With most baby showers, you will find adorable decor, fun party games and maybe even some party favors.

While the main focus of the baby shower is on the mom-to-be and her soon-to-be little one(s), paying close attention to the little details will make the baby shower even more memorable for the guest of honor and her guests.

Besides figuring out what kind of food you’ll be serving at the baby shower, there are three things that you’ll also need to concentrate on:

1.) Decor – I love decorating water bottles to match the theme or color of the shower. Having decorated water bottles on display not only makes it easy for the guests to grab a drink when needed but can also look cute and be part of the overall decor. In the past, I have designed, printed and adhered labels to the bottled water, but my new obsession (and a much easier way to add a little flair to anything) is to use Washi Tape.

To add a little flair to the water bottles, I cut a strip of Washi Tape and adhered it around the middle of the water bottle. I also decided to tie a small amount of ribbon to the top of each bottle:

Another cute way to decorate the water bottles is to use a strip of fabric and a safety pin. I found this cute idea on Kara’s Party Ideas blog:

 2.) Games – I’m sure we’ve all played the “Guess Which Candy Bar is Melted In The Diaper” game or the “Don’t Say the Word Baby Or You’ll Get Your Binky Necklace Taken Away” game. While these are fun and often hilarious games, some guests aren’t always into playing along…but one game that I have found that appeals to many guests is the fill-in-the-blank kind:

PaperEtiquette

Have the mom-to-be fill out the game card above before anybody else does and then have each guest complete theirs. The guest who has the most answers that are like the mom-to-be’s wins a prize!

And instead of trying to guess how big the mom-to-be’s tummy is by using a (sometimes very long) strip of toilet paper, why not have the guests guess when the little one will arrive by signing their name on this cute timeline from lulime4:

3.) Party Favors – While party favors aren’t a necessary part of a baby shower, they’re still a fun way to say thank you for coming (but don’t forget to still write thank you notes!), and there are so many adorable possibilities.

I love the idea of handing out little bottles of decorated hand sanitizer. There are so many fun colors and scents to choose from – you can even buy a variety of scents in your chosen color, and then each guest can choose the scent that he/she would like to take home. I decided to make little flag tags and adhered them to small bottles of hand sanitizer that I bought at Bath & Body Works…and let’s be honest,  I take any chance I can get to break out the paper trimmer and tape runner for a little craft time:

Another cute party favor idea (and fun play on words) is this tin filled with tea from Baby Bump Bundle:
