This garden floral baby shower theme is an excellent option for springtime. You can make this theme whimsical by incorporating a variety of colored florals in bright reds, blues, and yellows.

Picnics are fun and laid-back, making this the perfect garden baby shower theme for parents who enjoy low-key events. Keep things simple with picnic blankets and pillows, or elevate your picnic with wooden pallet tables and elegant seat cushions.

This succulent garden baby shower theme is perfect for parents who want an outdoor event that isn’t centered purely around flowers. Not everyone likes florals after all! You can use succulents on your tables as decor, then give them as party favors to your guests. 

The phrase “watch me grow” can be used as your event motto since it applies to succulents and babies.  

Tea Party Baby Shower

Birdhouses are outdoorsy, making them well-suited for the garden baby shower theme. You can buy a cute birdhouse for your centerpiece, but pre-decorated ones can be pricey. To save money, consider purchasing a simple birdhouse from your local craft store and decorating it. Or, if you have the right tools – a hammer, nails, saw, and a drill – consider making your own. 

Teapot Centerpiece

All you’ll need for this elegant centerpiece are some beautiful teapots. If you’d like to spruce it up, add a lace tablecloth, candles, and flowers. You can put flowers inside the teapots for a whimsical feel or place them in vases around the teapots for a more elegant look. 

Backdrop Ideas 

Floral Backdrop

Floral backdrops are elegant and look great in photos. You can get a solid flower backdrop or hang floral vines over a curtain. Another option is to buy real or fake flowers and tape each (stems included) onto a wall to create a boho look. 

Greenery Backdrop

Greenery is an excellent backdrop for a garden-themed baby shower because it gives the entire space a natural, outdoorsy look. You can buy a solid wall made from greenery or hang vines or garlands over a curtain. 

Polaroid Backdrop 

This backdrop doubles as a photo booth, making it a great two-for-one. You’ll need an arch, tape, string, and a large photo prop frame to create this backdrop. Add the phrase “oh baby,” “hello baby,” or “welcome (baby’s name)” on the bottom of the prop frame to help your loved ones remember the special day. 

Balloon Arch with Flowers Backdrop

A wooden backdrop will add a rustic flair to your garden baby shower theme. You can use a real wood pallet or a fabric backdrop that looks like wood planks. Add your little one’s name, greenery, and flowers onto the wooden background for some extra pizazz. 

Green Baby Shower Cake Ideas

These gorgeous cakes are ideal for a garden-themed baby shower, incorporating neutral colors and natural elements. If you love to bake, you can make these cakes yourself. Or, if you’re short on time, your local bakery can make them for you.  

Rustic Partial-Iced Floral Cake

Partially frosted cakes are all the rage for rustic garden theme baby showers. The minimal icing look is elegant, allowing the floral decor on top to take center stage. To create this look, bake several cakes, cut them in half horizontally, then stack the layers. Use your spatula to lightly frost the sides of the cake, starting from the bottom and moving toward the top. 

Tropical Fruit Pizza Cake
