A boho baby shower brings together all the elements of the eclectic theme with rustic charm and pretty florals enhancing the earthy vibe. One of the most popular baby shower themes to date, it’s the quirky little details that have our hearts aflutter.
From macrame backdrops and dainty little treats to swoon-worthy table settings, there are plenty of creative ways to celebrate the pending arrival of a bohemian babe.
Here’s everything you need to make a boho baby shower rock.

Send out the invitations
Boho Baby Shower Invitations ($19.80): A gorgeous mix of lush greenery and gold lettering sets the scene (and style) for the celebration ahead. Whether it’s a small gathering of your nearest and dearest or a bigger bash with colleagues too, send the invites early to ensure everyone can make it.
Make an entrance
Creating a ‘grand entrance’ gives guests the chance to get snap happy before the baby shower begins. Think about special ways to welcome your loved ones, whether it be with yard signs, balloon arches or macrame backdrops like the one above. It’s a great conversation starter too.

It’s all in the details. The boho baby shower theme allows mum-to-be to let her inner bohemian goddess shine. There’s no need to over-style here, simplicity is key. Think recycled glass jars wrapped with lengths of lace for a soft vintage look, an eclectic mix of patterned cushions, rugs and throws scattered on the floor, and bunches of Baby’s Breath or Eucalyptus leaves for an effortless yet exquisite finish.

Dress to impress
Camille Gown ($127.64 + shipping): If there’s ever a day for a couture lace gown, your baby shower is it. Fully lined and available in a variety of neutral colours, it’s the perfect dress for you and your beautiful boho bump.
Setting the scene
Nothing says boho quite like hessian. It’s an inexpensive way of adding texture and an outdoorsy feel to a simple affair while tying the bohemian theme together nicely. Simply pair with wooden cutlery, greenery and rustic wooden slices for a well-rounded look on tables and benchtops. (via 100 Layer Cakelet and Pinterest)
Take the boho theme all the way to the kitchen with super cute cookies just like these. Decorate plain sugar cookies with arrows, feathers and tribal patterns to really get guests swooning! (via Happy Grey Lucky)
The culinary centrepiece
The piece de resistance. For the baby shower cake, think tiered naked sponges, soft florals, delicate specs of gold leaf and all kinds of feathers. This baby shower cake may be simple but it’s an absolute show-stopper. Take a look at our favourite boho baby shower cakes to give you a little inspiration.
Fun for all
Gather the girls and set up a flower crown making station. It may not be a traditional baby shower game but guests will love making something to wear there and then. And when everyone has finished their masterpiece, it makes for a stunning group photo you’ll adore forever. (via I Am Khatu)
Quench that thirst
The bohemian life is eclectic and eccentric. Using a mix of vintage and modern glassware in various shapes and sizes will transform the standard baby shower drinks table and add real wow-factor. (via Pretty My Party)
A small favour
There’s no better gift than something guests can take home and cherish. Say thank you with a baby succulent to take away. Guests can shower it with love and watch it grow, just like your baby-t0-be. (via Inspired by This)
