Baby Shower Centerpieces for Girls:
  • Flowers and candles make the perfect match for baby shower centerpieces decorations. Simply place white votive candles in tall glass vessels and attach a flirty flower outside each by tying a matching piece of raffia around the circumference.

  • Create butterfly cutouts using a large paper craft puncher and attach them to thin floral wire using double-sided tape. Place your floating butterflies over flower arrangements so it looks like they are hovering over the bright petals.
  • Create a bouquet of cupcakes like the photo above. A simple tin container and a handmade card add shabby chic baby shower elegance. This cupcake centerpiece would be stunning as the focal point of a baby shower dessert table.
