Get several Mason Jars and fill them with battery powered fairy twinkle lights. Put them around the room - on the food table, gift table, in the restroom. The lights create such a warm and inviting feel!
Fill empty baby food jars with red hots or red jelly bellies and place battery operated tea lights on top of each one
Decorate a mini tree with baby goodies such as pacifiers, rattles, socks and teething rings and use as the table centerpiece. You can also do the same with a wreath and hang it on the front door. All of the baby items can be given to the expecting mom at the end of the shower.
**My daughter's birthday is in December so I bought her a pink tree this year to put her birthday presents under! I let her decorate it with pretty birthday ornaments (some she made and others we bought or had around the house) -
For a cute Christmas baby shower idea, purchase a colored tree to match the baby shower theme and decorate the tree with baby items or have each guest fill out a "Best Wishes - New Baby Advice" card and hang it on the tree! - Also be sure to include a "Baby's 1st Christmas" ornament**
Can you believe these cuties! These are adorable snowmen made from socks! You could even use baby socks to make mini snowmen! We found these guys over at one of my favorite crafty blogs The Purple Pug! These would make cute baby shower favors or you can use them as decorations for the baby shower and give to the mom-to-be at the end of the shower to use for the new baby!
Decorate in red, green, silver, or gold colors
Have some holiday music playing
Hang paper snowflakes from the ceiling and tape onto windows
Tie pretty ribbons and jingle bells around pillar candles
Paint old glass Christmas light with glue and dip into a bowl of glitter! Place into a large bowl or jar for a festive look!
Place poinsettia plants all around the room and outside on the porch add twinkle light to them. Also add to any indoor trees, plants, arrangements you have
Have candles lit throughout the room. A great tip is to buy several glass votive candle holders or use glass mason jars and place a tea lite in each one. Arrange on a mantle or counter top in a row. This makes such a warm and inviting atmosphere, especially if the baby shower is held during the evening.
Visit you local craft stores for holiday decor - they have great ideas and projects available to you
String cotton balls on clear string such as fishing line. Hang from the ceiling to create a snowy atmosphere. You can also string along the mantle or around the tables for snowball garland.
