If you’re throwing a baby shower and know that the baby is a boy, you’ll have many options to make this celebration a creative and fun one. The first thing that you’ll need to do is pick out a theme for the party. Boys love animals so this monkey baby shower theme might be a good fit.
Of course it’s always good to talk to the mom to be and find out which theme she would really like to have. In this article, I’ll give you some ideas from which to choose from.
It’s a Boy- Ahoy!
It’s very easy to find decorations with the saying “It’s a boy” on it. Decorate everything in navy blue, red, and white: invitations, balloons, tablecloths, napkins, cups, and baby shower favors.
The central point of this theme can be bears in marine costumes. You can have many items feature the navy baby bears.
For example on top of the cake you can have ship and a bear sitting. To the right is a picture of a navy bear baby shower to give you more ideas.
There are also cupcakes that feature ships, anchors, and bears. You can place big navy blue or red cut outs around the party of bottles, diapers, booties, etc.
Boys love sports. This theme is one that men can relate to so you might want to have a co-ed baby shower and invite the dads too. Some of the more popular themes are baseball, basketball, football and soccer.
You can also find out if the dad is a team fan and throw a shower honoring that team. The best place to find decorations for sports teams are birthday party stores. Buy a ball and have the guests write small message and sign the ball with a permanent marker. This makes a great gift and souvenir for the parents.
The food for a sports baby shower can even be related to sports events such as hot dogs, hamburgers, popcorn, chips, nachos and corn dogs. The dads can play water balloon volley out in the yard. Another game to play is bottle bowling which is just like bowling except you use bottles. You can decorate the baby shower with jerseys, caps and sports equipment.
Decorate your party in a country style. Use real ropes, saddles, boots and cowboy hats to create that western feeling. Use a white table cloth and then tie a rope around the edges of it. The color scheme of a cowboy baby shower is white, brown, black and checkered cloth.
You can choose whether to use red or blue checkered. Make your own baby shower invitations cutting a cowboy hat out of brown cardboard. A cute idea for the cake is placing a baby on top of a horse. The guest can play cowboy hat toss where they try to make the hat reach baby bottles.
Spread the bottle far apart. If they reach a bottle they get a prize. For the favors, tie a western napkin ring around checkered bandanas for everyone to take home.
