Cheap And Fun Decor For Your Low-Budget Baby Shower

Throwing a baby shower is a fun occasion where you and all your closest friends can get together to celebrate a baby-to-be. When you are on a budget, you have to decide how much funding you can allocate to pay for decorations, food, and party favors. Here are some cheap and fun decor ideas to make your baby shower fun and engaging without blowing your budget entirely.

Balloon centerpieces

Choosing flower or candle centerpieces can be hard on your budget, but balloons are quirky, inexpensive, and charming as centerpieces. You can buy small balloons you can twist and shape at your local party supply store and turn them into colorful puppies, flowers, or even baby bottles. There are many tutorials you can use to create baby shower centerpieces that you can use for the table to make your space more festive and fun.

Party favor decor

Let party favors double as decor so you aren't buying both keepsakes and decorations for the baby shower. You can buy bubbles in the shape of bottles and tie them to balloons as weights for decorations, or create necklaces out of wrapped candies and a stapler. These necklaces can be draped over chairs and then worn by shower attendees as a fun and tasty keepsake. Even your balloon centerpieces can be given out as souvenirs or prizes as part of your festivities.

Decorate with food

Food can serve as decorative additions to your table if you don't have a large budget for additional decor. You can rent a cupcake stand from a local event center to create a cupcake tree that is as pretty to look at as it is tasty to eat, or you can make a colorful fruit platter that serves as a beautiful centerpiece for your main table. Pour punch in bright pink, blue, orange, or green hues (add a dollop or two of ice cream to give it a dreamy pastel appeal) into clear cups to add more color or match a theme for the party.

Throwing a baby shower is a fun experience, and it doesn't have to be super expensive. You can create beautiful and whimsical balloon centerpieces on a smaller budget, or you can create fun party favors that double as decor. You can even let food take center stage by being creative in your display at the refreshment table. No matter what your budget is, you can throw a memorable baby shower that has all the decor you need. Look at sites like to find the materials you need.
