Baby Shower Decorations
La Di Da Baby Tips
Your location, theme and budget will help determine what type of decorations to
use. Want to go all out or just host a simple tea? You can purchase decorations,
hand make them or use a combination.
Wow the mom-to-be and the guests with a diaper cake centerpiece. This is a
beautiful way to create a focal point and provide a gift at the same time.
Order a decorated diaper cake from
La Di Da Baby, purchase an undecorated cake and
add your own special touch, or make one from scratch. Diaper cakes come in
all sizes and styles to match the budget and the theme of the party.
A single arrangement on the mantle, next to the sign-in area, on the food
serving table or as a centerpiece will enhance the decorations and location for
any shower theme. Is the baby shower theme flowers or the mom-to-be a flower
lover? Then go wild and use flowers everywhere. Tight budget? Cut flowers from
your garden or purchase some nice bouquets from your local Trader Joe’s or
Costco. If you have some wiggle room in the budget, then order centerpieces or a
show stopper from your local florist.
I first saw alphabet wall cards used for decoration at my baby shower.
Strategically placed on the outside steps of a curving staircase, the old
fashion ABC cards were used to spell out my baby’s name. I loved the affect
so much I used it for another shower, this time finding fairy and floral cards
that happened to match the shower colors and the baby’s nursery colors. I
spelled out the baby’s name over the mantle. The mom and dad loved it so much,
after the shower they framed the cards individually and hung them on their
baby’s nursery wall.

Note this works best for baby names that do not have duplicate letters – if they
do, you will have to borrow or buy an additional set to correctly spell the
It’s a baby shower, right? Incorporate a pretty umbrella into the décor and use
it either as a centerpiece or upside down in the gift opening area where the
mom-to-be can toss the gift ribbons and bows. The cascading ribbons over the
open umbrella will make a great picture.
Banners, yard signs, door signs and coordinating paper products are available
from your local party supply stores, general goods stores such as Target, and of
course, from several online retailers.
Scatter baby items throughout the location or use them as centerpieces. Use a
gift or your existing baby gear to help – a loaned pack and play was used at my
shower to hold the gifts and at the entrance door, a little red wagon holding
with a stuffed bear was used to great guests.
La Di Da Baby Tips:
Use decorations that also serve as useful take-home items for the mom-to-be. A
diaper cake and wall cards both make a fantastic decoration for the party and
serve a purpose at home. Diapers are always needed and the cake topper will be
one of the baby’s first toys. Wall cards may not be used in the nursery but will
still become a learning toy for the baby.
