When decorating your space (be it a home or function hall) for a baby shower, you will likely want to incorporate decorations and colours that create a warm, nurturing environment, without having to spend a fortune. Some cheap baby shower decoration ideas include using decorative clotheslines, balloons, confetti, streamers and coordinated dinnerware.

Decorative Clotheslines

One cheap baby shower decoration idea is to suspend a rope or string across the room and then attach various baby-related items to it with clothespins. Some items you can use include bibs, pacifiers and baby clothing such as socks and pajama suits. In addition to these items, hang a row of diapers on the line (which you can write on the backs of with permanent marker) so that they spell out a message, such as "Congratulations!"


Balloons come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours and are another inexpensive decoration idea. According to, you can purchase specialised baby shower bouquets (medium-sized) for between three and ten dollars. Of course, you can also make your own balloon creations using coloured balloons from convenience or party supply stores. Use light blue balloons for expected boys, pink for expected girls, and yellow for "yet to be determined."

Confetti and Streamers

You can buy confetti and streamers at most convenience stores and at all party supply stores. They will cost somewhere between 60p and £1.90 per pack. An even less expensive option is to make your own confetti by cutting up strips of coloured paper, and to make your own streamers by taping together strips of coloured tissue paper. According to, you should hang streamers from the ceiling, and sprinkle confetti on the serving and gift tables.

Coordinated Dinnerware

Purchase cups, napkins and plates at party supply stores that match your baby's shower colour theme. Also available are ones that are specifically designed for baby showers. Generally speaking, this coordinated dinnerware should cost you no more than £13, however the price will vary depending on how many cups, napkins, etc. you will need for your particular shower.
