I don’t know about you, but spring is by far my favorite season. There’s just something magical about blooming trees and flowers… plus, it’s lilac and peony season. Springtime is also a fun time to host a baby shower! So, if you or someone you love is expecting, here are seven springtime baby shower ideas:
1. April Showers Bring May Flowers
You knew I had to go there, right?! While this may seem like an obvious theme for spring, the decoration possibilities are endless. Decorate with a raindrop banner, fresh blooms and serve desserts in little rain buckets. And don’t forget the umbrellas! I’m envisioning a diaper cake embellished by some die cut umbrellas, clouds and flowers.
2. Peter Rabbit
This is an especially fun idea if the mama-to-be is a bibliophile, or if she really likes rabbits. Think crisp, fresh veggies and fruits, cute stuffed animals and lots of whimsy. You can even throw in a bunny cake topper and/or bunny shaped cookies for good measure. If you’re into having live floral arrangements, go for a more organic, wildflower look. And don’t forget to gift the book.
3. Mommy to Bee
Who doesn’t love a great pun? Use all of the bee-themed decorations to create a sweet (literally, because there definitely should be honey involved) shower for your favorite mama-to-be. Ideas include honey sticks as party favors, yellow tulips and accents, as well as black and white striped straws.
4. Secret Garden
This is a fun way to host a great garden party, and give it a little literary twist. It could even be a fun tea-themed garden party (mix and match tea pots and saucers for a fun vibe), or you could stick more to the element from the story. But this is a great gift to consider. This garden themed shower featured grassy placements and floral garlands galore.
5. Little Bird
If you love birds, or if you love the idea of birds, this could be the baby shower theme for you. Decorate with birdhouses and branches for full effect, and create little nest desserts filled with all the best candy eggs. (I’m looking at you, Cadbury and Reese’s.) You can make all of the accents light blue or light pink, and take advantage of those pastel colors to make it seem extra spring-like.
6. Paper Flowers Everywhere
If fresh flowers aren’t your thing, or if they induce too many allergies, think about paper flowers. This party provides great inspiration for some ideas of how to incorporate said flowers into the decor, desserts and favors for this type of a shower. There are also some amazing artists who create delicate floral bouquets out of paper, and this could be a meaningful gift to the expecting mom.
7. Little Miss/Mr. Sunshine
If the gender of the baby is not a surprise, this could be a fun route to go. Using soft pastel colors and flowers to create a sunshine-filled shower feels perfect for spring. You could go really literal with the sun theme, or you could go the referential route and decorate and serve things that seem evocative of sunshine. Either way, it’ll be sure to be a happy, bright event.
