Boho Baby Shower Inspiration

Earthy vibes, whimsical florals and rustic charm – there’s something magical and relaxing about a boho baby shower that brings together elements from nature to celebrate the arrival of a new baby and a mama-to-be. 

Whether you are celebrating a baby girl, a baby boy or just planning to keep things gender-neutral, this theme is not complicated at all to put together.

With many of the decorations coming from nature itself, there is so much room to get creative and use a palette of rustic earth tones to bring to life a true celebration of someone who deserves all the love and support she can get as she embarks on the journey to motherhood! 

Invitations and Venue

To bring together your friends and family for this special occasion, get creative with your invitations.

You don’t need to be specific about colors or symbols and designs because this is such a broad theme to go with.

Pick anything you like from nature and play around with colors to see what you like best. Floral patterns and dream catchers are usually popular choices for the Boho theme invitation cards. 

Your invitation cards can also guide guests towards a dress code if you’d like to have one. You can pick florals, flowy dresses or any earthy shades as options for your guests to dress up in.

Because of the theme, choosing an outdoor venue such as a backyard or a park would be ideal but if you can’t manage to do that because of the weather or other constraints, you could easily turn an indoor venue into a boho themed space as well!

The easiest and most attractive part of a boho baby shower is that you get to pick natural greenery and elements from the outdoors as part of your decorations.

Whether you opt for a few specific bold colors or go with nudes and earthy tones, there is so much you can do with this theme. 

Dream catchers are very popular boho accessories so either get working on making some yourself using feathers, flowers and twigs or purchase some from a crafts store.

Hang them around your venue and even use them to dress up a balloon garland for your backdrop. You can also use macrame wall hangings around your venue to create that perfect boho vibe. 

To add some more little details, use mason jars as vases and fill them with various flowers to set around on tables. Hang plain white paper lanterns and tie up some streamers that match your color palette to make your decorations more vibrant. 

Once you have all your decorations lined up, pick some games that you think your guests will enjoy and share a few laughs over.

Who knows mommy best, baby bingo and baby trivia are some fun options and you can purchase game packages that match your boho baby shower theme.

Food and desserts

Set up your food and desserts tables by using lace as table runners, which add an elegant and classy touch to your set up.

Use vines and twigs as accessories around your table and to add a little more color and detail, order some arrow confetti in your preferred colors to sprinkle around. 

Grazing platters are a great idea for a boho themed baby shower. Use wooden boards, platters and baskets to serve finger foods such as fruits, vegetables, crackers, cheese and nuts. You can serve a variety of different fresh salads and breads as well as mini wraps and sandwiches. 

For your dessert table, get your guests tempted with a line up full of cookies, cake pops, macaroons and brownies. You also can’t go wrong with a platter of boho sugar cookies in shapes of arrows, tepees and flowers on your dessert table. 

For the ultimate boho cake, pick something that doesn’t just look fuss-free but tastes as light and divine too!

A naked cake or a ruffled butter cream icing cake with an eye-catching cake topper would be enough to make a statement that matches your theme.

Use wooden crates as tables and set up a lemonade or iced tea station using large mason jars. Have someone share their favorite fruit punch recipe or create your own!
