Natural Baby Shower Ideas

We love celebrating new babies here at Our Green House, and what better way to celebrate a new little one that with a baby shower!  If you are hosting a shower, there are so many different themes and ways to celebrate, so we wanted to share some natural and organic ideas that you can incorporate into your shower :)

The traditional diaper cake is a really cute idea, but it is even better with cloth diapers like this one!  You can make a new mom a wonderful diaper cake full of cloth diapers, swaddle blankets, and lots of other organic cotton goodies that a will be needed for when little one arrived.

We love the idea of giving guests favors that they can continue to and enjoy and use.  Giving guests small herbs in compostable containers is such a sweet gesture, and every time they use their herbs they will think of the little baby they showered!

When it comes to decor for a baby shower, sometimes less is more.  We really like the idea of using mason jars from around the house to hold simple flowers or greens.  If you have wild flowers or pretty greenery growing in your yard, you can make beautiful and simple arrangements from those!

When it comes to food at showers, its great to serve simple items that are in season.  We love creating a delicious parfait bar because everyone can build a parfait just the way they like!  Try buying the fruits from your local farm or farmers market, and there are lots of great granola recipes that you can make ahead of time.

Last but not least, we just adore making a piece of art out of all the cards a new mom receives when she is expecting and has had her baby!  Simply use a heart shaped punch to cut the cards, arrange them on a piece of paper, and then pop it in a frame.  This is such a sentimental (and simple) piece of art that is perfect for the nursery, plus you are recycling all of the cards and giving them new purpose!

Throwing a natural and organic baby shower is a fun and fairly simple way to show a new mom how much she is loved.  Using organic/natural foods and decor that are in season and readily avaibale will make your shower a hit among everyone!  And for all your baby shower gifts, make sure to check out Our Green House.
