I love the simplicity of pairing white tablecloths with burlap. They create a neutral look, so any color goes great with them. The baby blue gets all the attention in this picture, and the different textures of the glass, burlap and cotton are a great way to add interest to the decor.

Mason jars are so easy to find and decorate so this fabulous centerpiece doesn’t have to be overwhelming to create.

2. Teddy Bears

All things vintage come together in this super chic baby shower. Even if you don’t have all the props to recreate this fun idea, there are many affordable elements you can pick to include at your event.

I love buying wooden crates at Hobby Lobby, Marshall’s or Target. You can buy vintage marquee letters from various places, but here’s a link to buy them on Amazon.

Isn’t this idea the cutest?

It goes especially well with a fall baby shower. During that time of the year, there’s no shortage of pumpkins, pumpkins spice and fall colored decorations. Candy topped cookies and color coordinated onesies complete the orange, yellow and blue decor.

There’s a pie bar at this party, where guest can sample many different flavors of pies. Click the images to shop.

5. Golden Books

It’s the perfect time to start baby’s classic book collection on his baby shower. All the books purchased for the decor will be cherished for years to come. Call me crazy, but I’m super picky about kids’ books so I would specify what books to buy.

Baby boy starts with b, plus, you can play a game on words with “mama-to-bee”. Yellow is a cheerful color that will brighten any party. I love fresh flowers for a simple decoration and they go perfectly with the bee theme as well.

Plus, the last few weeks of pregnancy sure seems to go by just as slow as a turtle’s crawl.
