Planning a Spring Baby Shower this year? We’ve got just the tips you need to stay on budget and keep it simple!
Backdrop & Table Decor
When it comes to decorating the tables for a baby shower, it can get a bit overwhelming. 8 tables, 40 chairs, place settings, centerpieces and party favors are a lot to decorate individually, so here’s an idea: Focus on decorating ONE table. Take one 10×10 table, decorate it, display the food so that every plate is at a different height, create a cute backdrop and VIOLA! The main table (food, of course) is the center of attention!
Centerpiece & Place Setting
Bow Tie DIY Napkins // Rain Boot Centerpiece
After you’ve made one table the main attraction, feel free to add little decorative goodies to the individual place settings. For the centerpiece, flowers inside of a rain boots are adorable and cheap! Search your local thrift store or children’s consignment for used rainboots, this way you’ll have a variety of styles! Rolling your plasticware into napkins and adding a cute bow/ bowtie is also an easy way to add some finishing touches to the place setting!
Gifting the Mommy-To-Be
At this point in time, every mommy-to-be out there has created a Baby Registry. Many guests like to buy the mommy something off of her registry; whether it be diapers, wipes, or bath products. But who’s to say that mom doesn’t want to enjoy a gift for herself after the baby comes?
So here it goes : Mom, add something YOU want for yourself to your Baby Registry!
