Spring is full of new beginnings and new life – flowers begin to bud and baby animals venture out to start a new life. It’s the perfect time of year to celebrate a new baby, too! Today we’re sharing inspiration for a springtime baby shower that is full of life and color for the new mama and baby.
A Focus on Flowers
One of the best things about spring is the blooming flowers – they are the pinnacle of the season and the warmer weather that is on the horizon. For your spring baby shower, put your focus on the flowers you incorporate into the day for a bright and fragrant shower.
Tulips and daffodils are some of the first flowers of spring, so incorporating them is ideal. In addition to those, add in some garden roses, hydrangeas and silver dollar eucalyptus for some extra color and texture. Choose blooms in a variety of soft pastel hues as they’ll set the tone for the whole shower.
There are lots of different places you can incorporate flowers into the shower. Start with the table centerpieces and add a few arrangements on the gift table, food table and in the entryway. You can also add florals to some non-traditional spaces as well – a garland for the signage when guests arrive, a swag for the new mom’s chair or a flower crown for her hair are all lovely ways add more color and decor.
Another sign of spring? Baby animals. Including a few here and there throughout the shower space is a wonderful way to bring the outdoors in and add and extra touch of spring.
Consider including baby bunnies, lambs or ducklings on the shower stationery to help symbolize spring, and then bring a few of those elements into the shower itself. A ceramic bunny or two hidden throughout the centerpieces is a cute way to tie them into theme. Or you could include baby animals on your food signage or custom favor tags or labels.
Because baby animals are cute and cuddly (just like the new baby!) they’re the perfect addition to your spring baby shower!
Springtime Baby Shower Gift Ideas
Celebrate spring and the new little baby with gifts inspired by the season. Plush bunnies with a soft blanket, a baby lamb inspired piggy bank or a little lamb hooded towel for bath time are all wonderful gifts for the new babe. Incorporating animals is a cute way to bring the shower theme into your gift, and the little one will have a keepsake inspired by the springtime.
Want to tie the theme into your gift wrap? Wrap your gifts in brown paper and add a fresh floral topper for a stunningly packaged gift that matches the theme and will wow the new mom.
Spring is a great time of the year to celebrate many things, especially a new baby. Incorporate all of the lovely things that spring has to offer into your springtime baby shower and you’ll have the new mom-to-be feeling loved and excited for her new beginning.
