2. Ice Cream Social

If you combine a gender reveal and baby shower together, this is one of our favorite ways to do just that in the summer. Play on the ‘what’s the scoop’ agenda and make it an ice cream social with friends and loved ones.

Combine pastel colors throughout a balloon structure and of course, have plenty of ice cream ready for your guests.

You could even have a DIY scoop station for everyone to get involved with. These gender reveal scoop cups are the perfect addition!

If you have access to a pool, throw a mermaid poolside party to welcome in your new baby!

16. Donuts!

Who doesn’t love donuts? If you’re not a fan of cake, a fun donut board is the perfect addition to literally any baby shower theme you choose.

17. Colorful Grazing Board

When it comes to choosing what food to serve, family style and grazing boards are definitely a favorite. Picky food in the summer makes it super easy, and you can get guests to bring something each with them from a list so you can make sure you don’t end up with duplicates.

If you go for a grazing board theme, keep things fresh and colorful for the summer. It looks great in photographs too!

Celebrating a summer baby? Which of these themes are your favorite?!
