Use as CenterpiecesDepending on the exact size and specifications of your baby shower mini cakes these can serve as wonderful centerpieces for the baby shower table decorations. Just think you get more bang for the buck this way. Your decorations and your cake all rolled into one! If you decorate each mini cake in a different way with different colored frosting and different decorations you can easily create a ton of stunning centerpieces. For example if your baby shower theme was Noah's Ark you could make 5 mini cakes for the centerpieces and then on each cake decorate different groups of animals that will go onto the ark.
Just to carry the theme a little farther instead of doing the traditional Noah's ark theme of two of each animal by do two of each animal as a mother and baby. So on one cake at a table you might have a mother and baby Giraffe. Then at another table you might have a mother and cute baby elephant cake. Of course at the table where the guest of honor will be sitting you could tie in the theme by adding the ark into the decoration. People will love to walk around and look at these wonderful unique mini baby shower cakes!
Just as a birthday party has popular symbols, such as balloons and candles, a baby shower cake often features one or more of the following decorations:
~Baby clothing, such as a jumper or booties;
~Toys, such as blocks, teddy bears, and rattles;
~Accessories, such as pacifier, baby bottle, or carriage;
~Flowers, especially spring flowers and buds;
~Angels and storks;
~Cute baby animals, such as rabbits, ducks, lady bugs, elephants, penguins, and butterflies;
~Infant dolls; and
Go for pastel colors or select bold fun colors. There are no fixed rules, unless your guests of honor expect certain traditions to be followed. Some people prefer pink, baby blue, or yellow--although these colors are not required.
Bedtime Story Theme is the first on our baby shower themes list. In this theme, the decorations for the venue can have books around like a library or life-sized characters of the all time favorite bedtime stories of kids. The invitation can be shaped like a book. You can require your guests to come with copies of their favorite fairy tale or bed time story book or bring board books as a gift to the baby. Prizes or souvenirs of the baby shower can be the favorite story book of the parents of the baby when they were still kids.
