Between the favors, the cake, the decor, and — let’s not forget — what you’re going to wear, planning a baby shower comes with a laundry list of things to remember. And one item that might fall to the bottom of your list (understandably) are the baby shower centerpieces.
We get it: You don’t want the tables to seem noticeably vacant, but you also don’t want the centerpieces to cost an arm and a leg. Especially when you may not use them again.
Say no more — we’ve rounded up some centerpiece options that are stylish and wallet-friendly.
1. Pink and Rose Glitter Jar
If you love glitter (and let’s be real, who doesn’t?), then you’re gonna need one of these glitter-dipped Mason jars in your life — STAT.
2. “Little Peanut” Elephant Party 3D Honeycomb Table Centerpiece
These 3D paper centerpieces are literally the definition of “no fuss.” They’re super cute, inexpensive, and go perfectly with an elephant-themed baby shower. Just open them up, set ’em on the table, and you’re done.
3. Baby Block Floral Centerpiece
We kind of love how these hand-crafted centerpieces turn classic baby blocks into a vase for florals in a super tasteful way.
4. Oh Baby Gender-Neutral Diaper Cake Centerpiece
If you’re keeping the gender a surprise, these diaper cakes are the perfect pick. They’re also a waste-free alternative to florals, since you’ll definitely get some use out of those diapers later.
5. Custom Name Stick Centerpieces
Looking for a personalized touch? These customizable centerpiece sticks will add just the right amount of flair to the table. Stick a few in a vase to make things sparkle.
6. Ombre-Painted Mason Jars
The ombre trend just never gets old — and these gorgeous ombre-painted Mason jars are pretty much a prime example of why. Fill them with flowers, a bit of baby’s breath, or a few centerpiece sticks to complete the look.
7. “Baby” Burlap Mason Jar Wraps
If you’re looking to decorate a dessert table or just looking to fill up a lot of space on each guest table, these burlap Mason jar wraps will let you spell out the word “baby” for a sweet and rustic touch. (Bonus: If you order through this Etsy seller, you can personalize them to spell out any message you want.)
8. Long-Stem Paper “Forever” Roses
Going for a book-themed baby shower? Have the pages of classic children’s books turned into long-stemmed roses you can place in a vase or Mason jar at the center of the table. These are made-to-order, so the Etsy seller will work with you on using the pages from books or music sheets that have a personal meaning to you.
9. Pastel Poms
Yes, poms are typically used to create a floral-inspired backdrop, but they also double as great table decor, or even mock flowers. Buy an inexpensive set and get creative with how you arrange them on the table to make them pop with color.
