Baby Boy Shower
Baby Boy Shower Ideas
Frogs and snails, and puppy dog tails, that’s what little boys are made of…. apparently!
So you’re having a boy -your little buddy, pal, your man, champ, little guy, handsome devil. Don’t dare call him sweetheart, angel, princess, peanut, honey or baby, right? Of course not!
Before your newborn son is shaving and off to college, let’s get through the baby boy shower first. Some obvious themes or décor for boys include: sports – baseball, basketball, football, or soccer; fire trucks; policemen; robots; doggies; cowboys; or super heroes.
You won’t need a lot of frilly lace or dainty bows at a shower for a baby boy. You can never go wrong with anything in the color blue – and lots of it.
It’s a horrible experience for new parents to have strangers in the store refer to their little man as a precious girl. Baby boy shower gift-giving made easy – give outfits to dress the handsome boy up in blue, blue, and blue. Even if his little sleeper has footballs all over it, the well meaning fan won’t take the time to notice the boyish pattern. Give them bold blue to clue them in.
Back to shower ideas. Generally baby showers are a female-dominated event. Your mother-to-be may not have much experience raising a boy. You could center the games on boy things. Make a list of questions that pertain only to boys – perhaps how to change a boy diaper or “what will you say when your son comes up to you and tells you …”
Another idea would be to play: “what not to do to embarrass your son,” such as lick your finger then attempt to get the toothpaste off his cheek, in front of his friends. Or, shout embarrassing honey-pie comments to your son while he’s playing with his friends. You can even do a football quiz – Mom may need this information some day!
Guests who have sons will be able to help with this one. Raising a boy is not the same as raising a girl. Have fun but make it informative and fun for all shower attendees.
