Decorating for a baby shower can be simple and understated or glitzy and glamorous. Whether you’re trying to keep it simple or celebrate with a splash, personalized glassware works well as table decorations for all styles of baby showers. Since the mom-to-be won’t be imbibing wine or champagne, you don’t have to invest in customized wine glasses or champagne flutes, but there are still plenty of other glassware options to choose from that you can use in a myriad of ways. The key to using glassware as a decoration is to choose the right style and size of glassware and the right color and font for the customization.

Types Of Decorative Glassware

Almost every expectant mother has a sweet tooth. Personalized glass candy jars are perfect for filling with different styles of candy and using as part of a centerpiece or to create a custom self-serve candy bar at the party. You can choose both tall and short jars to add dimension to a centerpiece, or choose all of the same sized jars and fill with the expectant mom’s favorite candy to include as part of the dessert table.

Candles are a great choice for personalized glassware that you can use as party favors or baby shower game prizes. Many online retailers sell small to medium sized customizable candles in different colors and scents. There are also small glass jars with lids that make perfect containers to hold mints or chocolates for party favors.

Customizing Baby Shower Glasses

Once you choose the style of personalized glassware that you want, it’s time to decide on the customization. If the mom has a color scheme for the nursery, you may want to use that for the lettering on the glass. You can also go with the traditional blue for a boy and pink for a girl, or choose neutral colors if you don’t know the gender of the baby. The font you choose should also represent the mom and baby. There is elegant scrollwork font perfect for a baby girl or more straightforward arial font for a baby boy.

Some of the customization choices are the name of the baby, the date of the baby shower, the name of the expectant mom and dad, and a basic congratulatory sentiment. Using glassware as a means to decorate for a baby shower can turn any casual affair into an elegant affair and will provide a keepsake that both the guests and the guest of honor will cherish for years.
