HELP! I can’t decide on a theme for the baby shower I’m hosting for my friend next month, and I need to send out invitations ASAP! I wanted to do a jungle theme, but I just found out that that’s what her sisters are doing at her family shower, so I can’t do the same thing. I haven’t been able to find anything else I really like. What adorable themes can you think of to welcome a little boy?

@GreenEyedMoon: Sports-theme? Baseball is really cute. I saw one lately where they did cupcakes with little baseball cutouts on top, and gave Baby Ruth candy bars as the favours. So cute.
Carnival? You could have lots of fun with this, and do Cracker Jack or animal cracker boxes as favours. You could also give popcorn as a favour and use the line “So-and-so is ready to pop!” or something…

Thank you both for the suggestions!
I’ve done some more research and found a few possible themes I like. Here are some cute inspiration boards/pictures I found for each one. I added a poll at the top. What’s your favorite?
1. Sleepy Time
There are more adorable photos from this amazing shower here.
3. Baby Bean

Bueller? Any other votes? I don’t think my high school statistics teacher would approve of a survey with only five votes. Apparently, that sort of sample size is not likely to show an accurate picture of the general population. Or something. I was an English major. Go away. After you vote.

@GreenEyedMoon: Please don’t do mustaches! I went to at least 5 of those parties in the past two years! It’s so overdone.
I did a retro music theme for my sister’s shower. Records and mix tapes. It was a big hit.
I did a monster theme for another friend’s shower. Totally cute.
Superheros are fun too.
But I really like your dream/night theme too!

I love the first one especially because the sigh says I Love You To The Moon And Back. I still say this to my boys now 13&11:))))))

i like the night sky idea. and i agree with the poster about the moustaches/bow ties. i’m so tired of seeing those things everywhere.
how about baby mickey mouse (or just baby disney characters in general)? i think that would be really cute!

@lilchicana: and @MexiPino: I know the moustaches are overdone, which is why I waffled on adding it as an option. On the other hand, they ARE cute, and because they’re so popular, it would be easy to find stuff to match the theme… I think the dream time theme is going to be it, though. I thought of an adorable guestbook thing: wish upon star. I would cut out a bunch of stars and have the guests write their wishes for the parents and baby on them, then assemble them into a book for the mommy-to-be.

Sailor for sure! I think it’s cute but still boyish and it’s not overdone. There’s also a lot of ocean/sailor-themed clothing available right now so if guests want to pick up an outfit, it’ll go with the theme.

I agree that the moustaches are super cute but way overdone. I threw a baby shower for my SIL last fall and did a really cute blue and green train theme.
