Decorating a Baby Shower There are numerous baby decorations, table centerpieces and baby shower supplies you can use for decorating a baby shower event. With so many baby shower accessories to choose from, you can create any theme, color scheme or presentation for your shower event imaginable. Balloons One of the most common decorations is balloons. You can tie a balloon with pink or blue ribbon on each of the chairs of the reception table or use just one in the center of the table. You can find balloons in a variety shapes, sizes and colors. Popular styles are the Its A Boy in blue or the Its a Girl in pink in the latex style of balloons. They also come with ponies, baby feet, Noahs Ark and many nursery rhyme characters which would reflect on your baby shower event. Maybe youre having a Prince or Princess themed baby shower; there are balloons that are shaped as a princess or prince crown. Another idea using balloons as baby accessories are pre made gifts which you have a mini balloon, maybe some coordinated candy inside a ceramic such as a baby bootie, choo choo train, or even a ABC block container . These can also be used as your table centerpieces, then, draw names at the end of your baby shower and give them away as a favor. The container can be used after to plant flowers or greenery for the babys room. Party Streamers Another baby accessory used for showers is streamers. These have been used for many years for just about any event and are still popular today for decorating and a traditional decoration. You should color coordinated them with your theme, or another idea is to use a couple of colors and twist them together such as pink and purple or blue and yellow. You can also use cutouts of baby bottles, pacifiers, diapers or even themed such as yellow rubber ducks across the wall or the reception hall. Party Supplies Dont forget about the baby shower supplies like the paper plates, napkins and tableware. You can go to your local party store and find all of these accessories to match your shower theme and colors. You can find the baby shower party supplies all in a kit containing the accessories needed so you wont have to hunt down all the individual baby shower items. The baby shower kits contain the paper plates for the dinner and the dessert, paper cups, napkins, tableware, balloons, streamers and even the table centerpiece with enough supplies for partys up to 16 and 32 guests. With so many cute designs and baby themes, they will serve as decorations as well as for your shower supplies. Candle Favors Heres a unique idea, use baby food jars and put votive candles inside, then tie a ribbon with a bow on each and place them around the shower hall for decorations. Or, paint the baby jars in the color or colors that will match your shower. Instead of putting a candle inside the jar, put candy in them instead. Candles are often used for decorations at baby showers and even for baby favors for the guests. You can find candle favors in many styles and colors which will match shower decorations. Theres candles in shapes of lolly pops, baby bottles, pinwheels, teddy bear rocking horses and even themes such as Bun in the Oven. Unique Shower Decorations Hang an umbrella from the ceiling underneath a shower table. Fill it with balloons and tie curly ribbon to dangle down as small streamers or tie small favors to hang down such as baby pacifiers, bottles or even baby toys and rattles will work also. Diaper cakes are a nice compliment to a baby shower as a table centerpiece. Stuff them with baby accessories which the mom will be able to use after the baby is born. Fill with baby lotions and shampoos, baby oil, baby bottles, pacifiers, rattles or any baby essential you can think of. Of course with the baby diaper cake, the mom to be will have extra diapers. Baby sock bouquets is another decoration idea that you can easily make and use as decorations for each table and you can even make a baby sock corsage for the mom to wear. After the shower, now the mom will have socks for the new baby as well.

Everything You Need to Know About Baby Shower Etiquette Throwing a baby shower is such an intimate and wonderful honor. It shows the mother-to-be your commitment and excitement for her experience. She will be thrilled and excited for the new addition to the family. A baby shower should be fun, so if you are feeling a little stressed or unsure of the process, read below for your one-stop shop baby shower etiquette lesson. You will feel more at ease and comfortable to be hosting. Who hosts the baby shower A baby shower can be hosted by anyone other than the mother-to-be and her mother. Historically, the shower was hosted by someone outside the family, but today, a sister, aunt, best friend, coworker or anyone else can take the honor of hosting the shower. When do you throw a baby shower It is advised to host the baby shower 2-3 months before the due date of the mother to be. This way you are not too close to the due date in the event that the mother-to-be delivers early. This also allows the mother time to make exchanges or returns on items, purchase items needed that were not given at the shower, as well as give the parents time to decorate and display gifts in the babys room. Where do you host a baby shower Today, a baby shower can be held pretty much anywhere: a home, restaurant, country club, church, outdoor park or backyard. Please keep in mind the weather and time of day as important factors in considering a place to host. Suggestions indicate that hosting at a home is the most preferred and comforting place for a baby shower. Who do I invite to the shower This is a very intimate and special occasion, I recommend that you speak to the mother-to-be or her mother to attain a guest list of all those that she would want to share this experience with. This will allow you to avoid overlooking any guests that the mother-to-be would want there. You will want to consider availability and schedules of guests to ensure that you pick a date that will work for them. Historically, baby showers were women only, but now-of-days it is fine to invite men to the event. Just keep in mind that allowing men could change the atmosphere of the girl bonding experience, as well as might be uncomfortable for men. In some cases, men would arrive near the end of the shower to congratulate the mother-to-be and help carry out gifts. Who pays for the shower Customarily, the person hosting the shower will pay for the event. However, to be more budget friendly it is perfectly alright to have multiple people throw the shower together and split the cost. What baby shower gifts does one bring Bringing a gift to a shower is encouraged. Most of the gifts are practical gifts, such as: diapers, formula, clothes or anything that is essential for a new mom to have. Ask the mother-to-be if she has a registry. This will make it easy for you to know what she needs and wants. If there is no registry, you can always ask the mother, sister or host what recommendations that they would have. You can also get a pampered gift, such as a spa treatment, lotions or bath salts for the mother-to-be. She will be thrilled and in desperate need of pampering after the birth. There is no wrong gift, it is the thought that counts and trust me, she will use everything she receives. Just remember that a baby shower is such a special gift to the mother-to-be. Dont sweat the small stuff, just the fact that you made it happen shows your thoughtfulness and love. She will adore anything and everything that you have done for her. So give yourself a pat on the back, relax and have fun. Heather Umphrey is the author and the proud owner of mybabybuddy.com.
