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:

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:

2016 – Year of the Monkey….. and BANANAS – Baby Shower Ideas

Did you know 2016 is the year of the monkey?

Well, if not, now you know!

I know it isn’t a literal meaning, as in monkey themed things will just pop up, but I couldn’t help being inspired by cute little monkeys and bananas. I thought I’d put together an adorable baby shower (or birthday party) inspired by cute jungle monkeys and bananas. Lots of brown and yellow elements of course, but I would love to incorporate a banana scent into the party room so it was just subtle enough to be noticed. And of course, if space permitted: large, leafy tropical foliage plants.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Sugary Sweet Pastels + Jelly Beans – Baby Shower Ideas

Ahhhhh yes. The smell of sugar.

You know what I’m talking about. At some point in your life you’ve opened up a bag of your favorite sweet treat and inhaled the sugary scent that was released. And you totally loved it. I would go so far as to say you even had a smile on your face after.

A lot of mommy-to-be ladies out there share a similar smile, for obviously more legitimate reasons – I mean they are making a tiny human after all – but they still are happy and smiling and full of positivity.

Those emotions are what sparked the inspiration for this sugary sweet baby shower inspiration board. Here’s what I had in mind:

Pale Pink Rose Baby Shower

I often wonder if I would do well living in a climate other than Florida. We have pretty much one season: summer. Sometimes it’s a little cooler, but only for short bursts of time, and even then we could still lay out and get sun if we wanted to. We never really have that “Spring” revival of color. Everything is green year round and always growing.

For whatever reason I can’t help to think this week’s idea board would do exceedingly well in a setting that was actually still getting out of winter. Somewhere where this pale pink would really pop. You can’t really go wrong with pale pink roses for a baby shower, especially not this time of year.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Colorful Jelly Bean Baby Shower Ideas

Welcome back!

This week there has been so much rain here in central Florida, everything is starting to grow in lush and full. Flowers are sprouting up in my garden bringing some much needed color to the area.

I really wanted to do something bright and cheery for this week’s idea board, and after hearing that today is apparently National Jelly Bean Day, I just had to do something like this for the weekly idea board. Here’s what I had in mind for this spring time baby shower:
