Diaper cakes make perfect baby shower centerpieces - and you can give them to the mom-to-be as a gift at the end of the baby shower!

A great way to incorporate the diaper cake into the shower - and also a fun twist to the traditional baby shower memory game is to: add a few essential baby items to the diaper cake such as booties, lotion, baby shampoo, bottles, etc.

Tell everyone to take a look at the cute diaper cake - then take the cake out of the room and have the guests write down what was on the diaper cake. The person with the most right wins a baby shower prize!

Fun Duck-Themed Food Ideas

  • Serve crackers and cheese, only make up a little table sign saying "quackers and cheese" and set it next to the appetizers. If you want to get extra-creative, use a mini duck cookie cutter and cut the cheese into little ducks.

  • Often times when you go to the park, you bring bread to feed the ducks. With this idea in mind, take a large loaf of french bread and hollow it out, saving the insides. Fill the bread bowl with spinach dip (you can find the recipe on the package of Knorr vegetable dip). Place all of the bread pieces in a bowl and add a cute sign that says "Please Don't Feed The Ducks!"

  • Get some cute yellow and blue dishes, fill them with goldfish crackers and label them "Duck Food"

  • Make up some duck sugar cookies and frost them bright yellow. Serve them as a snack or wrap up and give as simple party favors.

  • Float mini rubber duckies (found at dollar stores) in the guests' water glasses - looks extra cute when served in wine glasses! (hint: prior to shower, rinse ducks off with water to get rid of any plastic taste.)

  • Make some blue finger jello, cut into squares, add a dab of whip cream and top with a mini rubber ducky.

  • Have mini rubber duckies swimming in a punch bowl filled with blue "Ducky Punch" - Get the recipe here
