Centerpieces are taking on all sorts of shapes these days. You no longer have to stick to the traditional flower arrangement centerpieces. You can jazz it up and give your guests a little something to remember at your next shower. Read on for some creative, easy baby shower centerpieces.
For some quick and easy centerpieces that do double duty try a couple of these suggestions. Some very easy centerpieces are simple bowls of candy. You can get after-dinner mints in almost any color and can coordinate them with your party color scheme. Just place them in some pretty bowls and set in the middle of your tables. You can also get M&M’s in custom colors and do the same idea.
Another easy one is to have pretty trays of cookies and cupcakes at the center of your tables. You can use tiered trays and alternate with cookies, mini cupcakes or muffins, and even chocolate covered strawberries.
Something else you could do would be to tie ribbon around bundle of baby supplies. Then, when the shower is over you can give the bundles to the mother-to-be. This way you have cute and creative centerpieces that also double as a gift for your guest of honor.
If your favors are in attractive boxes, or cellophane bags with ribbons you can use them for your centerpieces. Stack the boxes in fun little pyramids, or put the bags in a basket and then place them at the center of your table. After the party you can ask each of the guests to take one and then part of your clean up is done for you.
You can also use the classy centerpiece of floating candles. Get a shallow dish, fill it with water and place two to three floating candles. This is a very attractive center piece that you can use over and over for different events.
The options are really endless, let it fit your personality. Be creative and try out new ideas! If you would like more ideas on how to plan the perfect baby shower, visit http://www.we-review-for-you.com/rbabyshower.html
