Boy Baby Shower Inspiration

Planning my daughter’s  baby shower was probably the most exciting events I have ever planned, for obvious reasons, (the anticipation of a new baby I get to spoil….and give back!) In addition, the vast array of creative ideas on the internet overwhelmed and excited me at the same time. I felt like a kid at a candy store with Pinterest my favorite obsession. As soon as we knew a little boy was on the way, I knew for sure pink was out and I had to choose the perfect palette and theme. Traditionally, it’s baby blue for boys, but knowing this mother-to-be better than anyone else, a  girly- girl  who loves all things classy, chic, and non-traditional, baby blue was out. My objective was to keep it feminine for her  but still fitting for a boy baby shower.  I  chose a vintage/classy style “Little Man Mustache” theme with turquoise and tea green accented with white, black, and beige

Tissue Pom Poms are adorable bursts of colorful fluff which bring whimsical fun to any event, from birthday parties to baby showers to wedding receptions.  Here we used our tea green tissue pom-poms and added some homemade turquoise and white tissue poms which doubled as nursery decor after the event.

Our burlap banner can be customized to fit any occasion or even personalized to decorate any room in the home. Here I used a 8 x 10 in. Triangle Jute Banner 12 piece,a 4 inch stencil, a foam brush, and black acrylic paint to create this look. This banner features 12 individual pennants with twine which makes customizing the spacing and placement of the letters a cinch.

White 60X102 inch tablecloths for a halfway drape on our 6 foot banquet tables, allows guests to easily move to & from the tables. The addition of  turquoise organza runners & sashes, tea green organza runners and sashes with clear glass vases (coming soon) and white snapdragons, white and green mums, and turquoise and green plates with bowtie napkins.

Here I made the bowties out of paper napkins, but cloth napkins work great too. I cut small pieces of ribbon and attached velcro dots so they could be easily opened and re-closed.

Here I used candy jars two ways: one for candy and one for fruit skewers. With so many sizes and shapes of our glass jars, (coming soon!) you can have an array of candy colored to fit your scheme, or you can fill them with popcorn, pretzels, or even fruit!

I created a favor using homemade sugar scrub, customized labels, mason jars, and ribbon.

Rather than ordering (or baking) a cake, I chose to bake cupcakes. I love how compact, easy to eat, easy to make, and fun to decorate cupcakes are- not to mention, tantalizing!  I customized the cupcake pics using bamboo pics and sticky labels on each side.  Rather than having to cut and serve cake, guests just grab and go- no plates and forks needed!
