    Baby Shower Centerpieces

    I'm throwing my daughter a baby shower for about 80 people next weekend. I didn't want to waste a lot of money on centerpieces, so we bundled up diapers, and I made small elephants to put on the top. My daughter can still use the diapers and I figured my future grandson will have a basket of little elephants to play with once he is born.

    Cute elephants! I might do a game like number on the bottom of the chair to see who could win the elephant (without the diapers) at their table. If there are lots of mom I am sure they would like it for their little one at home.

    I like this idea better then the diaper cake.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    So cute! What a wonderful idea for centerpieces. This is an idea that could be adapted to most showers. I see a new trend developing.

    What a great idea! And so cute! I like the idea of giving one away as a door prize. Nice job!
