Baby Shower Decorating Ideas - A Quick Guide Here are some quick baby shower decorating tips that youll love. Tie balloons and crepe paper to a high back chair or throne that the mom-to-be will sit in while she opens her gifts. By doing this you will place the partys attention on the mom-to-be. This will leave a lasting impression on your guests and it looks great in photographs. Plus, it makes the mom-to-be feel really special. This is a baby shower must. String crepe paper across the room in the shower theme colors. Any pastel colors will work for this decoration. Try soft pink, soft blue, yellow, and lime-green. You will be amazed at the amount of color this will bring into the room. If you are having a Mod Mom themed shower, for example, then lime green a purple would be the crepe paper colors that you would use to decorate the house. Decorate the outside of your home. Place a baby shower yard sign in the yard of the house where you are having the party. The yard sign looks like a realtors "for sale" sign and comes with adorable baby shower graphics. Or, place a large banner announcing the baby shower on the garage door. This will put your guests in a party mood as they enter your home. Some of the yard signs that you will find actually have an arrow on them, making it a great tool to use to help your guests find the party. Start at the beginning of your neighborhood and place the baby shower yard signs at all of the turns that your guests will need to make. Its fun for them and gets them into the party before they leave their car! Scatter colorful confetti on the tables at your baby shower. This is a low cost way to add a little flash and color to your party. The baby shower confetti comes in many varieties, colors, and shapes. You can find rubber ducky shapes, baby strollers, umbrella shapes, and even baby faces on party confetti. Your guests will think that this is so cute. If you are lucky enough to have an antique baby buggy or a doll baby buggy you will have a great gift holder. For this adorable idea place the baby carriage near the gift table to hold some of the mom-to-bes gifts. A baby shower always seems more fun when there is a baby buggy at the shower! Plus, it makes for great pictures of all of the gifts. One symbol that makes a baby shower more festive is our old friend the "Stork". The Stork is a fun theme for any baby shower. Try the stork activities such as scratch off baby shower games and matching games. The stork also appears on many name tags and other fun decorations that your guests will love. Arrange colorful helium filled balloons on each table. The easiest way to do this is to locate a party supply store the day of your baby shower and pick up the balloons already inflated and in arrangements. Or, you can buy the balloons prior to the party and go to any store that has helium (grocery stores, party stores) and for a small fee, they can blow the balloons up for you. This small touch will make any baby shower more festive. It is also a fun idea to put balloons on gift tables, hanging in doorways, and anywhere else that needs a little color. Incorporate an open umbrella into your shower decorations. The umbrella fits nicely into any baby shower theme at any time of year. It is best to use colorful umbrellas. Using small umbrellas in your guests drinks will get them the shower mood. Find pink or blue umbrellas to keep to your baby shower theme. Using any of these quick tips will help you to decorate your baby shower for little money. There are hundreds of other ideas that we have seen at baby showers that are just as cute. Remember to keep the decorating simply tasteful and you will be able to set the mood that you want at your baby shower. Have fun decorating!
Memorable and Unique Baby Shower Ideas Hosting a baby shower to welcome the pending arrival of someone close to you? Are you tired of playing the same games and seeing the same themes over and over again? Well, luckily these days there are plenty of creative ideas to help you plan something that will make your older relatives say "I wish theyd have done that in my day!" Make Room for Daddy First of all, its no longer necessary to quarantine baby showers to adult women only. Fathers are more involved in the birth and child care of their babies, so why not have the guys there for the fun? Child care isnt just a womans job anymore. In the old days, men werent even allowed in the delivery room. Everything baby-related was "womens business", no wonder why they were excluded from the shower. Today, more baby showers are including the friends and family of the expecting parents, including the guys and kids. Kid-friendly showers are also becoming more popular. Put out a few crafts or coloring books for the kiddies to help entertain them. For the guys, encourage them to bring something for "daddy". Daddy "tool belts" or "kits" are popular. Also, Daddy Diaper Showers are a hit. If the guys in your life want their own party, let them! Have some snacks and games for the guys separately, why not? Have a little game of blindfolded "Pin the Diaper on the Balloon" for a really fun time. You can even wait until after the baby is born and host a "See and Sip". This is much like an open house where couples come and mingle, just like a cocktail party, but bring gifts and see the new baby! Whoooo Wants to be on Your Nursery Wall? If ducks and bears are your thing, fine. But there are some other creatures that are gracing the walls of the nursery these days. Owls are all the rage. And its easy to see why, theyre cute! Owls have made their way to the baby shower scene as well. Everything from the invitations and paper goods to the guest books and favors are now easily found with these guys. Mother Goose A fun and interactive baby shower idea involves each guest bringing the baby a copy of their favorite childhood storybook. This helps mom and dad to build up their soon to be much needed library of bedtime stories. They can also bring a gift associated with the theme of the book like perhaps a stuffed white rabbit for "Alice in Wonderland". Just a Sprinkle Showers arent just for first-time mothers anymore. The second or third (and so on) child is just as important as the first one. Why not celebrate their upcoming arrivals as well? If mom and dad still have everything from the first baby, just host a "Sprinkle" instead of a full-blown "shower". Guests can bring a small gift for the parents or newly needed items for the baby rather than the all out "I need everything" theme from the first child. Sometimes an "already mom" still needs a thing or two. Perhaps its been a while since the last baby came and things were given away or sold. Or maybe this new arrival is a surprise! If mom and dad didnt see this one coming, they might need an extra hand getting things gathered together again. Pink or Blue? The Gender Reveal Shower is one of the hottest new trends in baby showers. There are several ways you can do this, but the most popular way to reveal the gender is inside the cake. The doctor gives a sealed envelope with the babys gender to the hostess of the shower. The hostess tells ONLY the baker who then bakes the inside of the cake pink or blue, depending on the gender. The cake is iced with a different color. Everyone then gathers around the cutting of the shower cake to see what the baby will be! The only trouble with this type of shower is that since your guests wont know what the gender is UNTIL the actual shower, they wont be able to purchase gender-related gifts for you. But its still a sweet notion of shared surprise, nevertheless. Its easy to see why this one is so popular. Reach out and Touch Someone Long distance baby showers are great for those couples who have moved away from their main friend and family base. It may not always be feasible for the couple to travel, especially when theyre expecting! But their nearest and dearest will still want to shower them with baby gifts. Luckily, technology has made this super easy for us now. Online gift registries and e-invites help you pull it all together. Simply ask mom to register for the baby shower online and the guests will know what to buy, the same as for a traditional shower. The guests then mail the packages to the home of the expecting parents. While youll miss one anothers company, the sentiment (and gifts) is still much appreciated. You may want to keep in mind the possibility of friends and family who arent too computer savvy. Mailing them a list of suggested items and a printed invitation explaining the situation is usually a good way to involve these not-so-techy loved ones. You can even mail them a baby shower favor to commemorate the event, the same as you would hand one out in person. A baby shower will be one of the most memorable days of a moms life. As families and traditions change, so do these celebrations. While the tried and true clothespin game (dont say "baby"!) is still fun, you can break the mold and host a baby shower as unique and trendy as the mommy-to-be.
