10 Baby Shower Finishing Details (That Make a Difference!)

The baby shower biggies are obvious: cake, seating, food, venue/household, favors, etc. — but what about those little finishing details? The little added elements that really pull an entire party together?

These are actually some of the most fun party planning elements to think about. From straws to centerpieces to cake stands, these are the details that really pull a party together. The details that pop in photographs and keep guests talking.
