The last few weeks have been so wonderful getting to spend more and more time outside basking in the sunshine as the weather gets warmer. Flowers are beginning to bloom and I know many parents that are expecting new babies to be here soon. This has inspired our newest collection of pink floral Baby in Bloom designs featuring my all-time favourite flower, the peony! Such a lovely way to celebrate a baby girl on the way. I hope you enjoy this lovely collection of blooming, garden themed ideas that will allow anyone to easily put together a beautiful baby shower.
Invitation: Set the tone for your garden themed baby shower with a beautiful Baby in Bloom invitation that you can print and mail to your guests or send digitally via email, text or whatsapp. Include popular insert cards asking guests to bring a book instead of a card or diapers for a diaper raffle. Both are wonderful options that the new parents will be sure to appreciate.
Decorations: Fill tables and displays with gorgeous pink peonies, dahlias, ranunculus and other florals to create a lush floral setting. If you’re unable to go with real flowers there are some beautiful silk options (pictured below - center) available from The Blaith in Blair Shop which you can continue using long after your event. Welcome guests in style and let them know they're in the right place by displaying a large welcome sign at the entrance to your shower.
1. Personalize and print this bundle of 12 fun baby shower games to easily keep your guests entertained.
2. Set up a flower bar, the new “it” trend in showers since they not only provide an activity and parting gift for your guests, but all the gorgeous flowers on display make for beautiful baby shower decorations.
3. If your new mommy is expecting a baby girl, why not set up a headband making station for guests to create special one-of-a-kind headbands for the new baby. Display this headband sign along with your headband accessories and the matching made with love tags so guests can label their creations. You can order beautiful headband making kits (pictured below - bottom left) in a variety of different colours from Sweet Bow Market here.
Keepsakes and Memories: Help the parents begin their new journey by sending them home with advice cards filled out by each guest, or a bucket list of things to do and enjoy with their new baby. Ask guests to share their favourite family traditions so the new parents might start their own. Not only will these cards be appreciated by the parents, they're a great activity for your guests too!
Food: Picnic foods are perfect for an outdoor party whether you set them up buffet style or for a more covid-friendly option pre-pack individual picnic lunches for each guest. Display a personalized menu with your food choices or attach menus to individual picnic boxes so guests know what special treats you’ve packed for them to enjoy. Matching baby in bloom plates can be purchased here.
Drinks: Mom-osa bars are always a favourite and super easy to set up. Be sure to include a variety of fruit juices and toppings along with your choice of bubbly. Keep guests hydrated by having water bottles wrapped in our pretty floral water bottle labels. If you're serving drinks on ice consider making your own floral ice cubes with edible florals.
Dessert: Keep it easy, yet stunning by topping a simple cake with fresh floral blooms. If you prefer individual cupcakes for each guest have them iced with different floral designs.
Party Favours: Keep your theme going by sending guests home with a lovely bouquet of flowers, a small potted plant or mini succulents. Attach favour tags that invite guests to watch their plants grow just like the new baby that will be here soon. Send them home with packages of seeds they can plant on their own, wrapped in our seed packet covers.
