Rubber Ducky decorations are easy, colorful and sold everywhere. Build the theme on duckies, bubbles and baths.
CENTERPIECES - Float a duckie in a glass pedestal bowl filled with California Crystals which look like bubbles. A drop of blue food coloring adds zing. Attach a balloon for height. Surround the base with yellow curling ribbon frills. (California Crystals are found at candle stores or wedding supply stores, and often used for floating candle arrangements. If you can't find them, water with a drop of blue food coloring will work, too)
GIFT TABLE - Fill a baby bathtub with ducky-themed gifts for the focal point on the gift table. Use white netting inside to soften the look and fill in between items. Cover with shrink wrap for a professional look. Top with yellow curling ribbon.
FAVORS - Fill small plastic bags with blue raffia "water" and ducky-shaped soaps. Tie off with curling ribbon. Stand upright on each place setting.
PUNCH BOWL - Float duckies on punch bowl. Make the punch blue if you're brave enough (use blue raspberry fruit juice and 7-Up)
DOOR PRIZE - Gift basket of bubble bath, lotion etc.; Add a ducky and rewrap in yellow cellophane.
PRIZES FOR GAMES - Wrap in yellow and orange tissue. Fill galvanized wash tub with round light blue balloons (blown up very small to look like bubbles). Arrange gifts on the "bubbles." Decorate the handles with more yellow curling ribbon. Keep the bath theme for prizes: pretty soaps, bath beads, hand towels, etc.
PLATES, NAPKINS, CUPS - Use bright yellow with orange accents. You can avoid using the boring matched sets of baby paper goods found at card stores.
