Whether it’s pretty pastels or a cute zoo motif, half the fun of a baby shower is choosing a theme. And Serena Williams really aced it, serving up a totally unique 1950s-themed baby shower at a diner.
Wearing poodle skirts and polka dots, the celebrity guests of the “Shake, Rattle and Roll” shower helped Williams and fiancé Alexis Ohanian turn back the clock for their baby, due next month.
“When you and your crew go so far back to the 50s. Even then they had your back,” Serena wrote in her Instagram caption. “@evalongoria @ciara @lala @kellyrowland @angiebeyince #shakerattleandroll2017 #babyO”
Ciara manned the jukebox.
La La Anthony channeled her inner Rosie the Riveter (a nod to the 1940s, but who’s counting).
Hair stylist Angela Meadows came as Lucille Ball.
And Ohanian made an appearance in a vintage leather jacket.
A theme that guests actually like? It’s a refreshing change of pace for a baby shower. But keeping them entertained is a separate challenge. If you want to go retro like Williams, we have three baby shower games that fit a 1950s and 1960s theme.

What you need: Paper, pens and a computer and printer or copy machine.
Before the party: Write a list of baby items and specific quantities (say, a box of 88 Pampers Swaddlers) on a sheet of paper and make enough copies for all your guests.
