Traditional centerpieces often include flowers of some sort. But you can add lots more interesting items to make it fun and joyful. The most important thing is that the decoration has to express love, joy and fun. If you don’t want to go with a typical baby shower centerpiece made up by flowers and small baby items there are many other items that can be included in a centerpiece.
Edible centerpieces are very popular for baby showers. Not only because they allow you to meet the pregnant woman’s cravings but the whole party will be able to enjoy an edible centerpiece. Cupcakes are very popular and a lovely cake stand filled with delightfully decorated cupcakes is a great choice. There are so many ways you can decorate your baby shower cupcakes and you can find lots of instructions on the internet. Lollipops are also an interesting choice for an edible centerpiece. You can add lollipops to any kind of centerpiece to add color and height.
Balloons are also a great choice and you can make a lovely centerpiece by adding some balloons. You can choose some in pastel colors depending on the gender of the coming baby. If you already know the gender and the name you can get balloons with writings on them.
A fun and useful centerpiece could easily be made by using baby items that the expecting mother can use when the baby has arrived. This way the centerpiece is not only used for decoration it also saves the new mom for having to buy certain items and saves her a lot of money as well. For example you can use a diaper pail as the base for the centerpiece. You can wrap it in decorative paper so it doesn’t show from outside. Diapers can be rolled up and you can tie a colorful ribbon around it. You can even fold little figures from diapers, without destroying them so they can be used for the baby’s arrival. From here you can add all kinds of baby stuff like pacifiers, bottles, clothes, rubber ducks, teddy bears and so on. This will create a lovely centerpiece that continues its purpose even after the end of the baby shower.
No matter which way you choose to go, it is important that the centerpiece stands out and is unique. That way the centerpiece will be remembered and the new mom will appreciate your efforts. A baby shower is a very special and memorable event so it is worth it to make an extra effort for letting the magic shine through.
