“Rubber ducky, you’re the one!” If rubber ducks are the theme for your baby shower, of course we can help you with the favors. But what about cakes and cookies, decorations and tableware? We have a few ideas to help you with those, too! (Please note that links provided are to our own products or are affiliate links.)
Of all the Rubber Ducky tableware out there, we think this is the cutest! Choose from paper dessert plates, cups, and napkins, all in this whimsical duck design.
I’d be inspired to create a bright blue punch with blue kool-aid and lime sherbet, just to match the colors in this tableware. Make some Ducky Ice Cubes with orange juice, toss them into the “tub” and you’re good to go.
Too much duck? Order only the napkins with the duck motif and get the remaining tableware, spoons, forks, etc. in white, blue, yellow, or orange.
Now that you have the adorable place settings, you need some ducky cuteness to serve on them! While we probably wouldn’t recommend the roast duck with the mango salsa, a duck cake would probably be just right. And a three-dimensional duck cake would be…well, just ducky!
Wilton 3-D Rubber Ducky Pan will make a 3D cake! Set up to decorate on a platter spread with blue “water” frosting and white “bubble” marshmallows! Lemon cake with lemon frosting would be so yummy for a ducky theme cake.
One of my favorite guest favor ideas (well, apart from lip balm favors) is to make and decorate cookies, then wrap in cello bags with ribbons and tags. This Ducky Cookie Cutter will make perfect aquatic friends for your guests to take home. (Of course they’d be delicious at each place setting, too: tie a name tag to each bag and arrange your seating with the ducks’ help.)
To decorate the table, add something extra to your favors, or maybe use as cupcake toppers (they’re just under a petite 2″ long!), why not try Baby Girl Rubber Duckies or Baby Boy Rubber Duckies? They come by the dozen in an assortment of styles.
