7 No-Frill Baby Shower Ideas

I’m a girly girl and like my frill as much as the next girl, but was recently at a baby shower and thought it was kind of over-the-top. Though it was pretty, the buckets of flowers, lace, and plenty of ruffles all seemed a bit much. Sure the mama-to-be was having a girl, but it didn’t fit her style or personality. It got me thinking … most showers I’ve attended are all the same. No matter the mom or gender of the baby, they’re all frills.

So I did a little digging and found baby shower ideas that showcase individuality, from rustic campfire to whimsical fairytale. Most importantly, all represent the personalities of the women being honored! Now I am determined to throw a no-frill baby shower for my next friend who has a bun in the oven. Here is some inspiration for your expecting friend or family member:
