When it comes to baby shower decorations, the possibilities really are endless. From the ready-made pink or blue baby shower decorations to balloon bouquets to crafty centerpieces and games, making the most of the decorating is an excellent way to thank your guests for their support and get excited about your bundle of joy! Here are some of our favorite baby shower ideas for decorations:

 

The Interactive Baby Shower Decoration

If you have creative friends, alphabet painting is a super fun way to have them take part in decorating the nursery. All you need is the 26 letters of the alphabet (wooden or cardstock) and each guest can paint a letter to be hung up on the wall. All the people that mean so much to you will have a hand in decorating the nursery!

Baby Bib Decorating

You’re going to go through a lot of bibs, why not have plenty of unique, hand-decorated ones? All you need is fabric paint and plain bibs and your guests can paint a personal bib gift for your baby. So cute!

Baby Babble Scramble

Scramble common baby-related words and print them on paper that matches the theme. Have guests unscramble the words to reveal the answers, and whoever unscrambles them first wins a prize.

What Size is Mommy’s Tummy?

This game is super simple and always gets people smiling. All you need is some ribbon or yarn. Have guests cut the ribbon to the length they think wraps around mommy’s tummy perfectly. Whoever gets the size right gets a prize.

 

Advice Cards

Create themed advice cards for your guests to give their personal piece of baby advice. This game is fun and can be a neat way for guests to give insight. The more input the better!

 

Baby Shower Favors

Let your guests know how thankful you are for their support (and gifts) with themed baby shower favors. Some of our favorite baby shower favor ideas include:

 

  • Gift bags – fill with confetti, candy and hand-made thank you notes
  • Soap – wrap bars of soap with thank you notes as a cute thanks for attending the “shower”.
  • Succulents – remind people of the precious gift of life with a succulent!

 

Baby Shower Themes

Whether you want to keep the classic baby blue theme or opt for something outrageous (zombie baby shower, anyone?) choosing your baby shower theme can help you zero in on decorations and make this baby shower extra special.

 

Baby Shower Themes For Girls

Throw a baby girl garden party! This is a delightful way to expand from an all-pink baby shower. Make paper flowers, serve tea cakes and tea sandwiches and give away flowers or succulents as party favors!

Baby Shower Themes For Boys

Sports themed baby showers for boys are always fun and the best part is that you can buy plenty of ready-made decorations. Whether you want to do a football theme, baseball theme, basketball theme or all-sports-in-one, a sports baby shower lends itself to tons of games. Plus, it’s a great theme for a co-ed baby shower.

 

Gender Neutral Color Theme

If you want to keep the gender reveal for delivery day, have some fun with a gender neutral color theme!

Yellow and green are popular baby colors, or you can select the whole rainbow in pastels. Play gender reveal guessing games or ask for gender neutral name suggestions.

No matter what theme, decorations or party favors you choose, your baby shower is going to be a day you remember for years to come.

We’ll help you make it extra special. Come on down to  Paper Plus at 1629 San Pablo Ave in Berkeley to get everything you need!

We’re open Monday – Saturday 9am – 7pm and Sunday 10am – 5pm.

Congratulations!
