Winter \ Christmas Baby Shower Decorations

  • 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**
Christmas baby shower

  • 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.

Ideas For Baby Shower Favors & Prizes

  • Make holiday-shaped sugar cookies, frost them and place in a cellophane bag. Tie with a holiday bow and attach the recipe

  • Fill mini stockings with $5 Starbucks gift cards

  • Give holiday song CD's (either made by you or bought at the dollar store) If you make your own, you can put the baby shower details on the CD sleeve
