Picking out the perfect gift for a mother-to-be can become a bit tricky. You want your gift to be practical and functional at the same time. The more obvious choices as gifts for baby showers would involve baby clothes and supplies including bottles, bibs, and toys. But if you want to give a unique but inexpensive gift to the mother-to-be Baby Shower Centerpieces For Tables are a great buy. No, these are not the same with the cakes you eat. These are diapers creatively assembled to look like cake layers.
Still do not get it? Diaper cakes are a bunch of diapers rolled and then stacked on top of each other to resemble tiers of cakes just like those you see in wedding cakes. Instead of that edible stuff forming the layers, you have the neatly rolled diapers. You can always have 3 layers or more depending on your budget and preference. The layers of rolled diapers are then decorated with different baby toys, clothes and supplies like bibs, pacifiers, and rattles. So instead of icing on top, you have the toys and supplies covering the Diaper Cake.
Diaper cakes come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. You can always choose the theme you want to go with. You can opt to go with themes that match the sex of the baby. For baby boys, you can go with diapers that are packed in blue material. On the other hand, you can opt for pinks ones when it is a baby girl. You can also go fairy tale or princess themes for girls, while sports themes will do well with baby boys. Jungle or animal themes are an option for your cakes as well.
As for the cost of diaper cakes, you can always opt for the cheaper simple ones if you are on a tight budget. Expect for cakes with elaborate designs to cost you more.
