Easy DIY Your Baby Boy Shower and save $$$
If you're organizing a shower, you don't have to spend a fortune like celebs! Here's some great ideas for you and that special bundle of joy !
Polo Mint Pacifier
1) Polo Mint Pacifier
Lifesaver pacifiers are adorable for a little man shower. They can be used for a girl too if you switch the blue jelly bean for a pink one. Simply use icing to hold together.
2) Hershey Reveal
Hershey bar favors are great for baby boy shower. Simple get some blue paper and leave the 'he' exposed. You could also color HE in blue instead of wrapping. Finish with a cute blue bow.
Bow Tie Napkins with Utensils
3) Bow Tie Napkins with Utensils
Dress up each place setting with a fun flatware wrap idea using blue napkins and some ribbon. Gather napkin like a bow tie place in front of utensils and secure with a colorful ribbon.
Bow Tie Cookies
4) Bow Tie Cookies
You'll need a batch of sugar cookies for these cuties and lots of blue icing !

5) Blanket Cupcakes
A batch of chocolate cupcakes is needed here with some frosting in blue and white.
6) Sparkling Punch
How cute is the duck! Use sprite with a few drops of blue food coloring or blue hawaiian punch.
Ombré Balloon Backdrop
7) Ombré Balloon Backdrop
This is so trendy and so simple, just get balloons in lots of shades of blue. If you are feeling extra creative you could paint a paper tablecloth to match.
8) Dumbo Cake
A childhood classic and such a sweet cake idea.
Blue & Lemons Punch
9) Blue & Lemons Punch
Blue kool-aid with 7up and lemons makes up this awesome punch.

Do Not Open Until
10) Do Not Open Until
Cute for pics and very easy, just get a big blue bow and make a tag with the due date. Great to have in babys first photo album!
11) Lollipop Favors
Buy some lollypops as a Wilton favor kit from Party City and pop on top of an anti bac hand wash. These are cute favors that people would actually use!
Strawberry Sports Balls
12) Strawberry Sports Balls
Dip strawberries in chocolate and use a toothpick for the details. You could of course make blue stripes on the strawberries too.
Chocolate Dipped Pretzels
13) Chocolate Dipped Pretzels
Dip pretzels in white chocolate and blue sprinkles. Also it is a good idea for a Frozen Birthday Party.
Champagne Flute Cupcakes with Sixlets
14) Champagne Flute Cupcakes with Sixlets
Purchase plastic champagne flutes and add cupcakes for a party favor/dessert all in one!
Cake Pops Galore
15) Cake Pops Galore
Extend your theme into the food and dip cookies and cakes in blue icing.

Ombré Themed Food
16) Ombré Themed Food
Wouldn't the ombré balloon backdrop look great with these ideas?
Add Ties to Mason Jars
17) Add Ties to Mason Jars
Upcycle old scraps of fabric and make sweet ties to go around mason jars which can be filled with anything you like to use as party favors.
18) Mustache Banner
This is so simple to make and yet looks so effective! All you need is string and card and cut out the mustache and tie shapes.
Baby It's Cold Outside
19) Baby It's Cold Outside
This is cute for a Winter Baby Shower. Who doesn't love a hot chocolate and cookie bar? Blue and brown go so nicely together.
Personalized Burlap Door Wreath
20) Personalized Burlap Door Wreath
Hang this on his bedroom door when the party is over! You'll need 1 metal wreath form
1-2 packages 4 inch burlap and decorations.
Once in a Blue Moon
21) Once in a Blue Moon
Add pretty details like moons and stars to the traditional blue theme for a bit of spice. The book “The Magic Blanket” is tucked in an adorable wooden wagon complete with a teddy bear!
22) Mustache Cake
This would wok great with the mustache banner! You just need to make a plane chocolate cake and cut in half in the shapes shown. You could ice and sprinkle it too for more fun.
Treat Cup Booties
23) Treat Cup Booties
These are so adorable and work for more than just baby showers. They could be turned into witches shoes for Halloween or Elf shoes for Christmas.
Polka Dots & Stripes Cake
24) Polka Dots & Stripes Cake
A blue and green cake with the message boy oh boy would be the perfect center piece for the party.
