As far as we’re concerned, this is really one for Team Baby Shower. Based on the collected inspiration, you make a plan and collect fun decorations that match the theme. If you involve the entire group for this, chances are it will become a mess of completely different styles.
You can of course ask around in the group for standing tables, cake stands, garden lamps or juice dispensers. But make sure you are the one providing the balloons, flags, pompoms, lanterns, tablecloths and napkins. When all this is nicely coordinated, the space suddenly transforms into a stylish baby shower. Many stores already offer very affordable party decorations, so it really doesn’t have to be expensive. But there are also a lot of free options to furnish the space in an attractive way. For example, save glass jars in which you put tea lights or gypsophila, use beautiful wrapping paper as a table runner, decorate the location with old baby photos of the entire group (and let your girlfriend choose who’s on each photo!) or take a look around you for natural decoration: you can create beautiful decorations with pampas grass, pine cones and twigs from the forest.
