The baby shower centerpiece can serve a dual purpose at the party. The centerpiece will add color and life to the table setting, and it can also be used to feed guests, as a place to put small gifts for the expecting mom, or as a place to store party favors for the guests. Centerpieces that can be shared by the guests, rather than taken home by one guest at the end of the party (unless it's the guest of honor) are best. The centerpieces can match any theme or color scheme.
The baby shower is a beautiful gift that friends or family can give to an expecting couple. Traditionally a baby shower is hosted by a non-relative, but in modern times it is acceptable for anyone to host the baby shower. Baby showers may be for women and girls only, or they can include male relatives and friends.
