Dreamcatcher baby shower themes
This is the perfect theme if you have a classic style but want to give it an edgy twist. Nowadays there are lots of baby shower themes that don’t necessarily involve a book, movie or even a character, and one great example of this are the dreamcatchers.

Start of by making or buying dream catchers in different shapes and hues of the color you chose, they will serve as decoration in the walls and hanging from the ceiling. You can bake a cake with a doughnut shape and decorate around it with icing like a dream catcher. Lastly, a cool idea for an activity can be a “weave your own dream catcher” workshop.
For the mom who loves great weather, dreams of an island vacation and has a fun personality, one of the best and most popular baby shower themes these days is a Tropical baby shower.
