The Best Baby Shower Themes for BoysPregnancy
Her special baby shower day is approaching and you are stressing out about every detail. You want it to be perfect. Not to worry, you have this under control. First things first, the occasion calls for a standout theme, one that will have the woman of the hour and her guests in awe. In order to help you reach your end goal, we are sharing creative decoration ideas, yummy food options and fun games for you to check off your long list of duties.
Welcome to the Jungle
Boast baby’s King of the Jungle status by celebrating him and his mama with a jungle party.
To make this safari theme convincing, make sure to decorate the party with lots of greenery. We are talking wild plants, hanging leaves and bouquets of flowers. Drape banners with baby zoo animal cutouts and hang some bananas to make it look a tad more on the wild side. Green, brown, yellow and orange balloons will add that last touch you need.
Try labelling the drinks as jungle juice or the chocolate fondue as mud bath. One things for certain, you are going to need an assortment of exotic fruits and vegetables.
No baby shower is complete without a set of fun and creative games for guests to play. Have guests undo word scrabbles of different animals or match the parent animal name to the baby animal name. It’s harder than it sounds!
You Are My Superhero
It is only natural that supermom would have a lil’ superhero of her own. This theme brings out the hero in everyone making it the perfect baby shower theme.
This one demands a major pop of colour. If you want to stick to the traditional superhero colour scheme, make sure the decorations are red, yellow and blue. You can also decide to pick one specific hero or include a bunch (ex. Superman, Captain America or all Marvel superheroes). The decision is all yours. Psst… Looking for a cute little accent décor? Use mini self-standing easels and signs in comic book style design. BOOM!
Pick up some yummy treats in the shape of little superhero outfits and logos and a bunch of colourful candies.
Set up a name-that-superhero game where players will have to match super power to superhero and/or superhero to secret identity. If mama is a comic book fan, she will love you forever and ever!
Cowboy in the Wild West
Saddle up and get ready to throw a country-inspired baby shower mom-to-be is sure to adore.
Play with plaid and cow print to make the theme come alive. This rustic route for décor should entail scattered hay, bandanas and a banner that reads It’s a cowboy! How adorable would that be?
Plan for a cake in the shape of a cowboy. Meanwhile, offer a selection of sweet treats decorated as cowboy hats and boots and sheriff’s badges. These are the easiest to replicate and they make all the difference!
Mix it up in this area. Have fun with it. Come up with a game idea that involves throwing a lasso around specific objects (ex. a pony). You can also fill a cowboy hat with a bunch of hay and have guests search for a small and thin object (not a needle please).
Stuck in Outer Space
Oh, have we got an out-of-this-world theme for you!
Select all things outer space. This means go heavy on the star, planet and spaceship decorations. Use a darker backdrop, either black or navy blue, to set a galaxy mood but keep in mind that you should include brighter décor, either yellow or orange, to represent the solar system.
On this front, you should set your sights on a tasty sweet table that includes cupcakes sprinkled with little edible stars and a rocket ship or astronaut-frosted cake. The rest of the detail is all empty space… how fitting!
Have guests engage in games that are more challenging, such as naming the planets or recreating rocket ships or the solar system from plastic bottles, food dye, cardboard and Styrofoam.
In the Name of Sports
Pick a theme that you are sure will be a slam-dunk or homerun. Are you thinking what we’re thinking?
Picture this, a banner that reads Welcome to the team and tiny baby sports uniforms hanging on the wall. Separate tables, each boasting different sports team colours. It’s a yes from us.
You are going to want to decorate the food according to whether you focus on a specific sport or combine them all. Once you have nipped that decision in the bud, then you are ready to get into details. Pro tip: Offer concession stand options on the menu, including hot dogs, fries and hamburgers.
Each table should have to come up with a team name, in the spirit of teamwork. Also, set up a photo station where guests can take photos of themselves signing their autographs on specific objects. These would make for adorable keepsakes for mom after baby is born.
