The arrival of a new bundle of joy is such an exciting time — and what better way to celebrate than with a beautiful baby shower? Baby showers give family and friends the opportunity to shower the Mother-To-Be with well wishes and gifts. And while sharing this memorable occasion with family and friends is already wonderful enough, beautiful floral arrangements and bouquets can help make the event extra special. So whether you’re planning a baby shower for yourself or someone else, here are a few tips to help you decorate with flowers.
Choose the right florist
First, you need to choose the right florist for the job. While it’s easy to tie together a bunch of flowers yourself and call it a bouquet, a professional full-service florist will help you turn your vision for the most beautiful baby shower into reality. We here at Fiesta Flowers, Plants and Gifts believe that you deserve the freshest floral arrangements at the price that you can afford and we will work hard to achieve that for you.
Work with a theme
A theme will help make the baby shower look and feel cohesive, so if you still don’t have one at this point, now is the time to decide on one. Whether you’re leaning towards a nautical theme for a baby boy, or a dainty tea party theme for a baby girl, adding flowers to complement your decor will make any baby shower theme come alive.
Don’t be afraid to add props if you want your chosen theme to really pop. For example, different-colored balloons or colorful buntings are inexpensive yet practical ways to instantly spruce up any venue. If you’re feeling a little extra, you can use different flowers to create an entrance arch for your guests. And the best part? You can use this floral arch as a focal point for those Instagram-worthy photo ops.
Ideas for baby boys
If you’re celebrating the arrival of a baby boy, classic blue is the way to go. Incorporate different shades of blues and greens into your floral arrangements and bouquets. Using Hydrangeas, Peonies, and Roses for your table centerpieces will add a subtle class to a baby shower for a little boy.
Ideas for baby girls
When it comes to decorating a baby shower for a baby girl, the possibilities are endless. There is no shortage of pastel-colored or vibrant blooms to use in your floral arrangements. Go all-out with gerbera daisies of different hues to make your baby shower stand out. If pink is not your color, you can change it up by throwing in some purple, hot pink and white florals into the mix.
Ideas for gender-neutral baby showers
If you’re unsure of the baby’s gender, it’s better to steer clear of colors that are traditionally associated with the male and female genders. Choose cream, white or yellow-toned floral arrangements instead. If you want to make a bold statement, you can use bold-colored florals or add leaves for extra foliage. Want to take it up a notch? Sprinkle some edible blooms on top of your dessert to give your food table a unique feel to it.
