Baby Shower Blooms and Decoration Ideas
Rose Themed Baby Shower
The rose is rich with symbolism and is also the most popular flower in the world. Since roses come in nearly every color, these gorgeous and fragrant blooms will match any baby shower theme. For an elegant and sophisticated look, choose roses in a monochromatic color palette, such as white to cream, soft pink to dark pink, or cream to soft peach-colored blooms. Pastel-colored roses are also a classic and appropriate color palette for baby showers. You can also go loud with a bountiful collection of bright, bold roses. Whichever you decide, roses will elevate any baby shower into a proper and beautiful memorable occasion.
Sunflower-Themed Baby Shower
Big, bright, and filled with joy, sunflowers light up a room, unlike any other bloom. Plus, it is the perfect flower for gender-neutral baby showers. Match the sunflower’s color with decor accents in yellow, dark brown, green, and blue to bring the room to life. Pair sunflowers with mason jars, baby’s breath, and wooden accents for a rustic, farmhouse vibe, or include lots of greenery or pampas grass to create a boho look. For decorative imagery, think of baby bumble bees, sunflower cake decorations, and yellow and white balloons.
Wildflower-Themed Baby Shower
Wild, beautiful, unique, and charming, wildflowers are an excellent choice for baby showers. Wildflowers come in various shapes, sizes, and colors, and each is remarkable in its own way, just like babies. Tie up bunches of wildflowers and place them near each guest’s plate as a party favor they can take home with them. Or, place a bouquet of assorted wildflowers surrounded by greenery in a vase on each table. Include other wildflower-inspired decor such as napkins, wrapping paper, and tablecloths.
Greenery-Themed Baby Shower
For a green, fresh, and healthy look, fill the baby shower venue with lots of greenery. A trend that’s been growing in popularity, greenery-themed baby showers provide a nature-like experience for guests. Not only are plants healthy because they reduce depression and lift one’s spirits, but they also clean the air and fill the space with gorgeous green colors. Incorporate plants like ferns, peace lilies, or palms in the venue and accent them with pops of color from beautiful blooms surrounded by greenery. This is one baby shower setting that is sure to be relaxing and pleasant as guests breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the beauty of nature. Complement this look with neutral, wood-like tableware and decor.
