Horse Baby Shower Invitations, Rocking Horse Themed Decorations and Menu Ideas

Rocking horse baby shower invitations are a classic theme for baby showers rating right up there on the list with teddy bears and baby duckies. But I would like to share a few, more unique and sophisticated horse themed baby shower ideas with hostesses who would like to explore equestrian options beyond rocking horses.

CAROUSEL HORSES
The carousel is the centerpiece of any amusement park, circus or county fair. But these beautiful be-jeweled ladies of the carnival would be gaudy beyond all redemption if it were not for the elegant horses making their rounds in time to the calliope music.

If a baby girl is expected this horse baby shower theme is the feminine counterpart of the rocking horse baby shower. Carousel horse baby shower invitations will be feminine and easily adapted to any color scheme.

KENTUCKY DERBY SHOWER IDEAS

CASUAL
The casual version of this celebration will be the perfect co-ed shower for late April or Early May when the weather is perfect for a BBQ. The guys will love that the dress is casual just like a tailgate and the kids will love playing horseshoes, beanbag toss and if the weather is warm enough they can have a dip in the pool or play under the garden sprinkler for entertainment.

ELEGANT
A slightly more formal version of the Kentucky Derby baby shower theme would be a silks theme that is announced using racing horse baby shower invitations featuring stylish ladies wearing their sunhats or jockeys riding their horses. Indicate to your guests that they are to be presented Red Carpet Style with the ladies wearing their favorite silk scarves and the gentlemen wearing ties with patterns.

DECORATIONS
And don’t forget to polish the antique, silver julep cups as this is the ultimate horse theme baby shower for racing fans who are fans of elegance. Make your own Kentucky Derby horse baby shower decorations by hanging flags at the entrance to the shower venue or streaming strands of silks using nylon fishing line, construction paper, and tape (similar to prayer flags).

THE MENU
The menu for the racing horse theme shower should include tasty southern dishes and beverages served in colorful dishes.

FREE PRINTABLE HORSE BABY SHOWER INVITATIONS
If you find your party running over budget and need to make your own invitations, there are a few websites with printable horse baby shower invitations but watch out because they can end up being more expensive than pre-printed horse themed baby shower invitations! In my experience free, printable invitations rarely have the wording or theme right and they just come out looking cheep and cheesy unless you’re a whiz at graphics and in that case you can certainly design your own. However, if you’re just looking for a way to save money (and printer ink), you can simply fold card stock or construction paper in half and then decorate it using horse stickers in your color scheme.
