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!

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

    Awww I just love this!

  21. Missy October 31, 2010 at 10:53 am

    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!

  22. Jen January 19, 2011 at 12:58 pm

    Yay! Spring is so almost here, using this most definitely! Wish I could be a professional party “giver” LOL

    Flower cookies look soooooo good – Do you have a recipe or somewhere to buy them? I love hunting through your site!!

  24. mary January 26, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    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! :)
