Ahoy! It's a Boy Baby Shower Ideas


This past weekend we celebrated my dear friend Allie and her upcoming baby boy with a small intimate baby shower. Allie loves the beach so I wanted to give her a nautical theme and came up with the idea of Ahoy! It’s a boy! I got together with Shindigz and was able to put together some great products to go along with the theme.

I made a custom yard sign to match the theme which greeted guests as they walked up the walkway. A small balloon garland across the gate was a nice touch to add a pop of color. Once around back they were entertained in a cozy patio space full of nautical touches. The party was later in the afternoon so I kept the food as appetizers only and some sweet treats of course. The food was displayed on a custom table top it which allows so many different custom options. I wanted the saying to stand out so I spaced the food out all around the table to frame it. I served bacon wrapped sausages and a delicious tomato burrata salad which also tied into the party colors I was using. Also served up was a refreshing blueberry and strawberry salad with blue cheese crumbles and a vinaigrette dressing. An ice cold, blueberry pomegranate punch was a refreshing touch for the hot afternoon.

The sweets table was kept simple with store bought desserts. A mini cake from the bakery section dressed up with blueberries and a sailboat topper added such a cute touch. I sprinkled brown sugar around the bottom to give it the look of sand which added another element. You could even add a few seashells to make it fit the theme even more. Some vanilla pudding topped with blueberries and macadamia cookies were also out for display.

I set the dining table for six using a blue velvet tablecloth and red chairs. The red chairs were a nice pop of color and pulled from the colors of the large 3D letters that spelled out AHOY which was right behind the table. A seashell runner, and netter bottles made for a simple yet elegant centerpiece. Wood grain chargers brought in some of the rustic feel and blue napkins helped brighten up the place settings. I used silverware pouches to keep all the utensils together. It was a beautiful table scape with a ship wheel standee as the backdrop.

The last area I set up with the photo booth area. I used a large cardboard backdrop that I customized with the theme saying. That made for some great photos and I used some custom speech bubbles as props along with some shell necklaces and sailor hat. The mama to be’s chair was right next to the photo booth to give her a place to sit and still be in the photos as well. This is where she sat to open gifts also. It was a beautiful intimate shower for a few of our closest friends that Allie will never forget.
