For an extra personal touch, liven up the baby shower entrance table by creating a 3-D tulle letter to represent baby’s name if known, that can later become a nursery gift. The letter can be made using paper mache and a spool of tulle wrapped around the letter.

Sweet & Tickled Pink Baby Shower

Keep all the baby shower decorations in the same color tone and make it all matching. A dessert table can look fantastic, with ribbon topiaries, balloons, and a banner. Tissue pompoms, honeycomb, tissue tassel garlands, and streamers can offset the overall dessert bar design to match the color theme perfectly. The desserts can also become part of the decor by matching frostings to the color theme and making printable candy wraps for a special touch.
