Centerpiece

Diaper cakes are a popular baby shower centerpiece and usually resemble real, edible cakes.  Use the cloth diapers to create a carriage instead.  The simple shape of a carriage lends to making this a quick and easy project, and it doubles as gift to the parents to be!

Blow your guests away by incorporating the carriage theme into the food as well.  Make a carriage shaped cake or carriage shaped cookies for dessert.  For an extra special treat, hollow out a watermelon into the base of a carriage and use orange slices for the wheels.  Fill the watermelon up with apple slices, grapes, and variety of berries and you’ve got a snack that doubles as decorations!  Add lace around the edges of the watermelon for a cute accent.

Games

Planning baby shower games is where a lot of party hosts run into a wall when trying to include the theme of the shower.  But don’t stress out, it can be as simple as using a cutout to make a baby word scramble or “how well do you know mommy” game into the shape of a carriage. You can also fashion a wicker basket into a carriage and fill it with jelly beans, and play “guess how many jelly beans are in the basket”.  If you have a large space like a backyard, try a physically active game for your guests, like “carriage race”.  For this game you will need an actual carriage, which you can get at a second hand store (a stroller will do just fine if you can’t find a carriage) and a baby doll.  Set up an obstacle course for the race, using cones or baby toys.  Time each guest through the race track and the guest with the fastest time wins!  Add time for things like running into a cone/toy or letting the baby fall out of the carriage.
