2. Get Your Ducks in a Row

Let your guests-of-honor be the center of attention. And by guests-of-honor, we mean the parents-to-be AND lots of little rubber duckies!

Use duckies of all sizes in jars of water as table centerpieces or sit them out to decorate the food and gift tables. You can also use mini duckies as cupcake toppers. You can’t have too many of these little guys.

The great thing about a rubber duckie party is that most of the decorations can be gifted to mom and dad when the party is over.

Try these fun ways to include other species besides rubber duckies:

  • Put a sweet stuffed duckie front and center on the gift table
  • Roll up cute duckie baby towels in a basket
  • Spell out baby’s name in duckie-decorated letters
