Whether you’re on a budget and are in need of some great DIYs, or want to indulge in made-to-order custom centrepieces, there’s no limit to how you decorate for the special day. Let your creative side run free, the end result will be as rewarding as it is show-stopping.
A staple for celebration, balloons are a must for baby showers. We suggest against having loose balloons rolling around on the floor as they will undoubtedly pose a health and safety risk, and that’s definitely not what you want. Instead, consider using helium balloons that float on weighted ribbons. Or if you want to add a really personal touch, invest in lettered helium balloons to spell out a special message to surprise the mum-to-be. Frame the entrance of your venue with an arch of balloons for a warm welcome that will ensure all of your guests know that they’re in the right place.
Easy to put together and with so many different styles, bunting is a foolproof way to fill empty spaces. Get crafty and make bunting match your colour theme, or spell out a message to hang above the table or along any flat surfaces. Bunting doesn’t have to be flat either. Make a 3D pom-pom bunting for a colourful wool garland that will brighten up any room.
Never underestimate the power of a tablecloth to transform the atmosphere in a room. A textured tablecloth draped over the front of a table can create a beautiful station for guests to gather around. Lay a runner down the centre of the table for an easy two-toned look that’s simple but effective.
If you have the budget and want to project a special message to the mum-to-be, personalised banners will always provide a wow factor to impress your guests. We recommend hanging above your centre table for maximum impact. And your banner doesn’t have to be made professionally either. Handmade pieces work just as well and can provide an excellent talking point.
Nothing sets the mood like the right lighting, so make sure to select a few key lighting pieces to brighten up the occasion. Tealight and votive candles placed in jars are beautifully simple but can be just the elegant addition you’re looking to dress your baby shower with. If you’re looking for a fuss-free way to light up the shower, consider LED candles to eliminate any concerns without compromising the radiance of candlelight.
The birth of a baby is a beautiful celebration of life, so why not add a touch of nature to commemorate the event. Flora centrepieces are a sweet addition to have, and you can even match the colours of the blooms to your theme for a wonderfully put together style. If you know the name that the parents have chosen for their soon-to-be newborn, spelling out the baby’s name in letter-shaped flower arrangements will be sure to show them how much they are already loved.
