Coming up with a boy & girl baby shower theme can sometimes be a challenge, but when I found out that my friends who are sisters were expecting babies at the same time (one with a girl and one with a boy), I immediately started brainstorming for a joint baby shower! Both of them love fairy tales, and since Sleeping Beauty was a mutual favorite, it became the inspiration for a Royal Baby Shower fit for both a boy and girl. I started by designing the printables with sweet prince and princess silhouettes and some fairy tale touches like the ‘Once Upon a Dream’ banner.
“Make it pink… make it blue!” The color palette was straight out of Sleeping Beauty with both pink and blue and some neutrals mixed in– Mint green and gold.
The cake decoration was as neutral as possible, and it was finished off with a cute crown candle holder I found at Hobby Lobby as a cake topper.
Both of the moms-to-be love crowns, and we used them throughout the shower on the beautiful cookies and handmade cupcake toppers.
Of course the Moms-to-be were treated Royally. No thrones but pretty decorated chairs were setup for each.
Each guest got one of our Baby Shower Bingo cards to fill out for gift opening.
Even the gift table was decked out in Royal Style with our printable banner design.
Our Prince and Princess party ideas would be perfect for a joint baby shower, twins baby shower or even a gender reveal party. You can download all of the printables in our Paperie.
