Baby showers are supposed to be joyous occasions that give family and friends an opportunity to celebrate a baby who is on her way or has recently arrived. Decorate for the baby shower to set the scene for the festivities and establish a theme and mood. Weave a common color scheme or theme throughout the shower. Use the same colors and designs in your decorations as you did on the invitations.
Integrating flowers, real or fake, into birthday party decorations gives the event a splash of color. A simple vase of the guest of honor’s favorite flowers may serve as a table centerpiece, but consider using flowers in a variety of ways to liven up the birthday party decor. You can select a palette or theme and use flowers that incorporate the theme, or just take a walk through your garden to find blossoms, plants, vines, sprouts, twigs and other natural items that brighten the space.
If you have pictures of past Christmas print them out to be uniform in size and use them to make a photo Christmas tree on your wall.
Preparing for the arrival of the newest member of the family by decorating the nursery is a joyous task. However, with endless possibilities for making the baby’s room a special place, it’s hard to narrow down the choices, and the room can end up looking like a confusing hodgepodge. By deciding on a theme and sticking to one central idea, you can give the room a unified look—whether that theme involves animals, storybook characters or any of dozens of other possibilities.
