Baby Shower Flowers Ideas

Baby showers are wonderful events that celebrate the upcoming or recent birth of a cute little youngster coming into this world. It is a time of great joy and pride as the parents take their first steps as such, bringing a true gift to the world. No matter what your theme is, flowers are always an essential part of any baby shower celebration.

So what are the appropriate flowers for a baby shower?

A lot of people believe there has to be a specific way of arranging or picking specific flowers for this event. We will cover some great ideas so you can have some guidelines on what you can pick, however, the choice ultimately remains yours in the end.

Softer hues, represent the gentleness of a baby being born. For that reason, flowers of pastel, subdued colors are a good choice. Traditionally, a lot of people choose Gypsophila paniculata, more commonly known as baby's breath which is a wonderful tradition. You can go far beyond that however by picking flowers from a large variety.

The suggested flowers below are perfect for the baby shower decoration as well as a gift for the mother. Use them to decorate the entrance, the room and the table. They can be used as centerpieces in various containers and, for a richer effect, with combination of other items like candies, candles, favors etc. Use your imagination to create a warm atmosphere which will suit your own taste.


Lilies (Lilium)

Lilies bouqet

A very well-known choice among  all lovers of flowers, lilies are very beautiful and perfect flowers for nearly any occasion. They come in a variety of colors, however you should be careful when giving them as a gift.
