Baby shower idea: Birds and the bees

When you give your children “The Birds and the Bees” talk, it is normally when you tell your children where babies come from. This is a nice gender-neutral theme if you want to reveal the gender of the baby at the baby shower.

Colours: Yellow, black, grey brown & green

Elements that can be used in invitations:

  • You can use a honeycomb pattern
  • A tree branch with a beehive, bees and birds

Wording ideas for invitations:

  • “What’s the buzz? It’s a baby shower for mommy-to-bee”
  • “Liezl is expecting a little honey”
  • “What will it bee?”
  • “Mommy to bee is nesting”
  • “About to hatch”

Activity ideas

  • Wishes for ba-BEE: Each guest writes a name on a paper bird and ties it to a branch
  • What will it BEE? Let guests write down what gender they think the baby is on a piece of paper or on a black board. After the final results are revealed the mommy-to-bee can announce the gender.
