Musical Metal Cookie Container Centerpieces

We adore how Brittany from GreyGrey Designs created a custom-made baby shower centerpiece for her friend's Lullaby and Goodnight baby shower theme. (We also adore how easy they seem to be to put together!) She simply covered some metal cookie containers with scrapbook paper (bonus points if you use musically themed paper) and other embellishments and surrounded them with spray painted baby blocks to complete the look. The best part is that each centerpiece was unique and special. This centerpiece works for any musical-themed baby shower.

Pretty in Pink Pomander Centerpieces

While these pomanders can be made in any color depending on whether the baby shower is for a little boy or a little girl, we do love the way they look so delicate and pretty in pink. Paula from Frog Prince Paperie made these gorgeous ones with only a few supplies.

Diaper Cake Centerpieces

Why not use the centerpieces as an opportunity to create something fun and functional that the soon-to-be-mom can actually use after her baby shower? That's what Brittany over at GreyGrey Designs did with her adorable baby diaper centerpieces.

Diaper cakes are so easy to make! Watch this video to learn how to make one for your next friend's baby shower. You can buy these tan-colored (and fragrance- and chlorine-free) diapers at seventhgeneration.com.

Children's Book Themed Centerpieces

A book-themed baby shower is always a classic idea, and what's even better about that theme is that you can weave different books into centerpieces for each table. When Kristen Janes of Kio Kreations was creating her own shower, for example, she used "Peter Rabbit" as inspiration for one particular table, incorporating woodsy florals and vases with a stuffed Peter Rabbit and a print out of one of the pages of the book.

Building Our Family Blocks Centerpieces

We love the play on words (and ease of creation!) with this baby shower 'Building our Family Blocks' centerpiece idea. With or without the added teddy bears, the idea is adorable.

Hot Air Balloon Centerpieces

Motherhood will be the wildest ride of your life, and your baby shower centerpieces can certainly reflect that. We love the idea of a colorful balloon attached to a basket of beautiful flowers for a hot air balloon themed centerpiece. It's simple, sophisticated and fun ... plus it's super easy to put together!

Coffee Beans & Crepe Paper Flower Centerpieces

For a shower with a coffee theme, nothing's cuter than incorporating actual coffee beans into the centerpieces. Paula from Frog Prince Paperie did just that for her Coffee and Cravings Baby Shower, filling vases and tea lights with dark coffee beans and crepe paper flowers.

Colored Pencil Centerpieces

For a fun and colorful take on centerpiece décor, follow in the footsteps of Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy and hot glue some pretty colored pencils around a square glass vase for a pop of color on your baby shower tables. (Don't worry if you'd rather re-use the pencils again -- Lindsey was able to pop them right off the vase and peel the glue off easily, too.)

Mom-to-be Baby Photo Centerpieces

When it came time for Courtney from Pizzazzerie to celebrate the birth of her own baby, her mom helped her pull out all the stops to make it a party that everyone would remember. While there was a lot to love about Courtney's Pink, White & Roses themed shower, the detail that really puts it over the top is the way her mom used baby pictures of both the soon-to-be-mom and soon-to-be-dad to help decorate the tables.

Globe Centerpieces

This global-themed shower from The Pleated Poppy makes use of beautiful globes that were either already owned, borrowed or bought for centerpieces. While the theme was extra special for this particular shower -- the brand new baby was being adopted from Korea -- the idea of using different globes for d&eacute:cor works for world traveling parents or moms-to-be who are traveling for their showers, as well.
