Every good baby shower needs something to munch on, am I right? When it comes to decorating the main table you can take advantage of the different kinds of food you are going to share.

In this amazing picture we can see that just by using some glass vases with wide openings and filling them with colored candy you are well on your way to the perfect baby shower table.

Decorated Hershey’s baby shower bars

I absolutely LOVE this idea! (I also love chocolate 😉 )

Hershey’s bars, apart from being delicious, have a very nice hidden quality; they make awesome baby shower treats. You can color the words HE or SHE on the wrapper to welcome the baby boy or girl to the world.

Just get some permanent markers and fill away.

Balloon flowers that you can create

Decorating the table doesn’t mean to JUST decorate the table; you should, of course, decorate the whole baby shower table area.

These very simple balloon flowers are perfect for doing just that.

Just tie five balloons forming the petals with some string and add one more to the center; it’s that simple. You can set them on the wall or attach them to a long sick to make the stem.

Baby Shower banners for types of themes

To decorate the table you can always use a banner and hang it on top of or around the main table.

I’ve created a selection of 15 baby shower banners you can check out. Hey! this just might help you choose a theme for the baby shower 🙂

Stupid adorable Oreo pops

Similar to the marshmallow pops, these Oreo pops are covered in chocolate and decorated with different toppings. Perfect for any baby shower, you can vary the decoration to fit your own baby shower event.

For better results you might want to use mega stuffed Oreos and stick a lollipop stick right in the filling. Remember to coat the oreos with white chocolate or your favorite color, decorate each pop and let it sit on some wax paper to dry.

Once solid you can use some plastic treat bags and some ribbon to pack each one. Lay them on the table or make a beautiful pop bouquet.
