Rustic Spring Baby Shower Ideas

When I first started sharing my weekly idea and inspiration board for themed parties, Pinterest was just starting to get momentum. It was being constantly flooded with the newest party concept and design. Every possible party rendition seemed to be shared. Maybe it was just who I was following, or what group boards infiltrated my feed more at the time, but it sure seemed like baby showers were pinned and shared way more than they used to be. There was so much content being shared, I was inspired on more than a few occasions to create a themed baby shower idea board, (you can see all of my party idea boards dedicated specifically to baby showers HERE). Maybe it’s because what people are pinning and sharing has changed, or maybe my feed has been curated in a different focus, but I just don’t feel like I see a lot of baby shower content anymore.

Of all the images in this week’s rustic spring baby shower idea board, you’d probably never guess which image inspired the post. Believe it or not, it was actually the bird’s nest tablescape. There was something so fresh, but with a rustic twist, that caught my eye. If you stop by my main site, A Sparkly Life for Me, you can follow along on my journey as I try to create at least one beautiful home tablescape a month.  I mention this because I have been increasingly more aware of the details of the many centerpieces and table decor concepts I have been pinning on Pinterest, trying to gleam elements that could scale to be used on my own home table decor.

This week, the concept in my head was to create a rustic baby shower, perfect for the spring time, with hints of new life scattered in the baby bunny tails, and bird eggs thoughtfully placed throughout the decor. Here’s what I had in mind:

Farmers Market Themed Luncheon Ideas

Looking for the perfect theme for an upcoming luncheon? Be it a thank you lunch, annual meeting, or even a fundraiser – don’t overlook the theme and decor of your event! It is so easy to be underwhelmed at luncheons, due to their perceived limits of timing. In all reality, if it’s noon or 8 in the evening, a ballroom will often look the same, if it’s a standard no-window room. There are a lot of creative ways to bring a farmers market themed luncheon to life, indoors or outdoors. This week, I will be focusing on an outdoor take to hosting a farmer’s market themed luncheon.

Ideally, for hosting this event outdoors, you would have a nice lush green space, the grass would be coming up, and there would be plenty of natural foliage and growth in the area. So picture that as we move forward. Here’s what I had in mind for this week’s party theme and idea board:

7 Colorful Watercolor Wedding and Party Ideas

Don’t you just love showing up to a wedding or a party and being instantly energized by the vivid colors and pulsating energy produced by the decor and the space? It’s easy to spice up your next soiree by inviting color to your decor design, without turning it into a rainbow painting party (which would also be pretty fun, but I think we’ll save that for another time). This week’s wedding and party ideas board introduces you to 7 colorful watercolor wedding and party images that you should consider for your next event.

While each of these individual images of watercolor event decor ideas can be used together to create a beautiful wedding, they can just as easily be used for a luncheon, birthday party, or any other celebration. I would love to see this concept utilized for a spring time luncheon, in perhaps more pastel shades. But these energizing hues are also perfect for end of spring, beginning of summer soirees.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Baby Shower

You won’t be seeing any baby blues or pinks in this baby shower idea board! Nope, this week’s party inspiration board is for the mom-to-be that loves to mix things up. Unlike some of my more traditional baby shower themes, this week I present you with a bolder baby shower theme. You’ll find richer hues, darker shades, and of course a few handfuls of gold glitter in this twinkle, twinkle, little star themed baby shower.

This baby shower would be AMAZING on a cool and breezy evening, especially on a back patio or yard, when it’s just a little chilly out. Twinkling lights overhead would make for perfect finishing touches, but if you don’t have the space for it, I wouldn’t worry about it. This unique theme makes this a great concept for year round celebrations.

Here’s what I had in mind for this little star themed baby shower:

Summertime Watermelon Party Ideas

Happy National Watermelon Day! August 3rd marks National Watermelon Day each year, did you know that? It’s ok if you didn’t, neither did I. When I found out about it, I was instantly inspired to create the perfect summertime watermelon party idea board for you this week. Whether it’s for a kid’s birthday party, or a backyard BBQ with friends and family, you can’t go wrong with a watermelon theme. The cool, watercolor hues of a natural watermelon are easy on the eyes during the heat of the summer, while the refreshing fruit and juices of the watermelon itself are delicious to consume in a host of different ways.

Here’s what I envisioned for this week’s watermelon themed party idea board:

Eclectic and Colorful Mother’s Day Party Ideas

Bright and bold, full of sunny colors and vibrant accents, this week’s party idea board is the perfect eclectic mix to celebrate mother’s day this year. Mixed florals and textures combine to create this color heavy summery party inspiration board while still looking cohesive and put together.

The balance is in the black and white accents you see here and there. The white table highlights the bright floral centerpieces, while a black and white background helps amplify the fresh flowers in their summer shades. The flat black and white elements really work well together to help make the mix of textures and colors stand out.

Here’s what I had in mind:
