21. From Sugar Coated Mama – Here’s a simple and inexpensive backdrop idea that adds a lot to the décor: fringed crepe paper. Buy the crepe paper in sheets, cut them in strips and then cut through several layers at once. You’ll be hanging decorations in no time.


22. From Charming Touch Parties – Spell out a name or greeting with marquee style letters. I love, love the fabric, dimensional paint and button details at this gender neutral baby shower.


23. From Partylicious – Almost everyone has twinkle lights in their Christmas stash. Hang them vertically from a rod and let them shine through an arrangement of sheer curtains—automatic atmosphere with a touch of glam.


24. From Your Home Based Mom – Add “wow” by carrying your theme throughout the party. This children’s book theme used favorite titles to inspire the menu. Clever!


25. From Sans Soucis Events – It’s the details that make a party. Faux grass place mats and a few flowers transport guests to the great outdoors, no matter the weather.


26. From Anders Ruff Custom Designs – Use an unexpected piece of furniture—in this case, a vintage desk—for a dessert table or beverage display. Remember to use a variety of pedestals, boxes and drawers to add charming style.


27. From A Delicate Gift – Don’t have matching linens for the tables? No problem! Make an inexpensive table runner with wrapping paper that comes in many colors and patterns.


28. From Spaceships and Laser Beams – Think you don’t have what it takes to decorate for a baby shower? Repetition of color and form always makes a statement—even with something as simple as soup cans full of flowers! The contemporary mom-to-be will appreciate the pop/art vibe.


29. From Sugarplum Sweets – Choose a meaningful idea and repeat it every way you can. Here, the partnering of the “little peanut” and elephant motif was effective on food medallions, dessert cups, favor bags and décor.


30. From Smart Party Planning – Choose items that can do double-duty. Here, the cute banner actually functions as one of the party activities and the sweet teddy bear is the stand-in for a guest book.
