Baby in Bloom | Spring Baby Shower

This baby shower theme screams Spring! Hosted outside, this spring baby shower had a fresh and carefree feel to it. We knew the mom-to-be loved bright green so, it was paired with bright orange which created a fun twist on typical baby boy color palette. Perfect for a boy or girl themed shower– this theme would work great for any occasion.

Let’s start with the centerpieces, shall we?

The centerpieces were white rectangular boxes filled with a form of moss. Vibrant orange Gerbera Daisies looked as if they had sprouted from the lush moss.

The orange flowers popped from the green moss just perfectly!

Above the table hung white, orange, and green tissue pom poms. These are my favorite go-to party decor item. They can be used to create a dramatic touch and are so cost effective and easy. The total cost to make these tissue poms was under $10 and took about 20 minutes. Simple!

The placemats were green gingham 12×12 pieces of scrapbook paper. Scrapbook paper is a simple way to tie in color and make great DIY table placemats. The water bottles were covered with labels that read “Baby in Bloom” and set at each plate. The napkin rings were also made from scrapbook paper; orange strips secured with tape. The favors were wildflower seeds wrapped in a hemp bag. Each bag was secured with a bow of twine and had two tags, one on the front and on on the back. On tag read “Baby in Bloom” and the other had a scripture on it that related to nurturing a baby, which was perfect!

A couple other decor touches.

A wishing tree hosted a momma bird and her nest of baby birds. Guests wrote mom and baby a wish on a tag and then hung it on the tree.

Even though this was a spring baby shower theme, these colors and decor ideas could easily work for a garden party, bridal shower, etc. Thanks to Kaci, the guest of honor’s sister for the amazing photos!

    What a fantastic baby shower, the clothes line decor is such a great idea. I love the orange Gerbera Daisies too, one of my favorites and a perfect color for spring.

    WOW! It’s like you read my mind *chuckle* I’ve been REALLY searching for baby shower ideas that weren’t the “traditional” pink, yellow, blue with baby shoes and pacifiers. This is SO BEAUTIFUL and NATURAL and ELEGANT!!!! I love it.

    I love these ideas! What kind of moss was used and did you grow it or buy it ready?

    OhEmGe…love, love, love the idea of using moss in the centerpiece as opposed to wheatgrass (which is so commonly used). Spectacular!!

    Lizette – I just made them by printing the design onto cardstock on my home computer – super simple! Then just cut to fit and attach. Hope that helps!

    Hi Carmela,
    The front of the tag read “Baby in Bloom” and on the reverse side there was a Bible scripture that read: “I water it continually, I guard it day and night so that no one can harm it.” Isaiah 27:3

    can you tell me what where did you get the green moss for the center piece from and what did you put underneath them to make them this high?

    Gigi- I purchased the moss in large squares from a home/garden store, it was similar to a square of grass. i just cut it to size. The soil on the bottom was what gave it the height. The bonus was after the shower, I planted the moss (it’s been growing for 2 yrs now!).

    I absolutely love this theme! I want to use it for my friends shower in late June. Do you know of an invitation design that goes with this theme?

    Thanks so much for sharing this and for any help you can provide.

    @Lori – The white boxes are from Target. They were really inexpensive where near the organizational items. Personally, I like the monochromatic look. You could do multiple colors flowers but I would confine colors to the box. So like on box pink, one yellow, etc. I like the “pop” of the solid colors together.

    Good luck!
