Always on the look out for cute, new ideas for baby showers … I came across this theme. Taking the ‘showers’ in baby shower quite literally! This whimsical theme is eye catching and although it would be lovely in any season, it is perfect for Spring Showers.
Don’t be daunted by creating your theme. Choose neutral tones and purchase block colour basics (baby blue is perfect for the illusion of a nice blue sky http://www.perfectbabyshower.com.au/store/pc/Baby-Blue-c126.htm). A few clever cut outs will create your ‘Shower’. Rain drops in white & difference shades of blue cut and thread through fishing line and then hung from the ceiling. Place gorgeous under white pom poms up high & it will seem rain is falling from your heavenly sky (http://www.perfectbabyshower.com.au/store/pc/3-White-Fluffy-Decorations-52p998.htm. If a nearby breeze can gently catch your raindrops it will beautifully enhance the effect.
Cut out little white clouds & glue onto toothpicks (a glue gun makes light work of these things!). These little clouds will make any plate of food encapsulate your Shower theme. The image below shows how the dress up cute blue topped cupcakes. However you could use them for canapes too.
Use your cloud cutouts on other table decorations to bring everything together. Try to keep all other tones neutral, the white clouds & white pom poms need a calm backdrop to ensure they are the focus of your table setting.
Sure to delight your guests!
Spring is nearly upon us, it is such a magical time of year. Nature is in bloom and there is the knowledge warmer weather is just around the corner. Another thing Spring is known for is the surge in babies being born! September / October are the months for an increase in births, so with so many baby showers coming up we thought we’d give you some wonderful ideas for a Spring Baby Shower.
As Spring is such a beautiful time of year with warmer days encouraging us to be outside, why not turn your baby shower into a high tea in the garden?
Stay with your garden theme and keep your colour palette calm and soft, baby blue and pinks are great if you know the sex of the baby otherwise neutrals, greens, yellows and oranges will work best.
Try decorating your space, with white, green, yellow lanterns, décor balls, tissue fans and Martha Stewart pompoms and garlands. These block colour decorations had grace & fun to the outdoors and if handled carefully can be reused.
We have a beautiful range of colours and styles here http://www.perfectbabyshower.com.au/store/pc/Pom-Pom,-Lanterns-Paper-Decorations-c52.htm
Plenty of fresh Spring flowers will really help set your table alive: daffodils, tulips, Jonquils, Freesias are all beautiful at this time of year. They will also bring the magical smell of Spring to your table.
A Spring baby shower high tea is a wonderful excuse for your guests to frock up and enjoy a beautiful afternoon in the sun. Colourful dresses and sun hats will make your guests feel feminine, perfect for a girly afternoon….
A perfect theme for a Spring shower is our Happi Tree range, it has a colour pallet sympathetic with nature and a cute owl motif which is a popular current trend. http://www.perfectbabyshower.com.au/store/pc/Happi-Tree-c128.htm
It is important your space looks fresh and vibrant to really bring out the spring vibe.
If you decide to do a traditional afternoon tea it is a great idea to use china if possible. Everyone always enjoys drinking tea out of a beautiful china cup.
