How To Throw a Rubber Ducky Themed Baby Shower

by admin on August 23, 2012

Nothing conjures up memories of childhood quite like the iconic yellow “rubber ducky”. What better way to welcome a new little one into the world than to have a rubber ducky themed baby shower? Below you’ll find several ways to incorporate this cute lovable character into the festivities!
1. Decorations – Aside from the normal store purchased rubber ducky themed items like balloons and tableware, there are plenty of opportunities to get creative with this theme. Instead of plastering the room with ducky shaped items, opt for bright blue and yellow tablescapes. For example, have large white circular place mats (representing bubbles) blue plates and bright yellow napkins. The use of color still carries the theme across with out being overly bold.








2. Centerpieces – With the rubber ducky theme, DIY-ing your own centerpieces are a breeze. Several mirrors in varying size circles can be scattered across the center of your tables (carrying on the bubble motif). Fill a couple of round fish bowls with some water (get that bold blue by adding food dye), add in some floating rubber ducks and your done! You might be tempted to add some dish detergent for a bubble effect but these will soon dissipate.

3. Games – Continue this fun theme into your games by playing “Lucky Ducks” Purchase an aluminum drink bucket (similar in style to the type used at outdoor BBQs) and fill with water. In advance, compile a number of questions. Write several possible answers on the bottoms of store bought rubber duckys. Float the ducks in the bucket and have your guests come and select a duck. The one with the correct answer wins! You could vary this game by asking your guests to bob for the ducks, but this can get messy! Alternatively, you might want to purchase a baby tub that the mommy-to-be can use later!

4. Dessert – Whether you are opting to DIY or purchase your dessert, you can easily incorporate this theme into your tasty treats. DIY cake molds and cupcake toppers are available at local craft stores and are easy to use. Alternatively, if you are having your local baker make your cake, discuss the party theme with them in advance. If you don’t want a bold variation of theme on your cake, opt for a large rubber ducky as a cake topper and have a more subtle cake design.
