How to Host a Baby Shower like a Royal
A day every soon-to-be a mum will remember. From small family gatherings to fancy events, it seems that baby showers have gained popularity in the last few years. Planning a baby shower that will exceed the guests’ expectations can be challenging but is by no means impossible with the right entertainment!
Inspired by the imminent arrival of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first child, we were curious to explore how to host a baby shower like a royal! A royal-themed baby shower is a perfect choice if you want to experience the royal extravaganza in an elegant atmosphere. In our guide to hosting a royal baby shower, we cover everything from delicious food to spectacular shows to make sure everyone leaves with lasting memories of a baby shower fit for a future king or queen!
Adding a Luxurious Touch with the Decor
The first thing to consider when organising a baby shower is choosing the right venue. It’s important to take into account the weather and the number of guests when deciding between an indoor or an outdoor party. Regardless of the location, the right decoration will take your party to another level. Who doesn’t like flowers? Using fresh seasonal flowers as decor is a good idea to give your venue elegant and vintage vibes inspired by the British royal family. Luxurious floral arrangements are the perfect way to brighten up your party.
If you want to transform your event into an extravagant scene, then balloon decorations are for you. A big advantage of balloons is that they can be adapted to any colour scheme. Whether choosing the venue or the decor never forget to keep in mind the personality of the mum-to-be.
Opting for flower and balloon decor will make your royal baby shower theme complete
From Traditional Catering to an Elegant Tea Party
There's no royal party without exquisite food. Why don’t you treat your guests and the mum-to-be with a traditional and delicious afternoon tea party?! The colourful miniature cakes and freshly baked pastries are not only mouthwatering but also delightful to look at. These delicate treats will satisfy every sweet tooth and will be the icing on the cake at your royal-themed baby shower.
Cakes that are not just sweet but also represent traditions
Live Music that will Immerse You in Classical Melodies
Live music is a must if you want to create the perfect atmosphere. Acoustic strings will immediately lift an average party to an elegant event and the best part is that the genre is up to you as they can cover everything from classical to modern pop. If you want something outstanding, top off your royal party with a gospel choir just like the Duke and Duchess of Sussex did at their royal wedding.
Create an Enchanting Experience with Dreamlike Shows
Entertainment plays a key role in making your baby shower memorable. A good performance is eye-catching but it also has to fit into the theme of a luxury baby shower. You can never go wrong with ballet, right? It’s classic, elegant and breathtaking, especially if it’s performed in the air like the Flying Swan Aerial Show. If you’re looking for something more glamorous the Vintage Illusions Show will captivate every guest with a sophisticated and theatrical performance. This vintage themed magic show will wow both children and adults with dreamlike sorcery.
Performers wearing delicate tutus and feathers will attract guests’ attention

With these DIY activities, you can create memorable gifts for a newborn that parents can treasure forever. Making bunting decoration will add a British touch to your creative workshop. If you’re a fashion fanatic the next one is for you. To go with the royal theme a professional Paper Hat Artist can design and create the perfect fit for every guests’ outfit in only five minutes.
