Preparing and choosing the best baby shower decorations is similar to what you normally do when hosting another type of party or celebration. You must always start with an outline to make sure that every aspect of the event which requires decoration is indeed decorated. Generally speaking, all types of party decorations may also serve as baby shower decoration. They simply differ in terms of themes.

To help you get started, here is a list of essential baby shower décor that your party must have.

Baby Shower Banners, Balloons, and Streamers

These are usually hung on the wall, from the ceiling, and anywhere above people’s heads basically. Whereas centerpieces may differ from table to table, this type of baby shower decoration must be uniform as far as all guests are concerned. They are meant to add ambience to the party and – in the case of banners – to serve as a reminder for guests and the guest of honor herself as to why everyone’s gathered here in the first place.

As for the balloons, you can tape them to the walls, let helium-filled ones float to the ceiling, and tie the others to the backs of guests’ chairs. Make sure that the colors you have selected match the party’s theme. They may or may not have greetings for the mom-to-be printed on them.

Baby Shower Table Decorations

Centerpieces are often expected but they are not really required. If you are concerned about the added costs of having centerpieces, you can have them double as prizes and party favors later on. Other types of baby shower table decorations you have the option of including are listed below.

  • Plates
  • Drinking glasses
  • Cups and saucers
  • Forks, spoons, knives
  • Bowls
  • Paper or table napkins
  • Bibs (if you are serving perhaps steak or lobster)
  • Tablecloth and seat covers
  • Placemats
  • Seat assignment cards

Now that you know about the most essential baby shower decorations, the next thing to do is to coming up with a reasonable budget for purchasing them as well as choosing a theme in which they would revolve around. Remember as well that not all types of baby shower décor have to be purchased. If you are artistic, then perhaps you can work on some of them as DIY craft projects. Lastly, try your best to purchase all your décor and supplies from a single source. This will allow you to take advantage of discounts or even wholesale prices.
