How to Throw a Tres Chic Parisienne Baby Shower

The Eiffel Tower. Croissants, baguettes and delicious macaroons. Paris is filled with wonderful sites and, of course, treats. While you may not be able to travel during your pregnancy, you can bring Paris to you in a whimsically elegant baby shower, filled with that je ne sais quoi. Simple touches and a sophisticated color scheme can transform any space into a Parisian Patisserie.

Mix lavender, dusty pink, pastel greens and antiqued golden accents to create a refined tablescape that will set the tone for a chic shower. Using a lace or embroidered tablecloth forms the first elegant layer of the table. Arrange monochromatic bouquets of roses in silver and gold vases down the center.  Use cake stands and trays to create varying heights on the table.  


Create a playlist of famous French singers like Edith Piaf to play during the shower. You will fill the space with authentic French tunes, automatically putting everyone in a Parisian state of mind.

Continue your Parisian theme with the most delicious French luncheon foods.  You don’t need a fancy French bakery in your neighborhood to cater the shower. Serve mini croissants filled with tuna salad, brioche rolls with roast beef, and baguettes with cheese for a vegetarian option.  You can easily find frozen, ready to bake or packaged versions of these French breads in your grocery store, and make homemade sandwiches that look and taste magnifique!

Take a French staple such as Nicoise salad, and compose individual servings for each guest by assembling the ingredients, including green beans, eggs, olives, and roasted potatoes, in small ramekins. Or arrange delicate fruit salads in small glasses for a beautiful and tasty display.

Charming paper goods tie everything together. Print place cards, menus, thank you notes and food flags with the same pastel motif to create another layer of elegance to the shower.  These small details help make the theme complete. 

Of course a shower isn’t complete without games! To bring some bilingual conversation into the room try a French/English matching game featuring delicacies from the Patisserie. 

Don’t forget to say merci to your guests for attending the shower.  Lovely gifts such as glittery Eiffel Tower ornaments and artisanal pastel mints packaged in simple woven treat bags are a perfect token and reminder of a day spent in a Parisian fantasy world.


Producing a baby shower with Parisian flair doesn’t have to be daunting. By pulling together stylish, delicate decorative touches, a refined color scheme, and splendid French savories and sweets you can make a tres chic baby shower.
