35 Charming Teddy Bear Baby Shower Ideas
Have you ever considered a teddy bear baby shower? It is the perfect theme for the special baby boy or girl. Many people enjoyed teddy bear baby showers to obtain the most memorable moments. Teddy bears are soft, cute, and huggable for any age, especially for your family. This type of baby shower is a brilliant idea to welcome a special mom-to-be and her baby with a warm surprise.
Teddy Bear Baby Shower Decorations
Even though many teddy bear-themed baby showers focus on the color blue, you can choose to use whatever colors you want. Balloon arches are an adorable and fun idea to welcome guests or draw attention to a certain area. You can use blue, pink, yellow, or any colored balloons you want to create your arch and you can even make it yourself! Some color schemes you can think about for your teddy bear baby shower are the common blue and brown. This is great for a baby boy.
Neutral tones such as tans or creams can be a beautiful idea. If it’s a girl, go for a medium-toned or light pink to go well with the general brown color of teddy bears. You may not know what the gender of the baby is, in this case, it’s good to go with a color like yellow. Yellow is neutral and goes well with brown. You can also go for your own color scheme and choose whatever colors you want. Make sure you are taking the location of your baby shower into consideration when planning the colors. There are no rules with what you can or can’t do and that’s the fun part!
Banners are another common but suitable decoration for your teddy bear baby shower. You can purchase a banner online or make it homemade. Include whatever colors you want and it’s easy to customize them to say anything. It’s also a cute idea to add pictures of teddy bears on the banner to tie it into the theme.
3. Table Decor
Table decor is super important for any event and it’s a place to let your creativity shine. Try having a stuffed teddy bear as your centerpiece with a bow that matches your color scheme. You can also do flower vases with little teddy bears added to the bouquet to add a subtle touch to your theme. Also, add napkins and place settings that match your colors and also add some texture. Add a runner with some confetti or little teddy bear cutouts scattered around for a playful touch.
4. Rose Teddy Bear
A rose teddy bear is a perfect way to incorporate the theme while also adding flowers. Rose teddy bears are bouquets of roses that are shaped just like teddy bears. They are classy and colorful, making them the perfect item to add to your teddy bear-themed baby shower.
One thing you always need at a baby shower is balloons. Whether you choose to make a balloon arch-like mentioned in the decoration section or want to just have them scattered about, balloons undoubtedly create a party atmosphere. The good thing about balloons is that they come in every color and all different types of shapes. You can even buy teddy bear balloons that would add a perfect touch to your baby shower.

Add to the atmosphere of your baby shower by using pom poms and lanterns for good aesthetics. You can purchase them to be in the colors of your theme to fit right in. These are two easy additions that are both useful and reusable!

A teddy bear-shaped cake would be an awesome showstopper and would be adorable. If you’re a creative baker you can even make a teddy bear cake yourself or have a bakery make one for you.
