Polar Bear Shower Decoration Ideas

If it’s winter, nature already provides some beautiful decor! As for colors, stay neutral, but feel free to add some sparkle or bright hues that pop as secondary colors — like gold, blue, or pink.

For easy decorating, look no further than the Christmas decor section. Try to find decorative trees that are white, pinecones, and anything else that looks like it has a woodland theme with a winter twist.

A simple and cute centerpiece can be balloons surrounded by stuffed animal polar bears. You can also set up an easel near the table with winter or polar bear drawings.

The Perfect Month to Host a Baby Shower

Unsure of when you should host a baby shower? Most people agree that between six and eight months along is the optimum time to throw a baby shower.

However, there is not really a “right time” to have a baby shower.

The timing of a baby shower — even a winter baby shower — all depends on what works for you, the host, the family, and the mother-to-be.

You don’t want to set the baby shower too close to the baby’s due date, as the mom-to-be could be feeling tired and overwhelmed by that point. And, if you’re throwing a winter baby shower, you may have to consider the timing of the holidays.

Just make sure that any potential dates you have in mind for the baby shower work for key people involved, like close family and friends.

However, with a virtual baby shower, you have the added bonus of making it easier for guests to attend. They don’t have to leave their homes to enjoy the celebration, and the party can take place of a few days instead of just over a few hours.

What to Wear to a Winter Wonderland Baby Shower

The perfect outfit will be made simple with these tips, no matter what season it is!

1.) For a casual event, opt for a warm wool dress with tights and ankle boots. Not only will you stay warm, but you will look oh-so-chic at this winter wonderland baby shower!

2.) If you prefer to wear denim jeans, a sweater is the perfect complement. Plus, the spirit of the season lets you play with lots of details or embellishments. (But maybe keep the ugly Christmas sweater for another day, unless it’s encouraged by mom and dad-to-be!)

3.) For a more sophisticated winter wonderland baby shower, you may want to wear a skirt — either long or short (with tights). Put on a nice sweater and you are good to go!

Enjoy the Season of Angels to Honor the Arrival of Your Special Little Angel

We hope you have found some inspiration with the ideas in this list. Even though the season may get chilly and cold, it’s the perfect time of year to incorporate all of the sparkle, glitz, lights, and — most of all — the magic of the holidays into the best winter wonderland baby shower of the year.  

And the fun doesn’t have to end after your wonderful winter baby shower, either, as the forecast calls for a bright and sunny baby in the near future!

Hosting a winter wonderland baby shower is the best way to celebrate the coming little one, as all of the sparkle and festivities of this special time of year set the stage for a winter baby shower like no other.
