Homemade Miniature Diaper Babies:

Or use a couple or more and place them in a flat decorated shoe box or in the lid. 

You can also put 2 or 4 babies back to back and fix them with a ribbon so they can stand on the table. And if you add some string you can hang them up and have them dangle from the ceiling.

If the party has a special theme, select the socks and washcloths accordingly or simply choose pastel baby Colors to go in line with the rest of your decoration.
