Here are some money saving tips: Use decor as gifts: Instead of buying decorations, use gifts as the main decor. You can have diaper cakes, washcloth roses, and gifts of baby dishes to hold small treats. I saw this great idea in Pregnancy Magazine once that discussed using a simple, but pretty silk ribbon as a streamer, and then hanging baby clothing gifts on it with cute clothes pins. I LOVE this idea. It's practical and adorable. Make the cake yourself: Homemade baby shower cake is much less expensive than store-bought. Trust me, the expecting mama won't care what the cake looks like, so long as it's edible. Get homemade baby shower cake ideas. Have the party at home: There's no need to go to a restaurant, or to rent a place. And added bonus of this is that the expecting parents won't have to cart gifts around from place to place. Print out free baby shower games. You can find some cool games for free at: Have a potluck style shower: Instead of providing food, have everyone bring some nibbles or drinks. Print out free baby shower invites and thank you cards. You can find free (and cute) printable card options at: Invite only the folks who really matter: You don't need to invite the whole office, or friends you haven't seen in years. You'll have more fun, and cut costs if only special friends and family members attend your shower. [baby shower image via Flickr]
