Top Baby Shower Flowers & Decor Ideas
Rose-Themed Baby Shower
Roses hold the spot of the most popular flower in the world and have inspired generations of poets to reflect on their immaculate beauty and grace. Including such a gorgeous bloom when throwing a baby shower makes sense. They are versatile as they come in nearly every color, so they will match any color scheme. Plus, different colored roses carry different meanings, so you can select the perfect rose for what you want to say. For example, themes they symbolize include beauty, joy, friendship, innocence, grace, femininity, and new beginnings. For a sophisticated and trendy look, choose a rose arrangement in a monochromatic color palette such as creams, whites, and soft peaches, or an arrangement of soft pastels. Impress guests with gorgeous rose centerpieces or take a few fresh-cut roses and place them in bud vases for the guests to take home as a delightful party favor.
Sunflower-Themed Baby Shower
Sunflowers are big, bright, joyful blooms and perfect for sunny and yellow-loving moms-to-be. Symbolizing optimism, joy, love, growth, happiness, and strength, sunflowers represent many of the hopes and wishes we feel when holding a newborn baby. Sunflowers are wonderful baby shower decor with their bright yellow petals – an ideal color for a gender-neutral celebration. These versatile blooms can create a rustic look with mason jars, baby’s breath, and wooden accents or a free-spirited, boho feel with macrame, free-flowing greenery, and pampas grass. Incorporate sunflowers into the cake and other bakery items, place them on tables, and have sunflower designs on napkins, plates, and cups to round out the look.
Wildflower-Themed Baby Shower
For wild, nature-loving momma-to-be, celebrate her style and the unique beauty of wildflowers with a wildflower-themed baby shower. There’s so much variety in the color, shape, and size of these special blooms, that they will go with any color scheme you choose. Place a bunch of wildflowers on the gift table, at each person’s place setting, or tie a few to the presents. The beauty, charm, and wild nature of these blooms make for unique and dazzling decor. You can even place (edible) wildflowers on the cake or in drinks. Charm the guest of honor with a wildflower crown, have DIY flower bars, and lavender-scented candles for fun additions to your one-of-kind wildflower baby shower.
Greenery-Themed Baby Shower
A greenery-themed baby shower is a fresh, healthy, and natural take on traditional baby shower decor. Ditch the balloons and decorate with vines and big leafy plants instead. Place greenery on the tables as a runner or have an arrangement of bold blooms with lush greenery placed throughout the room. Plants and live greenery not only promote relaxation and lower stress, but they clean the air and boost people’s moods. Not to mention, the symbolism of fresh greenery represents new birth, renewal, healthy growth, and prosperity. Place a few small containers of succulents on the tables, too, for a nice and interesting touch, as well as eucalyptus, green garlands, and peace lilies. Flowers that complement this theme are white, peach, or green blooms such as roses, peonies, hydrangea, and bells of Ireland.
