Baby Shower Ideas
Now we’ve established that a baby shower doesn’t actually involve any running water, and is more like a pre-birth birthday party than some kind of sick pregnancy ice-bucket challenge, we’re firmly on board (any excuse for cake). But if you’re planning the baby shower to end all baby showers, you need to pay attention to these trends…
Nature themed baby shower
Ahh the classic animal theme, unpretentious, not too flashy, perfect for boys and gals alike. Our favourite is a woodland theme – combine earthy details like foliage and pinecones with baby deer motifs and fairy lights. Or opt for a marine theme with, messages in bottles, starfish and netting with lighthouse keeper lanterns for decoration.
Self care baby shower
Health and wellness practices are creeping up in popularity in the baby shower sphere. Massages and meditation are the most popular, but given the choice we would extend the festivities to facials and therapy dogs.
Eco friendly baby shower
Ditch the balloons for biodegradable alternatives – no we’re not talking paper chains and those awful 70’s honeycomb-style decs! We mean classy tassel garlands, fairy lights, richly patterned 3D stars and dried flowers.
