If you’re throwing a boho-themed baby shower, this post is for you…
Scrolling through Pinterest and Instagram is great for boho baby shower inspiration…
But, unless you’re planning to hire a party planner ($$$$$), it’s up to you to scout out all those cool decorations for yourself.
I’ve done this for you 🙂

I’ve curated the best boho party decor I could find and read all the reviews to make sure you’re getting high quality stuff for reasonable prices.
Literally all you have to do is make sure you’re logged into your Amazon account and ‘add to cart’.
*I strongly suggest doing this on a computer, rather than your phone — way easier.
And voila, you’ve got the makings of a gorgeous boho baby shower!

Boho baby shower table decor
An instagrammable lunch or dinner table isn’t complete without things like woven plate chargers, rustic napkin rings, and a table runner (or table cloth).
Inspo from @thehiphoorayco
Don’t forget vases filled with flowers, greenery, or pampas grass (which is the ultimate boho favorite).
The great news:
ALL of the items in this section can be reused for future parties and/or home decor.
Check out these tablescape additions below…
Woven plate chargers
Sticking a braided hyacinth mat under each plate amps up the boho vibe big time.
This comes as a 6 pack and it often goes on sale.
If you can snag them for less than $3 a piece, I’d jump on the deal. Check the price here.
(Note: You can use these over and over again for future parties!)
Wooden napkin rings with jute tassels
Whether you’re doing paper or fabric napkins, these wooden napkin rings with jute tassels will look fantastic on the table.
WOODEN NAPKIN RINGS WITH TASSELS
These come as a 10-pack and they’re very reasonably priced, particularly given the high quality. Don’t forget, you can use them for future events as well!
It looks great on the table or interspersed throughout a balloon garland.
4-FT EXTRA FLUFFY PAMPAS GRASS
The only problem is that it’s a gamble to order real pampas grass online, as it commonly arrives broken.
It’s also shockingly expensive. (This blows my mind as it grows wild along the highways here in California).
All of this said, I’ve narrowed down your best options for real and faux papas grass.
- The large faux pampas grass (above) comes with 3 fluffy stems. Reviewers are thrilled. They’re loving how full the branches are and that they don’t shed like real pampas. Get them here.
- These real pampas grass stems are huge! They’re 4 feet tall! They’re not exactly cheap, but they’re very well reviewed so it may be worth it. Get them here.
- This white and brown pampas grass is MUCH more budget friendly than the others. They’re a lot smaller and less fluffy, but they come in a pack of 30. You could separate them into multiple small vases, or have them all together in one. Get them here.
- One more budget friendly option: this 60-pack of richly colored pampas grass. With that many stems, you’ll have lots of options for how to display them. Get them here.
(I’d personally go with option #1, the top-rated faux pampas grass, and then put them in a vase in my entryway after the baby shower’s over. But choose whichever you like best!)

Boho baby shower photo backdrops and wall decor
When it comes to the decor hanging in the background, here’s my advice if you’re on a budget:
Instead of a “watered down” boho themed shower where decorations are spread far apart, have 1 or 2 spectacular spots for photos.
These spots might include:
- A gift table or gift opening station
- The lunch/dinner table
- A designated backdrop for photos
In whichever spot(s) you choose, DO IT UP! Make it something eye-catching and special.
What NOT to do is buy lots of little decorations and spread them out over a huge venue. They’ll get swallowed up by the big space and won’t get the glory they deserve.
Here are a few amazing backdrops for a boho baby shower…
Boho rainbow wall hanging
Nothing says boho more than an earth-toned rainbow!
This gorgeous 4.5-foot wall hanging has almost entirely 5-star reviews. It’s made of high-grade cotton utility fabric.
Not only is this an adorable photo backdrop during the party, but it’s also a sweet addition to the baby’s nursery!
Boho macrame tapestry
Reviewers are thrilled with the quality of this tapestry. (It’s seriously gorgeous).
If you can snag it for less than $35, it’s a steal.
Woodland animal backdrop
This enormous backdrop is 7-feet wide!
It’s perfect for a boho baby shower, even if you’re not technically doing a woodland animal twist.
This wall hanging has overwhelming 5-star reviews! Just be sure to leave time to iron out the creases before displaying it.
Next, I’m going to share my favorite DIY balloon garland kits for a boho baby shower. If you’d rather skip ahead, use these links:
Boho baby shower balloons
If the majestic balloon garlands you’re seeing on Pinterest and Instagram look intimidating, I’ve got good news for you:
They’re SUPER easy (and cheap) to make.
Depending on your pace, you could probably assemble the entire balloon garland in 1 to 2 hours. Maybe faster!
Inspo from @thesocialset_up
Garlands are an excellent bang for your buck (as long as you have a little patience) since they’re so impressive and large.
If you decide to go for it, I’ve got a detailed guide for you that I put together after I made a garland for Aden’s first birthday.
P.S. Don’t forget to buy an electric balloon inflator to make this SO much faster and easier. I really don’t suggest taking on this project without one.
Sage, white, and gold garland
SAGE, WHITE + GOLD GARLAND KIT
The kit comes with everything you need: balloons of different sizes, a balloon strip (also called balloon tape), and balloon glue.
Lots of reviewers recommended grabbing a second kit for extra fullness like the photo above. Here’s a perfect kit to combine it with!
And if you want the faux eucalyptus leaves, get them here.
All you need to have handy is string or hooks to secure the garland to the wall.
P.S. I’m reminding you again about the electric balloon inflator! It’s crucial and worth every penny.
White, gold, and peachy blush
Here’s another gorgeous option!
WHITE, GOLD & PEACHY BLUSH GARLAND KIT
This kit also comes with everything you need.
Don’t forget to grab an electric balloon pump sold separately.
And again, be sure to read my detailed tips for how to assemble your own balloon garland.
Boho baby shower statement decorations
If you really want to take your boho baby shower to the next level, these large decorations will look fantastic. They’ll give all of your photos that “extra something”…

Take a peek at this gorgeous setup a real mom had for her baby’s first birthday!
Which reminds me: you can re-use this for future birthday parties too.
It’s also adorable in the nursery.
If you can snag this stunning lace tent for less than 50 bucks, it’s a steal! Check the price here.
You may also like this mustard-colored teepee or this simple gender neutral one.
Transparent balloon boxes
You can put whatever color balloons you want inside! Or, for a twist, fill them with faux greenery, tissue paper, or toys!
P.S. Reviewers recommend using double sided tape! (It’s not expensive; get this one!)
Boho baby shower partyware
Whether you’re planning a formal sit-down meal or a casual buffet, you’re going to need plates, napkins, cutlery, and cups.
Here’s some trendy (and well-rated) boho baby shower partyware.
I’m obsessed with these cute and friendly llama plates!
They’re perfect for a casual boho baby shower; you’re guaranteed to receive compliments.
Grab the matching llama napkins too!
Nothing screams “boho” more than this next set! This brownish orangey color is super trendy right now, and so are boho rainbows (on the cups)!
The above set also comes in other colors. (1) Green and brown tribal/animal theme and (2) tropical jungle in earth tones.
Next, check out these gorgeous dark coral and metallic gold paper plates!
If you’re into the “boho chic” vibe, you might like these rose gold paper plates! Simple and stunning.
And how about these floral plates rimmed with gold foil! …
Grab the matching napkins too (they’re even prettier than the plates)!
More boho paper plates you might like:
Don’t feel like your napkins have to “match” your plates and cups. Sometimes it’s fun to mix it up, as long as you stay within your boho theme.
Here are some lovely paper napkins for your boho baby shower…
These feather napkins are subtle yet SO pretty.
I’m also a huge fan of incorporating cacti into a boho themed baby shower. These are precious.
These pink cactus napkins come with matching plates and matching tumblers!
And here’s some more cactus for you (how cool are these?!)
These would be cute with any plates that have yellow gold.
More napkins you may like for your boho baby shower:
- Mustard yellow with scalloped edge (a very hot color right now)
- Boho floral in vibrant colors
- Greenery with baby woodland animals
On to utensils!
My all-time favorite plastic cutlery is this rose gold set below. You’re going to be sad to throw it away after the baby shower.
For less than a dollar per guest, this is the perfect elegant boho baby shower cutlery! See a real customer’s video here!
If you like this look but you’re doing yellow gold, get these similar ones in gold!
Whether you’re serving water, soda, juice, or alcohol, these should do the trick!
These first ones are technically meant for coffee, but I would use them for regular drinks too (without the lid). They’re substantial and I’m in love with the gold texture!
More pretty gold paper cups to consider…
Now for some rose gold! These are pure class. Obsessed.
You can even grab these amazing rose gold straws to go with them!

Rounding out our list with these beautiful bohemian elements that will be the icing on the cake at a boho baby shower!
Boho dream catcher
These boho dream catchers are SO SO pretty. I would get as many as you can squeeze into your budget and hang them around the table or from the teepee.
Reviewers are thrilled with the quality and say they look even better in person!
These super fluffy large paper flowers are a show stopper.
They definitely require a little time and patience, but the result is GORGEOUS. Plus, they’re the perfect boho colors.
Use them as table decor or hang them overhead.
This review is super helpful and has a picture so you can see what they look like in person.
Nothing creates more of a magical atmosphere than little white lights overhead.
If your baby shower is at night or during the early evening, this would be a must-have in my book!
