#DisneySide Baby Shower Decorations

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

I’m going to host a #DisneySide @Home Celebration!

I received a very special invitation earlier this week from Disney and MomSelect about hosting a #DisneySide @Home Celebration!

I love parties! I love planning parties! I love to host parties! And of course, I LOVE Disney, so this opportunity is a dream come true!


Last year’s hosts were sent party supplies including table coverings, plates, crafts, snacks & favors in a specific theme. There was even a rolling suitcase in the box! The contests of each party box are a surprise until hosts receive it so nobody knows yet what is in store for party hosts this year. This is my first opportunity to participate and I’m a’twitter with excitement.

I was given the theme of a “multi-generational” party so I’m not sure exactly what my supplies will look like or what they will entail. Some of the other hosts were given more specific themes including villains, princesses, Mickey & Friends or Cars. Can’t wait to see the box on my doorstep so I can start planning in earnest!

In the meantime, I’m Pinning #DisneySide inspirations on a Pinterest board I’ve called SHOW YOUR #DISNEYSIDE PARTIES & CELEBRATIONS. I’m filling it up with unique and creative party planning ideas to help me with my #DisneySide @Home Celebration.

         


Please check back (consider signing up for my newsletter) so you’ll see the reveal on the contents of my surprise box and later, the details from the party itself. I will also be sharing on my Facebook page, Instagram account and on Twitter. Come over and follow me!

I can’t wait to share, this is going to be such a zip-a-zee-do-da-day!
