How to Create the Perfect Baby or Bridal Shower This Spring

The warmth of April and May ushers in a time of spring celebrations—baby showers, bridal showers, and a host of outdoor events. “April showers bring May flowers,” so here are five event mood boards you can use to inspire your next baby shower, bridal shower, or any outdoor spring festivity.

1. Garden Gala: All-White Elegance

The Inspo: One common theme for spring flings is garden chic. This baby shower utilized our Jardin Du Luxembourg garden collection including our white frame dining chairs, bistro table, and garden umbrella with white fringe. Our display cart with white awning displayed cakes and treats for guests.

Get the Look: Pair classic white furniture with pastel tablecloths and an array of fresh florals. For centerpieces, mix roses and peonies with greeneries like eucalyptus. Illuminate the space with hanging lanterns and use lace parasols or fringe lamps for a touch of vintage charm. Utilize props like this custom-painted display cart to make drinks and food accessible.

Tips: Offer guests an array of seating options so they can alternate between structured patio furniture and more comfortable lounges like love seats.

2. Sky High Soirée: Baby Blues

The Inspo: This baby shower high in the sky was infused with whimsy with a gorgeous cloud ceiling, city views and baby blue decor.

Get the Look: Utilize props like our kids’ dessert display cart and hot air balloon prop to add fun and whimsy to your design. Add furniture pieces that mimic cloud-like fluffiness, like plush ottomans, cloud accent chairs, or soft throw pillows. Transparent and white dining chairs pair perfectly with a blue and white color palette.

Tips: Elevate the event literally by hosting on a rooftop or a high elevation spot. Use clear, acrylic decor to enhance the floating effect, and serve drinks in clouded glasses to keep with the theme.

3. Cabana Chic: A Tropical Getaway

The Inspo: This cabana glam bridal shower was a fusion of sleek lines and tropical warmth, with a modern palette of white, black, and gold.

Get the Look: Set up white cabanas with our comfy square daybeds. Our draped garden gazebo cabana is a great choice paired with a hanging lighting source like a crystal chandelier or pendant lamp. Utilize props like an outdoor whitewash fire pit and gold floor lanterns to bring the vibe front and center.

Tips: For an evening event, hang fairy lights for a starry effect. Ensure there is plenty of relaxing seating for guests, fitting the theme of a poolside party.

4. Pretty in Pink: A Rosy Reverie

The Inspo: This soft, romantic, outdoor baby shower was unabashedly feminine with shades of blush, rose, and cerise.

Get the Look:  Our Jardin Du Champ Elysees garden bar is the perfect addition to dress up your outdoor space. Colorful striped garden umbrellas with fringe bring a delicate touch velvet and boucle seating options compliment floral arrangements. Include a garden facade prop for photo opps and as a focal point for shower-specific items and more florals.

Tips: Make sure there are covers like umbrellas or an indoor option for guests in case those May showers decide to come early.

5. Blossom Boutique: Spring Sophistication

The Inspo: This gorgeous bridal shower was blossoming with details, including a completely custom oversized floral ceiling.

Get the Look: White furniture pieces, like our white wood Aspen dining chair, go with everything and can set the stage for bright blossoms. Use sleek, gold framed decor like our gold Moscow barback to add sparkle. Incorporate color with accent pillows, draping and lighting like with our pink flower York chandelier.

Tips: Incorporate interactive elements like a DIY bouquet station setup on a flower cart. For entertainment, consider a live string quartet to play amongst the flowers, enhancing the boutique feel.
