I'm having difficulty coming up with centerpieces for a baby shower. We want something that at the end of the shower 1 guest per table can take home. Most sites suggest things like diaper cakes and balloons and such. We don't feel that's a good take home gift. Please help.

We have always used a fresh potted plant. This time of year you could use a mum. They are not expensive and you could dress them up with a basket for a pot. You can buy white ones, then spray paint them (with paint for flowers) to go with your color theme. Hope this helps. (09/18/2006)

How about a Babies Breath plant on each table. Put pink or blue paper around the pot.
I remember once a friend and I hosted a baby shower, and we decorated different sized square boxes to look like blocks, and used these for decoration in different ways. Can't remember all the details as was about 40 yrs ago. (09/19/2006)
This is an idea: Purchase scented candles, bath sets, etc. Purchase boxes, place items in the boxes and wrap with baby gift wrap, add bow. They will make nice centerpiece and gift for the table guest.
I went half with a friend on a baby shower a few months ago and we bought a clear flat bowl for each table and filled them with pink and blue water tealight candles, and put a few plastic baby decorations like shoes, pacifiers, and clothes pins, in them with the candles. Then we bought a handful of votives and wrapped them in that mesh stuff and tied curly ribbon and set them around the bowls and spread baby confetti on the rest of the table. Worked great and everyone loved the candles. (09/21/2006)
