Autumn blooms for the perfect baby shower

Welcoming a new baby into the world is one of the greatest milestones we will ever reach. No matter if it is their first child or their third, parents always try to do their best to prepare for the big day. This means that they will need all the essentials for the first few weeks or months of baby’s life. All the items on their list can get pretty expensive which is why their family and friends often rally together to host a baby shower. If you are planning a shower for somebody, it’s important to make sure that everything is properly executed. You want to ensure that there is a gift list from which guests can choose. This will help avoid duplicate gifts. You might want to plan some fun games and you definitely want to choose the perfect food and suitable décor. Here are some ideas for autumn blooms that will help create the perfect atmosphere.

Personal touches

Whether you know if the baby is a girl or boy or you have no idea, it’s important to make sure that the décor is as personal as possible. When choosing autumn blooms for this occasion, make sure that you consider all the ways in which flowers can be used to add colour to the event.

Floral décor tips

  • You can use autumn blooms to decorate the interior and exterior of the venue. In other words, you can use potted plants to decorate the entrance to your home, just outside the door and fresh cut flowers inside.
  • You can add fresh flowers to just about any area of your home. Ideally, you want to make sure that you main communal areas are spruced up while the space in which you are hosting the shower is the most colourful of all.
  • You can order some extra flowers to create a floral crown for the mum-to-be.
  • You can also decorate your food or buffet table with small flower arrangements and even some petals in between.
  • As far as the autumn theme is concerned, popular colours include red, orange, yellow, plum, off-white, dark green and brown. You can use all or just a few of these colours. They are all great because they are all gender neutral.
  • If the parents have already enjoyed a maternity photo shoot together, this is the perfect time to show off the best photos to all the guests. You can choose the best picture and place it in a floral frame if you like.
  • Don’t forget to encourage guests to write a message in a guest book so that the happy family will have something special to remember this amazing day.

With all of these tips in mind, you might be wondering what types of flowers are best. There is no real right or wrong answer when it comes to such a happy occasion. You might prefer to avoid flowers with lots of pollen since we don’t want mum to end up sneezing all day. Roses, carnations and chrysanthemums are all safe bets. Of course, if you are looking specifically for autumn blooms, make sure that you check with your florist regarding the types of flowers that are in season in your area at that particular time.
