A fairy tale baby shower is so much fun to plan because the inspiration is endless and the result is gorgeous! Even though we chose a princess theme, you could most certainly throw a little prince baby shower that’s just as fun and adorable.

Style Story: Fairy Tale Baby Shower

Once upon a time…
Fairy tales are filled with songs, rhymes and phrases worth quoting but this one really tops them all. It’s absolutely magical and fits so beautifully into any baby shower. We’ve chosen the Fairytale Beauty Baby Shower Invitation to introduce this princess shower theme with its flourishing border and dreamy saying at the top. We love the idea of incorporating “once upon a time” into your baby shower decorations as well, like the shiny gold sign shown here.

in a land far, far away…
A fairy tale shower deserves to be somewhere pretty and whimsical. Whether that place turns out to be a gazebo in your back yard, a nearby garden or the community room at your local library, make sure whatever location you choose has the right ambiance for something as sweet as a fairy tale baby shower. The parasols and paper lanterns hanging within the garden setting shown above are perfect for adding some simple yet fanciful décor to your surroundings. Create a sparkling backdrop with strips of fabric wherever the mother will be opening gifts and every photo taken of her will be picture-perfect.

there lived a princess.
Make the mother feel like her little girl is the Belle of the ball even if all she knows is the feeling of her little dancing feet! You can come up with all kinds of cute table centerpieces like the teacup with sweet baby’s breath and frog prince display shown here. The glass milk bottles and pink striped straws are another great idea for adding color and style. We love the finishing touch of Baker’s twine with a single carriage charm. Imagine serving these pink cake pops with gold glitter dust. They’re so perfect, Tinkerbelle herself would be proud!
