Hello everyone! I’m Cristy, editor of Pretty My Party. Are you looking for ideas on how to plan the perfect boho chic baby shower? I love baby shower themes of all kinds, but a bohemian theme has become my new favorite.
A bohemian (or boho) theme is whimsical and free-spirited. Think of charming details like bouquets of wildflowers, dream-catchers and floral crowns. If you are planning a baby shower and the momma-to-be is a free spirit who loves nature, then a Boho Chic Baby Shower might just be the perfect theme for her! No matter what the gender of the baby, a boho-themed shower can work for anyone. Here are a few ideas to help you start planning…
First, start with the invitations. The invite sets the tone for the whole shower. Invite your guests with a gorgeous floral watercolor invite like this one. This style is perfect for a free-spirited, boho chic baby shower, and really sets the tone for what’s to come in the celebration.
Another element of a great shower is to get your guests involved in the fun! I’m slightly obsessed with these floral crowns, and they’re the perfect way to get everyone to mingle. Set up a flower crown station and let everyone make their own to wear during the shower. Guests will have fun making their own floral headpieces, and you can even have your guests make a little crown for the baby of honor! Then mom-to-be can use those crowns for baby’s first photo shoot!
Adding vintage frames like this pretty gold one with a chalkboard sign welcoming guests is a great detail to add to your boho-chic affair!
For the decor, find a local rental company with vintage pieces and add those elements to your shower. A variety of bottles, candleholders and flowers were added to the space to compliment the boho-chic theme.
Create whimsical touches with authentic decor and add colorful, vibrant flowers, baby’s breath, lace, colorful pillows, lanterns and other unique elements to set the tone for your unique event.
In this shower, I love how guests sat on pillows and dined on a lower wooden table. This creates a sense of intimacy for your friends and family and shows a little of that free-spirit vibe that goes along with a true boho theme.
Vintage floral plates surrounded by lush greenery, gold candles and gold cutlery made the table complete. Floral place cards, which matched the gorgeous invitation, were on each place setting, welcoming everyone to the table.
Colorful decor, along with these pretty dream catchers, were a must-have for this theme!
Remember, the momma-to-be has to have a special place to sit at the shower. We love how this wicker chair adorned with flowers was incorporated for the guest of honor.
No only was this rustic event space just perfect for the event, but it was made more intimate with lights strung above and candles surrounding the food spread.
Having a beverage station set up like this one is a great alternative to a bartender. Make it even more fun with a signature “cocktail and mocktail!”
For the menu, keep it light with finger foods, salads and quiches. For desserts, good options are mini pies, cupcakes, and macaroons.
We just adore this floral and ribbon tent – perfect for photo-ops with your guests! Have fun with this theme and incorporate elements into the event that honor and compliment the momma-to-be.
