Organic Baby Shower

Green Themes, Eco-Friendly Baby Shower Collection

As our awareness about what goes into the foods we provide for our families and the products we buy continues to grow, more and more people are making important decisions about their family's health and the greater well-being and biodiversity of our shared planet.

An organic baby shower is a reflection of a move to a more natural, healthy and sustainable lifestyle. In essence this means making a choice for produce that has been grown without the use of pesticides, hormones and chemical fertilizers and whenever possible, for products that are made from renewable resources. Many such products are also produced following the Fairtrade ethic, which guarantees workers making these products fair pay and conditions according to established international guidelines.

Going Organic is a wonderful way to throw a happy and healthy baby shower which ultimately benefits everyone and the environment.


Decorations

Decorating for an Organic baby shower should follow the same general eco-friendly guidelines as for the Green Baby Shower, Vegetarian Baby Shower and Vegan Baby Shower.

Decorating for a green baby shower is one of the easiest things that you can do and it can also be the hardest.  Obviously, you are going to stay clear of balloons, streamers and confetti and go with more natural, eco-friendly choices.  One of the best settings for a green baby shower is outdoors.  A garden, backyard, or even at a park are great locations.  This will provide you with most of your decorations and you will need to do little else with the space.

If you want to add a bit more panache, spruce up the area with natural elements like flowers, colored stones, or water fountains.  Bamboo and palm fronds can decorate the space as well.  Candles can also provide ambiance to the space or for centerpieces you could fill a jar with limes or lemons.

Invitations

Invitations can be the tricky part of throwing a green shower, especially if you want a hard invitation.  You can use the telephone and phone all the guests or you can email them an e-invite but if you want a paper invitation there are still alternatives.

One of these can be invitations made from recycled paper.  There are many companies offering these and they are not very expensive when it comes to invitations.  The invitation that I feel is an absolute treasure are invitations made with seed paper.  When guests receive their invitations, they can take it and plant it.  Wildflowers (or whatever type of seed you have in the paper) will bloom from the seed and the recycled paper that is around the seed will serve as mulch for the new flowers.

It is important to state on the invitations that the baby shower is a green shower.  Ask guests to purchase organic baby gifts and to not use wrapping paper or to use recycled paper for wrapping.  If guests know what to expect, they can add to the green experience.

Gifts, Favors, and Prizes

Gifts should be organic and eco-friendly. Try to avoid a lot of packaging or use recycled paper.

For gifts to give guests as favors or prizes, a great idea would be practical household items. Or maybe as a big prize, a gift certificate to an eco-friendly spa or shop (if you have the budget).  If your guests are gardeners, accessories or plants for the garden are a nice choice.  Other ideas include organic body washes or lotions, and stationary made with seed paper so people can send lovely letters to friends and families in an eco-friendly way. Another great prize idea is gourmet organic tea, fair trade coffee, or organic chocolate.

Food

Go with a salad bar for a green shower and fill it with all sorts of green organic goodies from a mouth-watering Watermelon Stroller and Fruit Tray to different salads.  You could also alter the Chicken Caesar Wraps to be a Vegetarian Caesar Wrap (minus the chicken) and offer those as your main course.  There are many different dishes that you could offer that are both decorative and delicious.

Another idea is to go with the 'green' theme and serve green veggies, dips, and fruit in the color green.

If the mom-to-be and many of the guests are vegan, consider going with a vegan-only menu. In addition to ethical issues, animals raised for food have a big environmental footprint (particularly beef).

One point to make about your green food is to serve it on real dishes or recycled paper plates.

Games

Games can be similar to any baby shower and the key is to keep them green.  Try to avoid playing any of the games that require paper or use recycled paper if you do.  Instead play games like Baby Food by Mary Rudolph, using organic baby foods, Name Game contributed by Becca or Memory contributed by Rachelle.
