a party everyone will remember.

I love Etsy for the adorable handcrafted and unique items. I also love to support small business! The Disney Store online has some wonderful baby items as well as decor that can be tweaked for use at a shower.

And of course, if you can’t buy it you can always get crafty and make it yourself! Pinterest has a wealth of party crafting ideas. Just have fun with the theme and let the ideas flow. Nobody will love it more than the new mother!

I love the idea of decorating for a baby shower with Disney items you already have or using items that can be re purposed for the baby’s room later!

Set the theme at the front door with a gorgeous Disney themed wreath.

Set up a guest book for visitors to leave well wishes for the mama and new baby. Love this recycled Bambi Little Golden Book Guest Book.

The large lanterns hanging over the Mad Tea Party near Alice in Wonderland at Disneyland is one of my favorite areas of the Park. Buy lanterns or make your own with craft paper to string up overhead.

Baby’s first Mouse Ears make a sweet table decoration and could also double as a guestbook (have guests sign their name with a white Sharpie pen).

This precious Dumbo Thumbprint Guestbook is so sweet and makes the perfect nursery decor after the party! Leave a stamp pad for guests to mark their thumb and a Sharpie pen for them to write their name.

A Disney party should always include Mickey and Minnie and these retro-designed plush are precious! Set them up on the gift table and the mama-to-be can take them home with her for the new baby.

 

Find an old book (or print vintage looking paper found online) to create an easy bunting, like this sweet Peter Pan version.

With a bit of foam core board, some paint, Exacto knife (and likely lots of time!), you could have this whimsical it’s a small world display!

Tabletop art work that can be used in the baby’s room after the party is a nice added touch (images from left to right: Lovely Little Fawn, Vivid Editions, Disney Store

  1. Wow! What a bunch of fabulous ideas! I think my favorite decoration is that great Disney character wreath! I wonder how hard something like that would be to make? Hmmm . . . My daughter Ashley bought an old Disney book that was converted into a journal (like the Bambi one you pictured) and used it as an autograph book a few years ago. The characters thought it was so cool (the Green Army Men especially!) I also love the little clothesline idea. Which is your favorite?

    • That wreath is pretty fabulous! I think I’ll have to buy one of the Little Golden Book autograph albums for my preschooler, he loves chatting with the characters. I think having the mouse ears to autograph is my favorite idea!

  2. Oh my gosh! So I totally want you to plan the decorations for my baby shower (SOMEDAY)! What good ideas! Will ya do it?😉

  3. I am totally obsessed with some of these ideas! I never thought I would go for such a thing, but the Dumbo/Fantasyland ideas at the top made my heart melt. And the Cheshire Cat is one of my favorites, so I think those ideas are just beyond awesome. Thanks for some great ideas!

  4. Oh my goodness! I love everything in this post. I think my favorite idea is signing the Mickey hat. Also, we had diaper cakes as centerpieces at my real baby shower and I literally just ran out a month after Ryan’s birthday. It was VERY functional and adorable!

    THANK YOU so much for participating in my virtual baby shower. Ryan and I send our thanks and pixie dust!

  5. I love all the ideas you collected. Makes me wish I had asked for a Disney themed shower back in the day. I also love using what you have for your party decor. Such a thrifty little tip! Which one of these ideas is your favorite?

  6. Oh these are all so adorable! I’m in love with the Small World display! So adorable! And all the Neverland goodies! So gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!
