Baby shower diaper cakes are extremely popular! They make a striking centerpiece and are filled with tons of "new baby essentials" such as diapers, bib, socks, rattles, etc. The best thing about using diaper cakes for the centerpiece is that it can be given to the mom-to-be once the shower is over.

Whether you choose to make or buy your baby shower decorations, there are a bunch of handy ways to incorporate needed baby supplies into the centerpiece - and then give it to the mom-to-be as her baby shower gift! A great way to make your money go a long way!
This clever idea was submitted by one of our talented readers, Linda from Sterling Heights, MI. Here is what Linda had to say:
I have made a few of these diaper centerpieces for baby showers and they look great displayed on the gift table or as table centerpieces. (one mom to be used it as a game for guests to try to guess what the baby's name would be - the letters were scrambled on each table and the guest were divided into to teams to see who could spell out the baby's name within 1 min.)
Each letter contains 7 diapers and all of the diapers are wrapped with rubber bands to hold them firmly in place. The letters are bonded with a wooden dowel and hot glued to hold the letters in place, which are then inserted into the center of each diaper. Wrap the outside of the diapers with colored ribbon to match the theme of the shower.
This is a cute centerpiece that won't get thrown away, can be used by the mom for the new baby and can be coordinated with the theme! (tip: if you do not yet know the name of the baby - you can use the mother-to-be's name)
Place some blue glass pebbles in the bottom of a clear glass bowl (you can find these at your local craft shop.) Place a little rubber ducky on top. You can also use blue water marbles - also called Orbeez.
To make this simple diaper pea in a pod centerpiece, all I did was roll up 6 diapers and wrap them in green cellophane. I secured the cellophane with clear tape. Then I bought a 1/2 yard of green fleece and wrapped it around the diaper (pea) bundles and tied each end with ribbon. Simple to make and so cute! Perfect for twins, triplets, or more!
You can also use a green baby blanket instead of fleece - This is actually a smarter idea since the baby can use it - so the centerpiece doubles as a cute gift!
Below is a pea in a pod centerpiece picture I found on Google - It didn't have a website linked to it, so I wasn't able to give credit to the source (if you know who this pic belongs to, let me know and I'll add their info here.)
Roll up cute little baby washcloths and wrap a receiving blanket around them - tie each end with pretty ribbon. So adorable!
For this baby shower tables decoration, gather a bunch of cute balloons (mylar and latex) and tie together to make a bouquet. Attach a stuffed animal to the bottom to weigh them down. See this and more cute balloon baby shower decor here.

You can easily make baby blocks out of diapers and wrap pretty ribbon around them. They make the cutest centerpieces for a baby shower - and ... you can give the diapers to the mom-to-be after the baby shower!
Other ideas for using baby blocks are to lay abc blocks in the center of a square mirror, spell out cute baby words such as "Welcome Baby." For an added touch, sprinkle baby's breathe around the blocks or add some tea lights.
