It’s no secret that we love a good theme party around here. And when it comes to baby showers, more often than not, we’re working with a gender neutral color palette. A rubber ducky theme is classic, and one of my all-time favorites. It also works beautifully for a 1st birthday party (I know a certain little man in my house that LOVES rubber duckies!).
Our new rubber ducky party invitation is just darling, if I do say so myself! The front features a turquoise bubble background along with our charming ducky, and the back features an all-over ducky pattern.
Sometimes you need just a few details to make a party special. If you are hosting a party at a restaurant or club, you may only be able to decorate the tablesetting. I suggest lining the table with a polka dot patterned table runner, and creating graphic, festive centerpieces by lining up mini rubber duckies from Party City on white cake stands.
Surprise your guests with one coordinating dessert, such as a theme appropriate sugar cookie. Sweet Nelsons made these darling ducky cookies for us, and they were as delicious as they were adorable. I love gifting my guests with edible party favors, and think you can have a lot of fun trying to coordinate your candy to your theme. For this party, we used blue round candy from Candywarehouse.com to look like bubbles. And to dress up a basic cellophane bag – a little ribbon and our matching rubber ducky gift sticker go a long way!
