How to decorate for a baby shower star theme

If nature is not really your thing and you prefer an out-of-this-world experience (especially if you are a die hard fan of Star Trek or Star Wars), you can have a little fun with DIY decorations. All you need to do is cut out stars, some of them big and some of them small to fill the empty space. Next step would be to get a gold or silver spray and paint them like a graffiti. Make sure you don’t mess up your carpet or floor, it’s a good idea to do this somewhere safe, perhaps at your back yard. Then you let them dry for about half an hour and they are ready to hang on the ceiling. For a perfect finish, buy some star confetti and spread it evenly on the tables to create a sense of magic area. Wire garland could also fit in this baby shower decoration as it’s a magnificent way to compliment your theme. You can also have napkins with stars, candles with stars or even tablecloths. The perfect gift for this occasion would be this amazing Star Wars Yoda Jedi in Training infant bodysuit.

How to decorate for a baby shower: Flowers

Women love flowers, and let’s face it. Most of your guests will be women, so it’s no secret that flowers can act as amazing baby shower decorations, regardless of the theme you pick. Go visit your local florists and get a few quotes. Compare prices so that you make sure you get the best deal for the budget you have. I would not recommend looking for flowers in floral departments in supermarkets as they never match the quality of independent and specialized florists. They can be cheaper, but the overall result is in most cases disappointing. Most shops are so unique that they treat flower arrangements as art, you will be surprised by the final result that can be achieved for a small price. Give it a try and impress your guests! If you want to know how to decorate for a baby shower that will really make a difference, you can get these lovely pink Pom Poms from Martha Stewart Crafts that can compliment your flower arrangements like heaven. Prepare with no hassle 5 pom poms in two different size with easy instructions and create an exclusive aura of peace and happiness!
