Black and White Baby Shower Decoration Ideas

I love throwing parties and especially baby showers. Coming up with baby shower ideas is actually fun for me. I think about it even when I don’t have a shower to throw! Recently I put together this table with black and white stripes. A black and white striped table runner is one of my favorite elements to use for party decor because, well I love stripes, we all know that. But also because it’s neutral and you can pair the stripes with any other color, any flowers, balloons, etc. This time I decided that just greenery and succulents would be great with the black and white.

The plates are personalized! Black and White table for a party or baby shower.


I love to add personal touches to a table too, so I decided to cut names out of adhesive vinyl and stick them onto clear plates, so they can double as place cards! I did a similar thing recently, but with paper, making personalized name placemats. Isn’t that so cute? It’s so easy too. I used adhesive vinyl that I cut out with my Cricut. I cut it ‘mirrored’ so that the sticky part would be facing the right way.

You could mimic this idea without a cutting machine easily! Just print or trace the name on paper and cut it out, then place them under clear plates.

As far as putting the table decor together, I had some beautiful black and white fabric I had been waiting to use for something special so I quickly cut out this black and white striped table runner. I ironed it really well with starch, but otherwise left it untouched. No hem or anything! Next I added faux succulents over the runner. I had some big tropical leaves too and an oversized succulent that I had been waiting to use for something forever – that made a perfect centerpiece!

I’ve paired a striped table runner with a colorful balloon garland before too, which I highly recommend trying if you’re looking for an inexpensive party or baby shower decoration!

The cutlery and napkins came together so well with a triple fold and a little bit more of the striped fabric as napkin rings. Since we all know a table scape is all in the details, I wanted one more thing to make the napkins more visible on top of the white tablecloth. I created a little printable that can be cut out to go under the napkin. ‘Hooray for a baby shower!” seemed like the perfect phrase for it. Under the napkin there is space for each guest to write their expecting friend a sweet note – whether it’s their own motherly wisdom they’d like to share, some words of encouragement for the first sleepless few months, or an inside joke is up to them!
