When planning for the new little bundle of joy in your life, the inevitable shower or gender reveal party will be on the agenda. I love throwing a baby shower with cute theme. Check out these great ideas for baby shower boy themes.  

Planning Basics

When planning your next baby shower, there are a few areas to keep in mind when decorating to a theme. 

  • Invitations should portray the theme of the party
  • The food table should have a table cloth and centerpieces that goes with the decor
  • There should be an area for gifts to be collected and opened
  • I prefer to have a separate table for the cake or dessert option that is also boasting the theme of choice. 
  • Remember to add height to the area with balloons or streamers that hang from the ceiling or entry ways.
  • I love a photo booth. This is by no means a requirement, but it makes for wonderful memories and a great addition to the baby shower for boy theme. 

Baby Shower Boy Themes

Welcome to my list of baby shower boy themes. These can, of course, be used for baby showers for girls, if you are inclined, or for gender reveal parties. I am a big fan of these cute and trendy decorating ideas.
