Location is key

When you’re thinking about how to throw a Boho Baby Shower, location is key! Although you Possible throw a Boho shower indoors, this theme really lives up to nature. If you have space in your garden, it works well in a shady spot under some trees. The benefit of hosting a party in your own garden is being close to your kitchen and bathroom.

However, if this is not possible, I have found some beautiful Boho showers thrown in a local park or woods. Just rope someone in to help carry all the goodies to the party location!

This is a super easy party dress for! Think about it florals, floaties and dresses! When you send out invitations, it’s a good idea to give guests a loose dress code.
