Pink and  Brown Table Decorations – Pink and brown tableware can be very simple using a solid color tablecloth and tableware. Single-color items are generally the least expensive way to go. There are also a variety of printed plates, napkins and cups available.  Add interest to your table with centerpieces. Glass vases can be dressed up with pink or brown glass stones or marbles. Add some pink carnations and you have an inexpensive, pretty centerpiece. You can purchase vases from Ikea, a wholesale floral store, target, or dollar store.

Haley from The Autocrat is the creator of this lovely pink and brown baby shower. The sweet table was filled with treats and Haley did a great job incorporating pink and brown into everything from chocolate dipped pretzels to strawberry granola parfaits. The plastic baby bottles filled with small candy was a fun addition to the baked goods.

Pink and brown favors are everywhere and those that top the list for popularity are either edible or usable ones. Unless you are having a couples shower, feminine items are appreciated like candles, manicure sets, pink luggage tags and soaps.

This lovely food table, created by Jessica of Jessica Kettle Photography, was actually used for a baptism. However, there are so many perfect touches that could work for a pink and brown baby shower.

*The puffy decorations hanging from the ceiling in various shades of pink add a splash of color to the room.
*The table runner also brings in the pink color.
*Chocolate cupcakes adds a touch of brown to the table.
*Candles add elegance. You could use either brown or pink.
