Planning a baby shower for you or for a friend can be a pretty big task. You have snacks, gifts, party favors, decorations, etc. to think about and those can be a real handful.

Create a “Candy Bar”
These are awesome ways to curb a sweet tooth while making unique décor statements. You can place bulk candy items such as malt candies, taffy, etc. into mason jars or decorative jars/vases and printing out old school labels an attaching them with ribbon.
Hold the baby shower outside
Have an awesome picnic themed baby shower that can be decorated with paper lanterns. You can use vinyl tablecloths and have finger foods.
Keep it simple and at home
You can always display playful fabric or paper banners and even throw in bouquets of flowers, whether they are fresh or silk is up to you, and even go all out and use what you have at home by making ribbon flowers for a unique decoration.
Serve a minty refreshment
You can serve up an iced tea that is flavored with fresh mint and lime juice that will accompany almost any type of food that you plan to serve. You can use a natural infuser if you prefer. For decoration, use a plastic or glass tea jar that has color ribbons tied to it.
Finger Sandwiches can be fun
You can serve up savory finger foods like pear and blue cheese, easy-to-eat BLT salad, chicken salad with mango chutney, or radishes with sea salt and butter.
Deserts can be decorations
You can take all your favorite deserts and place them on decorative cake platters on a buffet style set-up. You can place cute handwritten name cards decorated with small bows to take the guesswork out of figuring what it is.
Serve Color appropriate drinks
If you are having a boy, trying serving non-alcholic blueberry mojitos, or for a girl a nice non-alcholic strawberry margarita.
Make Ice cream sandwiches
For those who are keeping the baby’s gender a big secret, you can make this treat to be gender neutral. You can use store bought wafers or even use chocolate graham crackers and fill them with neopolitan ice cream for a great treat for all ages.
No matter what you decide to do, you can always make a baby shower fun.
