Little Boy Blue Baby Shower Theme

If you know your little bundle of joy is a boy and you are happy to announce it to the world, your options for a boy-themed baby shower are endless! Here are a few of our favourite ideas for a baby boy themed baby shower.

Colours

Chocolate and eggshell blue are an original colour combination, but there's no reason to shy away from traditional baby blue.  Whatever you choose, match your stationery, decorations, cake and favors to the colour theme of your choice.

Invitations

When a guest receives their invitation, this is the first chance you have to show the theme of your baby shower. For a chocolate and blue theme, choose invitations such as the gorgeous ones available from Alannah Rose. You can equally use fill-in-the-blanks stationery or make your very own with the gorgeous range of scrapbooking and paper-craft supplies that abound.  

Decorating and styling 

For decorations, try hanging tiny blue and white onesies and booties with clothepins or minature pegs.  These serve as a cute backdrop, and after the party, the mum-to-be can take them all home. How practical and gorgeous!  If you're on a budget, try spacing out the clothesline with blue paper lanterns which look terrific and are really inexpensive.

Set your table to complement your blue and chocolate theme.  Pink Frosting has a range of tableware in chocolate and aqua dots. Or decorate with plain white and crystal (the best you have at home) and use chocolate and blue polka dot ribbon to add character to your napery and table settings. Tie little ribbons around the stems of your champagne flutes and use the ribbon as a napkin ring.

Entertainment

Baby shower games needn't be all about nappies and dummies. Why not have guests create a memory book for Mum and Bub? Take a Polaroid picture of each guest, give them a card in the theme of your event and have them write a piece of advice or memory on the card. You can then attach these to a chocolate coloured pin board, which can serve as a lovely memory board well into the future.

Food and drinks

As for the baby shower cake, cupcakes are always a favourite for any party.  Serve sweet little chocolate cakes with blue frosting and blue and brown dots to match the theme perfectly! Easy to make with some food colouring and a simple base chocolate recipe.

Favour and thank yous 

And finally, send your guests home with a some baby boy favours. Some ideas include baby boy jumpsuit themed photo frames or candles, or chocolate coloured hand fans (to keep with the colour theme, attach some personalised aqua ribbon with the message of your choice).
