A baby shower deep freeze theme party is an especially great idea for those who are hosting a baby shower! Whether it’s your first, second, or even third child, be sure to host a baby shower deep freeze party that your friends and family will never forget! It is important to make sure you have some fun and exciting games that you can play with your guests. So we’ve come up with a list of wonderful cold themed activities to do at icy parties! Below you’ll also find all your icy party food ideas for the perfect menus and decor! As long as you focus the party’s attention on the glowing couple, it won’t fail to amaze!
Baby Shower Deep Freeze Theme Party Décor
Since you’re throwing a Deep Freeze party, colors such as blue, white, and silver will probably fit the chilly theme the best.
No Deep Freeze party feels complete in regular party clothing! Blast the air conditioning in your venue and ask all your guests to come dressed in their best winter wear. Keep extra thick coats, scarves, and beanies on hand in case one of the guests forgets to dress up and starts feeling like they may freeze in the cold!
3. Decorative Snow
The beautiful yet icy winter snow that turns every cold December night into a magical wonderland, is an absolute essential at any Deep Freeze party. You could create your own origami snowflakes from papers of shades of blue and white and hang them up on your walls for an inexpensive decoration idea. You could even buy beautiful and shimmery strings of snowflake streamers and use them to glam up your space. Twist these snowflake streamers with golden fairy lights and line your ceiling with these decoratively, to give an aesthetic glow to your party. Find more party supplies here.
4. Decorative Lights
Use your creativity in making the party’s light source a decorative one! Replace your regular lamb shades with some that are of different colors. You can also replace your light bulbs with some colored ones in order to create a certain ambiance. If you are hosting a baby shower, you could even center this theme around the sex of the baby. For example, if the baby is to be a girl, use pink light bulbs, along with pink lampshades!
5. Balloon Fest
Use balloons that appear to be frozen, such as icy blues or pearly whites! If you are hosting a baby shower, you could match the balloons with the baby’s gender, such as pink for a girl and blue for a boy. If the baby’s gender is unknown or a surprise, use balloons that are bright green or yellow. These will look great if you pair them with white balloons!
6. Snowy Character
If there’s going to be children at your party, putting up posters and cutouts of beloved snowy animated characters such as Elsa and Anna from Frozen will be a great way to make them feel welcomed!
7. Flower Accents
Fill lovely vases with colorful blooming flowers. This decoration will bring life to the party, as well as saturate the room with wonderful aromas. If you are following a color scheme, be sure to match your flowers, as well.
8. Pleasant Aromas
Place multiple scented candles around the party area. Choose scents that correspond to this theme. For a baby shower, use scents that will create a tranquil atmosphere, such as cherry blossom or coconut hibiscus. For any other party, use wintery scents, such as sparkling cinnamon or hazelnut.
9. Baby Delivery!
For a baby shower, hang pictures or decorations with storks on them! A fantastic idea is to purchase a life-size cutout of a stork and use it as a decoration for the party area or for your mailbox to welcome your guests!
10. Baby Toys
Use baby items, such as pacifiers, baby bottles, rattles, and bibs as decoration! What looks great is tying several pacifiers and rattles to a ribbon and hanging it from the walls or ceilings. Fill a vase with baby toys and use it as a centerpiece for your table! Just some ideas, but the possibilities are endless!

Baby Shower Deep Freeze Theme Party Games and Activities
12. Leaning Nappy Tower
Ask each of your guests to bring a package of nappies. Divide the guests into groups of two or more, and challenge them into building a tower with just the nappies! The group who is able to build the tallest tower wins! The parents can then keep them all for when the baby comes. Be sure to ask the guests to bring nappies of different sizes so that they will fit the baby when they start to grow!
13. Ice Cube Melt!
Ask your guests to form a circle. The game begins by passing an ice cube around the circle. The object is not to let the ice cube melt in your hands! As it gets smaller and smaller, the game gets all the more exciting! The person who is left with a puddle of water in their hands instead of an ice cube is out of the game. Continue playing this until there is only one person left! This is sure to make your deep freeze party extra icy by giving the last person standing a Deep Freeze themed prize!
14. Baby Toys
All you need for this game is one of those plastic shape toys that babies have where they must insert shapes into their corresponding holes. Have your guests take turns trying to fit all the shapes into their corresponding holes within a time limit! Add a blindfold in order to make it more exciting! To keep it within the Deep Freeze themed party activities list, add in some frozen shapes!
15. Delectable Treats
Lay out several different unlabeled jars of baby food. Guests are only allowed to taste, smell, and look at the contents of each jar while they try to guess what flavors they are! The person who can guess the most correct flavors is the winner! Ideas are endless; you could even freeze the baby foods to give that cold effect when trying!
16. Nappy Pin Mania!
This game has only one rule, not to say the word “baby” throughout the entire party! Each guest must pin a nappy pin onto their shirt. If a guest makes the mistake of saying “baby”, then the person who heard them can remove their own pin and place it next to their original pin! The guest with the nappiest pins at the end of the party becomes the butt of the joke! All shower parties will get a kick out of this game.

As a joke, you might want to provide your guests with a fluffy robe so they can “avoid the cold!” These can be worn at the party in order to emphasize the deep freeze vibe which they can later take home as party favors.
25. Icy Cubes!
Purchase unique ice cube trays for your guests. Be sure to choose some that have funny designs or shapes. You can also use some of these molds for ice-shapes to be served with drinks at the party.
26. Chilly Packs!
Give your guests some ice packs that will brighten up their day! Choose some that are very vibrant or that have fun patterns. These will not only incite laughter but will likely be useful in your guests’ homes.
Pro-Tip: Frozen Gifts
Instead of having your guests bring material gifts to your baby shower; ask them to prepare some home-cooked meals for you. Store these in the freezer because they will be very useful when the baby comes. You will be especially busy during the first months, so these frozen dinners will come in handy when you don’t have the time or energy to cook yourself food!
There’s a lot you can do to spice up your frozen baby shower. It’s very important to make sure you have some fun games and activities you can play with your guests, which is why you should absolutely refer to our tips! What is more, our list of chilly party favors, décor, and menu ideas will help you plan an epic Deep Freeze party that your friends will always reminisce excitedly about.
