Flowers & Decor to Match Your Favorite Baby Books

Where the Wild Things Are

Welcome a “little wild thing” into the world with a Where the Wild Things Are baby shower. With striking, one-of-a-kind imagery and a story that talks about a “forest that grew and grew,” you can let your imagination run “wild” with decorating. Of course, you’ll need plenty of fresh greenery! Place containers of large, leafy plants inside the venue, hang branches or vines on the wall or place colorful flower centerpieces with lush greenery on each table. Bring the “wildness” of nature inside for this baby shower, and you’ll have nailed it.

The Rainbow Fish

Colorful, cool, and stunning, a baby shower based on The Rainbow Fish should be filled with rich, jewel-like colors, deep blues, and silver accents. Decor ideas include putting up images of the rainbow fish on the walls “swimming around,” a colorful rainbow fish cake, and sea-inspired napkins, cups, and tablecloth. For the most important piece of decor and to elevate the shower, select several floral arrangements with blooms that are equally rich in color. Flower ideas include dark pink roses, blue larkspur, green mums, purple irises, and green hydrangea. Plus, don’t forget the silver accents! Use a silver tablecloth, have silver balloons, or use silver vases for the flowers. A baby shower with such beautiful rich colors will make for great photos and great memories.

Goodnight Moon

A well-known and loved classic, Goodnight Moon will undoubtedly bring back fond memories for all the guests of this storybook-themed baby shower. The decor for this theme should be easy with simple colors of red, blue, green, and yellow. Keep the colors within these four basic hues. Add a stuffed rabbit and images of the moon and stars either hanging from the ceiling or taped to the walls. For the flowers, choose blooms that are just as bright such as yellow mums and red roses with dark greenery in a blue vase. And, don’t forget the red balloon!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Book worms and foodies love a Very Hungry Caterpillar-themed baby shower. Make sure your flower selection has plenty of leafy greenery to match the variegated green colors used in the caterpillar’s body. Add bold red and yellow blooms to perfectly match this story’s color scheme. Then, have fun with the food options by including snacks featured in the book such as apples, pears, strawberries, oranges, watermelon, and desserts of chocolate cake, ice cream cones, lollipops, and cupcakes for a fun and delicious baby shower.

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

An adorable book with a cute mouse, a baby shower based If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is fun, charming, and perfect for moms-to-be who love cookies! Choose decor items that match the soft greens and blues in the book and include images of the mouse, or have a cute stuffed mouse and plenty of chocolate chip cookies. Most of all, elevate the shower with floral decor that includes soft, simple colors, like red, green, blue, orange, and yellow.
