1. Budget Baby Shower Party Decoration Kit with Pom Poms, Tassels, and Garland
Talk about bang for your buck! For less than $20 you get all of your hanging decorations, perfect for putting around a buffet table, draping as a backdrop, or hanging from the ceiling. The quality is great and, add a couple of Command strips, and set up and take down are an ease. I have used these before for a mint, coral, and gold themed shower I hosted. They also come in purple, silver, and white, and pink, cream, and gold.

2. Pennant Banner Flags
Who doesn’t love a pennant banner… it screams fun party, or parking lot sale! Done correctly, it adds a bit of old school modern flair to your get together. I usually like to use the banner to hang on the wall, but I’ve also done it to wrap a gift table or a buffet. Personally, I love these ones on Amazon because they look like they’re either homemade or bought on an expensive Etsy shop. For less than $10 they are a total score in your budget baby shower decor book.

3. Fun BABY Balloons
This is the ultimate bang for your buck budget baby shower decoration. Helium foil balloons are great for any get together… when they spell out what you are celebrating, even better! Plus, they make a great photo op for the mama-to-be and her guests. If you didn’t have time to get them blown up with helium the day of the party, you could always just blow them up with good old fashion air (using a straw and your lungs) and Command strip them to the wall behind the buffet, gift table, or where mama will be sitting. And for $12, you just can’t go wrong with balloons, after all everyone loves balloons!

4. Sequin Table Runner
The ultimate in table decor… you know you’re at a well-planned baby shower if you have a sequin table runner! Love that this comes in so many colors and is only $9, a true budget baby shower score. I use my table runners for so many events and holidays. They are great because dress up any table you are using and help tie your color scheme together. This particular company has like a million different colors to choose from, and even a Chevron print! I chose the blush color for the baby shower I threw, it was close enough to “coral,” right!?

5. Table Decor
So this last one is kind of a cheat because while you can find this lantern on Amazon, I would highly recommend ordering from Ikea directly because it’s a heck of a lot cheaper there. Only $4 a piece, what a steal! I love these little lanterns because they are super adorable and versatile. Also, they don’t die… like flowers. Put a tealight in these and you’ve got yourself a fancy looking little table decoration that people can actually see over and doesn’t cost you a fortune.
