Baby Shower Centerpiece Ideas - Suggestions for Decorations

Are you seeking inspiration for baby shower centerpiece ideas?

Every great baby shower has a theme, usually one that is carried throughout each and every aspect. One great way to tie the theme into the party itself is through festive, decorative centerpieces.

Don't know where to start? That's okay - it's easy. There are three basic types of centerpieces for a baby shower: decorative, favors for guests, and gifts for the mother- and baby-to-be.

Let's start with the ideas in the decorative category. For this type of baby shower centerpiece ideas, they are designed to be eye-catching and thematically related to the baby shower itself. They can be pre-made and store-bought, or they can be created from some simple items and materials.

One simple, easy suggestion is balloons. Go to your local floral shop and pick out some baby-related mylar balloons as well as a few solid-color latex balloons. They'll tie them together in bunches of 3 to 5 balloons using curling ribbon. A tip would be to make sure the balloon-strings are at least 3 to 4 feet long, so that your guests can still see what's going on across the table!

Another decorative baby shower centerpiece idea is a single-stem flower in a small vase. At the center of each table, place a clear glass vase and a single stem white carnation inside. If you'd like to tie in the gender of the baby, get flower paint and spray the ends of the carnation in pink or blue! To complete this simple table topper, tie some pink, yellow, or blue ribbon around the vase.

One more great, decorative baby shower centerpiece idea is to go to a local craft store and pick up one clear-glass bowl for each table. Pick up some pink and blue colored rocks and gems for the bottom of the bowl, and also a few floating candles for each bowl. Put the rocks in, fill 2/3 full with water, put your floating candles in, and light. This will provide a soft glow at each table, giving guests a warm, comfortable feeling.

Another common suggestion for baby shower centerpiece ideas is some sort of a gift for each guest to take home. This is a great way to say a small and simple "Thank You" for coming to help celebrate.

Great, inexpensive gifts for this can include bath sets, lotions, scented candles, etc. This can be tied in as a centerpiece with some simple wrapping paper. Get several different prints of baby-themed wrapping paper. Wrap each gift and tie a pink or blue ribbon around them. Then arrange them at the center of the table. At the end of the party, remember to remind all guests to take a gift for themselves, as they will be easy to overlook.

Another great way to go for guest favor-centerpieces is to give something edible. A bag full of candy baby-bottles or gummy storks makes a great favor. Check out party stores for more edible centerpiece ideas!

The third way to go for baby shower centerpiece ideas is an item (or group of items) that, after the shower, can become gifts for the mom-to-be. For example, diaper cakes. A simple project that can be done in an hour or so, solely involving disposable (or cloth) diapers and ribbon. Make small multi-tiered cakes for each table, and a bigger one on the gift table. Use pink or blue ribbon to secure each tier. For specific instructions, do some online research and it's a cinch!

Another great example is bouquets of roses made up of baby socks. Using some floral tape and wire, some baby socks, a vase, and some baby's breath, you can make a beautiful bouquet of "roses" for each table. At the end of the day, mom can take them home with her and use them for baby.

All in all, there are so many ways to create an amazing baby shower centerpiece! Just use your resources and your own creativity, and the possibilities for baby shower centerpiece ideas are endless!
