Are you gearing up to celebrate your baby shower? Are you overwhelmed by the idea of planning a gathering?

We get you. You have a lot on your mind during this stage in your life, and that’s why we want to share some easy-to-implement details that you can add to your baby shower for a dreamy event that will make the day feel extra special.

Who’s ready for a baby shower that knocks the socks off your guests?

Okay, let’s dive in! Here are the five steps that we always suggest checking off when planning the perfect baby shower:

Bohemian baby shower

1) Flowers

Here at Maive & Bo., we love ourselves a good floral detail, and oh yes, that most definitely applies to your baby shower.

Flowers easily add some fresh whimsy to your decor, and they don’t take a lot of time or energy to set up. Simply place a bouquet of some of your favorite sweet smelling flowers on the table, and voila, you’ve added in a lovely detail to your swoon worthy shower.

Not sure what flowers to go with? We recommend some gumtree leaves. Not only are these a great neutral option to add to your tables, they’re also wonderful for wearing in your hair as a flower crown. You can even get your guests in on the action, and incorporate a floral crown making activity into the itinerary of your shower.

Dreamy, right?

2) Decorations

We get it, though. For those of you who really want to create a baby shower that brings the visual delight, you’ll want to expand your decorations beyond just flowers, so let us be of some assistance.

To create that boho esque vibe at your baby shower, don’t go for the typical baby shower decorations. Instead, throw in some of your favorite boho decor staples, like vintage glasses, dream catchers, candles, lace tablecloths, and wood accents.

Trust us, when it comes to creating a boho theme at your baby shower, don’t be shy about incorporating your favorite styles. A little bit of eclecticism will make your baby shower stand out from all the rest.

3) Fashion

You know we couldn’t make this list without giving you a tiny little nudge to ensure you not only provide your guests with a great experience, you also treat yourself.

And that means getting all dolled up to embrace your journey into motherhood.

Whether it be afree-flowing maxi dress, achic floral bodycon dress, or perhaps you love thewrap dress as much as we do, you absolutely should take the time to plan out an outfit that makes you feel beautiful on your special day.

4) Food

And, of course, how could we forget about the food?

Because yes, when you’re throwing your baby shower, food for your guests is an absolute must.

So, to really wow your guests and to keep with your bohemian theme, we highly recommend some light snack foods, like meats, cheeses, and mini sandwiches.

You can place the food out on wood cutting boards, with flowers adorning the table. Serve a lavender lemonade perhaps, and then end the day with an angel food cake covered in beautiful flowers.

Sounds pretty magical, right?

We definitely think so, and we’re certain that your guests will agree.

5) A Gift For Your Guests

And last, but not least, while you’ll likely receive some shower gifts from your friends and family, it’s also a lovely gesture to return the favor with a sweet token of your appreciation.

This can be something as simple as a mini succulent that the guest can take home. Or perhaps a pretty candle in your favorite scent? Even just a simple dessert, like a cupcake or a box of macarons is bound to give your guests a nice little surprise.

A baby shower is a joyous gathering to celebrate a very special time in your life.

If you’re ready to celebrate without all the stress and overwhelm, simply take some of our notes from above, and we’ve got a feeling you’ll be well on your way to creating the baby shower of your dreams.
