Celebrations :: Baby Shower – Science and Unicorns

This past spring, I was honored to organize a baby shower for a smarty-pants gal, Adria. Said lady was growing a babe, finshing up her PhD and preparing for her law school entry this fall. Hmm..what else can she do to make her an over the top mom? What baby shower theme could we use to capture Adria’s fun personality, science background and babies? Unicorns, of course! Here are the steps from inspiration to actualization for a simple yet fun baby shower.

Mood Board

Beaker Breaker: Modern twist on floral glassware will make for a great centerpiece. {Urban Outfitters; $24}

Cupcake Chemistry: Wrap up your little cakes with these clever cupcake wrappers {Jenny Wenny’s Flickr}.

Unicorns are Real: To incorporate the love of Lisa Frank: glitter, unicorns and ridiculousness was required in some form {Google Images}.


I recruited a talented artist ::enter Regina from Cereal Saturdays:: to design the invitations. Add several layers of textured cardstock, silver cord and confetti and VOILA. Science themed baby shower invites are ready for the journey through the postal maze.

Pictures from our Science-themed Baby Shower 

One of the party guests framed the sparkly invitation for the honored mama.

Paper Straws: Compostable paper straws with science themed sayings like, “C2H2OH free zone”, “Unicorns are scientifically proven” flags

Best Wishes Banner: Congratulations is composed of elements from the periodic table. To create a more personalized banner, incorporate words that are meaningful to you.

Mr Roboto: What is a party without delicious robot coated sugar cookies. This fabulous contribution was brough in by a party guest.

Science-y Centerpiece: A large graduated beaker was used instead of the traditional glass vase to help center the banner and decorate the present table. Pomettes flanked the curly willow branches for some added interest.

It was a fun shower and I am glad the guests and mama-to-be had the time to gather together and celebrate such a wonderful moment before baby arrives. What is a unique baby shower theme you’ve seen/attended?


So adorable!!!! 😀
