A fun theme can make a baby shower even more unforgettable. Whether you’re into a more minimal baby shower, or an elaborate baby shower theme, we’re constantly adding new ideas to our blog to help perfect this special occasion. You can find over 120 baby shower themes to choose from to decorate your online baby shower website; our Hawaiian baby shower theme is our latest addition!
Aloha Baby Beach Shower
For expecting parents who are either native to Hawaii, or just love everything about the beautiful island state, an aloha baby beach party is a wonderful theme for a shower. We’ll cover a range of ideas to help create a relaxing and beachy atmosphere for your guests.
Hawaiian Baby Shower Themed Website
For expecting parents who have family and loved ones out-of-town, virtual baby showers are a really helpful add-on to your in-person event. With a virtual shower, not only are details such as the registry items and baby information locationed in one place, your themes and invitations can be personalized just like an in-person shower. We offer a ready-to-go and personable Hawaiian baby shower themed website, where you can fully edit the color palette, fonts and theme background for just the right look.
For famiies that are adding a virtual aspect to their in-person shower, we have a built-in invite system where invitations are sent via email as well as text/sms with the luau theme of your choice. Additionally, these invitations can go to an unlimited number of guests and be used as an email-sending feature too, for important updates.
A classic invitation is surfboard-shaped with colorful beachy graphics. Think in awesome shades of pinks, oranges, and blues, and don’t forget to add in the shaka (a sign otherwise known as the ”hang loose” symbol associated with surfing, surf culture and the spirit of Aloha).
Aloha Shirt Invitations
Another invitation style we recommend is an aloha shirts card (often seen all around the island where tourists travel). Whether these are miniture-ornament sized or normal card size, aloha shirts with hints of native flowers of Hawaii or ocean waves are sure to delight your guests.
To help set a chill mood at the baby shower, we recommend setting up animated digital invitations featuring a beach scene and soothing wave sounds.

Sand and Shell Tablerunners
A beach baby shower isn’t complete without a hint of sand and clam shells! Create a tablescape using sand and shells to enhance a truly beach-themed space.
Beach Umbrella Table Centerpieces
Beach umbrella centerpieces will make everyone think they’re at the beach! We encourage selecting colors that match the rest of your decor, or just the classic rainbow type.
Ocean Inspired Balloon Arch
A balloon arch can truly light up a baby shower. If you’re considering an arch, we recommend creating a balloon arch in shades of blue and green to mimic the beauty of the ocean.
Grilled Seafood Station
If it fits within your budget, a seafood grill station offering shrimp, scallops, crab and fish, and other succulent seafood is a fabulous option for an aloha baby beach shower. Guests will surely be transported to the island with a lightly charred, delicious seafood-filled display of delight!
Beach Picnic Baskets
An adorable idea is to offer individual picnic baskets filled with snacks, sandwiches and sweets, just like a picnic! A few local ideas to introduce guests to the taste of the island include spam musubis, japanese rice crackers, tropical fruits and hawaiian rolls.
Ice Cream Sundae Bar
If the baby shower is happening on a hot day, we love the idea of an ice cream sundae bar with tropical toppings, like pineapple, cherries, and lilikoi powder. Not only will kids love this, we’re sure parents will too!
Personalized Beach Towels
Beach towels are a wonderful gift to offer guests. They will think of you and your little one everytime they use it, and who knows? It may even encourage them to plan their own vacation to the beach!
Branded Sunscreen and Sunglasses
One can’t go wrong with baby shower-branded sunscreen and sunglasses as favors! Not only will these be truly admired and enjoyed, but they also serve as a reminder for guests to protect themselves and their little ones from sun exposure.
We also love the idea of giving guests beach-themed photo frames to remember the special day by! Some ideas for frames might be ocean waves, clamshells or ocean-related quotes.
Hawaiian Garden Party
A second theme we love is a serene garden party with a charming Hawaiian twist. To paint a picture, this could involve tropical floral decorations, garden games, and a light, fresh menu.
Floral Watercolor Invitations
Floral watercolors make for an elegant invitation idea. We recommend invitations with handpainted borders of flowers like birds of paradise and orchirds painted in soft colors.
Hawaiian Garden Party E-Invites
Digital invitations with animated Hawaiian garden themes are also a great way to invite guests. Keep an eye out for bright, pretty birds of paradise, or a display of gorgeousl hibiscus flowers.
Seed Paper Invites
A modern take on invitations are eco-friendly invites made from seed paper that guests can plant! Vibrant, tropical biodegradable paper invitations are a fun and sustainable route to take.
Floral canopies create a beautiful focal point at a shower. Flowers like birds of paradise, hibiscus, orchid and plumeria could look absolutely gorgeous.
If you’re having a shower that runs later into the evening, we love the imagery of soft or colorful lanterns throughout the garden for a warm, inviting, celebratory glow.
Fresh Floral Table Runners
To give the shower a natural and elegant look, floral table runners are absolutely beautiful. Imagine a lush floral table runner of greenery and tropical flowers with heliconia, birds of paradise and orchids.
A garden party wouldn’t be complete without a fresh salad. We encourage creativity! How about a variety of fresh salads with tropical fruits and local greens, such as pineapple, mangos, and kiwis.
Grilled Vegetable Skewers
For expecting parents and guests who like healthy eating, a lovely option is to offer grilled vegetable skewers as a quick appetizer, or a side dish for guests.
Fruit-infused Water Station
Whether on a warm day or cool day, we recommend setting up a station with fruit-infused water in large dispensers for guests to refresh as they please!
Potted Plant Seedlings
A sustainable and creatively-cute choice for party favors are potted plant seedlings! We also really like this idea as a symbol of the expecting mama growing her own sweet seedling.
Floral Scented Soaps
Garden parties are nothing if not elegant. We love the idea of sending guests home with delicate floral-scented soaps with made with hints of pineapple, guava, gardenia or jasmine!
Customized Garden Tools
Last but not least are customized garden tools.These are unique, practical and playful party favors, a great way to inspire guests and any little ones to garden together!
A Hawaiian-themed baby shower brings unique joy and beauty to this very special celebration. From choosing a radiant palette of colors for the decor, to deciding on the perfect take-home gift, these little details are so fun and important to consider.
