Baby Shower



Balloons - If you know that mommy-to-be is expecting a boy, decorate with blue and white balloons. If she is having a girl, use pink balloons instead of blue. Balloons can be floated on the ceiling, tied to chairs, and used as part of table centerpieces.

Streamers - Mix two or more colors that are part of your theme. Twist the streamers and hang them on the walls, ceilings, doorways, and stairs.

Baby Bottles and Food Jars - Baby bottles and food jars make nice decorations when filled with colorful candies, such as M&M's or jelly beans. They can also be used to anchor helium-filled balloons.

Baby Bathtub - If you are serving punch, serve it in a new baby bath tub instead of a punch bowl. Float fruit and even a rubber ducky for fun. It's a cute way to serve drinks and doubles as a gift! Another great use of bathtubs is to fill them with a variety of baby bath items such as soaps, shampoo, wash cloths, towels and bath toys including a rubber ducky.

Teddy Bears - Everyone loves teddy bears! Decorate the room with teddy bears as table centerpieces. You can find teddy bear pattern tablecloths at most party stores and we love the idea of spreading Gummy Bear candies randomly on the tables. Put the finishing touch on the teddy bear theme by serving teddy bear shaped cookies for dessert.

Baby Books - Fill baskets with favorite baby books and place them on tables. These baskets not only makes a nice decoration, but baby and mommy will have a great library of baby books. Add some pacifiers and a rattle to each basket.

Pacifiers - Pacifiers can be used to hold down balloons or they can be used as napkin rings.

Stuffed Animals - Stuffed animals make for great decorations. Noah's Ark is a fun theme in which you decorate the room with pairs of stuffed animals and assign table seating by animals.

Transportation Toys - When a baby boy is on the way, decorate with cars, trucks, airplanes, boats and rockets.

Nursery Rhyme Decorations - Decorate baby shower with nursery rhyme characters like Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, a cow jumping over a moon, and other favorites. Most party stores will have plates, cups and napkins with the most popular nursery rhymes.

Rubber Duckies - Decorate the room with baby rubber duckies and ducky soaps. Serve food on Ducky paper plates, cups and napkins and continue the theme using yellow balloons, streamers and a big yellow cake with a big yellow ducky on top.

Animal Pullie - With all of the fun scrap booking papers, select the prints that fit your color(s) or theme. First, using cardboard, cut out the silhouette of an animal (or truck, car etc. depending on your theme) Cover each side in your selected scrap book paper. Trim the edged to the shape of the animal. Using toilet paper rolls make the "wheels". Use yarn as the "pull", like an old fashioned pull toy. Use a variety of "shapes or animals" for these easy decorations.

Baby Bottle Salt & Pepper Shakers - Purchase baby bottle nipples and use them as salt and pepper shakers (poke more holes, cut out a round circle and wrap plastic wrap and Blue ribbon to hold the salt and pepper, and lay them around the food tables).

Rubber Ducky Pond - get a good size glass bowl and place colorful rocks at the bottom (use baby colors). Fill the bowl with water and get yellow rubber duckies and let them float around! A very cute baby shower centerpiece for each table. Thanks Renee!

Baby Diaper and Bib Center Piece - Use apple cider or champagne bottles with baby diapers on the bottom and a bib tied around the the top. You can decorate the bib or diaper and write, 'It's a girl" or "It's a boy" or "Baby on the way", with the date. Tie balloons on top. Get even more creative and make a label for the bottle! Craft stores usually sell blank baby bibs. You can also put confetti in one of the diapers and at the end of the party, have each table open the diaper really fast and the one that springs confetti wins a table gift for everyone sitting at that table. Thanks to Jessica for these ideas!

Baby Clothes Line - Create a clothes line across the room with baby clothing like: bibs, diapers, onesies, and other baby products that the mommy-to-be can use. Hang the line where the mother to be sits or across the whole room. This can either be done with paper cut outs if you are on a budget. Thanks to Celia for this idea.

Bath Tub Cooler - Fill a baby bath tub with ice and place bottled drinks in it. Use it as a cooler and it can be given as a baby shower gift after the party. You can also have fun and make punch and milk, sticking the drink in baby bottles with twisty tops for the guests! Thanks to Chedi for this info!

Floral Baby Potty Chair - Purchase a potty chair and take it to your local florist. Have them design a floral arrangement in the potty bowl. Use this as a centerpiece for the gift table. It's cute and also makes a very useful gift for later. Thanks to visitor Linda for this great idea!

Baby Clothesline - Tie a string across a room and hang onsie's in infant sizes with clothespins/safteypins as a decoration. This is great as the onsies can be used by the mother-to-be after the baby shower. Other items can also be hung on the string that are light such as diapers, wash cloths, etc. Thanks to Sandra for this idea!

Baby Shower GiftDiaper Gift Wrap - A great idea if you are giving out baby shower gifts is to wrap them like a diaper (or use a real one). You can use construction paper and fold it like you are doing a diaper which is very cute when giving out the baby shower gifts. Use different colors. Thanks to our baby shower visitor Bree for this great idea!

Cup Holders - A cute baby shower decoration idea is to use preemie diapers as cupholders. Thanks to Jennifer for this idea.

Candle Decorations and Gifts - Find glass baby powder scented candles with tops at a craft store. Around the candle use 4-5 inch width assorted colored tulle and tied with a bow. These can be used as decoration or place holders for each baby shower guest. Each baby shower guest can be given one as they leave with a small card attached thanking them for coming to the baby shower. Thank you to Angela for this idea!

In the display pictured to the right, Patsy used paper napkins in the color to match for either a girl or boy, cotton balls and ribbon, bathroom size water cups which she filled with candy kisses.

Ducky Punch Bowl - Make your favorite blue or pink punch and let 2-3 rubber duckies float in it. Serves as a beverage and decoration. Thanks to Ilyasa for a wonderful baby shower decoration and gift idea!

Girl Baby Showers - When looking at baby showers for girls, they have evolved throughout the years. These days you have monkey girl baby showers and rock star themes. Usually, the baby shower host pairs these themes with pink and brown baby shower ideas because its the ideal color pattern for these types of modern girl themes.
