Baby shower gift ideas, prizes & Centerpieces


So my baby shower is next weekend, my mom is planning it. I am a litle nerveous because my mom wants to "create" the center pieces for the tables, but my mom is not a crafter and neither am I. I was wondering if any of you would be willing to either message me with pics on certerpiece ideas. Also ideas of door prizes or gifts for games. I didn't really want a theme so we are just decorating with baby and blue because it's a boy. Any help and ideas is so appreciated! Thank you!

  • you can do a "diaper cake". all you do is buy several different sizes, a case of each. roll and tie with ribbon. make is a tier or so it steps up as you go to the top. you can get little rattels, teethers and decorations to tie on it as well. for door prizes and game prizes...i would get gift cars of Bath and Body works, gas cards, or grocery cards. stationary is also popular and well liked. good luck and congrats!

  • door prizes are easy.. just get some bags, and fill them with some bath stuff and candles.. they are cheap, and nice, and most people love them.

    for the games: I had two baby showers and we played:

    Count the m & m's in the baby bottle for one.
    and count the objects in the baby bottle piggy bank for another (I got to keep the baby items in the bottle)
    For one we did "dirty diaper".. pass out make shift diapers with candies in them.. the one with the "dirty diaper" (or the one with chocolate in it) wins
    The other we did the bingo game.. you have guest fill in the blanks with what they think you are getting (or you can get them pre made at some stores).. first with a bingo wins
    One we had a waist guessing game.. buy a large roll of string, and have people cut it to the length they think it will have to be to wrap around your belly.. person that gets it dead on or near enough wins.
    letter scramble was another we had too.
    cont.
