There is no one single “perfect” baby shower centerpiece, just as there is no one single perfect mother. Mothers are unique, and what makes them perfect is how well they know their babies and their ability to take care of their needs. If you are having trouble deciding on a baby shower centerpiece for a friend or family member, take a cue from all the great mothers out there. Know her, and try to take care of her needs. Luckily, it is fairly easy to anticipate the needs of an expecting mother! Here are some ideas so your centerpiece will be perfect.
So far, these have all been budget-friendly, usable baby shower centerpiece ideas. These are great for practical moms, as well as those who haven’t had time to shop yet! But if the mother whom you are honoring already has most of her essentials, it is time to move away from the practical. And what better place to move on to than food?
An edible flower cookie bouquet is a gorgeous – and delicious – centerpiece. You can order one or you can make your own using pineapple, grapes, strawberries, and melon. Add some chocolate, and you have a stunning centerpiece that will be a huge hit with all of the guests.
Even if mom is watching what she eats, every woman needs to indulge every once in a while, and what better time than at her baby shower? If you want to win her heart, get a chocolate fountain. These make incredible centerpieces because not only do they offer warm, flowing chocolate, they are actually very attractive. You can make the presentation even prettier by arranging strawberries, cherries, pretzels, marshmallows, pineapple, biscotti, cake squares, and other goodies around the fountain. You can purchase a fountain or rent one.
The centerpiece can set the tone for the baby shower. Know what the guest of honor likes and you'll make the perfect decision every time.
