We Can Bearly Wait Teddy Bear Baby Shower Decoration Ideas | The Party Darling

We love celebrating new babies—it's a wonderful experience, especially in a mama's life. Whether it's their first or fifth child, every little bundle of joy is worth cherishing.

While there are countless ways to celebrate the arrival of a new life, we're here to help you contain your excitement with a "We Can Bearly Wait" baby shower. This adorable teddy bear baby shower is a classic theme and suits baby girls, boys, and gender-neutral occasions. The modern decorations and shades of brown and creams make it a versatile and trendy theme. You can even add your own accent color to make it unique to the mama-to-be.

We're welcoming a sweet baby boy for this setup, so we picked blue, brown, cream, and gold for our color palette. So keep reading for inspiration and decoration ideas to help you throw the most precious baby shower.

We Can Bearly Wait Balloons and Backdrops

Balloon garlands are an automatic "yes" for every celebration and occasion. We recommend picking 3-5 colors that match your theme to create a stunning balloon decoration. We made this balloon garland with pastel blue, sandy tan, chocolate brown, pearly white, and teal blue latex balloons. We even added baby blue and gold star paper fans to elevate our baby shower backdrop!

Baby Shower Balloons | The Party Darling

Believe it or not, we made this fringe background ourselves! First, we cut stripes out of a baby blue plastic table cover. Next, we cut white streamers and a gold fringe curtain to the exact dimensions. Once all the materials were cut and organized, we tied each piece to a string of twine, then hung it on the wall. If you want to see this in action, watch this Instagram video showcasing how we crafted this DIY fringe backdrop.

Baby Shower Bear Balloon | The Party Darling

As it's a teddy bear-themed baby shower, we couldn't resist including this charming Bear Baby Shower Balloon to complete our balloon garland. This sweet bear stands nearly three feet tall, holding a tiny star and crescent moon. It's a wonderful addition to your boy's baby shower!

Baby Shower Dessert Table Decor

Wooden "BABY" Letters | The Party Darling

We made our baby shower dessert table even more special by adding a wooden baby letter sign that spells "baby." The letters come in a natural wood finish, which can be painted or stained to match any baby shower theme. Alternatively, loved ones can sign letters with their best wishes for the baby or advice for the mom-to-be. Afterward, the letters can serve as decorative pieces in the nursery room.

"It's a Boy" Baby Shower Banner | The Party Darling

A sweet "It's a Boy" Banner is hanging off our dessert table. The letters are pale blue with gold trim and feature fluffy pom-poms on the strings surrounding the phrase. This banner can be used for a gender reveal party, a nursery room decoration, in the backdrop for newborn pictures, or even brought to the hospital to decorate the room when the baby is born. There are so many ways to use banners!

Now let's move on to the baby shower desserts! We used Baby Blue Baking Cups to spruce up delicious chocolate cupcakes. We found these cupcakes at a local grocery store, and the frosting matched our baby shower theme flawlessly! These pale blue snack cups feature gold foil stars and white crescent moons (they also come in pink for a girl's baby shower).

Chocolate Baby Shower Snacks | The Party DarlingThere's never a shortage of snacks at our parties! We stacked yummy chocolate-covered brownies in a pyramid on a small white cake stand. Providing more food than you anticipate is always essential, as this will ensure enough for everyone to enjoy without running out of options.

Baby Shower Snacks and Decorations | The Party Darling

We love creating dimension when decorating our tables. Cake stands are an easy way to level up (literally) your decorations. We stacked two cake stands on each other to create a focal point that draws guests' attention and adds height to the table. The bottom stand is filled with a snack mix of popcorn and Teddy Grahams served in baby blue food cups. In the center of the larger cake stand, there's a smaller one that holds a vase with pretty white flowers.

Baby Shower Cake and Cake Topper | The Party Darling

How yummy does this cake look? We picked it from a local bakery and added an "Oh Baby" cake topper to turn it into a simple baby shower cake. You can also personalize this wooden cake topper by painting and decorating it to match your theme. 

Custom Baby Shower Cookies | The Party Darling

Oh, baby! We can bear-ly wait to eat one of these baby shower cookies! Our fave gal, Objection Confections, made these adorable custom sugar cookies to match our theme with teddy bears, hot air balloons, overalls with a bear in the pocket, and even signs that read, "We can bearly wait!" If you want to add a personal touch to your event, you can find local bakeries that offer decorated sugar cookies.

We Can Bear-ly Wait Baby Shower Place Setting | The Party Darling

Since we're celebrating a baby boy, we wanted to incorporate a few shades of blue on the table. At each place setting, we sat a Pale Blue Dinner Plate underneath a Baby Blue Star Plate. These two hues of blue are also reflected in our decorations and balloons. 

Baby Shower Cup and Straw | The Party Darling

We provided everyone with awhite and gold pinstripe cup and a white and gold star straw inside. This reinforces the star theme and provides guests a stylish way to enjoy their drinks.

We believe in enjoying a hassle-free meal experience. That's why we've provided each person with white and gold reusable cutlery. This flatware set is environmentally friendly, dishwasher-safe, and can be reused at other parties. And to make cleanup even easier, we've included a folded gold star napkin, which adds extra decoration underneath the forks. 

Baby Shower Food Cups | The Party Darling

To enhance our teddy bear theme, we utilized more of the Baby Blue Baking Cups, filled them with Teddy Grahams, and scattered them on our table. 

Bear Baby Shower Confetti | The Party Darling

We found this precious bear-shaped confetti on Amazon with various cutouts of blue and brown bears and detailed teddy bears. It complements our theme perfectly! The table scatter also offers a beige and dark brown option, perfect for a gender-neutral baby shower. 

We Can Bear-ly Wait Baby Shower | The Party DarlingTo finish off our tablescape, we added beautiful white flower arrangements. Adorning the table with floral centerpieces brings the table to life and symbolizes the start of a new chapter worth celebrating.
