Baby Shower Blooms and Decoration Ideas
Rose Themed Baby Shower
You can never go wrong with roses. So elegant, so classic, rich with symbolism, and available in nearly every color. A rose-themed baby shower is elegant and sophisticated, especially if you go with a monochromatic color palette. Picture roses in various shades of white and cream, light peaches to orange, or light blue to medium and dark blue. Another look would be a color palette of soft pastels in yellow, peach, white, and green. If the mom-to-be is a fan of more bold colors, then decorate with rich pink, red, purple, and lavender roses. Just add a few gifts and delicious treats, and your work is done.
Sunflower-Themed Baby Shower
A flower as bright and joyful as the sign is a great way to welcome a soon-to-be new life in the world. It’s hard to be in the presence of fresh-cut sunflowers and not feel a boost of feel-good vibes. Plus, the yellow color works great for both boy and girl baby showers. Incorporating additional decor will be easy as sunflowers are a popular design. Pick up some sunflower napkins or sunflower designs to tape to the wall, or add sunflower decorations to cupcakes for a nice touch. Cute critters like baby bumble bees, butterflies, birds, and yellow and green balloons complete the look.
Wildflower-Themed Baby Shower
Wildflowers are charming, unique, and dazzling – just like new babies are. Fill your home or venue with wildflowers to bask in the awesomeness that is Mother Nature and the beauty she creates. Finding decor to match the wildflower theme will be easy as wildflowers bloom in every color imaginable. Use wildflowers for centerpieces, table decor, backdrops for photos, and party favors, like bud vases for guests. Wildflower crowns, DIY flower bars, and lavender-flavored refreshments are also unique and fun additions to your wildflower baby shower.
Greenery-Themed Baby Shower
Jump on the fresh, healthy, green train by hosting a baby shower with tons of greenery. This is as easy as picking up a few plants to decorate the room and having a few gorgeous flower arrangements on the table with colorful blooms surrounded by lots of greenery. The benefits of a greenery baby shower are many: green represents fertility, good luck, and prosperity; green plants have proven mood-lifting benefits and promote relaxation and calm – all things a mom-to-be could use.
