Babies are always an exciting time for a new family, but there is one person who might feel left out of the celebration.
Mom will be overjoyed to see her baby boy, but she may feel a little bit less unique than before if no one takes the time to acknowledge her.
Creative Boy Baby Shower Decorations can be used as the focal point of your party decorating so that mom knows how important she is and how much you cherish her.
Paper Lantern Decorations
This doesn’t necessarily sound incredibly exciting on the first read, but look at these Decorative Paper Lanterns.
They are beautiful, and to be honest; I would probably put these up for a baby shower and never take them down again.
If you want to steer clear of overly ornate decorations, then these are a great idea. Against an otherwise neutral room, these would add a nice little pop of colour and would be especially useful in pink or blue, depending on the gender of the baby if you know it.
You could make these in any size you wanted to, and even use mixes of different colors if you wanted to. I think along with other more minimal decorations, these would look fantastic above a buffet table as the main attraction.
If you can’t make something decorative entirely out of diapers for a baby shower, then when else can you?
This Diaper Wreath is a bit of fun and, if you don’t crumple them too much, the mother-to-be can even keep the diapers for her little arrival.
It’s straightforward to make and could probably even be pulled together on the morning of the shower if you were running a little bit last-minute.
You could add extra decorations onto it too, which I think would make it look that bit more personal. In this example, they have made a ‘Welcome Baby’ ribbon, but you could go even further by adding baby shoes or socks to the wreath, attaching them with some wire or a hot glue gun.
I am embarrassed to admit how long it took me to understand why I kept seeing rain or umbrella-themed decorations when I scroll through some decoration ideas.
Of course, it alludes to the term baby ‘shower,’ and I must say once I discovered the pun, I liked it rather a lot.
There are so few materials involved in making this Showering Umbrella, and you could even use your umbrella as it won’t get damaged in the process.
I think it would be a lot of fun to take inspiration from this and make it the theme of the celebration, with little cocktail umbrellas in the drinks and clouds hanging from the walls.
Baby shower or not, I will most definitely be trying out this DIY. This Floral Balloon looks so incredibly natural and pretty, and I can imagine that any woman would love it.
I am sure that you could use natural flowers, but by using fake ones as they do here, you ensure that the balloon will last longer, and the pregnant mother can even take it home to keep as a memoir of the day.
It will look stunning to have a row of these along the wall, or even better scattered around a garden if you are lucky enough to have conditions that allow you to have the party outside.
If you want to make it more themed, you could use blue flowers to celebrate a baby boy.
Oh Baby Tablecloth
A printed or patterned tablecloth is a great way to bring a bit of colour and life to a table. Whether you use this Oh Baby Tablecloth in the space where you would have food or place gifts, I think it would look great.
You don’t need to be a sewing genius to tackle this DIY, and if you use the same coloured thread as felt, no one will see if your lines go a little wonky.
I like that they have provided a template for the letters used in this example because I am a big fan of the fonts, but of course, you could use any lettering you’d like.
With that said, you could go even further in your customization by using different words and colours, and you could even add the baby’s name.
My mom and granny are both exceptional at sewing. They have been making costumes and adjusting clothes for me for as long as I can remember.
However, I think the sewing gene has skipped a generation with me because I am pretty hopeless at it.
That is one of the reasons why I love this No-Sew Bunting, aside from the fact that it looks beautiful, of course.
Bunting is a great way to decorate for any occasion, as it is simple but still effective. Make sure to think about who you are throwing the party for, their favourite colours and styles.
Another lovely thing about this bunting is that the mother-to-be could take it home after the baby shower and hang it in the baby’s nursery.
Baby Drinking Bottles
The idea to use Baby Drinking Bottles for all the guests at the baby shower is a fun one. It could also be hilarious to drag out the ‘adult baby’ theme by having pacifier-shaped lollypops, for example, or giving guests diapers to wear over their clothes.
It’s little touches like this that make the shower baby-themed and fun for all the guests at the same time.
You could have a lot of fun trying out the different cocktail and mocktail recipes to put into the bottles, making them match the gender of the baby, or having a mix of blue and pink if you don’t yet know it.
You can decorate the bottles with little labels and ribbons, just like they have in this example.
‘Ready to Pop’ Station
If you are having an afternoon baby shower, or maybe a more informal one, you might not be wanting to make bucket loads of food or proper meals.
In that case, something like this ‘Ready to Pop’ Station is an excellent idea.
Fill the table with fizzy pop and popcorn, equipped with pretty cups and popcorn boxes as well, of course. Make sure to have a ‘Ready to Pop’ sign hanging above to make the most of the pun, and decorate with fun coloured balloons.
Like in this example, it’s a lovely idea to have little bowls of toppings that guests can add to their popcorn, like chocolate chips, sprinkles, or gummy bears.
Guess the Birthday
To get a little bit of friendly competition rolling during the shower, it’s always a fun idea to have a ‘Guess the Birthday’ game on the go.
I love the look of this particular one; it’s very effective with the colours against the black but still easy to put together, being made up of sticky notes.
I was at the baby shower recently; they had a whole range of ‘guess the…’ games on the go, which was a lot of fun.
We were able to put forward our guesses for the weight, name, and even time of birth. Make sure to have some fun minor prizes up for grabs too.
This Diaper Cake is like a decoration and a gift all in one. Instead of just gifting packets of nappies, why not arrange them as a cake and use it as a centrepiece for the baby shower table.
It is all assembled with ribbon and rubber bands, so no glue will render the diapers unusable. You could let your creative juices run free with this DIY.
The base ‘cake’ is so simple, so you could go as over the top as you wanted with the decorations. You could make them baby-themed with gender-appropriate ribbons and little shoes, or even entirely not baby-themed, with flowers and foliage.
Although it isn’t precisely travelling, having a baby is the beginning of one big adventure, and I think this Chalkboard Globe is a lovely way of symbolizing that.
You can buy these in stores, but it is a kinder gesture to make it yourself and probably far cheaper.
On the day of the shower, you could have it on display, with chalks available for guests to write messages of well-wishing to the new baby.
After that, though, it is something that the new family will be able to keep forever, to document travels on and to plan for their next adventures.
These are potentially the prettiest balloons that I have ever seen, and I am so desperate for one of my friends to have a baby now so that I can fill a room with them.
The whole theme used in this example is stunning, as a matter of fact, with the soft pastel colours mixing so well together without being too in-your-face.
These Watercolor Balloons are simple to make, and if you stick to a colour scheme when buying paints, you can’t mix and mix different colours.
If the pregnant mom is a fan of anything aesthetically pleasing, then there is no doubt that she will love these, and your hard work will probably be all over Instagram within the hour.
There are so many different Creative Boy Baby Shower Decorations that you could incorporate into the day when it comes down to it.
However, I hope this post has given you a few ideas for how to go about making things just a little bit more personal and unique.
Remember though: Creative Boy Baby Shower Decorations should always be fun! We want everyone who attends the shower to have an enjoyable time, which is why we’ve included some of our favourite games in this article, too – like Guess The Birthday or Diaper Cake.
These will undoubtedly help get guests involved and enjoy themselves on what can often be such a nerve-wracking occasion.
Creative Boy Baby Shower Decorations are a great way of getting the family involved in planning too. There is no right or wrong way to go about it, so get creative and have some fun!
