Baby shower flower centerpieces
For a beautiful, affordable, and easy to make baby shower flower centerpieces all you need is a vase or pitcher, water, flowers and foliage.
The baby shower flowers and foliage you choose might be picked from your garden or bought from your local store and could be chosen to coordinate with the color or theme of the baby shower – this simple idea is sure to make your baby shower flower centerpieces look extra special.
For a look that’s a little different you could also use a container such as a goldfish bowl. Glass bowls look very pretty half-filled with water, with flower heads – such as peonies or roses – floating on the water’s surface.
Although the availability of some flowers may depend on the season here are a few flower variety suggestions:
- Baby’s Breath
- Antirrhinums (often called Bunny-Rabbits)
- Sweet Peas
To create these baby shower flower arrangements, you can call friends and family to help out. Some women are very skilled and love doing this sort of thing. If you’re not the crafty type, then save some time by purchasing online and having them delivered to you.
Whatever the color scheme of your shower, use that as a basis to choose the colors in your baby shower flower centerpieces. A beautiful arrangement idea is to have several different shades of one color and add baby’s breath and green leaves to the mix. The picture to the right is a great example of doing this with your flower bouquets.
Saving money is always a good thing. So when you’re picking out your flowers, try to use the ones that are naturally blooming at the time that you host your baby shower. Since they are easily available, they end up being much more cost-effective. Even if you don’t have a large budget, you can still have gorgeous flower bouquets. Some flowers that are usually much cheaper are camellias, daisies, carnations and wild flowers. If you have a bit more to spend then you can buy roses, lilacs, tulips, orchids and lilies.
Whatever baby shower theme you’re using, flowers are always a refined option to use to decorate your tables.
