A Guide to Baby Shower Themes For Boys
Unique baby shower themes for boys are awesome but the themes that have been around for some time are just as special and amazing.
As long as the theme is something the mom-to-be loves you are good to go.
You can always host the baby shower with a little twist: combine themes, pick unexpected colors or a little different focus.
Let’s use safari theme as an example. Instead of filling the baby shower venue with baby safari animals you could decorate with safari vehicles and safari gear such as safari hats, binoculars, maps, and guidebooks.
Use ideas from safari countries (Kenya, Botswana, Tanzania…) when choosing centerpieces and backdrops. It would be a fun unique baby shower theme.
More safari theme ideas with safari animals later in this article.
Have fun going through this list of themes! Many of the baby shower theme ideas presented here are also great for a gender neutral baby shower.
