There are many things you can use for a baby shower centerpiece. Here’s 3 great ideas to get you started on your way to planning the perfect baby shower.

Balloons
If your shower has a festive theme, you can use balloons! I mean after all, what’s a celebration without balloons? Here’s all you need to do. Tie a stack of colorful balloons to a weight and place them on your table. Sprinkle some confetti around them or other decorations that you can find at your local discount party store and you have a simple, inexpensive solution. If you are working on a limited budget, then balloons are a great idea. You can even anchor the balloons on each table with any presents you may have received in advance of the baby shower. The great thing about this idea is your gifts will be wrapped with beautiful baby themed paper that can be perfect for creating an inviting focal point on each table.

Flowers
You can place a selection of your favorite flowers and arrange them in a beautiful basket. You can find these baskets at your local craft store. If you have a theme color you can incorporate it to the décor of your flower arrangement. Flower arrangements can add a fresh colorful touch to your table. You can add baby things such as toys, socks, washcloths, and baby bottles to make your centerpiece more festive and to match the theme of your shower. Don’t worry if you’re not creative. You can always buy these floral centerpieces ready-made online. Usually, you can find a wide variety of colors and themes that fit most popular themes.

Diaper Cake

Another centerpiece that is popular in baby showers is a newborn diaper cake. It’s our personal favorite. (psst, is that any surprise?…lol) Now, understand that a baby diaper cake is actually not an edible cake. It is a set of diapers arranged to resemble a traditional tiered real cake. The cake is then decorated with plush toys, baby newborn care items, and of course ribbons and bows. When it comes to diaper cakes the sky is the limit in terms of styles and choices. Plus the great thing about the diaper cake is that the diapers can then be used by the mom after the shower. This creates a very practical choice for the centerpiece as virtually nothing goes to waste.

The occasion of a baby shower is a happy occasion for a new mother and the baby on board. These 3 ideas can help move your decision process forward in planning a memorable baby shower. Get creative and have fun selecting your baby shower centerpiece using these tips.
