Baby Showers for Boys
To start your shower planning, you need to decide when to have it and whether it's going to be a surprise. Usually, showers are held in the last two months of pregnancy. If you want it to be a surprise, you will need to enlist the help of a family member (if you aren't one). They can help you find out what day would be good for the shower, who the honoree would like to have in attendance, where they are registered, and most importantly, help you get the honoree to the party without spoiling the surprise.
Now, you've set the date, it's time to send the invitations. Decide if you want this to be an all woman shower, or if you are going to invite the guys. If you decide you want the shower to be co-ed, this will probably change the types of games you decide to play. On your invitations be sure to note the date, time, and place of the shower. Include your name and number for questions or RSVPs. You can also list any shower themes or where the honoree is registered.
OK, invitations now sent, you need to decide what party games, decorations and food you will need. It helps to make a list, so you can check off items as you complete them.
The Milaholic theme can be used for boys or girls and would be an adorable Sip and See after the baby is born. The color scheme is a simple black and white with a 1 color accent. For this event we used a bright green, the same that was in the baby's nursery.
This event was a shower in the office, so each of us brought a dozen cookies, and I brought the milk in several different flavors as well as some juices and tea. I also provided some watermelon for those who can't or don't eat cookies. The rind went beautifully with the color scheme, so I left it on.
Things we printed:
Cards for Notes
Cards for Silly Quotes
Flags for Straws
Cupcake Toppers, that we slid into the cookie trays
