Butterfly Girl Baby Shower Decor
Incorporating paper, silk, or foil butterflies into the baby shower decor will make the expecting mama’s heart flutter with delight. A simple scattering against the backdrop and one on the side of the cake sets the stage for a sweet girl’s baby shower, as seen here.
Pastel Balloon Wall Baby Shower Decor
Balloon art and structures are so on-trend at the moment, they’re practically a must for any baby shower or party. Create an entire wall of pastels with gold or silver accents for a dreamy backdrop that will take any girl-mama’s big day to the next level.

This baby girl shower idea looks almost like a wedding! And why not? A white tent with drapery and a chandelier, plus elegant blush-and-gold tablescapes will make this luncheon shower one the mom-of-the-hour will never forget. The balloon arch doesn’t hurt, either!
Flower Crown Baby Girl Shower Decor
It’s a hybrid activity/decoration/accessory/party favor! Set up a flower-crown station that guests will see as soon as they enter the space: florals in little vases or laid out on plates with twine, scissors, and other supplies off to the side in mason jars. Then, once everyone has settled in, make the crowns together and wear for the duration of the shower. Or, take the shortcut and make or buy them ahead of the party and display them over a rustic chair or side table near the entryway for guests to choose and wear as they walk in.
White & Gold Baby Shower Decorations
The elegant chaise and bursts of white roses make this setup so elegant for a girl baby shower. Add a gold room-divider as shown, or even a sequin drape as the backdrop, and make the present-opening spot over-the-top gorgeous.
Disco Darling Baby Shower Decor
Disco balls are a surprising—but totally cool—choice. Pick a funky palette and go wild, like with this space. The sequin backdrop is disco ball inspired for a 1970’s feel in the very best way, while cherry blossoms and a red-and-pink balloon burst are sweet and chic.
Baby Shower Game Display
Up the ante on baby shower games by decking out your activity table with pretty details. Write instructions or details in a paint marker on glass and stash supplies in eye-catching jars or holders, as seen here.
Pastel Mason Jar Baby Shower Decorations
Mason jars can adapt to any environment or theme! In addition to gracing rustic weddings and charming homes, they’re also the perfect piece for “it’s a girl” baby shower decor. Pastel chalk-painted jars are a super cute touch at a baby girl’s shower.

Purple, Please Girl Baby Shower Decor
Pink might be the obvious choice for a baby girl shower...so why not consider purple?

Rainbow Accent Baby Shower Decor for Girls
Paper, felt, wood, or even flower petals can all be used to create a mixed-media rainbow that you can hang or prop up at the party, and the mama-to-be can display proudly in the nursery later. These could also make a fun craft for guests to do together instead of—or in addition to—shower games.
