Before you know it, your friend’s home will be filled with snips and snails and puppy dog tails – items certain to indicate a little boy lives there!But before he starts chasing puppies, give him and his mother a fun-filled It’s a Boy baby shower.
The most obvious color choice for your shower decorating is blue – but don’t discount bright red, green or purple – primary colors make a bold statement and add a masculine feel to the shower.If you do decorate in blue, choose varying shades to add depth and variety.
When inviting guests to the shower, include details about where mom is registered so they can shop accordingly.Depending on the time of day your shower is held, you may want to serve dessert only, a light lunch or a full meal.Check with your guest of honor for any recent cravings and serve some of her favorites.You may also want to offer vegetarian choices or sugar-free desserts for guests with special dietary needs.
Pull the shower together with It’s A Boy baby shower games and table centerpieces.Along with the mother-to-be, honor any older siblings-to-be by giving them a special game to host, decorating a chair just for them, or having a special gift to present to them as mom opens all the baby gifts.
Baby Gifts & Gift Baskets offers a number of baby shower favors, personalized baby boy gifts and shower centerpieces designed to complement a fun “It’s A Boy” shower – we’ll explore them in posts to follow.
