Elegant Baby Shower Pictures

Above is our baby shower centerpiece...

These baby shower pictures were taken at my sister's shower about two years ago. We didn't want to have too much in the way of balloons or crepe paper, but we wanted it to feel kind of overly decadent for her.

We did some fun games we felt were pretty unique at the baby shower. We created a Price is Right Games How, having guests guessing higher! lower! etc., and a version of Family Feud, as well. Our guests were rolling with laughter!

We wanted to enjoy time with guests from out of town, so we didn't want to have to do any cooking or cleaning. We chose to have the shower at a hotel that would cater such a small party at lunch time.

We put together pampering kits for each guest to take home, and we packaged them in bright colorful bags and tissue paper. Setting them at each place setting on top of the table linens (white) helped to brighten the space without overwhelming it. Each of the kits had some nice chocolates, samples of face masks, travel-sized lotions, cute containers of bath salts, and pretty tissues. That way the guests could take a little of the "decadence" home with them.

Our baby shower centerpieces were also presents for mom-to-be. They were pretty, collapsible basket organizers in the baby's room color. Each one included a fluffy stuffed animal plus a matching inexpensive set of receiving blankets or outfit, plus a few other cute odds and ends off the gift registry.

To add more color we wrapped our door prizes in solid colored paper with bright ribbon as well.

Everyone enjoyed this. It was pretty simple and we still did the traditional things like watching mom-to-be open presents, and it seemed like everyone felt special for having been invited.

It might be fun to see if a hotel could work with you on the baby theme as far as the food is concerned!

We tried to save a few of the gift bags to send to out of town friends and relatives who couldn't make it, but sent gifts, as well to make them feel included.

Wow you people

First time on this site. I can't believe how you people need to be so cruel. I wouldn't want to be at one of your gatherings just for the fact you have no manners.
This woman took her time to make something nice for someone.
That is all that matters....

Haters need to keep their venom to themselves. Its easy to 'spew' when your real name and email isn't involved isn't it?!! Maybe you could learn to read and use some intelligence to see that the party was at a hotel and the photo the 'site' published was one of the centerpieces before she took them to the hotel, where I'm sure they didn't use plastic or paper linens.

She was giving out ideas, not asking for your careless opinion.

Thank you to all those 'brave' enough to post their ideas to this fun website.

Nice ... but mislabled

I agree with the other posters that say this baby shower wasn't "elegant" and the term "pictures" ... plural ... shouldn't have been used for one picture that wasn't even taken at the shower.
You had some really cute ideas, and it sounds like a nice baby shower. However, I would have called it classy, nice or cute ... not "elegant."
Normally, I wouldn't care how you labeled the post or how many pictures you included, but when you made this post available to search engines with specific keywords, you should have made sure your post matched those keywords.

holy crap people, simmer down. no need to rip this woman to shreds. I think your ideas were great, and thanks for sharing them! As long as the mother of the baby had fun, that's all that matters right? No one should be ASHAMED of themselves; you should be proud! You pulled together a shower for a loved one, and I'm sure they felt loved and supported by their friends and family! That's something to be proud of. Those of you who are being so damned mean for no reason can be ashamed of yourselves.

Who are you to say something isnt elegant, and since when is elegance defined by "linens, fine dinnerware, silver & flowers"? I've been to parties using paper plates that were the epitome of elegence. Perhaps "elegant" is in the eye of the beholder, and you all should be ashamed.

Good Try

The centerpieces look like a very good, creative idea that didn't quite meet the grade. Maybe it would have worked in a less "elegant" setting.

If the other reviewers would actually read what was posted you would see that she had the shower at a hotel. The picture is just showing the idea they had for their centerpieces. Goodness, no need to be so critical.

Elegant?????????
by: Anonymous

What centerpiece? It really just looked like her gifts sitting in the middle of a table. Elegant is linens, fine dinnerware, silve and flowers.

I'm confused?? Also agree with abover reviews that forgot to lower their star ratings. What is elegant and where are the other pic(s) since it is advertised as having more than one picture?

Elegant?

Agreed. Any shower is always nice for the MTB, but there is nothing above and beyond about this one.
