You can also link your menu items to different nursery rhymes. For examples, you can place deviled eggs on a platter, then set a brick in the center of the platter and perch a toy Humpty Dumpty on the brick. Or you can salute Mary Mary Quite Contrary with a vegetable tray and the man that lives on Drury Lane with a basket of muffins. You can also serve punch in a galvanized bucket for Jack and Jill and hot tea for Polly Put the Kettle On.
Rubber Duck ThemeThis is probably the easiest theme to find ideas for. There are several different duck shaped cake pans that you can get. Small rubber ducks or rubber duck bath toys make easy cake or cupcake toppers.
When purchasing charms or making favors, be sure to purchase or make a few more to be used as decorations for the cake. Shower cake decorations can also be found consistent with your theme. Be sure to size these items so that they fit on the sheet cake or cup cakes nicely.
It's a simple approach that's consistent with mama's preferences and the shower party theme:
(1) keep the cake base simple, sheet or cupcakes;
(2) use store-bought cake mix and frosting;
(3) incorporate favors and charms being used for the shower as baby shower cake decorations;
(4) purchase cake decorations that complements your shower theme. Voila - there you have it.
It's sure to be elegant, tasty, and no party-hostess' sanity was sacrificed for the good of the shower.
