Trend to watch: Rustic Baby Shower

Gone are the days of boring baby showers that no one wanted to attend! These days they are quite the social event social and fill our social feeds with gorgeous images that can make even this mother of 4 want to do it all over again!

One trend we’ve been paying close attention to is the rustic baby shower theme. So, so divine and works well as a gender neutral theme, or can be adapted to a slightly more masculine or feminine feel with colour if required.

Key features to include in a rustic baby shower are natural, earthy tones, natural elements such as wood, florals and even fauna, and a few vintage elements like lace and mason jars. You can also work in some metallics for a special pop of colour!

To get your inspiration flowing, we’ve found some great items you can easily source from our LLC Vendors to get a head start.

Rustic Baby Shower Decorations and Tableware

Sometimes starting with a blank canvas can be a little daunting and sometimes end in a creative block! But in this case, you can’t go wrong by starting with a neutral colour palette of woods, kraft paper, hessian, florals and adding muted, pastel colour for a gorgeous layered rustic theme or throwing in some metallics for some extra wow factor!

A gorgeous authentic chalkboard sign such as this suits the rustic feel perfectly and is a special way to welcome guests and personalise the baby shower decor:
