  • Bake a batch of feet shaped sugar cookies! You can find cookie cutters at your local craft store or online. Wrap them up in cellophane and tie with a snazzy bow - add a favor tag and hand out as favors and prizes. You can also put them on a cute platter and serve them as snack at the shower. Everybody loves cookies!

  • Purchase mini pedicure kits or assemble spa items such as:
    *nail polish
    *hand cream
    *foot cream
    *feet-shaped bath beads
    *pumice scrub
    *a nail file

    Package them up in cute containers and give away as baby shower favors or prizes. Attach a cute note or favor tags saying "From Our Shower to Yours!" 

    Popular Idea: bundle all of the mani-pedi items in a mason jar and add a tag saying "Pedicure in a Jar" or "Nailed It" (click to see example)

Baby Shower Footprint Decorations and Supplies


  • If you have access to a real baby's hands and feet,  stamp them onto white paper using pink and blue stamp pads or non-toxic paint and use as a tablecloth or wrapping paper.

  • Buy some "baby feet and hands" scrapbook paper from your craft store and use it for all kinds of clever decorating ideas!

  • Cut out strips of scrapbook paper and wrap around a glass cylinder vase. Fill the vase with flowers or a pillar candle

  • Use the paper for place mats (even laminate it if you wish)

  • Cut out strips of the paper and wrap around bottled water to make cute labels!

  • Cut out strips and use as napkin rings

  • Using tag board or construction paper, cut out feet and hand shapes (you can trace a small child's) and hang them from the ceiling using thread or fishing wire. Add glitter to jazz them up!

Baby Shower Menu

  • Cut out sandwiches into feet-shapes using a cookie cutter. Chicken salad, tuna fish, and turkey are popular sandwiches to serve at baby showers
  • Place a cute sign by all of the baby shower snack saying "Finger Foods"
