Centerpieces are the focal point to all your table decorations and the best way to elevate your party decor. The best part is that they’re simple to DIY, even if you’re on a budget.
Bring elements of wintertime nature indoors with vases full of branches and pinecones. Spray paint them with a frosted white shade to bring in the snowy feel of a winter wonderland.
A winter floral bouquet is another great and simple centerpiece idea for any winter wonderland baby shower theme!
Cover your dessert table full of sweet treats in the shade of white. Think white chocolate covered pretzels, white frosted cupcakes with glittering sprinkles, powdered donut holes, and more.
Add Christmas lights or twinkle lights along the table for instant ambiance.

Add a little color to the mix by adding greenery, browns and berry reds to resemble a holiday winter wonderland.
Consider adding mini Christmas trees or evergreen garland along the table to elevate the entire look. You could also add a banner of hanging snowflakes along the backdrop of the dessert table.
You can also hang garland of white snowflakes throughout the event, paired with twinkling Christmas lights to really set the white Christmas tone.
Adding touches of silver throughout your dessert table and other tablescapes is another classic idea for a winter wonderland baby shower or a little snowflake baby shower. You can find silver trees at craft and dollar stores that can easily be mixed into the baby shower’s decor.
Balloon Arch & Backdrops
Balloon garland and backdrops are easy elements to add to this favorite winter theme to create an instant focal point to the room.
Place a backdrop behind the dessert table to elevate its’ look, and consider adding balloon garland to a blank wall as a photography backdrop.
Choosing the best table setting decorations to fit your theme will really elevate your entire event. Regardless of your budget, you can add colorful napkins or plates and centerpieces that pop.
Consider adding smaller winter accents like pine cones, greenery, polar bear figurines, etc. The holiday season is the perfect time of year to add Christmas ornaments or mini Christmas trees.
You can get as fancy as you’d like for your winter wonderland baby shower. How beautiful is the above tablescape? I love the addition of the polar bears and white trees for a true Arctic-like event.

Hot Cocoa Bar
Create a hot chocolate station at your winter wonderland baby shower. You can bring in different candies and stir sticks so your guests can create a custom made hot cocoa drink to warm them up during the winter wonderland event.
Think crushed peppermint, white choclate chips, Andies mints, marshmallows, shredded coconut and more. How beautiful is this hot chocolate charcuterie board? This is an example of how simple you can make your hot cocoa station while still making it pack a punch in your decor.
Baby Shower Favors
