The celebration of the expecting new bundle of joy is something that everyone is happy to celebrate. The baby shower event is celebrated by different religions and regions before the arrival of the new baby.
The preparation of this party is fun, well most of the time… There are different centerpieces that can be used while decorating the tables for the guests. With diy baby shower centerpieces, which you can make at home, you can give a unique and special look to this amazing event. Below centerpiece is the simplest you can make; Buy some Mason jars, add a bit of paint inside the jar, swirl the paint around to cover it completely, flip it over to let it dry. Embellish it with ribbon and other decors, add some fresh cut flowers and you have a pretty and cheap centerpiece. You can add a round or square mirror or add some mini candles around it to give more of a complete look.
Homemade Baby Shower Centerpieces
At specialty stores there are a numerous beautiful ready made baby shower centerpieces available. However, if you are interested in creating the homemade baby shower centerpieces then there are also different unique ideas that can be used for this purpose.
Creating the homemade baby shower centerpieces shows your personal skills, creativity, and dedication for hosting this shower. One of the basic things that you need to decide while creating the centerpieces is the baby shower theme.
Marquee letters are my favorite. You can spell out the word BABY, baby’s name or just the first letter. Great addition to nursery also.
It is necessary that while creating the homemade baby shower centerpieces the gender of the new baby should be kept in mind, again the theme of the baby shower should have the appropriate colors if it’s a boy, girl or neutral (if one does not know the gender or does not want the traditional pink/blue). This will help you create a centerpiece based those colors.
These sticks can be used as centerpieces with anything you can imagine. In a vase with flowers or candy, or add it to a mini baby shower diaper cake to add on each guest table.
Baby Shower Flower Arrangements Centerpieces
Using the combination of different flower arrangement is a classic yet elegant idea. This is also easiest for you to create. If you are using fresh flowers, you can use the green foam to stick or pin the flowers in it. To keep the flowers fresh you need to soak the foam piece into the water. You can buy them almost anywhere, they come in different shapes and sizes, but I usually take the one in a block as you can cut to whatever size you want.
Another simple arrangement is a clear tall vase with water, add few drop of red or blue to make light pink or light blue and add a floating votive candles. You also add few flowers to give it an extra lovely affect. Another alternative is vase with water pearls plus underwater LED Lights. Place it on circular or square mirror and add some mints for the guests to have later on.
