Planning a baby shower for your sister, aunt, roommate, or best friend? It’s such an exciting time, and you want to show your support by hosting a baby shower to remember. Of course, the most important thing is probably a comfortable seat for the mom-to-be (and a place to put her feet up), but after that, there are so many beautiful and fun party decoration possibilities. We’ve found 15 of the best baby shower décor ideas to get you started on your plans

Keep it Simple with Greenery.

White with a hint of powder blue or pink (depending on the baby’s gender) sets a beautifully simple and fresh stage for a successful baby shower. To freshen things up, consider incorporating a couple of greenery swags or garlands, either on the wall or table. The effect is breathtaking and magical…which is appropriate in celebrating the arrival of a breathtakingly magical little soul.{found on bestfriendsforfrosting and stylemepretty}.

Pop it Up!

Let’s be honest. Most moms-to-be are feeling ready to pop by the time baby showers roll around, whether they actually are (or even look it) or not. A cute play on this concept is to theme the baby shower around the “pop” bit. A bright and bubbly color scheme, simple but graphic stripes, and soda and popcorn bar is not only simple to plan for, but it also lays the stage for a baby shower that’s sure to be festive and fun to attend!{found on prettyprovidence}.

Throw a Fresh Flower Shower.

Baby shower or not, this idea is an absolute stunner. If you have access to lots of pretty fresh flowers (or if your mom-to-be loves flowers the most and would appreciate this in an I’ve-died-and-gone-to-heaven sort of way), let these flowers be the star in your decoration. A hanging flower garland from a suspended branch sets a beautiful backdrop for an equally fresh and stunning foliage-focused table.{found on karaspartyideas}.

Think Outside the Box.

Just because most baby shower décor involves, frankly, some obvious décor options, that doesn’t mean that your baby shower need follow suit if you want something bold and different. This southwestern/Aztec-inspired baby shower is positively refreshing because of its uniqueness. Arrow-shot cupcakes, graphic triangle paper garlands, arrow shapes repeated throughout; the entire thing is beautifully carried out.{found on karaspartyideas}.

Recycle Mason Jars for Vases.

Mason jars are just so universally versatile (is that a thing?) that we have to include them as one of our top baby shower décor ideas. Paint and then lightly sand the mason jar to give it a charming cottage look, then load up with flowers. Pink for girls, blue/white for boys, or yellow for a gender-neutral baby shower.

Take Inspiration from Your Surroundings.

Live in the desert? No problem! Your baby shower can still look as fresh and bold as ever when you stay true to your circumstances and run with it. Keep classic silhouettes (such as the saguaro cactus) minimal yet bold, and choose a primary color with perhaps a few variations for geometric paper garlands. This desert-themed baby shower setup is enchanting.{found on handmademood}.

Use (Clean) Toys as Shower Décor.

There are classic toys out there that are every bit as aesthetic as they are fun to play with. A red radio flyer mini wagon is one of them. Use these in your baby shower decoration to lend a classic, nostalgic, retro, vintage, and utterly unique kid-licious vibe.

Make it a Shower!

This is a fun literal interpretation of the concept of “shower” in baby shower. White balloon cloud clusters at the top of a window and colorful tissue paper raindrop-shaped garlands streaming down from the cloud makes this sweet, colorful, and fun. It’s easy to customize for the rest of the baby shower décor, as well, with the colors of raindrops you choose: blue, pink, rainbow, ombre, lots of possibilities. {found on em-il-ie}.

Get Two Birds with One Stone with Practical Décor.

Most moms-to-be appreciate any kind of support and celebration that a baby shower provides; many would be over the moon about being able to take home practical decorations, like these diaper-base tissue pom flowers. These could easily be varied in height and dotted around the entire baby shower room or the center table or surrounding the guest of honor’s chair…wherever! They are large, bright, and above all useful when all’s said and done.

Decorate the Diapers.

Following up on practical décor…the new baby is going to need lots of diapers. And then lots more. The mom-to-be is probably going to want diapers the very most, so you may as well make them look cute! Roll the diapers and create a charming three-tiered “cake,” held together with ribbons and bows. This could be customized for boys or girls or changed up according to the theme of the party.{found on etsy}.

Create a Gorgeous Ceiling Centerpiece.

Chances are, the refreshments or gathering table is going to be bursting with tasty morsels, game components, or baby shower decor already, so balancing the rest of the spacewith decoration can be challenging at a baby shower. That’s why creating a fantastic suspended centerpiece like this one, with tissue pom-poms and paper lanterns, is such a good idea. Its large size makes it feel instantly like a party.

Use up Your Washi Tape for Bowtie Napkins.

Sometimes, baby shower ideas for girls seem pretty easy, while baby boys can be a little more challenging. I think this idea evens the score substantially. With just a little wrap of washi tape, you can create an adorable bowtie “decoration” on the refreshments table.

Create Baby “Blocks”.

Brown craft paper used to wrap up large cardboard boxes is the main concept behind this adorable B-A-B-Y block tower. Use white cardstock or stencil and paint to create the letters you want on the blocks themselves. You could also spell out the baby’s name, if it’s known. I think that adding a bit of color (via balloons, crepe paper, or something similar) would make this particularly cute.{found on style-blueprint}.

Make it About the Food (kind of).

We all know that most gatherings depend on food to make it feel like a success. As the host of a baby shower, you can accept this concept and run with it; just focus the food on the celebratory content of new baby! This sweet fruit baby buggy is not only adorable and funny, it’s also healthy and fresh, which will likely be appreciated by all shower attendees.{found on theproducemom}.


The most important part of a baby shower, of course, is celebrating with the mother-to-be. She has quite an adventure ahead of her, and it’s the love and support of her family and friends that will help her through the challenges. Kickstart that support with a baby shower that brings together those people who mean the most to her.{found on worldmarket}.
