What do you get when two geeks have great chemistry? A baby! It also means it’s time to start planning an epic, geek-themed baby shower. Here are some ideas to help you with your quest.
Throw a Geektastic Baby Shower!
Planning a baby shower is really fun and I love seeing more non-traditional themes. When deciding to go geek baby, there are so many sub-themes available depending on the interests of the expectant parents. Are they Star Wars fans? Science nerds? Crazy for comics? The reality is, they probably like a mix of several things so finding a way to pull together multiple fandoms into your party is a fun challenge. I found so many great geeky baby shower ideas that I wish I had one to plan right now! Here are some of my favorite finds.
Robot Scratch Off Cards
Looking for a quick and easy way to get guests into party mode? How about these adorable Robot Scratch Off Cards
from Inklings Paperie on Etsy? Hand them out as guests come in or hand them out throughout the party. You can designate how many winning cards you want, but even the "System Error" is cute.
Chocolate Gaming Dice
Who wants to roll for chocolate? Can we say best geek gaming party favor ever? Make sure to save a special set (or two) of these chocolate gaming dice
from Think Geek for the mama-to-be.
Are Mom and Dad Doctor Who
fans? Then you must provide a tasty TARDIS. Little cakes, gelatin, chocolate... the flavor is bigger on the inside with this TARDIS gelatin mold
I've seen some pretty elaborate cakes, but they can be expensive and/or time consuming. This superhero cake
on Spoonful is easy to make and adjust for the mom-to-be's favorite characters.
Superman Soap Favors
No matter what geek theme you pick, you should be able to find the perfect soap favor at Sky Rain Soap on Etsy. These Superman soaps
caught my eye, but there is a wide selection from Daleks to R2D2s.
Superhero Printables Package
It's a bird, it's a plane... no, it's a baby! What I love about geeky themes is how well they work regardless of baby's sex. Owlie Powlie on Etsy offers two different color schemes for the superhero party pack
, which includes banners, photo props, food tents, water bottle wrappers, invitations, thank you cards and more!
Baby Jedi Padawan Cupcakes
Star Wars fan + baby shower = baby Jedi cupcakes! These are super cute and a total must if you're planning a Star Wars baby shower. Get the recipe and instructions from Just Jenn's Recipes
. May the Force be with you.
Star Wars Baby Shower Printables Pack
DIY Space Baby Food Jar Favors
These space jars are super easy to make. They are perfect to use for favors, centerpieces or a baby shower game. The jars picture are filled with a sugar scrub. Get the instructions to make these space baby food jar favors
at Horrible Housewife.
Mad Scientist Party
For the science lovers, you might want to go with a mad scientist theme. It's pretty popular for birthday parties, why not for baby showers too? Being a parent is an ongoing experiment anyway! I love the name tags in this mad scientist party pack
from Owlie Powlie on Etsy.
Test Tube Favors
Serving drinks in beakers and test tubes adds to the mad scientist theme. Or, fill these with Nerds candy for a fun favor! This colorful test tube set is available on Amazon
Geeky Cupcake Decorations
These cute glasses and bowties from Sugar Fox Shop
on Etsy are edible. Use them on cupcakes, cakes or even cookies for tasty geek chic.
