I love the simplicity of pairing white tablecloths with burlap. They create a neutral look, so any color goes great with them. The baby blue gets all the attention in this picture, and the different textures of the glass, burlap and cotton are a great way to add interest to the decor.
Mason jars are so easy to find and decorate so this fabulous centerpiece doesn’t have to be overwhelming to create.
2. Teddy Bears
Look no further if you chose a teddy bear theme for the shower you’re throwing. Pair cute bears with blue and white balloons and the decoration will be perfect.
If you are looking for a way to make the bowtie napkins, here’s a picture tutorial for you:

All things vintage come together in this super chic baby shower. Even if you don’t have all the props to recreate this fun idea, there are many affordable elements you can pick to include at your event.
I love buying wooden crates at Hobby Lobby, Marshall’s or Target. You can buy vintage marquee letters from various places, but here’s a link to buy them on Amazon.
4. Little Pumpkin

Isn’t this idea the cutest?
It goes especially well with a fall baby shower. During that time of the year, there’s no shortage of pumpkins, pumpkins spice and fall colored decorations. Candy topped cookies and color coordinated onesies complete the orange, yellow and blue decor.
There’s a pie bar at this party, where guest can sample many different flavors of pies. Click the images to shop.
5. Golden Books

It’s the perfect time to start baby’s classic book collection on his baby shower. All the books purchased for the decor will be cherished for years to come. Call me crazy, but I’m super picky about kids’ books so I would specify what books to buy.
6. Elephants In The Rain

Baby blue elephants in the rain are the theme for this cute baby shower. I love that the balloons are the clouds above the raindrop garland. It’s a literal shower…get it? Don’t forget to display baby’s name and expected date of arrival on a chalkboard sign.
7. Newspaper Theme

This is such a unique idea! This baby shower set up is for celebrating twins, but it can be easily adapted for a single baby.

Baby boy starts with b, plus, you can play a game on words with “mama-to-bee”. Yellow is a cheerful color that will brighten any party. I love fresh flowers for a simple decoration and they go perfectly with the bee theme as well.
11. Nautical Baby Boy Baby Shower

The classic nautical theme is always a win. You don’t necessarily have to buy all these items for the decor to look cute. It’s okay to use the pictures as inspiration and be creative with the execution.

Baby turtles are one of the most adorable tiny animals ever. This baby shower is perfect for giving Franklin books to the soon-to-be-born baby boy.
Plus, the last few weeks of pregnancy sure seems to go by just as slow as a turtle’s crawl.
14. Royal Baby Boy

Royal blue, gold and crowns? Celebrate your little prince like any royal would. Well, you probably won’t be flying to New York on a private plane and have a star-studded shower like Meghan Markle, but the decor can still be fancy.
15. Star Wars Baby
Star Wars loving parents rejoice, there’s hope for your little Jedi to be celebrated in proper style. May the force be with you during delivery and after.
16. Under Construction

What could be more fitting than an “under construction” theme for a boy baby shower? The yellow caution tapes, mini trucks and tool-shaped cookies complete the scene. Some of the decor pieces could be given to the soon-to-be-born baby as toys.

There’s no shortage of adventures with a little boy around. It’s only fitting to celebrate his arrival with s’mores cupcakes and camping snacks.
