In Bloom: Throwing the Perfect Spring Themed Baby Shower {+ a Minted Giveaway!}

Looking for the tips and tricks to throw the perfect baby shower? From the balloons to the menu {including my favorite make ahead dessert}, to the invites and paper decor we’ve got you covered! {Be sure to check out the bottom of the post for the latest Minted promotion!}

All of the details for this beautiful floral Spring themed baby shower just turned out so lovely.  We spoiled this Mom-to-be with cute details that can easily be added to her baby’s nursery later on.

These paper fans can be found at MyMindsEye and the Baby Shower sign was found in the Target dollar section!  Score!

Minted did a fantastic job on all of the paper goods-I’m so impressed with their customer service, the quality and their massive selection!

Aren’t these invites beautiful?

Grandmas are like Moms with extra frosting and sprinkles.”  How cute is that!!?

Baby Shower Details

I loved this ABC print from minted.  It was perfect for the shower and matches her baby nursery for later!

Baby Shower Details

I used blank table number cards for guests to write words of encouragement for labor/delivery and motherhood.  They are thick and can easily lean against something or hang sturdily on a banner.

Baby Shower Details

The favorite for the night was polaroids with the mom-to-be.  Each guest had their picture taken and clothes-pinned to a thank you tag for them to take home as favors.  Even the most camera-shy were willing to pose for a real polaroid!

Still can’t get over how much I love this tassel banner!

Baby Shower Details

Minted also makes matching fabric for things like table runners, pillows and anything else you might need for party decor!  I created a baby blanket for her nursery that doubled as a throw for the party.  I still can’t get over how well it matched the invites!  I had some fabric left over after the blanket that worked out as a table runner on the food table.  The fabric is no fray and didn’t need to be hemmed (huge bonus!)

Baby Shower Details

The shower was easy-going and open house style.  We took polaroids as guests arrived, snacked on treats, talked motherhood, opened presents and enjoyed the beautiful spring weather.
