Okay, My best friend who is also pregnant is having her baby shower next weekend and I am in charge of decorations. I have help putting them up of course but dont know where to start with the buying as I have never done it before on my own. I know I want to get one of those small disposable helium tanks for balloons and streamers and cute signs or pictures of babies but is that it really? It seems to simple... Is there something I am missing, I want it to be good for her as this is her 2nd and last....(tubes gettin tied)

I make a three tier cake out of disposable diapers as the table centerpiece. I use ribbon and other items to decorate the cake. It looks like a three tier wedding cake with each tier round but smaller than the one underneath it. It really looks cute. You just wrap the diapers around each other until they are the tier size you want. It usually take a package to a package and half of #1 diapers.

What about flowers? Some fresh yellow and pink tulips at a shower can be so pretty and spring-like and reminiscent of birth! If you're in charge of food, too, I love the look of big clear gla__s pitchers of fruit punch with lots of ice and fresh fruit. And maybe little umbrellas for the drinks?

Well, If you are having tables you have to decide what color table cloths you want (perhaps alternating colors). Then you can dress it up by twisting crepe paper streamers in different colors down the middle of the table. Also, little candy dishes for the table. Get creative! for candy dishes at my bridal shower we painted little flower pots white, glued ribbon around the top and glued a little flower bud on each one, all in spring colors. If your doing games where people can win gifts you can use those as decorations too. Another example of something we did was went to the dollar store and got a whole bunch of painted gla__s vases and put them on the tables with a few flowers in each one and when someone one a game or a name drawing then they could pick one they liked. If you have tables, they will kind of be the center of the room so you want to dress them up real nice! Other than that, like you said, balloons and streamers and cute signs or pictures of babies will look great. Also, decorate the gift table and a box for cards. There are so many little touches that can make it nicer and more colorful, for example wrapping the silverware in colored napkins, tying them with ribbon, and setting them up in a pretty basket. Good luck, hope I've helped!

As well as the diaper cake for the center peices, put baby bottles filled with candy at each end of long tables. Then the mother to be gets to take them home with her. Go baby stuff crazy! My sister who thinks she knows everything and thinks she has more style then me, cause she spends twice the amount on her jeans as I do, threw me a mexican themed baby shower! It would have been great if I were of Mexican decent or lived in Mexico, but I am far from it. What happened to baby shoes and little ducks? if she every gets married and has a baby, you better belive I will be using lots of cutesy little baby stuff! sorry had to vent, but I guess my point is, remember who you are throwing your party for and decorate accordingly......

Well I was just talking to her about it and she informed me that her mom doesnt wanna bother with wall decorations or streamers so Its all paper goods and table decoration, there is only one dining room table so this'll be easier than i thought) still fun though....

My friend wants to keep it simple so I will just make her the cutest diaper cake I can with some other table things and some balloons i guess, I will prob get some flowers for her too though... Im so glad I asked her though!!!! I didnt know the cake was included in the decorations I was supposed to get either....
