It's always a blessing to have a baby on the way but sometimes having a baby shower is expensive! It's my goal to find the most frugal and cheap baby shower decorating ideas out there to help save on your budget. Here are some great ideas for a girl's baby shower!
Baby Shower Tutu Idea
It's always a must to make some punch for your guests at your baby shower but make it ADORABLE by setting the punch bowl on top of a little pink tutu! You can even make your own tutu with fabric from JoAnn's, Michael's, or any other craft store!
Baby Shower Punch Recipe
If you want to make some yummy pink punch, try this simple and cheap recipe! It only requires two ingredients that are easy to find at any grocery store.
- 6 Liters of Ginger Ale
- 3 Quarts of Raspberry Sherbet
- Chill ginger ale in fridge for a couple hours.
- Set out the raspberry sherbet about 30 minutes before the party starts.
- -Just before serving, put scoops of sherbet into the bottom of the punch bowl and add the ginger ale on top.
- Stir and serve!
Baby Shower Banner Idea
One of the cheapest baby shower decorations you can do is to hang up baby clothes on a string with little clothespins! You can hang it on a mantle, a wall, or some chairs. Add some baby bibs and you have yourself a cute backdrop for the party!
Baby Food Jar Favors
Start saving empty baby food jars to make your own adorable baby shower favors! All you need is pink spray paint, a glue gun, pink candy, and little cheap plastic crowns. They are so adorable and are not that expensive to make. Or you can also buy them pre-made here! Made The Diva Dish
Make Your Own Ballerina Cupcake Toppers
I just love this ballerina themed baby shower idea! All you need to make these cupcake toppers is pink streamers, ribbon, white cardstock paper, and sticks. You could also use these for table bouquets by just sticking them in a vase with rice or marbles! Made by Too Cute Creations SB

Baby Shower Frame Decorations
If you have any old frames laying around you can stick some cute polka dot scrapbook paper in it and and print the letters B A B Y to put in front of it. Add a string on the back to hang it up and you have an adorable wall decoration for the party.
Hershey's Chocolate Bar Favors
Buy Hershey's chocolate bars in bulk and decorate them for an inexpensive favor! You can also use it for a gender reveal party where you line up the different bars so people can guess between a boy or girl!
Baby Shower Water Bottle Labels
You can personalize all your water bottles at the party by printing your own labels! You can design one in many programs, one for example is PicMonkey.com. There are also many websites that you can download water bottle labels for free.

Mason Jar Flower Arrangements
This is my favorite idea yet! You can fill empty mason jars with any kinds of flowers you have and wrap it with pink yarn and woven material. These mason jar centerpieces are easy and cheap to make (...and they look fabulous!)
Baby Rattle Cake Pops
Instead of buying those expensive shower cakes from a bakery, consider making your own cake pops! You can turn them into cute little "baby rattles" by adding a bow and ribbon on the stick. There are many pans and cake pop makers available if you want them done the easy way!
