Ideas for Baby Shower Centerpieces

Baby Shower Centerpieces are fun and easy to make and/or select! When you are selecting your baby shower centerpiece, you should consider what your budget is, how to tie it in with the theme, and the mood of the baby shower. For Instance, if you went way out to have an elegant baby shower, you would not want to have baby shoe mint cups, (which are made of paper plates), for your baby shower centerpiece. However, if you are on a budget, those mint cups would be perfect and could easily be decorated or manipulated to match your theme. You should also consider where the centerpiece will be located in your planning. If you are placing it on the gift table, you would want something that really stands out but if are simply looking for centerpiece ideas for each guest table, you would want something cute and small.
