Planning a beautiful baby shower, sprinkle or high tea doesn’t have to be overwhelming. A floral theme can be simple, gorgeous and budget-friendly!
Floral decorations offer timeless style and if you DIY the arrangements they can be an effective budget option. Check out these handy DIY floral arrangement tips. To complement your flowers and help transform your venue you can add pretty tissue pompons from the ceiling (you can also make these yourself). For an extra wow factor erect a floral arch like this at your entrance to welcome your guests.
Pinks and blues are popular floral colour choices if you know the gender of bub, whilst greenery and lilacs are the most popular colours for gender-neutral affairs. For those who love to be on trend - Coral is the fresh colour you will see in 2019-2020.
Combine florals with elements of greenery, fruit, rustic wood and ribbons to create an eclectic or boho vibe.
Trendy printable photo booth frames offer lots of entertainment for guests and can also double as attractive décor when displayed as part of a photoshoot area. Cute printable wall art like this unicorn print is an easy, budget friendly way to decorate your party and with a great BONUS - they can later be used to decorate the nursery!

Every baby shower needs a game or two! You could play guess the tummy size using a Mommy Tummy Tape (or a piece of string). Set up a Diaper Raffle to help mom-to-be save some money. You could also create a lovely keepsake whilst entertaining guests with these easy printable baby shower prediction cards.
A game that is always fun to play is a baby shower version of The Price is Right. To play, compile a list of baby items like diapers, wipes, formula, bibs. Find out the price of each item at your local supermarket. Give guests a pen and a Price is right card and call out each item. Guests write down what they think the retail price of each item is. The closest to the total price wins the game!
If you bake, floral cupcakes are easy to make with a simple piping bag. Floral themed paper plates add convenient elegance to your table settings. Complete your table with small tea cakes, frosted blondie squares and a delicious strawberry cake (or blueberry cake for boys). Add some style to your drinks display by making gorgeous floral ice cubes. You may like to create personalized wine or champagne bottles with printable labels. (Mommy might need to wait a few months to enjoy that one!)
Party favors don’t need to be elaborate or expensive. You could fill little baby bottles or a cute box with chocolates or lollies and add a simple thank you card tag and decorate with a ribbon or flower.
