Easy DIY Baby Shower Flower Centerpieces

Easy DIY Baby Shower Flower Centerpieces

Even if you’ve never make a floral arrangement, you can feel confident about creating pretty, easy DIY baby shower centerpieces that look top-notch. The best part? You can make many of these on any budget and with some common household items.

Use fresh flowers

Adorn your tables with fresh flowers for the base of your centerpieces and you’ll never be disappointed! Soft pastel colors like pink peonies are perfect for baby shower decorations, but don’t be afraid to experiment with cheery pops of color like yellow tulips.

For a country chic or rustic look, use mason jars. They’re readily available and everyone loves them. If you’re not sure what to do with your pretty vases and arrangements after the event, consider having a raffle at each table so the winner can take home the table’s centerpiece.

Add some fruit

This is a favorite for brunch baby showers… add sliced fruit to the floral arrangement vase. Sliced citrus like limes, lemons and oranges work really well. But you can always choose something seasonal like apples and blueberries.
