From royal Princes to adorable elephants and creative woodlands, we’ve seen it all! You can learn more about our baby shower venue here, including our rooms for hire, catering and we can even host an outdoor baby shower with a finger buffet or BBQ. We have hosted many successful baby showers in our time and have seen the most unique, creative and very best baby shower themes for boys.
Baby Shower Decoration Ideas for a Boy
Choosing a theme can be tough – especially if you are organising a baby shower for your friend or family member! You will want everything to be perfect when you celebrate the newest chapter of a loved one’s life. So, where do you start in choosing a baby shower theme for boys?
I’m sure the colour blue is just popping out at you when searching for decorations online, but if you want something a bit less traditional, then yellow is also a fantastic colour to incorporate into your baby shower theme for a boy.
Baby Shower Themes for Boys
So, here we go, our top 12 baby shower themes for boys that we just absolutely love!
1. Blue Elephant Baby Shower
Elephants are a popular baby shower theme idea for boys and we can understand why – they’re absolutely adorable. Mix this cute baby shower theme with a splash of blue and you have the perfect combination. Elephant baby shower decorations are cheap and affordable from online stores such as Amazon and Etsy but you can always give yourself a challenge with a bit of DIY.
Elephant tableware and accessories is a must but why not get creative and make an elephant baby shower cake or cupcakes. The expecting mother will adore this baby shower theme for boys and is the perfect idea that is affordable and can be kept to budget.

2. Royal Prince
Every little boy is born a Prince, so what’s a more fitting baby shower theme for a boy than a Royal Prince-themed party? Of course, this means you’ll be on the hunt for crowns, and lots of them! We’re talking crown cake toppers, crown party hats and favours and even crown-shaped cookies!
The colour theme? GOLD! We will want to see sparkles and glitter and lots of gold. Mix this with either a splash of blue or purple (if you want to be extra royal) and you’re sorted.
This is another classic and classy baby shower theme for boys and will leave your guests feeling like royalty themselves. Decorations can be kept simple yet elegant but we always find a blue and gold balloon garland that will add an extra touch of glam to your baby shower.

3. Sweet Dreams
Another adorable baby shower theme for boys is a sweet dreams theme. Celebrate the arrival of a new baby boy with this lullaby-themed shower.
Twinkling fairy lights, soft colours, stars and moons are what makes this theme so precious, and with a name like sweet dreams, we can expect to see lots of sweet treats and gifts to match. Moon and star-shaped cookies, blue cloud-like cotton candy and pastel-coloured cupcakes will go perfectly.
This lovely baby shower theme just shouts happiness and calmness. You can even get creative and make personalised sweet bags that the guests can take home with them as an extra touch. The expecting mum and guests alike will absolutely love this theme and it’s the ideal way to welcome a new life into this world. Go all out by getting a hilarious diaper cake for the occasion!

4. Little Man
Proudly celebrate the soon arrival of your little man with a little man themed baby shower party. This great and modern theme should see lots of bow ties and moustaches added to the décor and decorations, as well as a complementary colour (we suggest blue, yellow or green). You can get fun and creative with the decorations and add moustaches to drinking straws which will leave everyone laughing!
This awesome theme brings a bit of fun to the table and you can celebrate getting ready to welcome the bun in your oven into the world. This is a popular theme that we have seen time and time again at our baby shower venue and every time it is a huge success!

5. Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Similar to our sweet dreams theme, but with an added twinkle. Creating a star themed baby shower is a great way to surprise the expecting mother. Choose a white and pastel blue colour scheme with a splash of gold to give it that magical twinkle.
You can create a brilliant cloud backdrop by buying a white balloon arch along with gold glittery star decorations. Of course, there is also no question about what the party favours should be – stars. Star-shaped cookies and not forgetting the tasty chocolatey treat Magic Stars.
Star theme baby boy shower decorations are often affordable, places like Etsy has some super cute decorations you can purchase including a twinkle twinkle little star balloon set and adorable personalised star invitations that completely set the stage.

6. Nautical Themed
Ahoy matey! Get ready to welcome the newest member of the captain’s crew to the team with fabulous nautical baby showers for a baby boy. We’re expecting blue and white stripes, wooden anchors, sailor hats and a rubber ducky to be top of this ship-themed party list.
The baby shower cake for boys can be decorated with a swirl like frosting, giving the illusion of waves! Cake pops always go down a treat too and is something guests will love.
If you want to give the mum to be and her bump a gift to remember then a personalised printed top with the caption ‘Ahoy, it’s a boy!’ will go down a treat. Another cheap and cheerful food idea? Croissants with googly eyes look suspiciously like crabs – crabwiches if you must.

7. Lego Construction
It is more or less inevitable that your baby boy will grow up loving the classic children favourite, Lego bricks. So what better way to throw a baby shower than by throwing a Lego construction themed party? You can get uber creative with this one and get a baby shower cake with Lego being incorporated into it, cookies and sweets with Lego men on and you can even give away party favours at the end filled with Lego bricks. The table decorated with lego men will make a cute feature.
If you are allowing children at your baby shower, then having a Lego building station is a great idea to keep the kids entertained whilst the adults can sit and eat and chatter away. Of course, this is a super colourful event, with the classic red, yellow, green and blue making a prominent appearance.

8. Jungle Mania
Animal themes are always a winner when looking for baby shower themes for boys, be that jungle or safari. We’re expecting to see lots of green party decor at this event! With plants, monkeys and teddy bears.
A brilliant idea is to get framed pictures of all your favourite jungle animals, which can then be used in your little one’s bedroom when he arrives. Etsy sells some really awesome decorations that don’t cost the moon. This includes safari jungle animal prints and a tropical baby shower welcome sign!
This baby shower theme for boys is absolutely perfect for the summer, where you can host a party outside. Our venue is situated around 11 acres of stunning greenery, so it’s the perfect place to host this theme!

9. Little Pumpkin
Now, this is a seasonal baby shower theme, however, it is one of our favourites! If your baby shower is near Halloween, then a little pumpkin party is adorable. Carved out pumpkins make excellent flower vases, which creates an affordable, yet pretty table centrepiece. Orange is the standout colour and mini pumpkins make for great decorations!
You can also get creative with sweet treats – pretzels covered in orange chocolate look a lot like pumpkins and sticky toffee apples are a great way of staying within this seasonal theme. You can also sprinkle the table with autumn colours and leaves to give the décor an extra pop.

10. Woodland Animals
A woodland themed baby shower is perfect for all you nature lovers and if you’re a fan of cute little forest animals. With this theme comes a rustic and chic look, with shades of brown and twigs and pinecones being used at the main decorations and centrepieces. Wooden tree stumps also make for great food a dessert riser and will perfectly complement your theme. Add a splash of greenery to this and you’re set to go.
You can easily find cute woodland cake toppers online and if you’re a chocolate fan (who isn’t?), then this woodland theme is the perfect excuse to have a gigantic tree stump chocolate cake and chocolate-covered strawberries with nuts sprinkled on the top to look like acorns.

11. Vintage Circus
Step right up! It’s a magical event that deserves a magical theme. Vintage circus baby showers are fun, colourful and offer some creative baby shower games.
With red and white tulle, vintage circus posters and light up letters, it is sure to dazzle your guests. Food is easy, with there being lots of popcorn, cotton candy and sweet circus treats being readily available. Hiring out a vintage popcorn stand will also add an extra touch to this baby shower theme.
This is perfect to host in a marquee, which will give the illusion of being in a circus tent and you can easily decorate with red and white drapes and balloons.

12. Easter Bunny
Another cute seasonal baby shower theme is Easter! Easter bunnies can be very adorable and are complimentary with pastel shades of blue, yellow, purple and green. Throw in a splash of orange of course, for the bunny’s carrots and you have a stunning palette ready to wow your guests. Etsy do lots of bunny ear cupcake toppers that will look great on the dessert table.
As a party favour, you can give your guests a mini straw basket filled with chocolate eggs. This is a perfect theme if you are after a more neutral theme and want to steer away from the traditional ‘It’s a boy!’ themes.
Do I need a boys baby shower theme?
Absolutely not! Although boys baby shower themes can be a fun way to decorate your event, a theme isn’t a must-have. For a successful baby shower, all you need is your nearest and dearest around you. Baby showers are about celebrating the upcoming arrival of your latest family member.
Baby shower themes are a great way to help with ideas such as the food, decorations and games, but there is no need to have a set theme if it isn’t your style!
What are good colours for a boys baby shower theme?
Pretty much any colour scheme can be used for a boys baby shower theme, be that blue, pink or yellow! However, traditionally, blue is the most popular colour used in baby showers for boys.
If you want to step away from traditional baby shower colours, then green, orange and yellows are also a winner! These colours go well with a jungle theme!
Alternatively, pastel colours such as yellow will help keep the theme neutral and subtle.
