Looking for ideas for baby showers if the baby arrives in a winter holiday season? Ho! Ho! Ho! It's fun and beautiful to twist Christmas party ideas into the celebration for mom-to-be's pregnancy if you just let the imagination flow.
When you search christmas baby shower supplies, there are tons and it may get utterly confusing trying to choose. Save time and start your search at these awesome Shower items for Christmas season:
If you're looking for just an idea ( such as an invitation design, table decoration or just the games) and not a complete theme, choose from the drop-down list below and you'll be taken to the appropriate category:
The winter shower invitation can be in the shape of winter items, such as snowman, snowflake, christmas tree, igloo, etc. And print plenty of baby cliparts on the cardborad cut out from these shapes. Then enclose snow-like confetti.
I love the design of Penguin Style card.
Another cool ideas for baby showers is to draw (or find pictures and clipart) of snomwen. Print out the mom's photo and cut out her face, and then place it on the body of a snowman. Have other snowmen in the picture, and the invitation can read: "Guess which snowman is getting pregancy?"
Sock Baby Invitation
One of the cutest Christmas ideas for baby showers. Use a white sock, add twig arms and a little hat for a snowman invitation. Have each sock represent a different milestone in baby's life to make milestone babies. Attach a tag to each baby for baby's "firsts": "birthday", "haircut", "tooth", "word", "step", and "day of preschool". Make and decorate a can for each milestone baby. Ask guests bring their invitation to your Shower and display babies in child's room - as she gets older remove and frame tags to keep a record of the firsts and the kid can play with the sock babies.
Or you can stuff colored toddler sock with poly fill up to point where cuff begins (here is where you tie off with ribbon). Then pull down sock cuff over the top of the stuffed section to form a hat, and glue a pom pom onto the tip. Tie another piece of ribbon halfway down the stuffed section to form head and boy. You can also add a face with fabric paint, and attach a tag onto the ribbon that includes Shower details. Now, cover outside of chip can with construction paper to write address of guest. Finally, place the invitation into chip can and attach tape-secured lid.
You can also write like this:
"Ho! Ho! Ho! A holiday delivery is on the way...but it's coming by stork - not Santa's sleigh! Instead of the traditional red and green, at the [parent's name] home, there is pink(blue)[baby's name] to be seen! So make sure you all come and join us yourselves."
White, blue, pink and silver make a gorgeous color scheme for the Christmas shower.
Start your decorations from hanging little snowflakes from the ribbons around white umbrella. Enhance the cold celestial effect by using plenty of white flowers, strings of white Christmas lights, new age music, and the scents of frankincense and myrrh.
One of the very special christmas ideas for baby showers is to decorate your party area with ceramic angles, angels in snowshakers, feathers, cotton batten, and stars made out of aluminum foil. You can also decorate several small Christmas trees in Blue and Pink lights and hang small baby items like rattles, small stuffed animals, bottles, etc., along with snowflakes.
Baby Candle Forest Centerpiece
What is the most important thing for a Christmas season? The snow of course.
Here are some wonderful Christmas ideas for baby showers that use three baby powder scented candles, holiday greens, and fluffy snow combine in a tabletop "candle forest".
Arrange 3 baby candles on a tray or platter and tuck springs of holiday greens between the candles. Then place a few branches of artificial holiday berries in the greens. And sprinkle a few handsful of artifical snow to hide greenery branch ends and risers.
Tips: If you like to use more odd number of baby candles, also use small bowls turned upside down to serve as risers for shorter candles.

When looking for fun ideas for baby showers that take place during the colder months, it's generally safe to expect to do something with some kind of snow involved! Snow is the perfect winter compliment, even if you are in a warmer climate area. Snow just adds a "coolness" to your Shower and here are some cool ideas:
Warm baby blanket treats - This idea may be in order for a winter shower. Start with soft lady finger cookies. Push an almond or a round little nut about a ¼ of the way down the cookie. Decorate with a sweet little icing bow, heart, or other baby-like design to look like the baby is wrapped in a blanket! You can even add a little face on the almond along with a curly-q to look like hair. These will be simply darling additions, and remind the mom-to-be to keep her little one soft and warm during the colder season!
The Food Table - Create a table display full of the tastiest little snowbabies that any of your guests have ever set their eyes on. You can use either cake balls that you make on your own or store made donut holes. Cover them in white icing and coconut to look like snowballs. Stack two on top of each other and secure with a toothpick to connect the top to the bottom. Pipe icing or use fruit leather to create a diaper on each bottom, and little faces on the top one. Wrap a strip of fruit leather around each neck to look like a scarf. Then, add a candy carrot to each for authentic "snowbaby" nose!
For favors, you can send guest off with little angel and snowflake ornaments with pink and blue ribbons. Other winter shower favors include:
