Get ready to save to your board. This year’s batch of baby showers were filled with gorgeous details and unique touches you’re not going to want to forget. From a storybook-themed soiree thrown for a stylish blogger to a camp out-inspired party that could only come from the Kardashians, these are the celebrations filled with creative, unique ideas you’ll want to steal when you’re planning one for yourself or a friend.

Kim’s Troop Beverly Hills Kardashian Camp Out

We had no doubt in our minds that Kim’s shower would be one for the books, but who’d have guessed she’d channel her inner Phyllis Nefler to recreate a Troop Beverly Hills-inspired camp out? Complete with tents, matching PJs, designer luggage and, of course, Girl Scout cookies, this definitely deserves a badge for one of the most fun baby showers of 2015.

Most Pinnable Feature: Those customized tents! Some even included a cozy sheepskin rug to relax on while sipping hot cocoa.

The Sunday morning party called for a pajamas-only dress code.


After a brunch complete with waffles, pancakes and omelettes, everyone got boxes of Girl Scout cookies.


Thanks to the kid-friendly theme, even big sister North got to join in on the fun.

Emily Henderson’s ** DIY Dream Day**

Crafty girls take note: This sprinkle held for Target’s Home Style Expert, Emily Henderson was a DIY lover’s dream. With watercolor stations to paint inspirational quotes, a bibs and onesies crafting booth, a terrarium-making favor station and a Polaroid guest book to commemorate the day, guests were kept busy from start to finish.

Most Pinnable Feature: It’s hard to pick just one, but if we have to, it’s got to be that amazing Make Your Own Terrarium station. Who wouldn’t want to go home with an adorable favor like that?

Emily, her husband Brian and their first-born Charlie stopped by the outdoor lounge for a cute photo op.


Guests got creative, making pretty watercolor bibs and onesies for the new baby.


How’s this for a unique favor? Guests clearly loved creating their own little terrariums to take home.


The perfect backdrop for the bar at a sprinkle? Umbrellas!


Magic ink revealed special messages for baby.


Before heading home guests had one last crafty task to take on—snapping a photo and signing the Polaroid guest book.

Haylie Duff’s Vintage Flower Fest

Actress and host of The Real Girl’s Kitchen Haylie Duff‘s baby shower had plenty of sweet, rustic details. Hosted by sister Hilary and their mother, Susan, the colorful shower featured handmade touches like DIY wooden signs and fun activities for guests to enjoy.

Most Pinnable Feature: That photo booth prop—an oversized painting of the couple with a cut-out for guests to “play” baby.

Guests could arrange floral bouquets in mason jars or make festive headwear, like Haylie and Hilary, who showed off theirs.


A carnival-inspired cut-out of Haylie and her fiance Matt made for some very funny photo ops.


Treats like mini cupcakes and cake pops complemented the sweet handmade decor.

Alyssa Renee’s Storybook Soiree

Photographer and blogger Alyssa Renee has a deep passion for telling stories through her photographs, so it only makes sense that her shower would honor the start of her son-to-be, Cohen’s story. The classic children’s book-themed shower was filled with some of the most beloved literary titles found in baby’s library. Our favorite part? The food! From Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham to Margaret Wise Brown’s _Goodnight Moon, _the brilliant selection of books served as the inspiration behind the shower’s inventive selection of appetizers, desserts and drinks. See if your favorite books made the cut.

Most Pinnable Feature: That very colorful Very Hungry Caterpillar fruit salad display.

Decor included chalkboard displays and a cute clothesline of baby outfits.


The menu perfectly matched each book, from deviled Green Eggs and Ham to a very fruity The Very Hungry Caterpillar.


A soft blue, white and gray color palette tied the whole day together.


What else for dessert but cupcakes and donuts? We also love the elephant cookie favors.

Molly Sims’s Spring Fling Sprinkle

Supermodel mom Molly Sims’s shower was fit for the season. Despite the weather (it actually rained for a bit on her outdoor shower), the beautiful decorations like those tasseled balloons and pops of color truly brightened up the day, as did the abundance of gorgeous flower arrangements from Bloom and Ploom. 

Most Pinnable Feature: The naked cake trend is still going strong. One look at Molly’s gorgeous confection and it’s not hard to see why.

One of Molly’s favorite gifts from the day? This travel system stroller and car seat from Nuna.


The chic naked layer cake from Annie Campbell was dressed in the day’s vibrant color palette.


Pink and yellow streamers were just right to welcome a baby girl.


A pretty balloon arch over the festivities spelled out Baby Girl Stuber.

Rachel Parcell’s Pink Peonie Party

Leave it to fashion blogger Rachel Parcell of Pink Peonies to style the chicest shower of 2015 (along with help from her sister Emily). Rachel described the theme for her special day as “fresh and feminine,” and she made her vision come to life through elegant decor, bright flower arrangements, gold accents and pops of pink adorning the white room. Like Rachel’s signature style,her shower was a sophisticated way to rejoice before the arrival of baby.

Most Pinnable Feature:  That hot pink chair Rachel sat in to open gifts—bonus points that it matched her gorgeous heels!

The guest of honor looked pretty in a white 5th and Mercer dress and hot pink Manolo Blahnik heels.


As a nod to Rachel’s blog, floral arrangements filled with—what else—pink peonies lined the tables. Kate Spade dishes and gold West Elm flatware added an extra chic touch.


If you had any doubt who the guest of honor was, look no further than the hot pink velvet chair.


Guests dined on mini grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup served in patterned Delft stoneware mugs from Anthropologie.


Pastel macarons and a ruffled cake were the perfect way to end the elegant afternoon.

Ashley Fultz’s Sweet Backyard Baby Bash  

The moment Ashley Fultz, who blogs at The Style Editrix, found out she was pregnant with baby no. 1 she started pinning ideas onto a baby shower board. Then with help from Poppy Richards Events she organized a beautiful outdoor party in her LA backyard. Lush white blooms, a DIY baby banner station, a flower crown bar and precious details like a tiny giraffe and lamb cake topper and candy-filled baby bottles made the day

Most Pinnable Feature: Those desserts! From the adorable onesie cookies and Rice Krispies baby blocks to those gorgeous artisanal chocolates, the sweets at this shower were extra special.  

Ashley and her fur baby Luella looked party-pretty in a floral crown and collar from The Crown Collective.  


Low but lush floral arrangements dressed up the tables and fun details like striped straws, wooden utensils and mason jars added a rustic touch perfect for the backyard.


A safari animal motif popped up throughout the party like on these cute onesie cookies.


These artful chocolates from Stick With Me Sweets are almost too beautiful to eat.


A mini banner with tiny bows and baby onesies topped off the simple cake from Susie Cakes.
