This weekend was a special one because I had the opportunity to decorate for a baby shower with one of my closest friends. The mama-to-be requested accents of cream and rose gold baby shower decorations but otherwise let us do our thing! My friend really wanted to keep the decor simple, laid back, and stress free- so that was the goal! We settled on a baby in bloom baby shower theme, and it turned out so cute. I am so thrilled to share how it turned out with you today!

Rose Gold Baby Shower Decorations
Because rose gold baby shower decorations were a specific request for the shower, we wanted to incorporate them without going too over the top or too metallic. I loved the idea of making rose gold signs to incorporate throughout the event. After coming up with a design, I printed off these cute signs at Staples- perfect color but more of a matte finish than a metallic shine.
We also used some cute rose gold straws and balloons for the rose gold baby shower decorations. These three things gave just enough accents of rose gold throughout so we didn't need to add anymore. More is not always more- and that is something I am still working on!!
Instead of a traditional floral arrangements, we opted for a wildflower look for our baby in bloom baby shower. P.s. if you're not a florist (we are not!) then a wildflower look is perfect for a shower! We threw together some greenery with cream flowers and pops of pink/blush blooms in different sized mason jars and bud vases. In order to add more of a truly wildflower look, we used these white lanterns as bucket holders for the blooms. We paired those with sea grass/straw colored lanterns. This gave such a boho, cool vibe to the shower and I loved it.
I also nabbed one of the arches from my DIY Wedding Seating Chart Wall and paired it with some of our blooms. This was such a quick feature wall addition and matched that rose gold accent color perfectly!
My friend already has so many beautiful potted plants around her yard, so we incorporated those throughout alongside the buckets of blooms we created.
Food + Drinks
The mama-to-be requested a taco bar (and let's be honest, you cannot go wrong with Mexican food in San Diego, I mean it's DELISH)! We paired the taco bar with a cute menu sign and some blooms.
To add a natural element to the tables, we used these palm leaf plates and flatware- eco friendly and disposable. I think these plates are great when going for a one-time use option. They have a boho/natural vibe and are a nice alternative to traditional paper plates.
The dessert bar though...OH MY GOODNESS.. my friend, Cammie, ordered mini cupcakes with floral decorations and they were so beautiful!!! The mama-to-be's tata made her favorite cookies too, which was the sweetest thing! I loved how our dessert bar came together. It was so simple but so cute and nailed our baby in bloom baby shower design.
Lastly, we set up a cute little mocktail station with topo chico and guava juice. So yummy and such an easy mocktail! You can't go wrong with sparkling water and juice!
And that's about it! I hope you enjoyed reading about our baby in bloom baby shower! I would love to hear what you pointers you have to create laid back events without the stress of excess! Let me know in the comments below!
