Baby showers can be done really well, but they can start to look a little tacky, too. Having a baby is such a big deal and the event should be celebrated with style. I’ve seen many great ideas for throwing an elegant baby shower, and here are 10 of my favorites:

Macarons are popular baby shower treats, but you can also do candies like jelly beans and malt balls – all pastel colors, of course.

Orange isn’t a color you often see at baby showers but I think it looks really nice! The bow on the cake is a nice touch, too.

Purple is another great color for a baby shower, as long as it’s used delicately like it is here.

This is another nice outdoor setup. It’s nice to keep the snacks healthy for the new momma, too.

I love every one of the ideas above. What would you add to an elegant baby shower?
