Baby showers are made for FUN! We get to welcome a sweet new life into the world and celebrate with family and friends. Recently I hosted a baby shower for a new baby boy and his happy family. After buying a gift-wrapped blue polka dot cake, blue plates and matching polka dot napkins, I searched for a theme to go with these neutral building blocks. Wait a minute….blocks. After finding a stash of vintage wooden blocks in a cabinet at home (yes, I forget I have stuff like this), an idea hit me. Dick and Jane, my beloved school readers! As a veteran homeschooling mama, I have plenty of school stuff around, so a theme was born: a vintage, school-themed Dick and Jane baby shower!

With a homemade card for the siblings’ names:
Everybody loves a party, and a theme party with details to notice and atmosphere to enjoy is the icing on the cake. Your Dick and Jane Baby Shower would look completely different, and that’s part of the energy of the event. Welcome to the world, Baby James!
I bet you’ve put on some creative baby showers. Share your theme and tell us about it!
