If you’ve been looking for elegant baby shower ideas, then you’ve come to the right place.
There are many things that you can do to create a refined look for your party. With the use of crystals, glass, silverware and many flowers, you’ll be able to create a refined environment for your guests. In this article, you’ll find a variety of tips that will help you out.
Elegant Baby Shower Invitations
Even though we live in a digital era where emails and Facebook messages are being used as invitations, people still love receiving printed out invites. There are specialized companies that can print out a large quantity of invitations.
You can have them use golden ink and a cursive font. Of course if you’re trying to save money, this might not be the best option. (Here’s an article on how to throw a baby shower on a budget if you need to spend less.) When planning your invites, don’t forget to have the most important information such as date, time, location and the expectant parents’ names.
Sophisticated Baby Shower Decorations
When planning a refined party like this, it’s a great idea to rent or borrow many of the fine linens and other decorations that you’ll need.
Rent or borrow satin tablecloths, crystal flower vases, crystal punch bowls, silver trays, and porcelain pedestal trays. Use real silverware instead of disposables. Serve the juices, teas and water in wine and champagne glasses.
Arrange the sweets and finger food onto different leveled trays. Pick out some baby shower centerpieces for tables and either make them yourself or purchase them ready made. Make a diaper cake out of bamboo cloth diapers instead of disposable ones and tie thick satin ribbons around each tier.
To create an impressive look, use white Christmas lights on the tops of the foods’ tables and under the table lighting. Display elegant baby shower favors on a special table near the door to make it easier to distribute them when the guests leave.
Instead of having balloons, use flowers to liven up your party. Although carnations and daisies are cheaper, there are more beautiful flowers that are worth the extra cost. Some wonderful flower choices for your shower are roses, gerberas, lilies, and even some orchids.
Tie the flowers together to form bouquets for the guests’ tables. Another idea is to have them floating in a round glass vase bowl along with floating candles. Have a larger flower centerpiece for the sweets table. Create garlands of natural flowers to adorn stair banisters, window sills, and the edges of foods’ tables.
