- The most important object can be a cake in the shape of a castle.
- Drape a gold, pink, or purple fabric over a couch and create a throne for the mom-to-be.

Not all superheroes wear capes! Sometimes they wear maternity clothes and bibs. This theme is great if the mom-to-be is expecting a girl, as there are many characters that can inspire her.
- Choose the colors of a character to base the party on them. You can also create an overall theme by using red, yellow, and blue on the tablecloth, balloons, decorations, and plates.

If you go for the mermaid theme, you’ll have plenty of colors and symbols to play with. Let your creativity fly with everything under the sea.
- Choose shades of purple, green, and blue.
- Make tablecloths that mimic the shape of waves for the food table. To do this, buy thin sheets of plastic wrap, cut the edges into wavy shapes, and layer these edges so they all show.
- For a more beachy feel, spread sand or shells between the food trays.
- Cut out cardboard in the shape of corals, seahorses, fish, dolphins, and mermaids to decorate the tables.
- If you want to create a stream of bubbles, blow up white or clear balloons of various sizes and hang them in a spiral from smallest to largest.
