The sky’s the limit when it comes to the cute factor in these airplane themed boy baby shower decorations. Fabric buntings in shades of blues and browns hung overhead definitely add a fun factor to the table featuring an adorable airplane themed diaper cake.
Diaper cakes act as a fun baby shower décor element and great shower gift. Along the same lines, the clothesline featured in this boy baby shower is full of darling baby boy onesies that coordinate with the color palette and theme of the party.
They are a great focal point and make for a great gift for the new momma-to-be! If you zoom in on the photo, you can see the darling airplane clothespins holding up the onesies! Such a darling touch.

Welcoming sweet twin boys calls for a sweet boy baby shower. Soft shades of blue and brown pair with stripes, ruffles and birdies to create this darling baby shower theme and dessert table.
While the shower celebrates boys, the feminine details like ruffles on the tablecloth, and the bunting on the cake are appreciated by the women in attendance.
Tissue poms gave a punch of simple festivity, while simple bird themed printable embellishments added a coordinated look.

One budget-friendly backdrop idea featured sheets of scrapbook paper as an easy and colorful table backdrop.

Classic meets elegant in this beautiful boy baby shower brunch. Some of our favorite baby shower décor elements include the elegant blue rose flower monogram and the installment of pretty parasols hanging from the ceiling.

7. Mustache Bash Boy Baby Shower
From The Great Scotts
When decorating for a baby shower, especially one out of doors, and held at night, do not underestimate the ambience created from the addition of twinkling lights and overhead decorations.
This Mustache bash boy baby shower features both, and the result is magical! The combination of the lights sparkling in the treetops and colorful tissue poms hanging from branches, creates an atmosphere that is festive and fun.
8. Train Themed Boy Baby Shower
From Organized Chaos
This might just be one of the most clever train themed boy baby shower food displays I’ve ever seen. Imagine a town created of food with a train chugging through via a toy train track & bridge display.
The food display winds past french toast casserole, mini quiche, fruit skewers and muffins, with stops at donuts and pastries before the train terminates at cupcake Castle—a scrumptious display of cupcakes, topped with edible icing.
9. Bun in the Oven Boy Baby Shower
From GreyGrey Designs via Spaceships and Laser Beams
This fun retro inspired bun in the oven boy baby shower features so many cute decorating ideas, including fabric buntings and darling treat displays.
But the cutest decoration idea of all is a DIY mini oven made from boxes, wooden knobs, CDs and cookie racks. Isn’t it a clever way to serve up cupcakes for the shower?
10. Robot Themed Boy Baby Shower
From Amanda Pair Photography via Life and Baby
A robot themed boy baby shower is fun and unique, which means coming up with your own decoration ideas can require some extra creativity. We love this robot inspired gift table centerpiece idea.
Three different sized blue bins, filled with diapers are arranged into a robot with the addition of paper facial features. What a fun display piece that can be gifted to the new parents-to-be, post shower.
11. Umbrella Themed Boy Baby Shower
Sprinkle the new mama-to-be with an umbrella themed boy baby shower featuring some classic decoration ideas! We just love the clusters of white tissue paper clouds hanging overhead. And how cute are the real umbrellas hanging from the ceiling?
The raindrops make for a fun visual display and were cut from cardstock and sewn together prior to hanging from the edges of the umbrellas. Cloud and raindrop paper was used to create an adorable “Baby Boy” bunting, hung from twine and clothespins.

22. You Are My Sunshine Baby Shower
From Charming Touch Parties via Spaceships and Laser Beams
Another fabulous baby shower decoration idea is to use marquee style letters to spell out a name or a greeting. You can decorate the marquee letters to coordinate with the baby shower theme, color palette and overall vibe.
The “lil sunshine” letters from this baby shower are adorable and incorporate fabric, dimensional paint and button details.
They are such a cute addition to this gender neutral baby shower.
23. A Little Lamb Baby Shower
From Partylicious via Spaceships and Laser Beams
Don’t underestimate the effects of lighting as a baby shower décor element. They can create a mood and transform a space almost effortlessly.

It’s the details that make a party. Don’t forget to add creative decoration details to your table place settings. We love how faux grass place mats and a few flowers transport guests to the great outdoors, in this bouncing baby buckaroo cowboy themed baby shower.
26. A Stunning Gender Neutral Baby Shower
From Anders Ruff Custom Designs via Spaceships and Laser Beams
Use an unexpected piece of furniture—in this case, a vintage desk—for a dessert table or beverage display. Furniture can really inspire the feel of the event and is an important décor element.
Remember to use a variety of pedestals, boxes and drawers to add charming style. This stunning gender neutral baby shower is a perfect example of how furniture can create a mood.
27. Hot Air Balloon + Elephants Baby Shower
From A Delicate Gift via Spaceships and Laser Beams
Don’t have matching linens for the tables? No problem! Make an inexpensive table runner with wrapping paper that comes in many colors and patterns. Not only is it a budget-friendly alternative to costly fabric options, it makes cleanup a cinch as you can just throw it away when the baby shower is over.
28. She’s Going to POP! Baby Shower
Think you don’t have what it takes to decorate for a baby shower? Repetition of color and form always makes a statement—even with something as simple as soup cans full of flowers.
The contemporary mom-to-be will appreciate the pop/art vibe in this “she’s ready to pop” baby shower.
29. Lil’ Peanut Baby Shower
From Sugarplum Sweets via Spaceships and Laser Beams
If you’re trying to come up with decoration ideas, here’s a tip: choose a meaningful idea and repeat it every way you can.
Here, the partnering of the “little peanut” and elephant motif was effective on food medallions, dessert cups, favor bags and décor.
Raid your craft supplies, and look for stamps, paper punches, craft paper and any supplies that you could use to create your own embellishments as seen in this adorable little peanut elephant baby shower.
30. Teddy Bear Baby Shower
When decorating for a baby shower, try choosing décor items that can do double duty to save effort and expense. In this blue and yellow teddy bear baby shower, the cute banner actually functions as one of the party activities.
The cards in the banner were actually “wishes for baby” and “baby prediction cards” that guests were encouraged to fill out during the party. Another example of décor doing double duty is the sweet teddy bear, which actually functioned as the guest book. Attendees could sign it as a special keepsake.
