    because a lot of baby ducks are yellow. i think the rubber ducky is supposed to symbolize a baby duck, therefore it's yellow in color.

    Why do we draw the shape of the heart in the way we do, when a real heart really looks nothing like that?

    There are many other questions like that you could ask. The answer is, honestly, there isn't an answer.

    Somewhere along the line, society accepted the yellow rubber duck, just as society has accepted a lot of other things. It didn't happen suddenly or anything. Yellow was probably just a color a manufacturer chose once, and it stuck.

    That is a very good question, though. I wish I could provide a better answer to that, and other similar questions, but some answers just don't exist.

    And it's very true...I've never even seen a yellow duck =P

    Okay, let’s begin with the actual baby shower room. You can get several if not all of the decorative items you need from your local arts and crafts store or from any major big-box retail shop in your neighborhood. And if for some reason you can’t find these items at these places then I’m sure you can find them for cheap online. For your color scheme you are going to need pink, orange and yellow. These colors will set the pace for all of your decorations. You will need to get pink streamers and yellow streamers. You will need to attach them to your ceiling so that they crisscross throughout the party room. You also need to purchase orange helium balloons. Make sure to release them shortly before the actual baby shower because you don’t want your rubber ducky baby shower to be littered with airless balloons. You are going to need two banners. One banner over your guest table and the other banner over your main table where your centerpiece and food will be. Your guest table will be the first thing everyone sees as they enter the baby shower space. You can get banners made at Wal-Mart and other big box retail stores. The banners should be consistent with your color scheme. They both can be pink and yellow or one can be blue and the other can be yellow. Its up to you. Make sure you talk to the store’s staff about all of the available options you have and the types of banners they can create for you. The banner over the guest table should read something exciting and theme related. A good example would be “welcome to Bill & Judy’s rubber ducky extravaganza!” The other banner over the main table should read something funny, clever and theme related. Here’s a good example “splish splash we be taking a bath!” Your tables will also need a decorative touch. You can drape both tables with a pink tablecloth and you can cut out some yellow felt duckies and attach them to the top of the tablecloth. You don’t have to over do it because both tables will have plenty of items on top of them like gifts, food and diaper cakes. It would also be nice if you could get matching tableware. You don’t need anything fancy, just plastic tableware that goes along with your colors.

    Pekin ducklings, the most common "model" for illustrations and toys, are yellow until their adult feathers come in.
