Your Guide: 5 Adorable Baby Shower Decorations
No matter how you choose to decorate your baby shower, it’s a good idea to choose a theme and then incorporate these decor ideas into it. You can coordinate colors and styles to make it feel cohesive and totally Pinterest worthy!
Balloons have served as a staple decoration for baby showers through the years! Here are a few ideas on how to make your balloon decorations modern and fresh!
- Use metallic letter balloons to spell out the baby’s name, a shower catch-phrase, “Baby Girl”, etc.
- Create a photo backdrop. Suspend 25+ balloons at varying heights to create a solid wall of balloons that guests can pose in front of with the mama-to-be.
- Create a customized balloon in a specific color with a saying to decorate all throughout the shower.
For a whimsical touch to any baby shower, look no farther than tissue paper pom-poms. They make beautiful and feminine baby shower decor.
You can suspend them from the ceiling (if your indoors). If you’re outside, try hanging them from tree branches or on a fence. Or simply cluster them together for a fun centerpiece.
You can purchase them in a variety of colors at most party stores or you can buy tissue paper and do-it-yourself!
Here’s a helpful tutorial on how to make your own DIY tissue paper pom-poms that we like!
Create a display or decoration using photos that are meaningful to the mama-to-be. They might be copies of every sonogram photo she ever got from her doctor, prints of her maternity photo shoot, etc.
You can even have a photo guessing game using photos of mom, dad, grandmas, and grandpas as babies. Invite guests to guess which photo belongs to which person! They’ll have a great time imagining what features baby will inherit from their parents and grandparents.
Bunting or Banners
Make a big statement with a customized banner or bunting at the focal point of the room or space. It’s a perfect opportunity to establish the theme of your shower.
Here are a few ideas to help you decide what to put on your baby shower banner.
- Hello Baby!
- Welcome Baby!
- Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
- It’s A Girl!
- Baby’s name
A banner is an important centerpiece for every baby shower. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and get creative! That’s what will make it special.
It also makes for a great photo opp, so keep that camera close by!
Greenery adds a modern and sophisticated touch to any baby shower.
You can use succulents as centerpieces or create a vine that serves as a table runner. Or opt for a more traditional use of greens and place green stems in vases (adding flowers is a plus).
Again, be creative and keep to your theme!
The most important thing to remember is to be creative and keep your mama-to-be in mind as you prepare for her big celebration. She’ll only have this party once so make sure the baby shower decorations are unique, personal, and 100% her!
