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:

Moss and Bunnies Inspired Easter Morning Brunch

What age does Easter stop being fun? Is it when you too old to be invited to the egg hunts? Or when you realize that you can get Reese’s year round, they just aren’t shaped like eggs?

Living in Florida, we have a very short month or two (January and February, MAAAYYYBE a little of March) where we don’t need to run the air condition, and it’s actually pleasant to go outside. I consider that both winter and spring for us. Kind of like a two for one season! You can imagine the number of Easter egg hunts I grew up with where there were mosquitoes out in full force, or the sun had already melted the chocolate, even early in the morning. Sure, as a kid it was fun and what did we care there was chocolate; but in retrospect I find myself wondering what an Easter up north would be like.

I expect there would be lots of fresh, colorful flowers that would be welcomed after a proper winter. And, of course, somehow everyone would have cute, moss covered bunnies around, because what else would you decorate for spring with, right? Mostly I just really want to decorate my home with them, but they always seem so out of place. So I thought it would be a great combination for this week’s party idea board to mix the softly textured moss bunnies, with vibrant yellow elements, found in the daffodil table décor and napkins. The moss covered rabbits are adorable, aren’t they?

Bird’s Nest Inspired Easter Morning Brunch

Welcome!

Today I have a sweet treat for you: I’ve put together a spring inspiration board, perfect for your Easter brunch. It must have been from all of the time I spent on last week’s speckled egg inspiration board, but I felt like I really needed to share an inspiration board as fresh as the meaning of spring, with pops of color, and perfect for Easter. It was when I saw this adorable bird’s nest cake on Pinterest that I knew I had to go with this theme. I’ve even included it in my inspiration board. Here’s what I had in mind:

Speckled Blue Egg – Spring Engagement Party Ideas

Good Morning!

Today’s inspiration board is spring inspired! I’ll be honest; I had a tough time with this board. Not the concept, no that was easy, I had a hard time narrowing down the TYPE of event. I really wanted to do a “speckled egg” inspired board. But what type of event to choose? My gut tells me it would be an adorable play on the traditional “love birds” engagement party, especially during the spring time. Other runner up ideas included this as a baby shower, bridal shower, luncheon, and a birthday party. Really the sky is the limit!

Here’s what I had in mind for this theme:

You’re Invited: Easter Peeps Birthday Party for Kids

Do you know any kids with birthdays near Easter?

I always wondered if the kids who had birthdays on or around Easter got the short end of the presents-stick, like the kids with Christmas birthdays. But then I got to thinking, the kids with birthdays on or around Easter and Halloween probably have it MADE.

Think about it. During that time, there is literally TONS of yummy candy lining every available store shelf. Those kids can have one heck of an awesome candy party!

That got me thinking about if MY birthday was near Easter, and I was a kid, what kind of party would I want to have? And I immediately thought “PEEPS PARTY”. Naturally I just had to make a party inspiration board for something that cute. Here’s what I came up with:
