Cactus Baby Shower Inspiration + DIY Cactus Balloon Tutorial

Summer is approaching fast which means warmer weather and party season are just around the corner!

If you are planning a baby shower and are looking for a cute and unique theme, a cactus baby shower could be a perfect choice.

The cactus theme is a great representation of the season and an excellent concept for a summer bash.


The theme works great as a neutral, masculine or feminine theme and there are many different ways to incorporate them into the party.

Use a mix of real cacti and creative cacti crafts to create the perfect balance. If you’re looking for a quick and easy cactus craft to add to your decor, try these adorable DIY cactus balloons!
