A Nautical Baby Boy Shower

This past weekend I helped co-host a baby shower for our friend Alyssa who is about to have her first baby.  A little boy.  So we decided a nautical theme was in order.  It's so popular right now.  With three of us planning, it came together nicely.  We had the perfect weather for a sunny - spring- Sunday afternoon baby shower.  

We choose our colours as navy, grey and white.  I focused on decorations.  A few easy details helped pull the theme together. 

I used two recycled tin cans and wrapped thick twine around to make vases.  Seashells, a white seagull and white flowers from our gardens put the final touches on the decor.  I even found an anchor cookie cutter at a local cake decorating store.  Each guest was able to take an anchor sugar cookie home with them.  

We had a few activities for the guests to participate in.  The guests were asked to sign a baby book, 'Oh the Places You Will Go" as the guest book.  A keepsake for sure.  Newborn diapers were set out and each guests was asked to write a message to the new parents for those exhausting late night diaper changes.  Hopefully it will bring a smile to their faces at 3am in the morning.  Lastly, we had the guests write down their favourite baby items they received/use or have given to a new mother.  This list of items will hopefully be helpful as they stock up on all their baby items.  

Overall, it was a nice afternoon showering the mommy to be and her baby boy.  It's only a matter of weeks will we get to meet him.
