Cute as a button

  • Hide buttons for guests to randomly find and exchange for prizes or raffle tickets.
  • Sew buttons to pennant banners or the corners of linen napkins.
  • String buttons onto jewelry wire to make a birth necklace for mom-to-be. 

Directions: ask each guest to bring a button or bead to the baby shower. Create a necklace that mommy gets to wear when her labor begins. The beads and buttons around her neck will be symbolic of  hugs and support from her friends.

5 easy centerpiece ideas for a baby shower

Balloons, cakes, diaper cakes, cupcakes, gift baskets, are by far the easiest items to decorate a room or a table. Just because they’re easy ideas, doesn’t mean they can’t be impressive. Other than balloons, all these centerpieces will serve a dual purpose as well!


  • Make your own custom balloon bouquets with refillable tanks you can purchase.  We found them at several local party stores, Target, and Walmart online. At about $20.00-25.00 bucks, we think they’re a great deal!  They’re very easy to use and the helium goes a long way and could be used for more than one party (if you’re conservative with your balloon decorating)…either way we had blase with our kit.  It was the perfect fit for our baby/family shower we recently hosted!  

Easy Baby Shower Ideas with- Flower Balloons

You will need 6 latex balloons (per flower) filled with helium and tied with string. Bundle balloons together, pull the center balloon a full length above the other balloons. With balloons in the proper position- tie the bundle together with a single knot.
