Create a whimsical, lush theme for your baby shower by bringing the garden inside. Don't worry, you don't have to have a green thumb to make your shower come to life with herbs, nature inspired decor, delightfully fresh food, and verdant touches throughout the tablescape.
You can find everything you need to craft an enchanted garden baby shower at a local nursery, well-stocked grocery store or home goods store. Keep your color scheme natural with shades of green, muted earth tones and sparkling touches of polished silver
and ivory to add a little elegance. Using twine, rosemary sprigs and vine leaves to wrap votives and napkins creates a rustic and inexpensive way to incorporate natural elements into the place settings.
Food is always a focal point of any shower, so continue the fresh garden theme with delightful finger foods, individual salads and tempting sweets. Choose seasonal produce chopped into bite size pieces when composing single serving salads in glasses,
so the beautiful colors of the veggies show through. Garnish with some cheese and a toast slice or cracker to add crunch.
Using bright green grasses as display bases, and varying the heights of your serving dishes with cake platters, will create an image of sweet treats growing in an indoor garden. Berries, grapes and other small fruits will add color to the displays. And
don't forget the beverages! You can make your own flavored waters with slices of limes, melon or berries combined with fresh herbs such as mint. Serve them in upcycled glass milk bottles or mason jars to finish the homey look.
Baby shower staples such as games and the much-loved diaper cake can also be easily tied into your garden theme. Wrap green ribbon and fake ivy around the diaper cake tiers, nestling a rosemary plant in the center of the cake, and present the diaper
cake on a bed of grass for a simple way to incorporate the must-have diaper cake into the shower theme as well.
Of course, no shower is complete without a token takeaway for your guests. Everyone will love a small potted herb plant that they can use and appreciate. Rosemary, thyme, basil, sage and mint all smell wonderful and will provide your guests with
fresh herbs to use at home over and over again. Wrap ceramic flower pots with twine to add a rustically festive touch.
An enchanted garden baby shower is an elegant, delightful way to celebrate your growing family with those closest to you. By bringing the outside in, and incorporating nature into every element of the shower, you will delight your guests and create a lovely, unique shower that you will remember for years to come.
