Baby Shower: Spring Colors + Mod Lines

 

Baby showers can be tough for a trendy, sophisticated mommy that just isn’t into cutesy baby blocks or rubber duckies.  I get it!  If you find yourself hosting a shower for a mom-to-be that has a great sense of style and a love for color – try centering your party decor around a mod pattern, or a particular color palette.

This invitation from my new social stationary collection, WH Hostess, serves just that purpose!  Bright colors, a bold pattern….perfect for a trendy baby shower (or any party for that matter!).  Whether you are hosting your party at home or at an outside venue, keep your decorations clean and simple and remember to stick to your color palette!  Consider a unique location for your party, such as a wine bar, a coffee shop, or a day spa.

A monochromatic table setting like the one pictured above is perfect for this occasion.   The different shades of green look modern when layered together, and I absolutely love the centerpiece!  Instead of fluffy, full flowers choose something with a hard shape, like these billy balls….I just love how they look like little yellow pom poms!  One idea that I am currently obsessed with is the idea of adding colored draping to your party room.  Swap out your curtains, hang drapes in your doorways, or even covering a wall.  By using the same color, it will help unify your party and create a very festive space.  Paper lanterns always dress up a party!  Instead of hanging the traditional round version, use square lanterns for a more modern look.

Diaper cakes are a traditional decoration at baby showers.  Put a new spin on yours by creating a “stork package” instead.  I found this darling one on Etsy.  Modern with a touch of whimsy….this baby shower is perfect for the first months of Spring!
