One of the most popular boy-themed baby showers is the “Ahoy It’s a Boy” theme. Think preppy meets nautical with a Ralph Lauren twist. We used classic colors in navy and red, and I like popping in powder blue and yellow accents.
I love using vintage pieces I have found at flea markets or have around the house. When designing a party, I like creating outdoor living spaces with what I already own and then accenting with specific decorations in my theme.
The nautical rope and a metal lantern spruce up the dessert table and can be used for baby room decor later. “Lifesaver donuts” are a fun treat to serve in place of a cake. Name desserts, drinks and food in fun nautical names to match the sailboat theme. Have fun with your theme!
Use striped treat bags for guests to take home leftover desserts and mini gable boxes for a fun little to-go favor. We included mini cork stopped bottles with a message from the mommy-to-be in the gable boxes.
Create intimate little sitting areas where friends can sit and chat by pulling up some chairs and ottomans in clusters. I used some outdoor pillows I had, a tray to put drinks down and a hand painted sea foam art print that will go into the baby’s room later.
So who is ready to set sail on a sweet nautical themed baby shower this year?
