Vegetarian Baby Shower

Green Themes, Eco-Friendly Baby Shower Collection

It has been suggested, based on research, that if everyone became a vegetarian, we could reduce our global greenhouse gas emmissions by up to one third.

Firstly however, for anyone planning a Vegetarian baby shower it's important to note that the term Vegetarian has a variety of interpretions and is not as specific for example, as Vegan.

Being a Vegetarian is generally seen as avoiding meat products. For some Vegetarians this includes fish (or seafood in general) and poultry, for others it does not. These variations are often the result of differing reasons for being Vegetarian. For example: Diet and health, religion and/or ideology. It's important to understand and respect the reasons for someone either needing or choosing to be a Vegetarian.

So a first step will be for the host to determine whether there will be any specific inclusions or exclusions for a Vegetarian baby shower.

Fortunately there is a steadily growing trend toward eco-friendly and organic products, as well as vegatarian foods. Finding the supplies you need for a vegetarian baby shower should be quite easy and there are a wealth of vegetarian recipes available to suit all tastes.


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


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).

Consider using

As suggested in the name, vegetables are at the core of this theme. And we all know that vegetables are good, don't we? Of course for some that may bring up memories of 'being made to eat their vegetables' as children. But seriously, in an age of rampant obesity related illnesses, vegetables can save your life ... they really are good. So the trick here is to portray our humble vegetables as the heroes of our theme.

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, and of course preferably on recycled or hemp paper. Another option, for a truly personal touch, is to have an artistic friend with some calligraphy skill 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.
