Baby shower decorating ideas can range from simple to glamorous and everything in between. Decorations are an important part of your baby shower whether you decide to go for the simple or the elegant shower. Depending on your taste and budget shower decorating ideas can vary from one person to the next.
The easiest place to start is the theme. Decide on a theme for your shower to make things more organized and easy. The theme depends on the tastes of the happy parents-to-be. ‘Winnie the Pooh’, ‘pink’, ‘blue’ or a Christmas theme if it’s the Christmas season are a few traditional examples. The same theme used for previous children can be economical. However there are no specific rules. Therefore you can let your imagination run wild to your hearts content over the theme.
Balloons are always in. It’s cute and cost effective. A medium sized bunch of balloons can be bought for about $10. Helium balloons are available in various shapes at local stores. The helium balloons can be tied to the chair of the mom-to-be.
Another popular shower decorating idea is to hang disposable diapers on a string spelling ‘BABY SHOWER’ and stringing it across the room. The diapers can spell any other words such as ‘IT’S A GIRL’ or the baby’s name if you’ve already picked one.
Candles are an excellent shower decorating item if you are going for an elegant and classy look. You can also string Christmas lights and drape tulle over the lights to add to the glamorous look. Little baby booties, bibs, rattles and other baby items can be hung on the tulle for a cuter look.
Confetti is another excellent idea for shower decorations. They even come especially for baby showers with various baby shapes and in cartoon characters. Home made streamers and hand made banners add a personal touch to the shower decorations. Even the table cloth, napkins and napkin holders can be a part of the decoration if they are bought according to the theme.
Baby shower decorating ideas do not have to be traditional. You do not have to stick to any specific decorations. After all it is your baby shower. Use your imagination and creativity in coming up with ideas. Get together with your best friends or your family and brainstorm for baby shower decorating ideas. This can be very fruitful and will also make everyone feel more involved with your baby shower.
