Baby Shower Centerpieces by Style

1. Up the Glam Factor

Think beyond teddy bear décor and a blue or pink color palette with a modern and glamorous baby shower style. Elevate your centerpieces with dyed florals, modern glassware, and contrasting neutrals. We especially love how linen, mirrored tabletops, and even ceiling décor can work together to create a photo-worthy tablescape.

2. Add a Twist of Tropical

Tropical centerpieces are not one-size-fits-all. Capture a refined tropical vibe with fresh white blooms and tranquil palms. Lean into a more playful aesthetic with a table runner of colorful balloons or bright fruits. For a boho vibe, consider throw-pillow seating with elevated palm fronds. You can even look to tropical wedding centerpieces, as well as our favorite tropical party ideas on PartySlate, for additional inspiration.

3. Go for Boho Vibes

Boho baby shower centerpieces wow with lush pampas grass and unique color palettes. Of course, centerpieces are only one piece of the puzzle. Curate an Instagrammable boho tablescape with round throw pillows, suspended macramé, and wicker place settings. The overall vibe is all in the details.

4. Make it Whimsical

Bring a dreamy yet playful vibe to your baby shower with whimsical centerpieces. Guests will love the creativity that comes with candy-colored florals and optical illusions (cue the floating florals). We especially love how glass candle holders can be filled with colorful sprinkles, beads, or gemstones for a one-of-a-kind candlelit celebration.

5. Keep it Classic With Florals

For those who want a celebratory look that stands the test of time, consider classic floral centerpieces. We recommend using white and cream florals for your base and then adding in bolder colors such as blues or pinks. For couples who want to maintain a timeless look while still offering unique party elements, we suggest keeping your décor classic and opting for immersive entertainment options and one-of-a-kind party favors for a memorable party.

Baby Shower Centerpieces by Theme

6. Shoot for the Moon (and Celestial Vibes)

Celebrate the impending arrival of your little one amongst the moon and stars with a celestial-themed baby shower. Utilize endless rows of floating candles to mimic the stars and suspended white balloons to evoke the clouds. We also appreciate how a backdrop of blue linen recreates the night sky.
