17 Boy Baby Shower Themes to Happily Welcome Your Newborn

Find some boy baby shower themes to welcome your new baby!

Did you know that baby showers are a fairly modern idea?

Around 1937, etiquette books started referring to “stork showers” as a way to celebrate the soon-to-be arrival of a newborn.

It didn’t take long for these parties to become a tradition and it’s almost always assumed that when you are pregnant, you will be having a baby shower!

While you don’t have to burn yourself out planning an extravagant affair, it’s nice to organize a memorable gathering to celebrate the arrival of your baby boy.

To get you started, here’s a quick rundown of how to plan a baby shower along with 17 adorable boy baby shower themes you’re sure to love!

Planning a Baby Shower

While choosing the right theme for your boy baby shower is important, there are other steps involved in planning this party.

First of all, you have to decide when you want to have your baby shower. For most parents, having the shower around 4-6 weeks before the due date works out well – it gives them lots of time to figure out what they still need for the baby.

Second, you have to figure out who to invite.

As a general rule, you should invite your closest friends and relatives (people that are most likely to be involved in your baby’s life or who want to celebrate the new baby).

Depending on your preferences, you can invite just women or men too.

Even fathers-to-be and their friends are getting in on the fun of baby showers!

Third, it’s helpful to set up a baby registry so that your guests know what you need.

Instead of receiving five bottle warmers, your guests will be able to help you stock up before the baby arrives.

Be sure to include your registry information in your invitations!

Lastly, it’s time to choose a boy baby shower theme!

Then you can plan out food, activities, and favors to make this occasion super special.

To get you started, here are some amazing themes you should consider to happily welcome your baby boy.
