When we get through with you – guests will be so impressed with your party planning skills, they will beg you to plan their next big bash!
A clever tip is to incorporate newborn baby supplies into your decorating! By using baby bottles, pacifiers, receiving blankets, rattles, etc you can then give these items to the mom-to-be to use when the baby arrives.

Baby Sock Rose Bouquets
Lay these delicate flowers on counter tops or arrange in cute vases and use for them centerpieces.
At the end of the baby shower, hand the bouquet to the new mom for a great start to her baby’s sock collection!
Using one sock at a time, roll the sock from toe to top cuff.
Fold the cuff around one half of the rolled sock to form a petal.
Place a pipe cleaner into the bottom of the flower and wrap tightly with floral tape to hold in place (you will have to place the floral tape on the bottom of the sock and wrap around until it holds he pipe cleaner in place.)
Repeat with each sock.
Tie the bouquet together with the cute ribbon.
Lay on tables throughout the room or place in pretty vases.
At the end of the shower you can hand them out as favors, or give to the mom-to-be for her baby sock collection!
- Cute Idea: To make tulips instead of roses (as pictured above in the bouquet,) fold one sock halfway inside out – kind of like the way you fold socks when doing laundry (but only using one sock instead of two) – then add pipe cleaner and wrap in floral tape like you do for the roses.
- Another cute idea for making baby shower crafts is to make a sock rose corsage by following the same steps except cut the pipe cleaner to make a small stem. Pin on guests as they arrive, or reserve them for the mom-to-be, grandma or an aunt. If it’s a couples shower or a baby shower where men will be attending, they can be used as boutonnières!
- Have fresh flowers in vases around the room and on each table
- Go to your local craft store and purchase a large cardboard letter (either the first letter of baby’s name or just the letter B if the baby’s name is unknown) – buy several small artificial flower buds and hot glue each one onto the letter. Below is an example of how awesome this can look. You don’t need to go this big, small letters would look just as cute! – You can also use fresh flowers if you are brave enough.

Baby Shower Decor
This is such a simple baby shower decor idea! When I first saw these on Etsy, they were shown using family photos that were Mod Podge’d onto wooden plaques and several were hung on a wall.
I thought this idea was genius! It gives an alternative for displaying photos on your wall, other than the traditional picture frame.
While cruising through the craft store, the thought of using scrapbook paper cut into shapes on the plaques came to me.
I scooped up all of the supplies and gave this project a whirl! It turned out to be super affordable (one completed plaque cost me about $3) and didn’t take much time at all!
These were so simple to make! Perfect for dressing up a baby shower food table or hanging on the wall at the shower.
You can also give the plaque to the mom-to-be at the end of the baby shower for her to hang in the baby’s nursery.
I decided to make 2 plaques. One for a boy and one for a girl.
The boy plaque is dark blue with a onesie and the girl plaque is brown with a pink polka dot rattle.
The plaques are approx. 8 1/2 x 10″
Start by painting or spray painting the plaque and letting dry.
I chose to use acrylic paint with a foam brush. It was easy but probably would have taken half the time if I had spray painted.
To give the plaque a rustic look, you can rough up the edges a bit with sand paper or a nail file.
Easy and quick but really adds to the plaques uniqueness.
I whipped up a quick onesie template on the computer and printed it onto patterned scrap book paper.
You can print the onesie template out for free here.
Glue the paper to the plaque using Mod Podge. Make sure it is nice and flat against the wood.
Then paint the entire front of the plaque and let dry. The glue will dry clear.

- Hang a clothesline (heavy yarn or string) across the room and put clothespins on it, and every time the mom-to-be opens a cute outfit, socks, bibs or a blanket, hang it up on the clothesline, so you can all see it. Very cute!
- Get some fabric squares and have each guest decorate one with permanent marker (and write their name on it, too), then have a crafty person sew them all together and make a baby quilt out of them!
