Have I mentioned that I love hosting? I truly enjoy bringing friends and family together to share stories, create memories, and of course, tell a few lies. One of my closest friends recently moved here to Oregon and is about to have her first baby. Her mom is hosting a baby shower for her back home out of state, but I wanted her to be showered by all the friends she has made since moving here to Oregon. So I’m hosting a gender neutral baby shower since they aren’t finding out the gender. I decided to go with an elegant greenery theme with a few copper and gold elements as well.
I hope you enjoy the following rustic baby shower ideas and decorations!
1. Baby Shower Greenery Invitations
First, I started by creating these beautiful baby shower invitations with some elegant greenery that are editable.
2. Baby Shower Table Decor
Start by adding an elegant white tablecloth to brighten up the space. Then place down rose gold plates under every other plate to add a pop of color. Next, add your vintage fine china on top of the copper plates. For the napkins, I rolled them and added name tags along with a flower. Then for the water glasses, I used vintage goblets for a fun touch. For coffee or tea, I used the matching vintage coffee cups and saucers that went along with the brunch plates. Don’t forget to add your silverware.
3. Baby Shower Centerpieces
For the centerpieces, I began with using greenery as a table runner. Next, I found old clear bottles, filled them with water, added some greenery inside, and added a white thin candle on top, and placed it on a vintage saucer plate just in case the wax started to spill over.
4. Table Decor Statement Piece
For my table decor statement piece, I decided to create a baby mobile with greenery and flowers to hang over the table for a fun show stopper.
5. Mix and Match Chairs
I love the look that mix and matching chairs can add to a table decor. Don’t be afraid to give this one a try.
6. Host a Baby Shower Brunch
Brunch is a fun and easy food option for a baby shower. There are many brunch foods that can be made or prepped ahead of time as well as store-bought ahead of time.
7. Wine Barrel Food Table Display
Display your food on top of wine barrel tables. I used two wine barrels that we used at our wedding for our cake table and placed two old boards on top to set up our food display.
8. Mimosa Bar
Create a fun and exciting mimosa bar. I created a fun sign for how to build your mimosa with or without alcohol.
9. Coffee and Tea Bar
Since I was hosting a brunch I figured I should also have a coffee and tea bar along with the mimosas.
10. Dessert Table
You can’t forget about a dessert table! I wanted to create a naked cake you know the kind without much frosting around the outside. I found this amazing recipe and made this chocolate cake. Don’t forget your cake topper and napkins.
11. Baby Shower Gift Canopy
Create a fun and elegant place for guests to place their gifts for the mother-to-be. I created this canopy with some sticks from the yard, old curtain fabric, and some twine. Next, I placed down a blanket to give the space an inviting feeling.
12. Baby Shower Banners
I found this fabulous letter fabric that I used to create different banners. With only 1 yard of fabric I was able to make one for “gifts”, “oh baby”, and one with the babies soon-to-be last name. Don’t have time to create your own banners? You can also buy them custom made.
13. Mother-To-Be Chair
Grab the comfiest chair in your house for your mother-to-be to sit in while she opens her gifts. Feel free to dress the chair up with a blanket or pillow.
14. Baby Shower Games
Don’t forget to play some baby shower games. We played “The Price is Right” game and a “Guess how long each animal is pregnant” game as well. I used clipboards to make to easy for everyone to write on.
15. Make a Handmade Baby Gift
Create a handmade baby blanket as a gift from you! Find out what colors or theme the mother is using in her baby room and use that as inspiration to make your blanket. She’ll love such a thoughtful gift that was made by you!
16. Keep Track of the Gifts
Make sure you have someone keep track for the mother-to-be of all the gifts she got and who to thank. In addition, I also gave the mother-to-be matching themed thank you cards along with envelopes and staps as a fun touch so as a new mommy she didn’t have to add another thing to her plate.
17. Baby Shower Party Favors
For my baby shower party favors, I put whole coffee beans inside of these cute pull string burlap bags and added a fun sign to encourage everyone to take a party favor home with them.
