long way since the days of honeycomb paper
decorations and stork centerpieces. Today’s baby
showers are far more sophisticated and stylish, as they
are designed for grownups after all.
Setting a pretty tabletop is simple to do when you use your
invitation as inspiration. We have some great ideas to dress
your table, plus a great tip on how to cross-reference
vibrant colors in our invitation of orange, green, and white.
We placed fabric over the tablecloth and used the same
pattern in a frame over the dessert table. This is a good
clustering a few items together. A tall urn filled with flowers
was flanked by an owl figurine and a baby bottle which
holds one of our Pear Tree invitations.
When you use invitations as cute as these you’ll want to
show them off as part of the decor. We filled the baby bottle
with gumballs to weigh it down and add color. Then cut a
slit into the nipple and slid the invitation into it. This is a fun
way to add a “baby” touch to the modern owl theme baby
often. At about $1 each, these plates become a money
saver over time since you can use them over and over for
all occasions. Dress them up with colorful napkins wrapped
with ribbon and a place card made with card stock and a
but can tend to be a bit juvenile or even embarrassing. We
prefer thoughtful activities that guests can do and then
leave for the mom-to-be. We designed a “Wishes for Baby”
card that everyone can fill out. Mom can read them aloud
during the modern baby shower or save them for later.
