Even though you and your baby bump are the star of the show at your shower, you should make sure that your tables have a little something, too. You’ve probably have a table set up for your cake, party favors and all of your baby shower games, but the tables your guests are sitting at shouldn’t go unadorned. They’ll feel naked compared to the rest of your decked-out party. Plus, your guests will be spending quite a lot of time eating at those tables, so give them something cute to look at.
The best baby shower centerpieces are relatively easy to assemble, which is important when you’re planning a themed party. You don’t want to spend hours on your centerpieces when you have balloon garland arches to build and cakes to pick up. For our three picks, we found a gender-neutral option, an option for boys and an option for girls, but if you like the boy option, it’s also available in pink. They’re all very different from each other and will certainly impress your guests with how creative they each are, but the centerpieces aren’t so large that they’ll block grandma’s view when you’re opening presents.

1. Suppromo Pink Polka Dot Balloons
This unique baby shower decoration will certainly make a statement as a centerpiece. With this set, you get six balloon centerpieces, so you can place them throughout the place you choose to host the shower at. The balloons have unique dots on the inside, which adds some extra color to your tables, and then the balloons are wrapped in pink tulle—like a ballerina tutu. The balloon sits on a sticky stand to ensure it stays in place during the shower. Just be sure to read the instructions carefully while assembling.
2. Blue Elephant Boy Baby Shower Decoration
Make your little boy’s baby shower extra special with these super cute centerpieces. The kit includes 24 cards, featuring a blue elephant, baby bib, baby clothes and three other designs. The cards can be attached to the included wooden dowel sits with the 60 glue dots. You’ll get a lot of compliments on this cute little elephant. These centerpieces are larger than they appear in photos. There are also baby girl pink elephant centerpieces available.
