Vegan Baby Shower

Green Themes, Eco-Friendly Baby Shower Collection

A Vegan baby shower takes vegetarian, 'going green' and eco-friendly to the max. Being Vegan primarily refers to avoiding food containing animal products. This includes, for example: milk, cheese, eggs and any meats (where 'meats' is inclusive of poultry and fish). This makes the requirements for a Vegan baby shower a little more stringent than those for a Vegetarian Baby Shower.

The choice to be Vegan may be health related, philosophical, religious or all of these. Many Vegans extend their philosophy/ethic to include avoiding any product where animals may have been mistreated or harmed during the product's creation or manufacture. Once you start looking into this, you might be surprised at the depth of this subject.

Vegans have a strong love and respect for ALL living things, so please don't make the mistake of thinking that Vegans are weird. They are actually some of the most compassionate and caring people you will ever meet!

Find out more about Veganism on WikiPedia or at the Vegan Society web site.

Ideally a baby shower for the vegan mother-to-be should welcome a new life into the world without harming any other living thing.

A good general starting point might be meeting the basic requirements of a vegan menu. After that you can try to minimize the use of products derived from animals that may have been mistreated or harmed. When you think about it, you will quickly realise that this is not as simple as it sounds. Kermit the Frog once famously said: "It's not easy being Green". Well, he should try being a Vegan!

Fortunately there is a steadily growing trend toward eco-friendly, organic and vegetarian products, as well as vegan foods. These even include some wickedly delicious chocolate sweets. Veganism is no longer just a hippy trend. Supermarkets have aisles now with vegan products, usually at least a little more expensive ... Veganism has become big business.


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


there is a little room to move since Veganism is primarily a dietary concern.

Avoid unecessary waste which would include the use of balloons, streamers and confetti. Instead, go with more natural, eco-friendly choices like simple flower arrangements and floral bouquets (preferably from your own or a nearby garden).

Depending on the time of year, an outdoor, garden or park setting may well be an ideal location for a vegan baby shower. A natural outdoor setting will provide you with most of your visual decoration needs. You can bring the seasonal colours up close and personal by combining flowers with some sprigs of foliage for the table setting, with perhaps a few beeswax candles that will add a naturally fragrant finish.

For an eco-friendly babyshower with a truly small Carbon Footprint you can't beat a paperless electronic invitation system like email, the telephone or a managed online RSVP service.

If you must have paper invitation cards, then make them really good so that they will stand alone as keep-sakes. Of course these will preferably be made of recycled or hemp paper. Another option, for a truly personal touch, is to have an artistic friend with some calligraphy skills write your invitations on handmade recycled paper. Please note that this last approach may not be practical for large numbers of complex 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.

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 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.
