Baby Shower Theme: Rubber Ducky – Food & invitation

10 Sep

Rubber Ducky, You’re the One…

The rubber ducky baby shower theme is great for a shower of any size. It can be used and adapted for a boy, girl, multiples, or a gender-neutral shower.

Coming up with ideas for food for any type of engagement can seem tedious. To get the ball rolling, here are a few fantastic ideas for baby shower food that follows the Rubber Ducky theme:

  • Cake. A must have no matter what, a rubber ducky cake sets this shower apart! Get creative with molds, fondant, and flavors. The one pictured above is two layers – a round cake as the base/bottom covered in fondant, and a molded ducky as the top layer.
  • Cupcakes. A nice alternative to cake, or a wonderful accompaniment, cupcakes are easy to make and fun to decorate! The ones pictured to the right are chocolate with a mint filling, topped with butter cream icing (colored blue), chocolate balls (bubbles), and rubber ducky cake toppers.
  • Rubber Ducky Punch. As lovers of pinterest know, creative recipes are endless, and punch is no exception! Float rubber duckies on top for a nice, “awwing” touch!
  • Tea sandwiches. Grab a ducky shaped cookie cutter from a local craft or cake store, and use it to cut bread for sandwiches. Once you have the cute bread, the options for fillings are endless!
  • Cookies. Using the same cookie cutter as did for the tea sandwiches, make sugar cookies. Use colored icing for the finish, along with treats and candies for the ducky’s eyes. Adding blue-colored candy along the bottom of the cookie would give the feel of the ducky being in water/bubbles.

Invitations

Baby shower invitation should be simple and fun, but give the recipient a little mystery about the event and an idea of the theme. Hint at the theme, or make it very apparent, whichever the mom/host prefers. Use craft tools and supplies to create ducky shaped invitations, print some off of the internet, or find some from the local grocery or hobby store. If wanting to be subtle, use traditional invitations (or make/print some), and let the theme come to life through simple words. At the top, it could read: “Rubber Ducky, You’re the One. Little Boys/Girls are Oh-So-Fun!”, “Quack! Quack! Let’s Celebrate Baby Jack!”, or “Rub a dub dub. There soon will be a new baby in the tub!”

You’ve Made This Shower Fun!

  • More ideas to make a rubber ducky baby shower even more spectacular are to display a rubber ducky diaper cake, an inflatable ducky, or to have the mom wear something “duckish” during the shower, like a ducky shirt or a funny ducky robe (over her clothes).
    It’s a Rubber Ducky world, and this world is ready to celebrate another little one! Have fun, congratulations, and feel free to post below about experiences and ideas.
