Nature-Inspired Baby Shower Ideas
Cakes and games aren’t the only places your personality should come through—these festive tree stump sign holders are an easy way to add charm to your fete!
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 freshly picked are a good way to make the space intimate and original.
Don't Be Afraid to Go "Matchy"
It seems like matching decor sometimes 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?
Use Earthy Containers
Bet you never thought of using terracotta pots to hold utensils—but how adorable is tihs? It’s a shower must-have your guests won’t forget.
Skip the Tablecoth
The 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’ll 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.
Create an Owl Theme
