While common baby shower floral motifs tend towards all pinks and purples and are often reserved for girl babies, the wildflower palette strikes out in all directions and lends itself well to gender-neutral celebrations. From invitations to table runners, consider unconventional and fun pops of orange, periwinkle, and dark crimson with the pinks and purples to give your shower a festive summer wildflower motif.
It’s not really a party without flowers, right? Many florists will be happy to include wildflowers in their cultivated flower arrangements and if you’re being budget-wise in the shower planning, picking your own bouquets from local hills and roadsides is an especially great way to bring wildflowers into the mix yourself. Remember that wildflowers often don’t have the “vase life” of cultivated varieties, so picking and arranging the morning of the shower is best. If you have flowering hills nearby, you may even consider a nature walk and flower picking as part of your shower activities.
