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 Invitations

Set the tone of your event with beautiful invitations that the mum-to-be can add to her keepsake box. We love these ones printed on wood by Eve & Co which could be customised to suit a baby shower theme:

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:

A baby shower in full bloom

When you’re expecting a new baby – it is a special time and definitely a time to celebrate! A baby shower is a beautiful chance to pamper the mother to be and indulge her a little while celebrating the unique life about to be born!

Talented Life’s Little Celebration vendors collaborated together to put together an inspirational shoot in time for spring for anyone planning a baby shower! This shoot was styled for a special feature on Lenzo which you can view here.

These beautiful invites really set the tone for the whole shoot and I love the idea of theming a baby shower around such a floral concept as being “in full bloom”!






The whole event then came alive with the gorgeous array of flowers and decor to create a relaxing, inviting and perfectly pretty setting with the colours of the flowers working so beautifully with the rose gold touches:









The cake and desserts again exemplified the whole theme of being “in full bloom” with pretty and delicate floral details:

























Handmade elements such as these handpainted artworks and gift tags add so much personal detail:




Can you believe these seed packets are actually cookies? Just stunning detail!





I love the refreshing drink station setup with the mixes of rose gold and greens:








This beautiful flower was actually handcrafted from paper – hard to believe I know! Paper flowers are the perfect way to add extra floral touches which you can keep after the celebration!
