Stand them up in a glass container, bucket or small pail filled with candy.

Flower Balls

Flower pomander balls are a beautiful and interesting way to display flowers.

This one is sitting on a trumpet vase. They also look gorgeous on a small cake stand.

This one was made by a florist, but we found a great tutorial at Eat Drink Pretty if you want to make your own.

Flowers with Fruit

Fresh flowers always make beautiful table decorations. Put them in a pretty vase or container and you can't go wrong.

We like this idea of adding sliced fruit in a clear vase.


Edible Baby Shower Table Decorations

Fruit Bouquet

How to make a fruit bouquet:

Put a piece of floral foam in the bottom of a vase or container. Then, put fruit on wooden skewers (making sure it doesn't poke out of the top) and stick into the foam.

To make the flowers, use a cookie cutter and attach a melon ball with a toothpick. Fill in with parsley or any other greenery to fill it out and cover up the skewers.

Decorate them to match your baby shower theme and display them on a cupcake tower.

Candy Buffet

Having a candy bar is a hot baby shower trend right now. Fill some containers with candy and put a scoop inside. Find candy that matches your baby shower theme. You can also tie a piece of ribbon from the scoop.

Put some treat bags out by the candy dishes with a sign that lets everyone know to take some home with them.
