Baby Shower Table Decorations - Useful Tips and Pointers to Guide You

Are you scratching your head over your baby shower table decorations?

When planning a baby shower, one of the first things you think about its how the table will look. It is always satisfying to hear compliments on the table decorations and presentation.

You want to leave the guests in no doubt as to what the occasion is. Baby showers are simpler than many other occasions to set a glorious display on the table, as just the fact it is a baby shower lends itself to endless creative ideas.

There are thousands of themes, even aside from simply 'baby'. Here are some quick and easy ideas to help you get started on designing the perfect baby shower table decor.

Tips for Baby Shower Table Decoration

  • Size: The first step to consider for baby shower table decorations is how many people are coming. If it is an intimate affair, you would want the decorations to be a little more discreet than if you were hosting hundreds of guests. Keep this in mind before deciding on that 5 tier baby shower cake as a centerpiece!

  • Menu: Knowing how much food is going to be on the table will allow you to know how much room you have to work with for table decorations. Do you have room for centerpieces or only room for place cards and a simple flower arrangement? If you are determined to add teddy bears to the table, perhaps a larger table will help you accommodate both food and decorations.

  • Rent or Own: Many rental stores have an endless selection of not only tables, chairs, and the ordinary, but also decoration assortments. Some party rental outfits have complete themes, so whether it is a simple 'Baby' or more elaborate 'Disney' baby shower, you want to plan - look for a rental business that can supply you with everything from utensils to the magic castle centerpiece.

  • Table Centerpiece: The centerpiece will be the first thing the guests see, so make sure this piece of baby shower table decoration will set the exact mood you are looking for at your baby shower. The magic castle centerpiece we spoke of above will leave your guests in no doubt what your theme is for the baby shower. A great idea for a centerpiece is a 'diaper cake' that will double as a gift after the baby shower is over. If you want something more intimate, a number of smaller centerpieces along the table can be striking as well; small flower arrangements with little balloons spread along the length of the table can be very eye-catching.

    Other Decoration Tips

  • Having place cards that are baby themed is a great idea. Names rolled up and set inside of 4 oz baby bottles (the names will unroll and be displayed inside) is a unique idea for baby shower table decoration.

  • Having some food that is themed to your baby shower is fun. If it is a sports theme for a baby boy, you might want the cake to be in the shape of a baseball field or hockey rink.

  • If you are having a particular 'theme' such as Disney, you might want to carry that theme out from invitations right through to the decorations, including the baby shower table decorations; and perhaps if the parents are avid Disney people as many people are, even the gifts can be suggested to follow the theme. It is easy to create a Tinkerbell theme for a girl, or a Pirates of the Caribbean theme for a boy baby shower. Name place cards can be in the shape of a pirate ship, or on a wand or miniature wings. When using a theme, it is easy to find napkins, tablecloths, and even paper decorations that all match, to make your baby shower beautiful.

  • Give yourself plenty of time to decorate. There is always something last minute that people have forgotten or need to 'run out and get', so with plenty of time to prepare, you take a lot of the stress out of planning and hosting the perfect baby shower.
