Decorate the Food Table
This tablescape is so simple and charming, it's like you took a page out of the Little House on the Prarie book! Mix your decor with your food — flowers that look fresh-picked are a good bet. This makes the space intimate and original.

Don't Be Afraid to Go "Matchy"
It seems like lately matching decor gets a bad rap, but it can totally work! Repeating the same type of flower — in the same vases — gives an abundant feeling that makes guest think of a field of wild flowers — and who wouldn't want to imagine that?!

Skip the Tablecoth

Your food table is one of the most important focal points of a shower, aside from the mom-to-be! Choose a rustic, wood table and nix the tablecloth to play up the nature feel.

Add Some Romance

Rose-carved candles make a beautiful statement — and great gifts for game-winners or special guests.

Choose Simple Over Swanky

Create a drink-mixing station — it will become a place to mingle. This one brings the outdoors in, with natural lighting, sheer leaf-motif curtains and a rustic side table.

Don't Be Afraid of Color!

If you thought planning a rustic, nature-inspired shower met skipping color, think again! You can have the best of both worlds, we swear! Incorporate your favorite hue using bright, colored tissue pom-poms and other accents.

Make Mushroom Cupcakes

No cake? No problem! Transform any ole cupcake into mini mushrooms — just ask your local baker if the design is one he can copy. Or, if you're feeling daring, these funky little funguses are the perfect DIY project!
