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:

Modern Blue Pumpkin Thanksgiving Decor Ideas – in Light Blue and Navy Blue

With Halloween just behind us, and Thanksgiving just a few short weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about what your Thanksgiving dinner is going to look like. If you are looking to mix up the traditional rustic orange color palette and go for something more modern, you’ll love the Thanksgiving party decor idea board I have put together for this week. Shades of light blue, mixed with a dark navy blue and hints of taupe and ivory combine to create this modern Thanksgiving dinner styling. To me, having lots of pumpkins in various sizes and colors help make this a cohesive look. I’d love to see the buffet have a few pops of blue or a gentle metallic accent, perhaps in the plates. To add just a touch of freshness, the pumpkin succulent planters have been incorporated. A fun dessert display is always in good taste, and this hanging dessert buffet stays within the color palette, but brings that modern touch with its clean lines. Beyond Thanksgiving, this is a great concept for transitioning from the end of summer into the fall season.
