Hello Samantha from Sweet Eats Cakes here and I am so excited to share these Little Southern Gentleman boy baby shower ideas with all of you because it is in celebration of my new nephew Finnegan James.
We chose Little Southern Gentleman baby shower decorations because Daddy to be loves lots of things about the South including the southern charm. So what better way to welcome this new little one into the family then with a little southern charm?
We focused mostly on bow ties and mustaches to tie into the theme. Hope you enjoy!
- Samantha’s guide on how to plan a little man party – there are lots of great ideas
- As well as her tutorial on how to make mustache cake pops – way easier than you would think!
As guest entered a strict dress code was enforced to make sure they were looking their best. Guests were also encouraged to sign a book for Finnegan so that he may have it as a keepsake later.
Instead of normal baby shower games I decided on activities where everyone could participate. I had two stations set-up that included a bow tie making station and an onesie making station.
The onesie making station was a huge hit! I bought the stencils and paint brushes for the onesies at Michael’s and the fabric paint in the craft section at Walmart. I printed simple instructions for everyone to follow on how to make the onesies. The stencils are technically reusable if you wash them off and let them dry. After finishing an onesie they were hung for display on a clothesline.
For the bow tie station I pre-cut all of the fabric needed to make the bow ties and then had step by step instructions on how to put it together. The best part was these were no sew bow ties so they were super simple to make but still ended up looking really cute.
The food included all things southern and it was a big hit! For desserts I chose to make three smaller baby shower cakes with different toppers and then desserts that were Southern in theme.
The desserts included mustache cake pops, mini apple pies on a stick, chocolate and strawberry mousse shooters, and chocolate chip cookies with a shot of milk.
I must say I am really happy with the way the desserts turned out! For drinks we decided to serve Lemonade and Sweet Tea to tie in with our Southern theme. I love the way the mason jars turned out.
Lastly, to include the big brother to be in the festivities I made him this shirt that says “If you mustache I am the big brother”. This is the best picture I could get of him wearing it (I told him to put his hands up so I could read the shirt) but I think he really liked it and I know he had a blast at the party!
For favors guests took home little onesie and mustache cookies.
Hope you enjoyed this Little Southern Gentleman shower. I created all of the signage with the exception of a few free pieces I got from Catch my Party.
I basically used their signage as the jumping off point and then added my own signage pieces to their already wonderful collection. All other decor and desserts we done by us Sweet Eats Cakes.
