Asian Themed Baby Shower

by Dinah Wulf

My family and I are throwing an Asian Themed Baby Shower for my beautiful cousin, Maria. Because she was having a boy, I suggested doing the party in hues of blues and greens instead of the traditional red, black, and gold colors typically associated with an Asian theme.

Here are the centerpieces I came up with. I used Chinese take-out boxes in blue and green, and embellished them with coordinating ribbon, beads, and charms. I printed out Chinese characters for “mother”, “father”, “baby boy”, “family”, and “happiness” and glued each one to the front. I layered the characters in black scrapbook paper.

I filled them with goodies for the mother-to-be to take home and added a set of chopsticks that I happened to find in my junk drawer from Chinese take out a few weeks ago!

Here are some baby shower gifts that will fit nicely into these takeout boxes:

  • Baby socks
  • Newborn onsies
  • Bath Rags
  • Small Stuffed Animals
  • Travel sized baby toiletries
  • Small books
  • Baby Bottles
  • Pacifiers
  • Rattles
  • Small Toys

These were so fun and easy to make. Maria and her husband loved them and thought the creativeness was a nice touch.
