This might just be one of the most clever train themed boy baby shower food displays I’ve ever seen. Imagine a town created of food with a train of mini hot dogs chugging through via a toy train track & bridge display!

The hot dog display winds past “Blueberry Bay”, a “Salad Farm”, “Cheeseville” and “Cracker Creek”, with stops at “Nut Bush City Limits” and “Burger Mountain” before the train terminates at “Cupcake Castle”—a scrumptious display of red velvet cupcakes, topped with edible icing images of the parents-to-be.

The raindrops make for a fun visual display and were cut from cardstock and sewn together prior to hanging from the edges of the umbrellas. Cloud and raindrop paper was used to create an adorable “Baby Boy” bunting, hung from twine and clothespins.

23. From Partylicious – Don’t underestimate the effects of lighting as a baby shower décor element. They can create a mood and transform a space almost effortlessly.

book-themed-baby-shower

24. From Your Home Based Mom – Add “wow” to your baby shower decorations by carrying your theme throughout the party. This children’s book theme used favorite titles to inspire the menu. Plus, pages of beloved books were used to create colorful bunting hung for the party. Clever!

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. Furniture can really inspire the feel of the event and is an important décor element. Remember to use a variety of pedestals, boxes and drawers to add charming style. This stunning gender neutral baby shower is a perfect example of how furniture can create a mood.

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. Not only is it a budget-friendly alternative to costly fabric options, it makes cleanup a cinch as you can just throw it away when the baby shower is over.

29. From Sugarplum Sweets – If you’re trying to come up with decoration ideas, here’s a tip: 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. Raid your craft supplies, and look for stamps, paper punches, craft paper and any supplies that you could use to create your own embellishments as seen in this adorable little peanut elephant baby shower.

30. From Smart Party Planning – When decorating for a baby shower, try choosing décor items that can do double duty to save effort and expense. In this blue and yellow teddy bear baby shower, the cute banner actually functions as one of the party activities.  The cards in the banner were actually “wishes for baby” and “baby prediction cards” that guests were encouraged to fill out during the party. Another example of décor doing double duty is the sweet teddy bear, which actually functioned as the guest book.  Attendees could sign it as a special keepsake.
