Macramé is the name of this game. Make or buy a dreamy woven piece, then add boho touches like wildflowers. It makes a perfect photo backdrop. This beautiful scene from 100 Layer Cake will inspire you.

Tropical touches make for a vibrant shower. Pineapples, leafy accents and even flamingo decor is easy to come by these days. And think of the fruity beverage options. Check out this sophisticated, simple palm frond-laden table by Studio DIY.

A theme that could incorporate hexagonal "hives," honey or wild flowers, mother-to-bee is a sweet party idea. This chic vintage affair featured on Hostess with the Mostess was designed by Queen Tut Events and Design.

Twinkle sprinkle

Great for a casual sprinkle or a full-fledged baby shower, the twinkle sprinkle theme uses a smattering of tiny gold stars as decor. The lullaby "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" shines at the center of this adorable shower by Bloom Designs.

Gourmet ice pops are at the center of this cool baby shower. Perfect for a hot day and pretty to look at, artisanal frozen treats will delight the mama-to-be. You can make your own from fresh fruit or get these pops from San Diego shop Viva Pops

A Baby is brewing

Instead of the tired BBQ, go for a summer baby shower featuring burgers and beer. You have so many options with a brew-themed party: host it at a brewery, have special selections on tap or even create custom koozies, like these from Etsy. This idea is perfect for a mom-to-be who can drink, like an adoptive mom or mom using a surrogate — and for the mom-to-be who can't drink, make sure there are alcohol-free beverages on offer!
