ABOUT THE THEME

For a summertime baby shower, what better theme to give your celeration than one with a garden-centric boho vibe? Perfect for a gender-neutral shower, the décor for a this theme centers around the natural beauty of the outdoors with lots of bumblebee puns sprinkled in. (Think: mother-to-bee, “thanks for bee-ing here,” ”you’re sweet as honey.”)

THE STORY BEHIND THE CELEBRATION

All in all, it took three months to plan this gorgeous baby shower—and it shows! Between the lush floral arrangements, whimsical calligraphy and beautiful food spread, it’s a shower for the books. The mamma- and father-to-be decided not find out the gender, so the theme had to be something neutral. The bee theme was chosen as a nod to "What will it bee?" Then pink and blue touches were added in to show some boy and girl love.

OCCASION: Gender-Neutral Baby Shower


Entertainment

SINGING GUITARIST

Really set the scene with live music. A singing guitarist can serenade guests as they arrive, then help break the ice during the inevitable present-opening ceremony.


Venue Settings

GARDEN

This party theme needs sunshine, flowers and plenty of outdoor charm. Welcome guests into the space with rustic signage—bonus points for whimsical calligraphy!


Food

CHEESE AND CHARCUTERIE TABLE

Serve up a diverse spread of hummus, charcuterie, cheese, and the season’s freshest fruits: blackberries, strawberries, grapes, raspberries and figs.


Beverage

LEMONADE

A refreshing, sweet sip is a must. Place pre-bottled lemonade in an ice bucket—filled with floral ice cubes of course—and dress up the bottles with paper straws and name tags.

BABY SHOWER GAMES

What’s a baby shower without a few guessing games? If the baby’s gender hasn’t been announced yet, give everyone an opportunity to cast their vote on a blackboard. (Even though it’s none of their “beeswax.” Get it?)

FAVORS

An all-natural honeycomb-shaped soap bar is a great take-home gift and so on-theme.
