Sports Themed Baby Shower Decorations

sports themed baby shower decorations

With sports themed baby shower decorations, you can either use one sport or several different sports.  Some baby shower items feature multiple sports, but for the most part they focus on just one. If you’re wanting to use several sports, you can mix and match the different decor items.

One great way to decorate a sports themed shower is with sports balls. You can use more decorative, inexpensive options like the miniature football shown above (it’s available in other colors, too) or you could use real sports balls.

All Star Centerpiece Set from Big Dot of Happiness

There is a large collection of baby shower items at Big Dot of Happiness that feature sports.

Sports Themed Tableware

The tableware that you use for a shower can also contribute to the decorations if you’d like.  There are lots of sports themed tableware that you can choose from.  With the majority of these collections you can either buy the tableware in a set and have lots of matching items or you can just get one or two themed items.  We suggest getting one or two tableware items that go with the sports theme and then using solid colored tableware that matches for everything else.
