BABY SHOWER DECORATIONS - PAGE 2
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 can be used to hold down balloons or they can be used as napkin rings.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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).
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!
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
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!
- 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!
Diaper 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!
- A cute baby shower decoration idea is to use preemie diapers as
cupholders. Thanks to Jennifer for this idea.
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
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!
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
pink and brown baby shower ideas because its the ideal color pattern
for these types of modern girl themes.
