Eco Baby Shower ideas

1. Location

Home is where the heart is, and not only will hosting a baby shower at home help keep the costs down, it is also more personal to the mum-to-be. By having the celebration at home it will also give you more control to easily incorporate more eco-friendly decorations, reduce excess waste and unnecessary costs. A garden setting at home or in a local park is a perfect fit for Botanical themed shower.

2. Invitations

Going paperless and sending digital invitations via email, text or social media is one of the easiest ways for your celebration to be more eco-friendly. You could also choose invitations made from natural or recycled materials or create something to keep like adding the Baby Shower details to the back of an art print or photo to your guests to frame.

3. Decorations

Eco-friendly decorations don’t have to be boring, choose a biodegradable and compostable DIY balloon garland, recyclable paper partyware and decorations that are reusable, biodegradable and made from all-natural materials with no harmful finishes or chemicals. Decorate with fresh or dried florals and greenery - potted herbs and flowers can also double as guest take home favours.

4. Gifts

Take the pressure of your guests to bring beautifully wrapped gifts, instead request no wrapping, welcome pre-loved clothing and toys or include a list of needed baby items, request a contribution to a big ticket item like a crib, pram or savings account or simply ask each guests to bring a pack of eco-friendly nappies in different sizes.

5. Games

Avoid games with tacky plastic game pieces, instead choose keepsake paper advice cards and activities like planting an organic herb garden, a guest book activity that can become wall art in the nursery or guessing games and quizzes.
