Baby Shower Centerpieces – Have Your Shower Standout by Unusual Table Decoration
What is the big hit to any baby shower? The baby shower centerpieces are no doubt-ably the best answers.
Traditional baby shower centerpiece ideas often revolve around floral arrangements with a few balloons, though the modern era welcomes inventive styles for just about everything.
Floral baby shower centerpieces surrounded with candles are perfect gifts for new baby girls or baby boys. Make sure to use flowers that are in season for greater freshness and use baby bottles as vases for fresh flowers.
You can purchase items needed to make centerpieces from party supply stores, craft stores, Dollar Stores, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Shopko and Target. Online baby shower stores will carry table centerpieces of a much wider variety than the local merchants. Remember to stick your centerpiece to the theme and color scheme.
Look for something unusual? If you are baking a baby shower cake as the centerpiece, have guests arrive early to help the cake decoration – you want to make a surprise for the new mom right?
Nothing can be more appealing to have a fabulous diaper cake. It’s a three-for-one baby shower gift (a centerpiece, a baby gift basket and its baby items can be used for your shower games).
A gift basket can be a nice centerpiece too. It’s lined with a receiving blanket and filled with all kinds of baby items. To make your gift basket centerpieces more appealing, add a soft toy with helium balloons attached to the blanket handles, and wrapped in cellophane with a pretty bow.
Putting some glass pebbles in the bottom of a clear glass bowl and two-thirds fill the bowl with water. Floating frogs, rubber ducks, or any plastic cartoon toys. The coolest idea is to have a family frogs or ducks, and add a few drops of blue food coloring to the water to make it like a pond.
For an Asian theme shower party, you can purchase Japanese lanterns at party supplies or craft stores. Use one lantern as the base of each arrangement and surround it with bamboo pots or votive candles. And have a traditional Japanese table setting to complement your baby shower centerpiece.
Most of baby shower hostesses make their own centerpieces as they love such a creative activity as well as it shows their love and support to the mom-to-be.
If none of the baby shower centerpieces above knock your socks off…close you eyes. What do you see? A giant Rubber Duck, a green plant topped with a stuffed Pooh, or any stand alone items related to your theme?
Just unleash your creativity and open your mind to new and memorable ideas for unique baby shower centerpieces. Some of the most elegant, unusual and unforgettable decorative touches can exist even within a strict budget.
Whatever you do, photograph your masterpiece before your guest of honor takes it home!
