If you are looking for baby shower ideas for a little boy, you are going to love this nautical theme submitted by Khloe of KG Style Inc.
Khloe said about the party planning: I wanted to do something a bit different and whilst watching Popeye I came up with the idea of a nautical theme. I covered the tables in white and blue linen and decorated with nautical theme items such as lanterns, sea shells, sand and anchors. I completed the look with some vintage images and nautical theme napkins and party favours. I loved designing the party and the mum to be had a wonderful time”.
Invitations give guests an insight into the party theme and prepare them for what is to come. The invitation chosen for this party set the nautical theme perfectly with ‘Ahoy It’s A Boy’ used in the shape of an anchor, and the colours continued throughout the rest of the party decoration.
Nautical Theme Party Decoration Ideas:
The attention to detail to the party decoration is evident . Blue and white tones were used as the main colours, together with a touch of beige and red. Nautical theme party decoration consisted of seashells, sand, anchors, lanterns, star fishes and a sailboat. The party decoration looked amazing and each table was decorated with a different piece of nautical decor to really create the wow factor.
The babies onesie hanging on the wall leaves you in no doubt that the celebration is for a baby shower. Khloe placed a custom image on the onesie of an anchor together with the baby’s due date.
For the mother to be, Khloe had even arranged a special chair. Khloe said “I covered the chair with white and blue linen and made a cushion with the same custom image I had used on the babies onesie which I hung on the wall. I wanted the decoration to all tie in together and this worked perfectly”.
Baby Shower Party Food Ideas:
The stand out feature at a party is normally the cake and this party was no different, except for the fact that there was not one cake, but three!
Khloe said “The main cake table was designed with a cake trio. I wanted the cakes to be the main attraction, so I placed very few items on the table”. Khloe designed the cakes, and the mother to be had the cakes made at her favourite Dominican bakery. They certainly achieved the goal of being a stand out feature!
The party favours given to guests were also part of the party decoration. Onesie cookie cutters were provided together with the sand jars which were placed on each table. The party favour box’s were completed with blue and white stripes and an anchor sticker.
Baby Shower Party Game Ideas:
Baby Shower’s are a great chance to get your guests involved in some games. Two games were played at this party, ‘The Poop’ and the ‘Belly Guess”.
The poop, consists of melting chocolate into nappies and asking guests to guess which chocolate bar is in each nappy. You can tell the real chocoholics by how far they press their nose into the nappy!
For the belly guess, guests are asked to guess how many inches they think the mother to be’s belly is.
The best party games are those that allow guests to have some pure and simple fun!
If you are looking for an idea for a boy’s baby shower, I hope this nautical theme has given you some inspiration.
