Rubber Ducky Baby Shower Decorations
To decorate the room or hall, balloons are always a good idea, use blue and clear balloons to look like soap bubbles. Paper plates, cups and napkins in the duck theme would be lovely. This will help very much on your décor. Here are some party supplies you can use; rubber duck tableware or rubber ducky party kit.
Every party needs at least one of these; streamers, garlands, tissue poms poms or paper lanterns. This is an easy way to enhance the decorations for the party at a minimum cost. Some of these decorations can also be handmade if you have the time.

Rubber Ducky Baby Shower Ideas
On the buffet or candy table you can buy an inflatable duck tub and fill them with guest favors and add few mini rubber ducks for accent (like mother and her little babies). The tub then can be used by mommy afterwards.
The gift table can be also decorated with a baby bath with duck and/or bath theme presents: burp cloths, wash cloths clothes, baby items…
A wonderful centerpiece for a rubber ducky theme baby shower is a glass container filled with water (with a dash of blue food coloring) and have a rubber ducky floating or mini duck candles. Duck shaped soaps can be added on table and used party favor giveaways. Other favors can be bubble bath, bath salts or duck shaped candles.
Rubber Ducky Baby Shower Food
One food idea would be to use a punch bowl, but instead use blue Hawaiian punch with some 7-up or carbonated water. Instead of a punch bowl you can use a dispenser.

Here is a pretty 2-tier diaper cake which comes with Johnson & Johnson products, receiving blankets, sponge, washcloth, bottle brush… It’s about 13 inches high, so if you think it’s too small for your centerpiece table, you can always place it on a decorative box to elevate it (just take a plain box, or shoe box and wrap it with nice theme paper).
Rubber Ducky Baby Shower Games
An example of a game would be putting as many items as possible on a tray or even the baby’s bath tub, and show each guest the items for few seconds. Each guest will have a pen and paper, when the last guest looks at the item, the hostess says ‘start now’ then each guest writes down all the items they can remember. You can give them maybe a minute to write this items. The one that has the most listed items is the winner. Here are some items you can use:
