Here is the rest of the picnic baby shower plans in more detail. Because this is a coed shower in which it will be a large picnic, we didn't want a sit down meal with sit down games. Therefore here are the Games!


  • Painting Area- An area with blank onesie’s, t-shirts, hats, bibs with fabric paints and stencils for guests to paint something to ‘dress the baby’ in.
  • Invitation to tell guests to Come Pregnant (Dress like they are pregnant) Best Pregnant Outfit will win the big door prize (Picnic Table, birdhouse, Dad’s Idea!)
  • Birthday/due date (who's closest) - Award a prize to the guest whose birthday is closest to the due date of the baby
  • Raffle- Have guests enter a prize raffle by either purchasing a ticket with a ticket item, package of diapers or wipes. Then have a Chinese Auction where for every item they bring they get 10 tickets to put in a bag by the basket of their choice. Pull Tickets to determine winners.
  • Prizes will be themed baskets. So far I have three prizes, the one is a Candy Bar Cake, the other is a Money Shirt, and the third is a Cigar Basket! I plan to do a few more, but have not got around to it yet! (I will be posting these pictures on my website as well, so if you are interested in them, I will soon be selling them- visit
  • Blow up Ultrasound Picture and Matte for guests to sign.
  • I also found a background so that I can set up an area where guests can pose that came dressed pregnant for a picture! Great Memories!

Baby Shower Decorations:

My husband and I are having a baby boy, and to tell you the truth, we are not the Winnie the Pooh type. We love the idea of the ruggedness of a little boy. His nursery is already done up in Camo, and we thought, the Baby shower should follow suit.

I have purchased Camo Material, Ballons that Coordinate, and Plates and Napkins in Camo. The material we plan to make table runners and table cloths. I have also purchased Football Rubber Duckies to place in the Punch and on the table, and Camo umbrellas to decorate with since it is a "shower".


I love the way baby cupcakes look, and they are easily eaten and saved! I am doing coordinating cupcake colors to the camo tablecloth and have already purchased a cupcake cake tree to build the tiered cake.


I made my own Chocolate Candy Favors and have attached cute little sayings to them thanking guests for coming to the baby shower.

My Dad is a master carpenter so he is going to make the grand prize for the best dressed pregnant man or woman.


Family and Friends are all kicking in to make a dish, and it will be simple like hot dogs in saurkraut, ziti, cheesy potatoes, just basically like a graduation party type food.

We have rented a jumping inflatable for the kids that will be there, and I plan to purchase a pinata.

Gifts will not be opened until later on in the evening, those who wish to stay and watch are welcome to.

Oh, I love these baby shower ideas!

Katie, you're really a baby shower and your ideas are great!

I usually buy diaper cakes for the shower which can double as the centerpiece and gift basket. But I really like the cupcake you made for the party.

And I think the Painting game is very creative and I will use it for my next coed baby shower.

Thank you!
