You didn't say when the party was but what about yellow mums? I just saw some small ones at Home Depot the other day (7/18) - you could tie pink and blue ribbons around them for the party.
The best "take-home centerpiece" I ever received, although not from a baby shower, was a small potted plant.
If you like, you can find tiny terra cotta flowerpots three for $1, and put small plants in each. Any plant will do, but I like petunias and marigolds for their hardiness. Group them in the center (duh, lol!) and enjoy!
I was at a baby shower a few years back and the center pieces down the tables were pink, blue, green and yellow washcloth bunnies. They were really cute and seemed easy to make. You can buy cheap wash clothes in large packs at walmart with all the colors you need. You'd just have to find 'how to fold'. As they played games at the shower, the winners could pick a bunny to take home.
I'm thinking of a cornucopia filled and toppling out with baby items, You could create the theme for boy or girl using blue or pink or use multi pastel if unknown sex. Get creative using baby shower wrapping paper, bows, trailing rosebuds.
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.
