Baby It’s Cold Outside Baby Shower
Winder Wonderland Baby Shower Decorations
You will notice that WHITE is a general theme for a winter wonderland baby shower. You can complement the white with whatever meets your fancy. If you are having a boy, you might go with blue, or pink for a girl. Or, you could skip the gender-specific colors and go with whatever you like.
Decorating your “Baby It’s Cold Outside Baby Shower” need not be hard, or expensive at all. With a bottle of silver spray paint and things you can find around the house, (or the Dollar Store,) you can create awesome decorations.
If Mommy-To-Be is opening up gifts at her baby shower, you will need a chair for her. Setting up the area is easy to do.
- Get the fanciest chair you have in your house, and make it the center of attraction. Do make sure the chair is comfortable.
- Put a box under her chair, with scissors and other things she will need to open her presents. This is a super smart idea, because then she will not have to climb over presents to get some much-needed supplies.
- Also, make sure she has a trash bag in which to toss the wrapping papers.
Silver glitter is beautiful and fancy, and it ties right into the winter wonderland theme.
Winter wonderland decorations like these are easy to make, too. Simply dip twigs into glue, then dip it into your silver glitter. Lay it flat to dry. Do be careful about how you lay it down, so as to prevent the twigs from sticking to the surface.
How simple, how cheap, and how pretty!
Wrapping your plastic silverware in napkins is a bit time consuming but it is worth it when you see the looks on the guests’ faces. This is yet another simple idea to follow. You can make your own paper napkin wrappers, and just tie them with snowflake stickers.
