Baby Shower Decoration Ideas Under $50

If you’re having a baby shower, costs can easily go up into hundreds, if not thousands, what with renting a venue, catering food and entertainment! Save some costs on your decorations with our ideas!

1. Do Your Own Centerpieces

Natural Pairing / Baby Shower Decoration Ideas

Add jewel-toned fruit to a white bowl with sensuous lines for an easy arrangement. Look for fruits of differing sizes and shapes but with similar coloring, as with these plums and pomegranates. Best, you can eat them during or after the party!

Or some tissue paper flowers like so:

Some Mod Podge foam letters are a great way to decorate the table as well. Try spelling out the baby’s name! The paint dries pretty quickly and you can also add your own designs, so win-win and you spent little or no money!

Gold Brushed Balloons add a touch  of class to your baby shower. All you need is some paint and some upward strokes and flourishes, some helium, and your guests will be wowed by the beauty and your creativity! You can add some ribbons or tassels to make it prettier!

3. Wall Decals

Wall decals are a total game changer for party decorations. You can find wall decals for every space, style and budget and if you’d like, long after the party is over, you can leave the decals up on the wall where your party was!

To welcome a baby girl, this elf girl cycling on a pretty flower bicycle makes for a great mural! And it’d only set you back by $4.99 USD.

Of course, if you’re having an animal-themed party, this would be more suitable instead.

To match your budget, this place card idea is something to keep in mind for your baby shower decoration ideas – some coloured paper in the shape of a butterfly or any other cute figure (all available at Popular, of course) with your guest’s name written on it and stuck in between the prongs of a fork.

If you’re having an outdoors party, why hesitate to use flower pots as utensil holders?

Diaper Cakes make for great centerpieces as well.

While a little over the budget of $50, just imagine these mini cakes for $69 sitting prettily on your table! Not only are they adorable to look at, their practicality means they can be used after the party for the baby in a few months’ time.

While you can place a budget on baby shower decorations, there’s no budget on creativity or fun, so let loose and don’t be too stressed!

For everything else, there’s Diaper Cakes.
