Modern Garden Baby Shower Ideas

So excited to finally be able to share this Modern Garden Baby Shower theme I created for iVillage.com! This theme was so much fun to work on… and you can find the complete DIY details for every element right here.

I know summer’s wrapping up, but you can always create an indoor flower garden year-round, right?! =) And there are also a lot of ideas here you can tailor to other themes & occasions – from “How Fast She’s GROWN” first birthdays to “Love in BLOOM” bridal showers…

    Lovely party idea! I keep seeing Mason Jars used as drinking mugs and I think it’s just fantastic! I grew up with mason jars with handles kept in the freezer for drinking cold drinks :-) ALL these decorations are amazing too and I love the idea of the sparkling berry Lemonade. I swear I can’t wait for another friend to get pregnant so I can try out some of these ideas!

  13. Great colors and the button flowers drink charms were fabulous!!

  14. You always have the cutest ideas on here!

    Love! The easiest and most impressive decorations are those that don’t require a ton of prep! Love the idea of using already potted plants and adding finising touches to personalize it a bit more! Thanks for sharing!

    Love these ideas. Are the mason jars wrapped with paper or ribbon? I’m throwning my friends shower in a couple of weeks and am going to try this.

      Hi Mary –
      The jars are wrapped with both paper AND ribbon ;) The wider band is scrapbook paper, and the middle is rick rack ribbon. Good luck with the shower! :)
