Whether you're choosing a baby shower theme for yourself, a friend or a family member, it can be an overwhelming task. Where do you start? Trust me, I know there are a crazy amount of adorable themes, as I see them daily in my Pinterest feed. A great place to start brainstorming is another Pinterest favorite - nursery décor. Ask the mommy-to-be what colors, patterns or bedding themes she is going to use to decorate the baby's room. Often the hot nursery and baby bedding trends are popular for baby showers, so you should easily be able to find coordinating party supplies. Hooray! I picked three of 2014's nursery trends as inspiration for choosing a baby shower theme.

NAUTICAL // It doesn't get much more classic and chic than a nautical inspired theme. I love themes that allow you to play with fun textures. Sand, wood, rope and twine make decorating a nautical baby shower theme so much more fun!

FOX // This little forest fella is everywhere these days: clothing, jewelry, stationery, stuffed animals, cell phone cases, you name it. It comes as no surprise that Project Nursery predicts 2014 is looking foxy! My favorite thing about fox is that it's an equally adorable baby theme for a boy or a girl. For our Girl Fox baby shower theme, we paired bright orange with the Pantone Color of the Year - radiant orchid. Bring in woodsy accents like birch and other forest friends to give Mommy-to-be one trendy party.

GRAY CHEVRON // Chevron doesn't look like it's going away any time soon. That's because this timeless pattern is so versatile. Gray chevron is neutral, so it works fabulously for a boy shower, girl shower or a gender neutral baby shower. Add a pop of color to set the tone and bring the party décor to life.
