Are You Hosting a Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit Baby Shower?

The Beatrix Potter, Peter Rabbit Baby Shower theme is a very popular choice for the Mommy to be. Possibly, the new mom is decorating the baby nursery in the Beatrix Potter theme and wants to follow through with this theme choice for the baby shower. While the Beatrix Potter Baby Shower theme is one of the more difficult themes to organize, with a little bit of creativeness, it can be done!

I would like to help you coordinate the perfect Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit Baby Shower by assisting you in selecting the Invitations, Party Games, Decorations, Tableware and matching shower items. You will also find many decorative Peter Rabbit themed nursery items to consider as gifts for the Mommy and new baby!


A Brief History of Beatrix Potter

Helen Beatrix Potter was born on July 28, 1866, in Bolton Gardens, Kensington, England. She was educated at home and other than her brother, Potter's only friends were her animals. She had a deep interest in and love for all creatures and kept several as pets, including mice, frogs, bats, rabbits, and even a hedgehog.

Potter also showed an early talent for drawing. Her own pets as well as the animals she discovered while on vacation were often the subjects of her illustrations. Her governesses encouraged her to practice her drawing, as did her parents, who were also interested in art and occasionally allowed their daughter to accompany them to exhibitions.

In addition to writing and illustrating her books, Potter directed their production and design. She insisted that they be kept small to fit comfortably into a child's hands and that only a few words appear on each page. She also liked to challenge her readers now and then with a surprisingly sophisticated vocabulary in the belief that children delighted in learning new words. Potter took an active interest in the merchandising possibilities of her books as well, pointing out to her publisher the need to copyright her characters and suggesting games and other items that could be based on them.

"Beatrix Potter was a remarkable woman who triumphed over life's adversities. She transformed her struggles into stories that have fascinated readers of many different cultures for the entire twentieth century."

Decorating for the Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit themed Baby Shower doesn't have to be expensive. Find a small wooden wheelbarrow and fill it with carrots, cabbage and other vegetables. Use a watering can as a vase and fill it with flowers of your choice.

Definitely have a vegetable tray and include carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, etc. This will tie in nicely with the Peter Rabbit garden theme. If you have cupcakes for the guests, print out your own cupcake toppers and make them yourself. Have fun decorating and include a lot of rustic garden type items to complete the theme.

Beatrix Potter Decorative Items

It can be difficult to find the Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit cups, plates, napkins and related tableware. But they are still available for purchase at a few online stores. However, if you can't find the matching tableware, don't be disappointed. You can always use light blue, yellow and cream colored tableware.

Then simply add a few Peter Rabbit stuffed animals and some garden related items to tie it all together.
