I am having a baby shower for my daughter-in-law outside in the back yard.
For a decorative idea, I went to the dollar store and bought some $1.00
assorted baby stuff: socks, diapers, bibs, all in assorted colours and styles. I am putting up a clothes line from tree to tree and hanging the items with clothes pegs.I think this is a cute idea. If you get more ideas, please let me know.

This isn't free but I thought it was a cute game. Take about five diapers and five different candy bars. Melt a bit of each candy bar in seperate diapers and have party guest guess what kind of candy bar is in the diaper. Give them slips of paper to write their answers on. Winners who guess all correct get a small prize.
Here are some ideas that were used at a shower for my daughter:
1) Fill small babyfood jars with butterscotch candy. Cover the top with a small swatch of Winnie-th-Pooh cloth or one of the solid colors associated with Pooh, and tie it with thin ribbon. On the side of the jar write in yellow paint pen, "HUNNY". Of course, one of the "N"'s will be written backwards just like Pooh would write it.
2) An easy decoration is a clothesline strung across the room with new clothes for the baby. Each hostess can bring one outfit or shirt or bib or whatever for this.
3) Consider using something that you would give to the new mom as the centerpiece. For instance, my daughter's theme was Pooh, so they just used the lamp that they were giving her for the centerpiece.
4) The favor that we gave out was a small votive candle wrapped in net and tied with thin ribbon (from the same roll of ribbon that we had for the Hunny pots). We attached a plastic diaper pin and a small note that read,
Here is a candle for you to light
Once the stork has made its flight.
The flame will glow to celebrate
Baby Jones' arrival date.
They were placed in a basket near the door and passed out as the guests left. The basket could even be used as your centerpiece.
Hope some of this helps. Good luck and have fun!
